Yay! The buttons are here! And soon, a steamy "Team" contest. Well, maybe not so steamy in the way your dirty minds are thinking ;) This is Steampunk, after all. Deets on the contest and fab prizes coming in December. Nearly a month until release! Okay, I'm calming down now. I would love for you to use any of these you'd like on your blogs! I didn't put the code in, because I know peeps like to size their own images to fit their sidebar. So if you do want to put one up, I'd appreciate it being linked back to the Goodreads page =D
Kristi (The Story Siren) Will be hosting the the cover reveal in December. EEP! I'm so excited for everyone to see the cover! And also, Kristi hosts the Debut Authors Challenge every year, and DESTINY'S FIRE is on the DAC list here. If you do the challenge every year, my publisher will be providing copies of DF through DAC, and you can check out the post here for the person you need to contact to receive a copy for the contest.
That's all for now! My PR, Traci, and I are working up a cool "Team" contest for December =) Buttons for Team Jace and Team Reese will be up, and you can enter for cool prizes before the official release in January. I can't believe it's so close. Kind of freaking out a little. Have a great Thanksgiving!
Amber from WinterHaven Books sent me the cutest book marks! She made these herself for an event she's doing with kids. And, I don't know about the kids, but I ADORE pink, so I had to have one =) She's super sweet to send them, and as you can see, I used them recently in reading Jessie's DESTINED. Not only are they cute, but they are functional, which is important to readers ha! Just thought I'd share. I love the cuteness!
So, yeah. I totally stink. I know I've been gone a lot. Not keeping up with blog posts, reviews at YA Bound, social networks. I believe some Twitter folks think I've kicked the bucket. But, it's just been so crazy getting ready to have a book release in January, while also trying to write/edit the new MS for my agent, and read review books, host blog tours, not to mention I have critique partners to read for. And that's just the writer part of my life. Dinners to cook, laundry to wash . . . Whatever. I shouldn't lie. I don't do that other stuff lol.
But, I do have a reason for being MIA, and some news. Are you ready for it??? I've worked super hard, and I'm still working hard (hence the MIA) but I'm nearly there. My awesome agent, Lauren, let me know this week we are taking the new MS, tentatively titled FIREBLOOD, on submission with editors in . . . wait for it . . . 2 weeks! EEP! *gasp* Sigh. *gulp* Yup. I will officially be on subs in two weeks. Let the crazy nerve-wracking wait commence!
I have some things to finish up here in the next couple of weeks to prepare, but I promise to have the DESTINY'S FIRE Countdown Giveaway up next week! So check back in then to see what's up for grabs. It's good! I promise. Thanks for hanging in there with me! (BTW, I think this is a pretty close picture of what I may look like at this point).
