Something amazing started happening in early August, and I’ve been so ridiculously busy with work and, well, life, and I haven’t had the chance to post about it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been telling everyone who will listen, I just haven’t had the chance to sit down and type up a formal post about the fact that one of my dreams is finally coming true: I’m going to be a published author!
My 2015 NaNoWriMo* project, A Shine That Defies the Dark, is going to be published by Changing Tides Publishing on December 5, 2017. It’s a little bit crazy how it all happened, I’ll definitely post more about that soon. However, I’ve just spent three days updating my website, figuring out how to set up a newsletter and updating all my social media accounts so they all seem like they belong to the same person! I am NOT tech savvy, so it’s been a test to my level of determination (lucky I’m as stubborn as I am technologically challenged).
There are lots of goodies to come. I’m excited about the book release and I want everyone else to share in the excitement. There will be giveaways, and chances to score some extras (maybe a peak at a deleted scene…). Please sign up for my newsletter, so you can be notified of all the giveaways and fun events leading up the release of A Shine That Defies the Dark.
The cover reveal is scheduled for this Tuesday, September 27, 2017.
Also, and I just found this out about 30 minutes ago, my book is already listed on Goodreads and you can read the blurb here.
*For those who don’t know, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. It takes place every November and the goal is to write a full novel (at least 60,000 words) in 30 day!
