Despite earlier predictions, I’ve been a busy little bee these last couple months. Not only was I able to complete the editing of In Plain Sight, but after considering all my various options, I have decided to go ahead and publish it myself, rather than continue to attempt a more traditional route. While there are benefits to traditional publishing, as an author, you still end up doing a lot of the same things (in terms of marketing) and so, if I have to do most of the work anyways, I’d rather not share the rewards with anyone else. While I’m getting everything ready to go – and I will announce the release date very soon – I thought I’d give you a little teaser and reveal the awesome new cover art for the book.
I am so thrilled with this. I don’t even have the words to express myself properly. I was so worried, because I knew what I wanted (in my head), but had no idea how it would translate to the finished look and the artist – it’s like they could read my mind. It’s perfect, and I hope you all love it as much as I do.
It’s been a bit on the quite side around here. Admittedly, with the change in seasons – and despite the fact that Fall is my favorite season, once the time change hits, I’m fairly useless. I was already feeling somewhat unmotivated beforehand, and after… well… yeah…
Didn’t help either that my beloved computer finally died. I’m not even sure how old she was, but let’s just say, she was still running Vista and leave it at that. >.>
So now that I’m not in fear of losing files every time I turn my machine off, it’s time to do a little more work. And perfect timing too!!!
In Plain Sight is currently up for nomination on Kindle Scout, which at the end of 30 days, if it gets enough votes, could be picked up for a publishing contract. It’s sort of like a Kickstarter for books, except it doesn’t cost you guys anything. Win-Win!! So, even if you’ve read and reviewed an excerpt before, if you could check me out one more time and nominate me, I would seriously appreciate it!!
Best part, if it’s picked up for publishing – everyone who nominates gets a free copy of the book!!
Just realized I never posted this here. Sometimes I swear if my head wasn’t attached. XD
Excerpts of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award entries are available on Amazon.com for the public to read and review. Anyone who would like to read a couple chapters of In Plain Sight and leave a review, can do so here (or click the image below).
For those who have already left theirs, THANK YOU!!!!! I really appreciate it. ❤ ❤
