You know Alice. The one from Wonderland. Her. I’ve stepped through the looking glass and everything is strange and exciting and I sometimes feel a bit lost.
That’s what it’s like being a writer who’s on a self-publishing journey. It’s a mixed bag of emotions EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Thankfully I have the support of amazing people who keep me grounded when I start feeling a bit dodgy. ❤
Dodginess aside (Is that a word?) things are going swimmingly. I’m on track with my goals and I while I’m not ready to announce a specific date yet, I can tell you my debut novel, The Reaper’s Bride, should be out this May! The release will coincide with my birthday *cough* 40 *cough*.
Right now I’m working with an amazing artist for the cover design. If you’re signed up for my newsletter you’ll get a sneak peek once it’s complete. (Sign Up HERE!)
In the meantime I’m putting the finishing touches on both the ebook and paperback versions. Dotting i’s and crossing t’s and whatnot. I’m planning giveaways and swag and all the fun stuff that helps get me through the stressful stuff. #balance.
Initial feedback on the novel has been AMAZING! I’m very proud of this review from Author, Angela Lynn. Makes me all smiles and blushy 🙂 Another made up word.
I’d love to say more, but there’s not much else to say at the moment. I’m working and I’m happy. So I’ll leave you with the book blurb 😉 Enjoy!
The Reaper’s Bride: The Reaper Chronicles Book One
It’s not an easy task ushering souls to the afterlife—just ask James the Reaper. When he stumbles upon 83-year-old Molly at a funeral, he realizes she has the uncanny ability to see into the secret world of reaping souls.
James must convince Molly of her talent and entice her to join him as a recruit. But if he thinks this task is without its challenges, he’s sorely mistaken. Molly’s best friend, Mildred, wants in too. Unlike Molly, Mildred is a sharp-tongued, politically incorrect senior who lacks the empathy and tact to make it as a successful recruit.With Molly’s natural abilities at guiding souls, James is determined to add her to his growing network—even if it means taking on Mildred.
He must ensure that Mildred fulfills her reaping contract without further angering the Gods and losing control of his reaping empire. Although Mildred seems hell-bent on making mischief for James, Molly isn’t so innocent herself. She must outwit both James and Mildred to get what she truly wants.
A suave reaper, two cantankerous elderly ladies, and a melange of dead souls make up the quirky cast of The Reaper’s Bride.
