Today’s a big day! (Well, at least for me.) I’m exactly two months away from publishing Fortune’s Shadow, and I couldn’t be more excited. My book baby will finally be out into the world on April 26th!
To celebrate, I’m sharing the absolutely stunning cover that Ravven has created for me. (If you ever need a book cover designed, I highly recommend her. She is amazing.)
Isn’t it incredible? I’ve been telling my friends on Twitter that I’d better make sure my words live up to it. 🙂 So I’ve been focusing my efforts this month on working through the excellent feedback I’ve received from my talented and highly supportive fiction editor Maggie Morris.
As soon as the editing is done, I’ll be creating an electronic version of my book in ePub (Kobo) and mobi (Kindle) formats so I can share my story with advance reviewers before the final proofreading and distribution. If you’re interested in becoming one of my ARC readers (and receiving a free copy in consideration for an honest review), please reach out to me, either through my contact page or comments below. I’m planning on sending out a few advance copies in March.
Here’s the current blurb describing my book, so you can see if it’s for you:
“You thought you could live without me…”
Jocelyn “Jinxy” Lancaster is having a horrible week. Her dream of becoming a famous indie musician is going nowhere, her day job in her tourist-friendly hometown of Bridgepoint is in danger of disappearing, and to top it all off, it’s almost the ten-year anniversary of her Mom’s death.
When her best friend Grace gives her a wish keeper to help change her luck, she decides she’s got nothing left to lose.
At first it seems like she’s on her way to getting everything she desires. Then the people close to her begin acting very strangely. She’s having trouble remembering things, and at night, she’s being haunted by dreams she can’t explain.
Then the best night of her life happens—and all hell breaks loose.
Now it’s up to Jocelyn to try and undo what she’s created and save her hometown from chaos and destruction. And maybe, if she’s very lucky, she can even save herself…
I’ll be sharing more with you on my adventures in book formatting and distribution as I get closer to my preorder release date (in the hope that I can help others with this process), but in the meantime, thanks so much for reading my post and supporting me as I go through my self-publishing journey!
I’m so excited!
