NaNoWriMo Novel and Temp Cover Reveal!

It’s October 3 and that means the NaNoWriMo site has been rebooted, and it’s waiting for you to announce your NaNo novel! So here I am announcing mine.

During November this year, I’m going to write a novella with the temporary title Greed, and here’s my temporary book cover, which I made myself and ended up really liking. I hope you like it too!

I know, I know, my name needs to be bigger, but that will all come with refinement. There will also be a logo on the bottom right or left to indicate that this book is part of the Happy Endings Resort series. I’m aiming for 20-30k words, and the book already has a publication date of February 2017, so I really have to finish it during NaNoWriMo. The stakes are high!

Here’s a little excerpt from the book:

She drank from the ornamental fountain and her skin felt immediately better, rejuvenated. The fountain’s water wasn’t meant to drink, of course, but at this point it didn’t make a difference. Toxins, bacteria – it didn’t matter anymore.

The statue of Mary in the center of the fountain looked down at her.

Holy Mother, what must you think of me? Am I abhorrent? You could stop me if I am, couldn’t you? Isn’t it my children who are the abhorrent ones? Something allows me to do this, to be here again. I’ve forgotten the afterlife, so I don’t know if it’s your Son or His enemy who allows it. I am here either way.

She bent down and drank the fountain dry.

If you’re doing NaNoWriMo this year, add me as your writing buddy so we can support and encourage each other!

There will be a great variety of authors, including fantasy, dystopian, romance, and multi-genre authors (you’ve heard of Rocky Rochford, right?!). I’ll be giving away a signed paperback copy of my book along with a bookmark, a tea book and pin, and an Amazon gift card. Here’s the link for you to attend. I hope to see you there!

Anatomy of a Darkened Heart: Official Cover Reveal!

The time is drawing close. My debut novel, Anatomy of a Darkened Heart, has an official launch date of October 1, so let’s celebrate the impending pub date with a cover reveal! Here’s the ebook version:

And here’s the print version:

 

Anatomy 001 POD

Anatomy of a darkened heart 3D

 

Every single thing on the cover has meaning, and as you read the book,  you’ll recognize the significance of each one. The key, the mirror, the Amaranthus flower, the wallpaper, the dress, even the stairs! They all have a major place in the story.

I sincerely hope you like the cover as much as I do. I think it fits the mood of the novel exactly. I worked with Ebook Launch on it, and I would highly recommend them. I’ll do a separate post on my experience with them and how the cover evolved from the first draft of the cover to the final version – you’d never believe how it started out!

Anatomy of a Darkened Heart (AoDH) is the first book in the Dark Victoriana Collection; there are 4 more books to come: three novelettes (releasing throughout 2016) and one more novel (releasing in 2017). In addition to that, I have a five-year publishing plan that is quickly expanding, so there’s lots more to come!

Even though the official launch date for Anatomy is in October, the Kindle version of this book is already available! Click here to take a look. Or add it to your Goodreads to-read list!

Thank you for reading this post! For joining me in my excitement while I begin my career as an author, I am forever grateful. Hope to see you around here lots more!
