A Birthday Celebration!

18 Aug

So, my birthday is on August 28th.  I’ll be celebrating a few things.

One, I’ll be turning 39, so I’ll be celebrating the start of the last of my 30’s.   I’ll also be celebrating the re-release of my debut novel, GUARDIAN…which is a big deal to me.

GUARDIAN was my first book.  It was the thing, the cathartic thing, that kept me from drowning in grief after my dad died.  It was also the pivotal thing that pulled me into the writing world and changed my life forever.

To celebrate these things, I’ll be throwing a virtual party on my birthday.

Guardian 10 Days

GUARDIAN will be re-released.  On release day, my birthday, it will be $.99 for digital copies for that one day only.

Also, for that one day only, the following books of mine (which are some of my favorites) will be on sale for $.99:

Dante’s Girl (Book 1 of The Paradise Diaries)

The Minaldi Legacy 

Confessions of an Alli Cat  (Book 1 of the Cougar Chronicles) 

Soul Kissed (Book 1 of The Moonstone Saga) 

If you watch my books at all, then you’ll know this is a big deal, because my books are seldom on sale.

Anyway, I hope you’re all having a great day. As for me, I’m just gonna be over here… counting down the days til my birthday.  Have a great week!

Cover for Guardian!

30 Jul

Happy Wednesday, guys!

Today’s the day to reveal the cover for Guardian!  Woohooo!

In case you missed it the other day, Guardian was my debut book several years ago. I recently acquired the rights back, and since it didn’t get much exposure back when it originally released, we’re re-releasing it.   It’s a YA Paranormal Romance— and it’s undergoing new editing, and a brand-new cover.

Without further ado, here it is:

Guardian revised cover

The ever-talented, always-awesome Matt from The Cover Lure produced this awesomeness.

About Guardian:

                                                            Sometimes, things that go bump in the night are real. 

My name is Whitney Lane.  I’m sixteen years old and at first, I thought I was crazy.

I kept seeing shadows move along walls, and hearing whispers around corners, but whenever I looked, there was never anything there.

Until one day, there was.

Our world isn’t what we think.  There are things around us, good things, bad things, scary things.

Things that we tell ourselves aren’t real, but they are.

They’re very real, and they’re terrifying.

I’ve been swept up now, in a battle of good and evil, confused about love and what is supposed to be love, but isn’t.  I don’t know what to think anymore.  I can’t trust my emotions and I don’t know what is true.

There’s only one thing I know for sure.

Nothing is what it seems.

***

Guardian is near to my heart because it was my first book.  My catharsis, my therapeutic healing after my father died.  It re-releases on August 28th, which is my birthday, and it will be $.99 for release day only.  I hope you love it!

 

Announcement of a New (sort-of) Release: GUARDIAN

22 Jul

Happy Tuesday, guys!

So, I’ve got an announcement to make!

A few years back, I published my debut novel with a small publisher, Whiskey Creek Press.  At the time, I was elated.  So, so, so excited to be published, because ohmygosh it was my dream.  🙂

However, I was a brand new author, and my book didn’t receive much marketing support… so actually, most people don’t even know that I wrote it at all.  Lol.

That’s where the good news comes in.

I recently acquired those rights back from the publisher, and I’ll be re-releasing my debut book on August 28! !

I’m SO excited about this.

GUARDIAN is a YA Paranormal Romance.   I wrote it right after my dad died, and it was a catalyst for me… it’s the thing that made me strive to become a full-time author.

The story is close to my heart and the book is sentimental to me because it was the gateway for me into the book-world.  It’s where I began my journey.  It’s also the thing that helped heal me after my dad died.

I’m re-editing it right now, and it will receive a brand new cover, and a brand new book birthday.  I’m gong to treat it as a new release, because it practically will be.  I’m changing the story around, and not many people read the original story anyway.  haha.

I really really hope you’re going to love it.

I’m going to release it on my birthday, August 28th, as a celebration.  A celebration of my birthday, of Guardian’s re-release, of my metamorphosis into the author that I am today….as a celebration of all of it.

Stay tuned— we’re releasing the cover and the book description on Wednesday, July 30th.  I can’t wait!!!
