The High Crown Chronicles release date is nearly here. It comes out tomorrow (9/7/2020).
I can’t even tell you how excited I am for this. This release has been years in the making. I actually started writing The High Crown Chronicles for my 2012 NaNoWriMo project. I did not win that year, and spent the next seven years finishing and then revising this novel to make it what it finally became (really..the gods just ended up as a plot point a year ago!).
So, of course, this being 2020 and Covid-19 being this thing with ridiculously long tentacles that reaches into everything, I found out just a week ago that the print copies are delayed at the warehouse. So for anyone who ordered a print copy, I am so sorry for that delay. If you ordered a print copy, let me know and I will mail you a bookmark, map of the kingdoms, and an autographed bookplate as my apology for the delay.
I’m going to be doing my first Facebook Live event tomorrow (9/7/2020) at 1:00 pm MST. I also have a “Show Me Your Crown” giveaway going on my Facebook & Instagram. All you have to do to enter for a chance to win a free autographed copy of The High Crown Chronicles (yes, I actually have a few print copies!–no waiting), some High Crown swag, and a $10 Amazon gift card is post a photo of you wearing a crown, or holding your copy of The High Crown Chronicles in the comments section. I’ll be picking a winner on Friday, 9/11/20. Also during my Facebook Live time tomorrow, I’ll be giving details about the next book in The High Crown Chronicles series (i may have a release date!).
In case anyone doesn’t know, The High Crown Chronicles series also has a theme song. I’m very fortunate to have a talented musician in my family (my 17 year old son), and when I asked him to create a song, he obliged. I gave him an overview of some story line points for the entire series and told him to make it dark and vengeful. He totally came through (as a warning, it does have some language, and is rap, so if you’re opposed to either, you may not appreciate it as much as I do). But I adore the song, so here’s The High Crown by Fade.
Pre-release excitement is keeping me busy. There’s currently a release tour happening on Instagram. Bookstagrammers will be posting amazing images of The High Crown Chronicles all week.
This morning the theme on the Melanie’s Muses Facebook show was for The High Crown Chronicles, check out Melanie and Greg in their crowns.
So…until tomorrow my friends…
