Hello again, everyone!
Yesterday I started sending ARCs out yesterday, and I nearly had a panic attack in the process. For those of you scratching your heads, ARC = Advanced Reader Copy of my book. The lovelies on my ARC team will hopefully love my book and sing its praises all over the Internet. That's the goal at least.
That aside, my book series has a name now!
Cool, right? Also, fun fact, it's looking like a four book series. Some...developments happened over the holiday weekend and I ended up adding another book to the count. I'm SUPER excited where the series is going. There are going to be ALL THE FEELS!
Well, I need to get back to working on book two of the series, especially if I want it out by November/December! :)
Until next time!
Preorders are LIVE!!!
It's here! Preorder day is here! Holy BUCKETS!!!
I'm loosing track of all the surreal moments the past few months have brought, but seeing preorder orders rolling in already is definitely up there.
People are already buying my book! EEEEEEEEEE!!!!! I CANNOT tell you how exciting that is! I have done a happy dance for every order that has come in so far, and I will do a happy dance for every order that comes in!
You like me, you really like me!
All my hard work is paying off and I feel so blessed and grateful and overjoyed! (I'm also a little stressed, but who isn't on some level?)
For those who didn't get my cute newsletter (you're missing out, for one thing), here are the links to where you can preorder/purchase my book:
Looking for the Amazon e-book preorder link? It's Here!
Looking for the signed paperback preorder link? It's Here!
I can't wait to show you the book swag that comes with the paperback preorders! There are at least two cool things, maybe three.
Okay, okay, okay. I should
The Proof is in....my hands!
If you follow my on social media, you already saw the hot mess express I became when I opened my mail today and held my book for the first time! In case you've missed it, the video is up on TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook.
Here's a few snapshots that give you the basic idea:
Yes, I cried. A lot. There's a solid chance I cried more today than at my wedding...no, I cried more than my husband did at our wedding. (If you know, you know.) Truthfully, I allowed/forced myself to stop and really take in the moment and not just rush on to "what's next." How's that for honesty?
I wanted to describe how it felt, I have a way with words, you know, but it's so hard. The closest description I can think of is: Now I know what it feels like to hold a dream come true.
I cannot tell you the pride I feel holding this book in my hands. the days, weeks, months, and years that have led up to this moment have been worth every heartache, doubt, tear, and broken keyboard.
Don't forget, preorders start May 4! Only 12 days away! EEEEE!!!! I'll have all the information for that in another post and newsletter, I promise. I can tell you it will be available on Amazon and here on my website.
I still have some bookmarks if you'd like one (or more). Click here for more info on that.
Also, I'll be sending out ARC application info in one of my upcoming newsletters. Make sure you sign up so you don't miss anything.
Thank you for joining me on my journey. I love you all so much!
Until next time,
This has been an insane couple weeks! I did not think this close to 'preorder launch day' I'd be frantically and completely redesigning the cover to my novel, but here I am!
Why the redesign? Well, when you have the question: "Is this a YA/Teen book?" asked when they see your cover, and you have written an adult, contemporary clean romance novel, you know something has gone off the rails. It's a blessing I have a lot of people and sources I can poke out when I need advice/input/feedback. (Special shout-out to "Twin Jenn" and Sarah for helping me out!) My crew is THE best and I couldn't do any of this without their help and support!
Oh, did you want to see the before and after? I think I can do that for you. <3 The image on the left is the original, and the image on the right is the new and improved!
Thanks for reading!
Until next time,
Hello and Welcome!
Welcome to my author journey. It's been a long time coming, but I'm nearly there! (and by 'nearly there' I mean my first book is nearly published!)
Even Angels Fall has been in the works for years. It's only been in the last several months that I've seriously focused on finishing the story and editing it and actively pursuing publishing it. For those who don't already know, I am going the self-publishing route. I am SO excited!
