Calm Before the Storm
It’s been a quiet week, which is probably a good thing. It gave me a chance to prepare for today. Later this evening I have author take-over slots with the End of Summer Book Fair, hosted by The Book Nymph https://www.facebook.com/events/1222864924425312/ and the Matanzas Moon Bookiversary Blast, hosted by Elizabeth Raven https://www.facebook.com/events/246457542415361/ My personal hour slot with the Book Fair will be 4pm CST/5pm EST, and I’ll be at the Bookiversary Blast for 7pm CST/8pm EST. Both of these events started Sept 9 and will continue through Sept 11. Check out their pages for the chance to interact with a lot of great authors, get the latest on releases, play a few games, and win some great prizes! It’s fun all the way around. Sounds like a win-win to me!
While I’m posting about online events, I want to remind everyone about the Summer Indie Book Awards that is still going on through Sept 11. I believe the Romance category will be extended for another day due to a glitch in the beginning. Phoenix Rising has been nominated in the Paranormal and Romance divisions. You’re vote would be so appreciated. http://goo.gl/pJP0qc and http://goo.gl/xHGf3r This has been an honor and an exciting journey for me. Those votes means that people know about my book.
Added to that mix, I’m getting ready for a local event. Our main library is hosting ‘Books for the Bayou’. It will be a gathering of local authors selling their latest books and meeting readers. My last book event was TNEE in April, so I’m really looking forward to this one. A small event, but still a chance to meet readers and introduce them to my world of the Kindred.
Speaking of which, I posted a few blogs about changing the name of the upcoming book. After chatting with my publisher, I realize it’s not such a good idea. So, even though the title Eternal Embrace has been used on several other books, I’m sticking with it. I’ll just have to depend on ‘The Kindred series’ to single it out of the crowd. Embrace has one more beta reader to go through, then editing and cover art in December. I’m hoping for an early 2017 publishing date, I’ll let you know later on.
For now, it’s back to work. I’ve got some promo work for Embrace, halfway done with book three, A Destiny Denied, and I’m going to be starting on a new project. More exciting news coming soon!
On that note, enjoy your weekend. Hope to see you at the End of Summer Book Fair and the Matanzas Moon Bookiversary Blast!
Till next time,
