It’s here! Cover Reveal
I thought this day would never get here. My book Reckless Beginnings was submitted for publication in July 2017. Finally, after months of editing, tweaking, and many frustrations, I am able to reveal the cover to all of you that have followed me on this journey. Getting to this stage has been a long grueling 13 months. So with no further ado; HERE IT IS! Drum roll, please 🙂
So What do you Think?
I hope you like it as much as I do. I love the soft matt colors that capture the mood of the main character Tammy mellows, who finds herself at a crossroads in her life. Struggling to recapture her identity and make sense of the chaos that surrounds her. This image shows her contemplating the decisions she has to make and whether she will make the right one.
I would love to hear your thoughts about the cover in the comments below. Did it live up to your expectations? If you saw this cover on a bookshelf, would it captivate your attention? From looking at the cover, is it a book you would purchase?
Now that the cover has been unveiled it’s time to give you some insights on other projects that have been happening during the preparation of the book launch.
I’m a Luster Lexicon Winner
A few months ago Luster Lexicon ran a contest for their Writer’s Spectacle. A place where they feature eight winning authors on their site for a month. I decided to give it a go and submitted myself as a contender. A few weeks later I received the first round of detailed questions, submitted my answers and was elated a week later when I was informed that I would be moving onto the next round. Again I answered more questions and submitted my answers. A month went by without hearing nothing. Then over the past weekend, I was told I was one of the eight winners and I would be featured on their site.
My First Podcast Interview
I will be having my first podcast interview on August 27th with Thrills & Mystery Podcast.
It will go live on September 10th. Having never done an interview before, this is a nail-biting event for me. Wish me luck! If I’m able to post the interview here, I will do so.
Launch Party/Book Signing
The launch party/book signing event will be held at the Frazier Park Branch library. This is also where we hold our monthly book club meetings. I meet later this week to schedule a date. We are thinking somewhere around mid-October. Once confirmed I will post on the site. I hope to make it a fun event with raffle prizes for a kindle-white, gift certificates, book giveaways along with bookmarks, bags and other fun items. I’ll plan on doing a reading and make some time for discussion and questions. If you are in the area, come, join us.
Sneak Peek at the Prolog is Coming Soon
If you read the interview on Luster Lexicon, you probably noticed there was a little excerpt from the prolog of Reckless beginnings. That is a tiny piece. I will be posting the full prolog, only for my readers in about two weeks. So be sure to open those newsletters so you don’t miss it.
Virtual Book Tour
A virtual book tour is scheduled for the month of October with Goddess Fish Promotions. I am also a host for this site which is why you see the host banner. This tour will make 8-10 stops a week on different book blog sites which will include, interviews and giveaways, plus a 30-day promotion on Twitter.
