...well, soon-ish anyway...

As is life, there is a mixed basket of news on this.

First, the pre-orders for the book have been great!  I'm so thrilled... and thank you to everyone who has already ordered a copy!! Seriously, pre-orders are a HUGE help to authors. It makes us stand out to vendors and if you still plan on getting a copy, please feel free to order it from whoever your favorite vendor is.

Less fortunately, we had to change printers to meet the demands for THE KELPIE, so the official release date had to be pushed back until December 17. Which, considering I've long had the release party set for December 7th and other events happening before the 17th, it could have been a disaster.

But because Kate Kaynak and SHP are awesome, I'm getting a very limited early run that I'm able to use for the release party, all local events pre-December 17, and to supply the local vendors who I promised stuff to for the original release.  Also, for those of you who were absolutely depending on the book pre-December 17, let me know and I'll do my best to set aside one of these limited print run books for you.

Most importantly, though, THANK YOU again, to everyone who has been supporting me through getting my very first novel out there and around!

Cover Reveal: COPPER RAVENS by Jennifer Allis Provost

Time for another fabulous cover reveal!  And I get to promote two awesome friends of mine with it!

The Cover: by Lisa Amowitz!

Here are the deets:

Book Blurb:
Sara should be happy.

She has what every girl wants: a man who loves her, a beautiful home, and wealth beyond imagining. She rescued her brother from the Peacekeepers, destroyed the Iron Queen, and doesn’t have to go to her boring job any more.

And yet… Sara still doesn’t know if her father is alive or dead. Her mother hides in the garden, brooding about her missing husband. Her sister, the Inheritor of Metal, is scared of her own shadow, and her brother spends his days fighting and gambling. To add to Sara’s misery, the new queen (gold, of course) is more than a bit crazy, she misses her life in the Mundane world, and, worst of all, Micah wants to have children. A lot of them.

As Sara wavers between happiness and homesickness, a conspiracy emerges against the Raven clan, implicating them in a plot to dethrone the Gold Queen. How can Sara prove her family’s innocence, and become the consort Micah needs her to be, without losing herself in the process?   

Jennifer's bio: 

Jennifer Allis Provost is a native New Englander who lives in a sprawling colonial along with her beautiful and precocious twins, a dog, two birds, three cats, and a wonderful husband who never forgets to buy ice cream. As a child, she read anything and everything she could get her hands on, including a set of encyclopedias, but fantasy was always her favorite. She spends her days drinking vast amounts of coffee, arguing with her computer, and avoiding any and all domestic behavior.

While working at Spencer Hill Press, I've gotten to meet and make friends with many authors...even those who I don't edit or work with.  This year, at Book Expo America, I got to room with the fabulous Sherry D. Ficklin. (Okay, I got to room with the fabulous Sherry, Marie Romero, and Michelle Picket... but today we're talking about Sherry...)  In any case, we hit it off and ended up hanging out even more at New York Comic Con.

And today is the book birthday of EXTRACTED: THE LOST IMPERIALS BOOK 1

The book she co-edited with Tyler Jolley.

So, Happy Book Birthday to Sherry & Tyler!

Welcome to the war. The Tesla Institute is a premier academy that trains young time travelers called Rifters. Created by Nicola Tesla, the Institute seeks special individuals who can help preserve the time stream against those who try to alter it. The Hollows is a rogue band of Rifters who tear through time with little care for the consequences. Armed with their own group of lost teens--their only desire to find Tesla and put an end to his corruption of the time stream. Torn between them are Lex and Ember, two Rifters with no memories of their life before joining the time war. When Lex's girlfriend dies during a mission, the only way he can save her is to retrieve the Dox, a piece of tech which allows Rifters to re-enter their own timeline without collapsing the time stream. But the Dox is hidden deep within the Tesla Institute, which means Lex must go into the enemy camp. It's there he meets Ember, and the past that was stolen from them both comes flooding back. Now armed with the truth of who they are, Lex and Ember must work together to save the future before the battle for time destroys them both again.
