Blog Tour Day Four: Shades of Earth & As They Slip Away!

In just one week and one day, SHADES OF EARTH is being released! Wheee!!! I fluctuate between wild excitement and extreme bouts of vomit-inducing terror, so let's pretend that we're in the excitement upswing for the moment.

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.

Blog Tour!
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....

Just click on them, and you can read the first chapter of the free novella, as well as enter for one of five signed sets of books--one for each day of the tour!

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.

Book Preview!
And here's a sneak preview from SHADES OF EARTH just for you guys. This is getting hard--trying to find a scene that doesn't give anything away but is still a little juicy. So here's this scene-one of my favorites--but I'm not going to tell you who or what it's about. So it could be anyone: Amy, Elder, anyone. 
“Get. The hell. Out.” He grinds the words out through clenched teeth.

I stare up at him, shocked at his reaction. “You did this. If she dies, her blood is on your hands. You can’t keep her safe. You can’t keep anyone safe. GET OUT.” He pushes me again, and I stumble against the wall.
