Words can both hurt and heal.
Reviews can harm or help.
Only an author can relate to the breath-held anxiety of skimming for a pull-able quote, the number of stars, and thumb up/thumbs down opinion that comes with a new review. So without further drama, here’s the gist of what Publishers Weekly had to say about HUNTER OF SHADOWS, the 11-29-11 addition to my ‘By Moonlight’ dark paranormal series:
“Gideon (Bound by Moonlight) introduces complex new characters. Sparks fly immediately. Vivid writing, intriguing plot twists, and a satisfying ending will keep readers coming back to Gideon’s magical NOLA.” Publishers Weekly (10-10-11) See the full review at: http://www.publishersweekly.com/978-1-4391-9950-3
Whew! What a way to gear up for a new release!
And speaking of the By Moonlight series, Pocket Books has put together a grab bag of goodies for Halloween. MASKED BY MOONLIGHT is one of the e-book selections being offered for an amazing $3.99 for the month of October. Zip over to Amazon or Barnes & Noble to pick up a copy if you haven’t already sunk your teeth into this first book of the series. Bon appetite!
Cover Reveal Time!
Here’s a sneak peek at GETTING IT OUT THERE: PR and Social Media for Writers/BUDGETING TIME AND MONEY. This new ‘chapter’ in my step-by-step guide to self-promotion will be available on 10-21-11.
