I’ve been talking about it for awhile off and on, and the day finally arrived when my awesome newly published book showed up on my doorstep. Imagine my excitement as I opened up the box and held my very first published book in my hands! Then I immediately imagined doing the same with all the other books to come (I’m working on two books right now in fact). Finally after years of hard work, I have something very physical to hold in my hands!
I knew this day would be coming. So over the past few months, I made many book release plans and even came up with some release dates, but in the publishing world release dates can be a tricky thing. Ultimately, I opted for short, sweet, and simple by doing a cover reveal post and another post when the book is up on Amazon. Another reason for this simplicity is I have been and still am heavily preoccupied by our family’s upcoming move to Florida.
In fact, I still can’t give a exact release date so people can start buying the book because I am going to Florida very early this coming Tuesday and will be in Florida for ten days looking for our new home! I am in the process of working with Create Space to get it up and available on Amazon, but I’m not sure if it will be done before I go. I’m not taking my laptop on this Florida trip because it’s supposed to be a little bit of a getaway for me too (hitting two birds with one stone, three if you count spending time with my husband who’s already been in Florida the last six weeks working his new job).
Well, you’ve heard me talking about it for a few months, now the time is close for when a super awesome anthology I’ve been working on with Denise Wyant is almost here. These short eight stories are filled with back to school romances (only adults are allowed folks!) ranging from male/male romances to regular female/male (me, me, I did one of those!), and it’s brimming with hot steamy relationships that leave you panting for more. I know it’s not my normal science fiction or speculative fiction, but sometimes you just got to do something fun and writing Gatekeeper was a whole lot of fun.
But I didn’t just stop at contributing a story to this anthology. On no. I also did all the graphics as well, including a teaser, an advertisement, and this super awesome cover that’s coming up. Did I mention I do graphic designing on the side (the way side folks because writing is my true passion)? But what can I say, I like to mix things up, because just writing can get a little boring sometimes (come on you know it can!). lol…
Anyways, if you like a good juicy romance (or eight of them). Look for Apple Bites coming up on August 25th. And without any other annoying delays (or words in parenthesis), here is my super awesome cover (because let’s face it black and white is totally super cool and sexy half naked guys is always an awesome thing.. and ha ha I lied about the words in parenthesis part).
