A little bit about what is going on.

I've been busy writing. It makes it hard for me to keep up with everything else, because when I am writing other things tend to land on the back burner. Well, except for the stuff concerning my daughter. She is always foremost in my mind.

So, this is going to be a quick little post to let you know about some things that are going on with the book. Sales are still relatively good, considering that I am a brand new author. Oddly enough, I have noticed that good sale days tend to alternate between Amazon and Barnes and Noble. (knock on wood it keeps going that way.) Let me clarify what a good sale day means for me. It means anything that is better than a no sale day ;) I still get excited by one sale. Two or three? Watch out... I might be signing and dancing around the house! Anything more than that and I am not fit to be around. It's hard to hold a conversation with someone that is squealing ;)  Okay, I'm not that squeal-y, but it does make me pretty chipper.

I got the first proof for the paperback version of Mortal Obligation. It is hard to explain what it feels like to hold that physical copy in my hands. To open it up and see the words that I wrote, that I slaved over, written in ink... Well, to quote a famous commercial: Priceless. I had to make a couple of little changes, but will be ordering the next proof in a day or so. Once I make sure that everything is correct on that one I will hit the publish button. I will make sure that I post on here and on Facebook when the paperback is available.

In other news, I have some fun promotional things coming up. Guest posts on several different blogs, interviews, and book reviews. I will be sure to let you know when those go up as well. If you haven't purchased your copy of Mortal Obligation yet, there will be some giveaway opportunities too. I am also working on doing a giveaway here on my blog. Possibly a signed paperback, an eBook or two, and something a little more fun. I also have some outtakes that I will be posting from Book One of the trilogy, that Paden and Roland fans might find interesting >;o) Let's just say they have had conversations that poor Ree has no clue about.

So far, Book Two (nope, still not telling you the title) has been a lot of fun to write. I hope that translates well for the readers. Keep checking back, because I will be posting some teasers eventually. (I already have one picked out... *fans self*)

Hm, speaking of #2, I need to go work on the current chapter.

Adieu, people! I hope you guys are having a great week.

  2. Music to my ears! LOL. Seriously, though. That makes me want to do a happy dance.

    Book 2 will be out before Christmas. I don't want to be any more specific about it at this point. When I get the first draft finished I should have a better idea.

  3. I actually got my first shipment of books. I know exactly what you mean. It's so surreal and makes me bounce and giggle and generally be obnoxious.... :D
