Last week just rocked!
Not only did I celebrate twenty years of marriage, I also started edits on Defenders of the Covenant! I should finish those up this week, and the book will go to press shortly after that. It's hard for me to believe that the time is almost here. I. Am. So. Excited! I have been waiting for this for a very long time. I can't wait until I have a cover to show you!
But that's not all! I also got a contract from Rosehaven Publishing for my short Christmas Story, "With Love," to appear in an anthology to be released around Christmastime! That was completely unexpected, but most welcome. Not all the time you get a surprise acceptance. =) That will bring my short fiction total up to lucky number 13.
So, yeah. I'm feeling pretty happy and I want to share the joy!
First off, I'm running a little promo on my Facebook page. When I get to 200 likes (or maybe even sooner, since I'm way excited), I will send out a paper airplane Avenging Angel to anyone who wants one.
The Avenging Angels are the super cool fighter jets in Defenders of the Covenant. You know you want one of these! All you have to do is like the page if you haven't already. Also, I'm offering my sci-fi novella, "The Bearer's Oath," for free to anyone who shares my page with their Facebook friends. So, come join the fun. I try to keep my page active and enjoyable.
And because I want to celebrate the release of my first novel and get the word out about it, starting next week, I'll be holding the Defenders of the Covenant Release Celebration from Feb. 27-Mar. 16! Here's a sample of the prizes up for grabs:
That looks like an interesting assortment, eh? The prizes correspond with the characters in the book. I'll be introducing some of them to you over the next few weeks and you'll have a chance to win these and more. (I haven't quite got all the prizes yet.) Plus, a signed copy of Defenders of the Covenant will be up for grabs, too, of course. So stay tuned for all the details!
What successes (large or small) are you celebrating?
