It’s book release day! Storm is officially out in the world!
I cried all the way to work yesterday*, because I’m so touched that people are reading my work. It’s one thing to spend a year (or more) writing a book in a darkened basement; it’s entirely another to know your characters are out in the world.
I know what the economy is like (hey, I work in finance), so it’s a lot easier for me to encourage you to go download the free short story Elemental. Give it a try. Then, if you’re interested in Storm and you have some spare cash, and you want to throw a little support my way, it’s less than ten bucks in whatever format you buy it in, wherever books are sold. (Hey, if you’re not a reader, you can always give it to someone who is.)
And I’m all over the internet again!
Shirley has another character interview over on her blog as part of the Epic Blog Tour, where the twins threaten to pin Chris down and … well, you’ll have to read it.
I missed a link yesterday, where I was talking about music and its influence on my writing (including links to badass songs on YouTube), including a chance to win a copy of Storm. Go visit!
FINALLY, I’m giving away two 20-page critiques for YA authors over on Kat’s blog, as part of her Crits for Water campaign. Kat is incredible, and she’s running a huge blog event to raise money for clean water. It’s truly incredible, and worth a look. Please consider pledging for a chance to win a critique. I’m honest and fair and not mean, I promise!!
* – Yes, I really did cry. My husband actually called me while I was sobbing, and he kept saying, “Oh my god, what’s wrong? HON. WHAT’S WRONG?” And when I finally got out, “I’m just so happy that people are reading my book,” I could practically hear him rolling his eyes on the other end of the phone.
