It’s here! It’s here! OMG it’s release day!
Lots of awesome stuff is happening today. Ebooks are magically appearing on Kindles everywhere. The big Release Day Celebration is going to be a blast. And, of course, it’s blog tour time!
It’s cover reveal day for my Fierce Five sister, Sarah Ashley Jones! This one is extra exciting for me, one, because Sarah designed this awesome cover herself, and two, because when this book goes live on November 13th, you’re going to get a one-chapter sneak peek at a new book I’m releasing on January 7th, 2015! Mark this one on your TBR list over on Goodreads and be sure to pick it up. It’s going to be a wild ride! [Read more…]
It is the year of the Fierce Five! Today, another of our member has something to share with you!
I am proud to present the cover to Sarah Ashley Jones’ newest completed project, Promise Me Forever, a follow-up novella to her debut novel, Promise Me This! (And a giveaway!)
Last week, on Monday, January 13th, the Fierce Five (myself, Mindy Hayes, Michele G. Miller, Sarah Ashley Jones, and CL Foster) took over the Facebook page of A Little Bit of R&R for a joint party. Now, it was definitely a fun time, but what’s pertinent here is that I released five teaser images for Evolution: ANGEL. I’ve been remiss in posting them here, but as I plan to release one, possibly two more teaser images for the book tomorrow, I thought I’d share the first batch here as well.
The indie author community is an amazing place, and I am reminded of this over and over again. The authors I have come to know have been so giving of their time and advice and consistently do whatever they can to boost those around them.
So I’m considering this my chance to give back.
So here’s the thing. I’m a weirdo. This statement probably surprises no one who’s interacted with me ever. On social media I tend to be pretty outgoing and vocal, and this is also true about me face to face… well, once I’ve gotten to know you some.
I like to call myself an awkward turtle. Here’s why. I’m the kind of person who, when faced with a new social situation, will find the one or two people I know and attach myself to them because I am, frankly, terrified of taking those first steps in introductions. I imagine I come off as standoffish or maybe bored, but this is categorically untrue. Awkward Turtle has simply retreated into her shell until another less-awkward turtle has knocked on said shell and given her permission to come out and interact with the others. I have never been the kind of turtle to strike up a conversation with another strange turtle because I am horribly, terribly awful at breaking the ice. My mind goes totally blank and I can’t think of a single thing to say to engage the other turtles. I go into every new interaction assuming the other person has zero interest in who I am or what I have to say, probably because then there’s no risk of disappointment. This is who I am. This zero-expectation was my safety net growing up. It’s a holdover from childhood, when almost every interaction I had was inevitably painful for me. While I’m working on changing the little voice in my head that fills me with doubts and self-criticism, the scars still remain.
