Sorry for the radio silence. I keep hoping life will take a giant chill pill, but very clearly that’s not gonna happen any time soon. You’d think with all the time I now have to sit at home I could use at least some of that for writing. I mean, it’s not like I don’t still have at least 3 projects in various states of completion (Darkharte, in particular, is so close to being a finished manuscript it’s not even funny). But my brain just can’t.
My mental health was a little funky even before the current situation, and now my anxiety is through the roof and my brain is in the constant state of hyper-alertness, and anytime I try to focus on actually writing something it just… flails. I can’t focus on much of anything other than stuff that requires zero brainpower. Leverage re-watch for the win!!
But there is one thing that I did do. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and since I am unable to do anything else constructive, I figured I could at least get this done. As much as I loved the original cover for In Plain Sight, the more I’ve lived with it, the more I felt that it was just a little misleading. Ry and Eli’s story is, of course, a central part of the book, but so is Ry and Matt’s. And even more importantly, and what I really wanted to convey in a cover is that it’s all Ry’s story — a young woman who risks everything to save the people that she loves most in the world.
So, the new cover is essentially the same as the old one, but with one very distinct change. I hope you like it! In any case, definitely let me know what you think!
The current paperback version available on Amazon still has the old cover (the new one is updating, but if you give it a few days it should be good to go)
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a whole year since I released Ry and Eli’s story into the wild! That it immediately became an Amazon Hot New Release was a dream come true, and since then it’s continued to capture the hearts of new fans from around the world.
To celebrate the one year anniversary of In Plain Sight, I’m offering the Kindle version for 99 cents (US and UK markets) and for those of you who still like physical books to hold in your hands, I have signed copies available for $15 each (this includes tax and shipping).
There truly aren’t enough words to express how grateful I am for the love and support I’ve received from everyone throughout this journey!! Thank you!!
PS… anyone who adds a picture of themselves in comments reading In Plain Sight will be entered to win a free audiobook version from Audible! Entries must be posted by August 31st and winners will be announced on September 2nd.
I know I’ve been quiet, and I’d like to say it’s because I’ve been editing Darkharte like mad, but alas, I’ve been sort of working on something else. Which is good… but also bad, because I definitely wasn’t looking at starting anything new. XD
I know the new year is starting out a bit rough for a lot of folks, so if you are one of the ones for whom things are going well (and especially if you’ve been having an awesome year so far), maybe look for ways to help those who don’t have it so great right now.
In the meantime, don’t forget that you have until January 31st, 2019 (11:59pm PST) to submit your guess via the Contact page for which character from In Plain Sight you think will be the focus of the planned sequel (and why). The first 5 people to correctly guess will win a free audio version of In Plain Sight. Winners will be notified and receive their Audible promo code by February 4th, 2019. If no one gets the right answer (and honestly, the right answer isn’t as easy to guess as one might think), I will randomly draw 5 names from everyone who submits. You can find the original contest post here.
Happy guessing!! 🙂
PS… on the subject of reminders – if you’ve read IPS and absolutely loved it please consider taking a couple minutes to review it on Amazon or Goodreads (or both). I would really appreciate it!
It’s official – both the Kindle version (currently $3.99) and the physical copies (currently $9.98) of In Plain Sight have been released!!! I’ll be hanging out tonight on Facebook if anyone wants to drop by and celebrate with me. Currently, it’s only available on Amazon, however, in the coming weeks it will likely be available in other places, though at a slightly higher price (due to things that are completely out of my control).
Once you read Ry and Eli’s story, please let me know what you think, not only Amazon reviews (which are always welcome), but feel free to message me here or on FB. I am already aware of some minor formatting issues with the Kindle version, and though I’ve pushed a quick fix for some of them, I am working on a full re-formatting. So hopefully that will be up soon, once I’m done fiddling with it.
This is it!! In Plain Sight will be officially released tomorrow!! Have I mentioned how excited I am? Well… I’M EXCITED!!!!!
But also nervous, of course. So once you read it, please leave a review and let me know what you think of it. I hope you love Ry and Eli’s story as much as I do.
The Kindle version will definitely be available tomorrow (not sure if it will automatically poof from pre-order to available right at midnight or if there is some sort of lag involved), and physical copies should follow soon after (well… as soon as my lazy butt gets out of bed and pushes the publish button). Whether they will be available the same day or not, I don’t know, but generally within a day or so at the most, I would think.
It’s hard to believe it, but In Plain Sight will released into the wild this time next week. From concept to completion, the telling Ry’s story has been a long time coming – over 10 years. For those of you who have stuck with me along the way, there aren’t words enough to express how thankful I am for your support and feedback. I couldn’t have done it without you.
Anyway, to celebrate, I’m having a little release party over on Facebook on August 7th from 7p to 11p EST. Drop on by anytime during that time to hang out and party! Lots of fun and maybe even a few giveaways!! Can’t wait!!!
PS… Don’t forget that I’m donating 50% of all presale royalties to help a friend in need (you can read all about it here). So it’s a good time to get a great book to read and help someone out of a rough situation. ❤
My debut novel, In Plain Sight, will be released on August 7, 2018!! The Kindle version is currently available for pre-order on Amazon. Print copies will also be available by that date (not sure about pre-order yet).
For those of you who have been working with me on this project over the years, you may recall that particular day is a significant one in the book. Once I realized how close I was to getting everything together and ready for publishing , it quickly became clear that was the perfect day to launch Ry and Eli’s story into the universe.
I’m still working on pricing for the print copies – that’s my main hold up at the moment, now that I’ve finished all the last minute editing. My original set up is pricing a lot higher than I want it to (due to some of the distribution options I’ve picked), so I’m going to fiddle around with it some more to see if I can’t get the price down some. Either way, the Kindle version will be $3.99 when it’s released, and for those that don’t have a Kindle, there is a free Kindle reader app that is available for almost any device. But if you are like me, having a physical book in-hand is a lovely thing, so I will definitely continue to look for a solution that allow that happen in the best possible way.
I’m so happy the way this all worked out and I really can’t wait to share my book with you all.
