Yes, I went there.
Now that I've got your attention let me tell you why. I'm re-releasing my first book, Ardeur, on August 19th, 2011 through Red Hot Publishing. Just two short weeks away. Exciting times!
Anyone who follows me on Twitter or Facebook knows I've been hard at work with my editor getting the book polished to within an inch of its life. With that goes a huge thank you to Shontrell Wade of Wade-Staten Services. You rock!
I took some time off from the craziness of formatting and editing (for others) to work on the new cover yesterday. You may be familiar with the old/current cover:
While cute, I'm not in love with it and decided that - with a fresh new face on the inside - there should be one of the outside as well. I posted the new covers on Facebook last night, but I'll put them here too.
Here's the eBook cover:
And here's the print cover:
It came to my attention during edits that a glossary of terms and characters would be handy, and so... I'm going to include one. Seems not everyone knows what a Nephilim or Dhampyre is.... Who knew?
I'm hoping to have all of the technical stuff done by the weekend so that I can turn my focus toward setting up reviews, guest blogs, etc... My wonderful publisher, Red Hot Publishing, is working on scheduling a book blog tour and I've got my fingers crossed that it goes well.
Some of you may be wondering about the sequel, Cassiela. I've put it aside for the time being. The book needs a massive rewrite and I've got a few other projects that need completing before I can get back to it. My plate is a little full and, with surgery scheduled for mid-October, I need to clear off as much as I can before I'm laid up for two weeks.
Two novellas and a revision on a full length novel in two months? Sure, I can do it! LOL, I have to.
On that note, back to work I go.
