The July Update

Leave a comment

Every month I send out an email only update–some may call it a newsletter. In this email update, I share news on books and special offers that I don’t reveal anywhere else. My email list is the first to know. If you want to join this list, click here.

But this month, I thought I would share with all my wordpress friends and followers. So here you go!

Free Review Copies!

The adventures continue with double the sneezes, wrinkles, and slobber…

The third book in the Zelda series, The Adventures of Zelda: Pug and Peach, is next to be released. I will be sending out free review copies of this book.

If you would like a free copy, review the first or second Zelda book on Amazon or Goodreads. Send me a link to the review, and I will send you a free Zelda book next month! Please leave a comment with any questions.

Thanks to those who purchased a copy of my new novel, The Photograph. When you finish reading, please leave an honest review at Amazon or Goodreads. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

 

The Works in Progress

Besides preparing The Adventures of Zelda: Pug and Peach for release, I am writing, writing some more, and marketing.

My current writing project is the first draft for a YA fantasy novel. Technically I finished the first draft, but I write sparse first drafts, so I’m adding more depth and detail to the novel. The complete first draft will be done in a week or so.

After the first draft of the YA fantasy is finished, I will put it to rest for at least a month. The plan is to start the “sequel” to the Photograph. But in this novel, the protagonist will be Lillie, not Rachel. It would have made sense to write this directly after The Photograph, but I don’t always make sense!

I am also working on booking author days, writing workshops, and book signings for fall. I am hoping to have a few events each month starting in September. My concentration is the greater Cincinnati area, but I am looking at a Cleveland area “tour” this fall. If you are connected with a school, bookstore, or library that would host me, please send an email.

Catch up on my Latest Blog Posts

In my latest video post, I talk about balance and margin as an author. Zelda and Peach make an appearance in this video. Well, actually they play in the background during most of the video.

I followed up on a popular post with specific details on Author Days in Marketing on No Budget – Part 2 Author Days. 

My June Book Reviews are up on the blog. I read a psychological thriller, two young adult books (one with time travel), and a faith based memoir.

Thanks for following and reading.
