Book Promotion

Kickstarter and General Updates

Good morning, readers! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, I have to admit. We’ve got print materials (including business cards with a typo, doh), the Kickstarter for Burner has started pretty strongly, and we’re receiving our paperback proof this week. I’ve got a digital proof to okay for the hardback, and then we’ll get a proof ordered, and then the main order placed once that’s okayed. Like I said, it’s been busy.

My first appearance for the book will be April 14th-16th at Indiana Comic Con. You’ll be able to find me at tables 1109/1208 with Indy PopCon. We’ll have copies of Burner for sale along with bookmarks and (potentially) art.

We’ve also got a giveaway going right now. If you fill out this survey about the first chapter of Burner, you can win a $25 gift certificate. It only takes a few minutes to fill out, so take the time and win some easy cash!

Alright, back to work. I’m hoping I can get a decent post out soon, though it may have to wait for all of this to slow down a bit. I hope you’re all good, and that you’re enjoying the lovely weather that Spring is bringing with it. Talk to you soon!


Quick (and late!) Update

Hey guys! Things are really taking off right now. We’re getting Burner off to the printer tomorrow to get a proof copy before ordering our first round of paperbacks. I’m also making my final changes to the manuscript, as well as getting other print materials together. I’ll be making an announcement about our publication date soon, along with making the digital copy available for pre-order on Amazon.

As such, I’ve gotten COMPLETELY bogged down with work. I’m afraid regular posts are probably going to stop for a bit while I keep chugging along with publication and the marketing that goes with it. If anyone wants to find out what I’m doing, you’re welcome to find me on Twitter. DMs are open, so feel free to message me if you don’t want to tweet at me instead.

Thanks for your patience! We’re getting close to the end with Burner!


Prepping for Publication

Well, we’re getting closer to a publication date with Burner. I’m thinking it’ll be sometime in March or April, depending on what happens with the Kickstarter preparation. I decided to prep my own manuscript for print and digital, rather than paying someone to do it, and MAN, do I understand why people pay for that service. I’m thankful that I have my background in graphic design because it made it a lot easier to get everything looking decent. It was still a pretty intense process, though. My eyes were burning by the end of it. Still, the print version is about 99% done (I’m waiting on two art pieces), and the digital version won’t take much longer to be finalized.

It’s nice to be getting closer to the end point. 🙂

My husband is out of town this weekend, which means heavy-duty parenting. I’ll try to get a more lengthy/weighty post out on Monday, when he’s home.
