Back To Blogging, Updates, WOVEN Blog Tour Sign Up, and "900" Members ARC Giveaway Extravaganza!


Guess who's back? And I'll tell you what - it's good to be back!

For the foreseeable future, there will be new posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Sound good? I'm still touching up a bit, so don't mind the cleanup crew. I'm really to set this ship into hyper-drive, so let me fill you in on what's happened since my leave of absence. You may want to grab a snack and-grape seed juice:

Besides visiting my family in Illinois and much needed repairs to my home, I meditated over my online presence and how to go about being consistent with it, as well as pushing the envelope to finish The Undead Road and working on first round edits for Woven from my publisher. The best thing about going over edits is that you fall in love with your story again. A few adjustments later - it reads soooo much better! We've also been very fortunate to have some BIG endorsers! You'll get to see who they are when the time is right.

Still waiting on the cover, but we expect to have one before this month is out. We're also cutting a trailer that - seriously, this is awesome! - will literally transport you to our land of Avërand.

Speaking of covers and trailers, NOW is the time to sign up for the Woven Cover Reveal and/or Book Blog Tour! If you're interested, send me a quick email here and I will send you all the information you will need when it becomes available. Unfortunately, we're already full on ARC requests for review, but Michael and I are open to interviews and guest posts. Or, if you just want information about the book and use it to do your thing, that's fine too! Extra points for creativity.

I'd like to thank you all in advance for your enthusiasm and believing in our story. It would be an honor to share this journey with you all.

Sign ups are now open! We look forward to hearing from you.

"900" Members ARC Giveaway Extravaganza! 

Watch out, Cosmic Crew ... I'm going totally tribbles! We've breached the 900 Member mark, which means we're long overdue for a hull upgrade. We may have to move into a cruiser. Celebration time!

Below are the goods I'm giving away, including a signed ARC of Chad Morris's The Inventor's Secret. Click on the covers to read more about these teenage witches, time travelers, and True Sight-ers!


Bonus Prize: an ARC of the next big ghost story, Woven!

Here's how to play: in the comments, tell me what book you'd like to win - you can pick one, or two, or all of them. I'll enter you in a raffle all this week and announce the winners next Monday, the 8th.

You don't have to be a member of this site to participate, and I DO ship wherever mail is delivered. This giveaway is open to everyone!

But first, a Shout-Out needs to be given to those who have joined us and made this giveaway possible. Do me a favor - check them out!

  2. Congrats on 900! That's amazing.

    I can't blog every day - I've known that for a long time. And I'm changing the format of my blog posts a bit for Wednesdays which will actually make my blogging even easier :)

    And I can't wait to get my hands on Woven.

  33. Congrats on reaching 900 followers. And it's really good that you cut back the blogging. I can imagine with work and your writing deadlines that more blogging is too much.

    Let someone else who can read your awesome books you're giving away win. I have too many books to read right now.
