Summertime is here! It is freaking HOT here in Savannah (pic is at Tybee Island)! It's fun though. 4th of July is coming up and although I'm right in the heat of my deadline for Book 2 of The Dark Ink Chronicles, EVERDARK, I plan on going to a friend's 4th party, eating some dogs, and watching some fireworks. But only for a while! LOL! The book is due July 15th so no playing until AFTER!
Once the book is turned in I will begin HEAVY promotion for AFTERLIGHT. The November 2ond release will be here before I know it! I'm having some wicked-cool bookmarks made and will start contests near the end of July, so keep checking back here for updates! I'm EXCITED!
I'll be having a Book Trailer made so once it's finished I'll announce it here so you can check it out.
Since some of EVERDARK will take place in Savannah's sister city, Charleston, SC, I'm headed there in a few weeks to take some pics "through Riley's eyes" (ie: like the Photoshow of Savannah I have here) so will get that put together and posted. Charleston is just about as gorgeous as Savannah!
We've also been working on the cover art for EVERDARK, so I'm totally psyched to see how that turns out. Like AFTERLIGHT, it will feature the heroine, Riley, being her cool self. Lol! Once I get it I'll post and announce!
I'll also be arranging a blog tour, as well as a book signing tour, when the release date grows closer, and I'll have it listed on my news section, so keep an eye out for it. If I'm close to your city make sure and plan to drop in to whatever bookstore I'm at and say hello! :)
And if you're interested in a booksigning in your city, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know! It may be I'm already heading there, and if not, I'd love to add it in!
Cool! So take care and stay out of the heat!

The final edits of Afterlight have passed inspection and the novel is done! No free time here, though--I'm now on deadline for book two, EVERDARK, and it picks up where Afterlight leaves off. You'll be able to read a teaser in the back of Afterlight, due out November 2ond. Once I turn in Everdark I'll be a post-a-freak here, so watch out for contests, updates, and more pics! Everdark takes a journey to Charleston, SC, so I'll post another photoshow of Riley's take on the ancient city. Until then, happy reading!
