No, that’s not an April Fool’s joke (because that would be cruel). Actually, I planned to announce this yesterday to avoid any April Fool’s fake outs, but being sick through that timeline out the window.
Anyway, the news that you’ve all been waiting to hear:
The release date for DEFY is…
My awesome cover designer Ashley is working on the cover, so hopefully I’ll have that to reveal shortly. And it’s time to start putting together all the launch stuff. Seriously, didn’t we just do this?
Oh, and I got to finish the final edit and send it off to the proofreader. Details, details.
Anyway, what are you looking forward to in a book launch?
Yes, as you can see from the title, I have a cover for Deny! Whooohoo! My cover designer worked her magic once again, and I think this cover is even better than the one for Dare.
A few reminders before I get to the big reveal.
I’ll be at the Covenant Christian Craft sale this Saturday in Walker, MI selling signed copies of Dare. Since Deny releases 1 month from today (Eeep!) I’ve decided to also offer pre-orders for signed copies of Deny, which will be available for pick up the Saturday after Deny‘s release. More information will be available at the craft sale if you wish to place a pre-order.
I also still have a few spots left in my launch team for Deny. If you wish to sign up, please follow this link and fill out the Google form.
Okay, okay. You’re impatient to see the cover. I’m getting to that. 😉
Like with Dare, I emailed Deny to my cover designer Ashley and pointed her to a few scenes that I thought would work best for the cover. We both picked out the same scene that we thought would work best, and she drew up a concept for it and put it all together.
Into this: the cover for Deny (The Blades of Acktar #2)
Isn’t it spectacular? I can’t wait until I get my first proof book so I can hug it. 🙂
What do you guys think?
