Sorry I’ve been missing for the past month or so. It’s been a crazy few weeks. First, James came home from work after a month in Nunavut, and I usually miss the internet for a while when he’s home. Plus, while he was home, I moved. Jumped from my amazing basement suite with my amazing landlords, into the townhouse where James lives. So now we’re living together! How thrilling.
Now that he’s back to work, I’ve been busy working and organizing the house. On top of that, my best friend is getting married on Saturday and I’m a bridesmaid. Last minute preparations are insane.
I’ve also been rereading my favourite series, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, in preparation to read the eighth book in the series that came out earlier in June. In the past few weeks I’ve read five and a half monster sized books. Maybe I’ll do a review of the first, just to stick something in here.
And! I’m holding another contest on my Facebook page for a free copy of my book, PURITY. Pop on over and check it out 😀
But don’t fear! I have another contest starting today!
Head on over to my Facebook page:
And you’ll find this photo. That’s the contest entry. All you have to do is like and comment on the photo to be entered. Sharing gets you a second entry. The winner will receive a FREE copy of my novel PURITY from Smashwords in the format of their choice. My only stipulation is that they review when they’re finished reading.
The winner will be drawn at random in a week, so get you entries in and good luck!
I’m working on getting ready a print on demand template for my novel, PURITY, so people can have it in their hands as well as on their electronics. I don’t know exactly how long this will take or how much it will end up costing to buy these, but it will be an option in the future, nonetheless. I’m very excited about it, and I’ll keep you all updated 😀
As well, just a reminder that my Twitter contest is still going. The person who is my one hundredth follower will get a free copy of my book, PURITY.
Guys, I’m nearly at 100 followers on Twitter!
Once I’m there, I’m offering a free copy of my novel, PURITY, to whomever is follower 100!
I know, I know, shut up, Jessica. This will be the last PURITY related post for a little while, I promise
In any case, this is news that warrants a new post.
So all this means that PURITY is pretty well finished, save for maybe a few updates here or there if I find any outstanding typos or mishaps while reading through once more myself. Maybe I’ll put a teaser or two up in the future, once she’s had time to hang out online and make herself known.
I’m so proud that I’ve been able to do this, to achieve my childhood dream of publishing a book for everyone to read. And I’m so thankful for those people who have made it possible for me. I’m truly blessed to have this opportunity.
And I hope you all enjoy Purity as much as I do.
Not to keep tooting my own horn
though I love it, but here’s yet another post about PURITY. I’m sure everyone wants me to shut up at this point, but hush, I have words.
PURITY is now (finally) for sale at Smashwords, though we’re still waiting shipment to their premium catalogue, so it isn’t ready for Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, etc, just yet. Now that I know what I’m doing when it comes to Smashwords formatting (which is a lot more difficult than formatting for Amazone, let me tell you), it won’t take nearly so long to get the next book I publish out into the vast world of the interwebz.
I’ll keep you all informed as to when the premium catalogue gets accepted and shipped and actually in the webstores.
And don’t forget either,
DISCLAIMER: The formatting for Smashwords forced me to change some of the accented words that gave PURITY some of its Old World flair. I use a few foreign words and phrases, because the majority of the story takes place in Romania. These foreign accents didn’t translate well into the Smashwords format, and I was forced to change them. For example: Ţepeş became Tepes, strigoi morţi became strigoi morti, Braşov became Brasov. It takes the charm out of it for me. That all being said, if you want to keep that aforementioned Old World flair, purchase the AMAZON copy. If you don’t give a single fuck, by all means, go ahead to SMASHWORDS.
I’ll have a real post soon enough, I promise.
A hairventure, too, most likely!
The fourteenth year of the new millennium is upon us. Just when I started getting used to writing 2013 on things, too.
2013 was an interesting year for me. It had plenty of highlights – some good, and some bad.
I hope 2014 will be as eventful, if not more.
How has 2013 shaped up for everyone else? The general consensus that I have seen was that it was a mediocre year – but together we can make 2014 amazing.
Happy New Year, everybody!
Caitlyn is a bright, headstrong girl with a twisted past she unconsciously smothers into lost memories. When she is only eleven, she is kidnapped by her father’s business rival in hopes of giving up much-needed information. Refusing to talk – and knowing nothing of use – she is placed in the Silver Room, a desperate man’s sinister torture chamber, where she meets the monsters who inhabit her nightmares.
A lifetime later, on an innocent summer vacation to her paternal relatives in Romania’s notorious province Transylvania, these memories return in a flood when she meets strangers with an aversion to sunlight and bloodstained smiles.
As prisoner to a condemned prince, Caitlyn becomes privy to an underground world where myth and nightmare are all too real, and where at every turn, a new threat emerges.
With dogs waging war and men bent on bloodshed, Caitlyn must team up with the unlikeliest of people to save what is theirs, while standing on the precipice of destruction.
Are vampires your thing? Werewolves? Dark magic, mythology, and a world only dreamed of? Heroines out of their element, brooding heroes, and allies who toe the line; blood and bones and an internal struggle; business and politics, scheming and plotting – Purity has all this and more.
Postscript: Final formatting for Apple Books, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble will happen over the weekend, and she will be for sale in those places sometime next week. Keep your eyes peeled for further updates!
I’m so excited I can barely function right now 😀
