I am really stoked to have this book come out, though. It sounds cheesy, but this was the first book that I really wrote for you. When I wrote the first book, it was for me--there was no book contract, no assurance anyone but me would read it. The second book was a challenge--I mean that literally. It was like a dare, where I was seeing if I could write another book my editor and agent liked.
This book, the third book, is for you. I had nothing to prove to anyone but you, my readers. This was my chance to give you something back.
And so I very much hope you like it.
Okay! Enough touchy-feely! Today is the first day of my new blog tour--and every day, there's a new chapter of the free e-novella, AS THEY SLIP AWAY. The first chapter can be found at....
Book Launch Into Space!The book launch into space is still going strong--I believe we're very close to having the whole thing actually happen, which is super exciting! Any pre-order counts. I hate harping on and on about sales, but I hope you don't mind if I just put the pre-order links here. And I promise to only do this sort of thing for the week.
And signed books are still available from Malaprops.
And here's a sneak preview from SHADES OF EARTH just for you guys. This is another mystery short section. Who's dead? What did she know? How did she die? *insert evil author laugh here*
“I don’t know,” he says. He sounds defeated. “I don’t know why she’s dead now, either. Maybe she figured out something that I didn’t. But she didn’t tell me, and she can’t tell any of us now.”
