I’ve been working with Ash K. Alexander for about a month to create this beautiful masterpiece. She’s a genius, you guys. I really am so, so pleased with these results. Seriously, from the little bit that I gave her, she came up with… THIS! And even more things too! I have headers and icons and a bookmark design! It’s way more than I ever expected to receive. Basically, if you need a book cover, I highly recommend you go check her out 🙂

Just another really great example of Ash’s work!

So the next logical question one might ask after such a stunning reveal: when’s the release date??? Well, since this is my first book (which means I’m still learning how the publishing process works), and I’m still working with my editors, I don’t really feel comfortable giving out a hard date yet, but I think I can safely say that the book should be ready by October!

On that note, if you want to be the first to know the hard release date, and any other deals or sales that I might come up with during this process, might I suggest that you sign up for my newsletter? 🙂

I’m only using this as a vehicle to get you the latest info the soonest regarding my novels and any deals I might have. There will be no spam (of course!) and I promise not to stuff your inbox full of useless junk. That’s what my blog is for! ;P You’ll be the first to know any important information and you won’t have to worry about missing it here on the blog.

Okay, I think that’s about it. Let me know what you guys think of the cover, I’m really excited to hear what you guys have to say!

“Gandalf and Bilbo rode behind the Elvenking, and beside them strode Beorn, once again in man’s shape, and he laughed and sang in a loud voice upon the road. So they went on until they drew near to the borders of Mirkwood, to the north of the place where the Forest River ran out.”

Have You Hugged A Book Today?- June 2017

ReadingChallengeJune17

Whoops! I kind of… forgot about reading this month. I’ve been catching up on podcasts (Writing Excuses, The Creative Penn, and the Sell More Books Show to name a few) instead of doing audio books, and that’s really cut into my reading. Hopefully I’ll get caught up and be able to jump back into reading next month, but for now let me show you what I have been reading.

“They buried Thorin deep beneath the Mountain, and Bard laid the Arkenstone upon his breast.

“‘There let it lie till the Mountain falls!’ he said. ‘May it bring good fortune to all his folk that dwell here after!’ Upon his tomb the Elvenking then laid Orcrist, the elvish sword that had been taken from Thorin in captivity. It is said in songs that it gleamed ever in the dark if foes approached, and the fortress of the dwarves could not be taken by surprise.”
