Over 1500 people signed up for a chance to win a copy of Hawthorne. The three lucky winners live in Canada, Italy and Greece! The book again is going places I’ve either never been too or wished I could visit now. Watch for future giveaways on Goodreads and Amazon.
This weekend only you can get Hawthorne for free on your kindle or kindle app on your device! Follow the link and start reading!
I wrote a chapter where I introduced a certain Pixie character that ended up getting cut to keep Hawthorne to three points of view, but I just love this chapter and thought you might too! Sign up for my email list and I’ll send you a PDF of the chapter.
I’m finally getting back to working on Rowan! I so enjoy writing and I’ve missed it. I turn on some music and get into the zone and just let the story unfold. Its work but also magic! My favorite writing music with Hawthorne and I’m guessing for Rowan is Loreena MacKennitt’s Nights from the Alhambra. As my wife can attest, I love this album and listen to it a lot. If you have never heard it, I highly recommend it! Alex just typed his name for the first time, right here on this post! He’s already on his way to being a great novelist!
Wishing you all a very happy New Year! I hope it is filled with joy and magic!
The giveaway is over and the three books are going to California, the Netherlands and India! Congratulations to the winners. The books will be on their way soon.
Hawthorne is now in five bookstores! You can find it at Boulder Bookstore and all the Tattered Cover bookstores in Colorado. It is also in Michigan, at Saturn Booksellers in Gaylord. Please help me support these stores this holiday season. Thanks!
One lucky winner won a copy of Hawthorne yesterday through my Amazon giveaway. If it wasn’t you, not to worry, I’ll be starting another Goodreads giveaway on Dec 14th!
The Hawthorne Goodreads giveaway is over and over 1100 people entered! I will shipping out the books to the winners soon. Congratulations to the three woman, all from the United States, who won. Keep checking back for future giveaways!
I’ve been wading in deep into the waters of book marketing and I’ve found a great book that I wish I’d found months ago. It’s Self Printed: A Sane Person’s Guide To Self Publishing, by Catherine Ryan Howard. Catherine’s website
I love Catherine’s no non-sense approach to the whole adventure of publishing your own book. She doesn’t pull any punches about the reality of doing this work. Because of her, I now am using Twitter and feeling very green. If you have the dream of getting your own book out there, I highly recommend her book.
I never imagined how much time I was going to spend sitting in front of my computer, checking on giveaways, Facebook posts, Goodreads news, and now Twitter. Its fun but it’s taking a ton of time and I want to get back to working on Rowan Druid Spirit Chronicles Book Two.
At least the cold weather is cooperating, with giving me more time inside to keep up with things!
For a chance to win a paperback copy of Hawthorne.
Contest ends November 19th!
