I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but it’s been a busy month for me. I finished the latest draft of Book 2 (the sequel to Through the Veil) and sent it off to beta readers, and I’ve been working hard on guest posts and articles for my book release on February 22nd. I’ve had a great time working on these as they’ve given me a chance to talk more about things I’m passionate about: Ireland, traveling, WB Yeats, Faeries…and so many different topics. I think it’s going to be a fun blog tour, so please keep an eye out for me as you’re surfing the interwebs. I’ve also been working hard to get a new project moving forward, and of course there’s the day job and the whole raising children business…
And then was this little detail of a cover reveal…
I know. It’s beautiful. I burst into tears (of joy!) when I saw it. The artist captured so many things about the book I can’t even begin to put into words (which is ironic because, you know, I’m a writer), but the mood, the spirit, everything, seriously everything about my story, is in this cover for me. I’m so grateful she is the face of my debut novel. Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined a better cover.
Thank you to all the book bloggers who helped me share this cover to the world. I’m so in awe of this community. They do all this work for authors for FREE. They ask for nothing in return. Their unconditional love for books inspires me so much, and I’m so thankful they could be a part of this cover reveal. I thought I love books, but it’s nothing compared to their passion, and I’m in awe of all these wonderful people working so hard to promote writers and their stories. It’s amazing.
I’m also grateful to all of my friends and family who made this day so great. You shared, you chatted me up, you sent out links, you tagged people, you commented, you pre-ordered and posted about it. To quote David Bowie, “I never thought I’d need so many people…” I need you to make this book successful. I called, and you answered. Thank you.
So, yes, Through the Veil is now available for pre-order in both e-book and paperback. Please continue sharing and spreading the word. I believe in this book–for what is says about the strength of women and the redeeming power of love. I believe we need more super heroines in the world, however flawed they might be, and I believe we need to see them growing, changing, and falling in love. If you like those things, I hope you’ll consider adding Through the Veil to your bookshelf or your kindle.
