I'm out of things to post about and since Leaves of Fall is up for pre-order, I figured I may as well pimp (because that's what smart authors do) it with a teaser of the prologue.
In a small town nestled in the heart of North America, the trees moved. People halted their daily actives and stared with mouths agape. They snapped pictures and filmed video as the trees assembled in a parking lot. The trees leaned toward the cars. Their leaves grazed the metal in a gentle caress, in an almost curious way. When the trees reached for the humans, they reached back, in awe of the trees’ movements and the history they were partaking in.
At the end of the month is release day for Leaves of Fall and I need help spreading the word. If you'd like to help, fill out the handy dandy doc below and I will get everything you need for a post to you before May 17th.
Release day is May 21st and you can post anytime that week. If you'd like a review copy, you can still snag an eARC at Booksprout. Thanks for any help you give. I appreciate it.
PS: If I'm forgetting anything let me know. I'm writing this while still recovering from the vacation in England so my brain is insisting on naps instead of work.
PPS: I wrote this on May 4th, hence the Star Wars related title.
Every Friday is Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain and L.G. Keltner.
The rules are blog about something good in your life. It can be something little or something big, but the goal is to find the positive in life and celebrate it. Then hop around the linky list on Lexa's blog and see what others are celebrating.
This week I'm celebrating having my posts for the A to Z Challenge done. I only had a few to write, so it was only a matter of finding some words to spark inspiration.
I'm also celebrating getting Leaves of Fall up for pre-order on Amazon and Smashwords. By release day on May 21st, I should have Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes links. I'll be looking for blogs to host me on release day, so if you're interested, let me know in the comments.
Last I'm celebrating the possibility of warmer weather. It rained this week, so everything is now snowy and icy, but I was able to go outside without my coat and not freeze. Progress toward spring????
What are you celebrating? How's the weather in your neighborhood? Do you want to help me spread the word on Leaves of Fall?
Leaves of Fall is about 99% ready to go. My plan is to read it one more time before release in search of those elusive typos. I have a release day (end of May) picked out and my PA, Sunrise Author Services is wrangling up some reviewers and guest posts, but I figured I might as well do, too.
If you like young adult fantasy set in a post-apocalyptic world then I have just the story for you!
Armory was born into a world torn apart by war between man and nature. Trees are the enemy. But when she’s kidnapped by nomads and taken far from her home, a tree nymph is the one who comes to her rescue.
