Off to the publisher!

It has been a busy, busy week and the chaos has not come to an end, but I do have exciting news to share.  I managed to spare the time today to run through the last edits for my book, and at least it has been sent off to my publisher.  Now it's all a matter of waiting... and checking my email nonstop... occasionally.
I realize for those of you who have been finished with Cursed With Power for quite some time now this is a relief, and believe me I'm right there with you.  This second book took seven months to write and finally have ready for publication.  It has not been an easy process, but hopefully once we're working toward release it will be less stressful.  With the book out of the way, I'll have more time to focus on the giveaway that's coming up and promos I can share before the release.  I will mention now that the giveaway is most likely going to be held off until the second book releases; this way I can giveaway materials relating to CWP and Shadows and Embers. (The recent change in title is still something I am trying to become accustomed to.)

Most likely you will be seeing a lot more of Ian Somerhalder -he's the man in the promo picture at the top if you don't recognize him-as I promote this book.  We all can use some more Somerhalder in our life, and I think he does justice for Leal's character when I need a face to match the name.
There is so much we have to look forward to.  The second book is on its way to publication, the third book is on its way to being produced, and the fourth book...  oh phew, don't have to worry about that one for a while. *wipes away sweat*  Now unfortunately I still have a lot of work at hand -with all of my jobs and so forth-but I promise my next post will have some lovely surprises in it.  We can now talk more about what's to come in the second book and where we're going next.  And remember if you're particularly excited about Leal's return, don't be afraid to spread the word.  You can tweet about the release of the second book on Twitter using #LealReturns2013.  I will be using this hashtag as often as I can when talking directly about the sequel, and it would be a wonderful way to help spread the word.
If you're interested in participating in the cover reveal, let me know!
What I regret not doing with Cursed With Power is having a cover reveal, as I have seen so many other authors do.  With that said, we're not going to make the same mistake twice.  If you're interested in helping reveal the cover for Shadows and Embers please notify me somehow -email, Facebook, Twitter, or just simply leave a comment here on the blog.  Whether your blog is popular or not, every little bit helps!  Obviously I don't have the cover yet, but once I get the okay from my publisher and start speaking with the graphics designer at our company it will be set in progress.  Everyone's encouraged to join in on this!

As you can see I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head -all of which I doubt are following in the right order.  I'll try to keep this blog updated as often as I can, and please expect to see more promos.  As you can expect, there will be teasers, excerpts and more as we arrive closer to a release date.  Also if you like the CWP page on facebook you can expect daily updates on there as well.
And while you're waiting for the sequel, don't forget about Celestria's story.  Read the book today, or share it with a friend.
Can't wait for more news!  A huge thank you to everyone who has been supportive and continues to support the series.
