Thursday, September 5

Release day--and the first reviews are in!

It's here! I have in my happy little hands, copies of my third novel.

There are lots of awesome things about being a writer, but one of the best is getting to hold your book in your hands for the first time. You spend all these months working on it, then submitting it and praying with fingers and toes crossed, then you get The Letter, the good one, with "contract" in the subject line  ;-)  Then it's more waiting and finally you find out your book is in the editing queue, and then there's the fun stuff like getting to fill out the spec sheet for the cover art (thank you to the hugely talented L.C. Chase for the awesome cover! And to Paul Richmond, DSP's assistant art director.) And finally, it's here.

And you hope and pray somebody likes it.

Somebody did! 

The first review is in:
4.5 Stars from Live your life, buy the book

And now, as I'm floating on air, I have to knuckle down and work on my WIP because tomorrow (Friday Sept. 6), I'll be blogging all day on the Dreamspinner Press Blog, talking about how the book came to be, running contests, and answering questions. My plan (read: hope) is post about once an hour... let's see how it works out when tomorrow comes! (But do please join me, it's going to be lots of fun!)

Also, please stop by It's Raining Men for a guest post by yours truly!

I know people read my blog, but it's very sad to only have 14 followers (although I love you all and thank you so much for following me!) So I'm asking very sweetly for folks to consider a) following my blog b) subscribing to my newsletter, or c) both.
 
Subscribing to my newsletter has the added bonus of being eligible for random giveaways throughout the year. I don't spam and you won't get junk in either your snail or email and I promise I will never, EVER give your contact info to anyone.
 
To follow my blog, scroll down on the right; just under the pic of yours truly is a list of my followers.  All you have to do is press the "Join this Site" button  :)  (I think you have to be a registered Blogger user or some such, so if you're not no worries. There's still my newsletter.)
