Blood for Blood News!

For anyone who hasn’t seen my website home page, the cover for Blood for Blood is up with the blurb so you can see what book 2 is about. I absolutely love the cover! Go check it out if you haven’t already. The release date is set for Jan. 2, and as soon as I go over everything to check for missed errors, the ebook will be available for pre-order on Amazon. I’ll post to let everyone know when the pre-order is up and running. I will also be doing a book release signing on Jan. 6 in Claremore at Boarding House Books if anyone would like to come meet me and pick up a signed copy. I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks as Keira’s story continues….

Quick Update.

Hey guys, just a quick update. The edits and formatting for Blood for Blood are finally done. I can’t thank my editor Kristen Hamilton, of Kristen Corrects, enough for her help. I have launched my design contest for the book cover on 99designs, and will post it as soon as I have picked a winner. I don’t know about you, but I am so excited!! I’ll keep you posted on when I think the release date will be. Have a great day!

Book cover for Blood Cure!

I just chose my book cover for Blood Cure!

As everyone knows, I launched my book cover contest several days ago on 99designs. After a lot of back and forth, requests and revisions, I picked a winner that I feel best represents my vision for Keira, even though it wasn’t the vision I originally started with. I had an idea in my head that I thought would work and look really good, but after several attempts and fails, I decided to let the designers have creative leeway, and boy am I glad I did.

The winning design by B & J took my breath away, and made my heart skip a beat – which is what I had really hoped would happen. I don’t know if I can explain the emotions of seeing Keira and Blood Cure brought to life for the first time, or explain why I cried when I saw the final version of the cover. It has to do with working so hard on something for 4.5 years, pouring my heart and soul into it, working tirelessly to make sure I do everything right, and then seeing it culminate into a beautiful book cover that will forever be tied to this book…like I said, lots of emotions, and a little bit of crying.

As soon as I get the finalized files from the designer, I will post the cover on my home page, Facebook, and Twitter pages. I hope you like it as much as I do. Feel free to leave comments on what you think about it. 🙂
