I actually debated doing the theme reveal for the challenge this year. After all, my theme is the same as the last two years and feature I try to do regular here. But I like the theme reveal because it's a great way to find blogs I want to follow during the challenge.
Time to meet Lake Divine. If my beta readers and critique partners and editor are anything to go by, Lake is going to be a popular character. It must be his tragic past and the way the world stomps on him. You can't help but want to give him love.
He deserves it, doesn't he?
The month of March is going to be filled with Angels, but I'm going to take the spotlight away from Michael for a day to show you something I did recently that I'm kind of proud of. I made a book cover for my YA LGBT Paranormal (is there any other kinds of story worth writing?) story, Out of Secrets.
If you know me, then it might not be a surprise. I was an art major for a little while and had plans on being an artist. But I SUUUUUUUCK at Photoshop (or Gimp.) It's not for the lack of trying. I just can't wrap my brain around the damn program.
So when I say I made a book cover, it's a big deal. I mean, look at it. LOOK!
With Friday Quick Fic suspended until after the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I needed something to fill Fridays. Since I have a book releasing soon, I thought what could be more evil than to post teasers? I'm going to torment you with snippets from Michael in hopes you won't be able to resist the buy button.
The other day, I went to visit Mom and Dad. I forget for what, but I had a secondary goal of trying to see if I could find our copy of Where The Wild Things Are. I remember reading the book when I was little. It was such a fun book. A bit crazy to think the first edition is worth a huge chunk of money now. And good reason to find it. Sadly, our copy isn't a first edition, but while going through the books, I came across some interesting first editions.
It's time for the Insecure Writer's Support group again. IWSG is posted the first Wednesday of every month. It is the brain child of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh. Get your fears and insecurities out or give words of encouragement. We're writers, let's support each other!
Okay, seriously, wasn't it just IWSG last week? How can this year already be flying by? I'm not busy with getting a new series ready to publish or anything. Oh wait, yes I am.
Y'all. Y'ALL! This is really happening. I'm finally getting a new book published. It feels a bit surreal. I'm not really dreaming, am I? After the struggle that was 2014, it feels strange to be so productive and actually have something to show for it.
I couldn't have done it without any of you. Still can't. Release day is fast approaching, and once again, I'm in need of victims. I'll make it painless, I promise. *shifty eyes* Just fill out the form below and I will hook you up with the info you need to help spread the word that I am not a slacker. I am an author! (Feels good to say that right now. I was starting to doubt it.)
