What’s New?

If you’d been keeping up with my posts, then you’ve heard that I have been having a horrible time formatting the final copy of The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen.  Yesterday, I bit the bullet and sent it off to a formatting company and what a weight was lifted of my shoulders!  I should have the final copy in a week.  No more ARC’s though. (Sorry bloggers!)

When I sent the final copy off, I thought I’d start picking up some of the books I’ve been dying to read, but nope.  The characters started having conversations in my head and the writing bug has bitten again.  Now I’m off to rewrite the beginning of the second book in The Fairytale Keeper series.  Wish me luck!

Reviews and Interviews

Well, the ball is really rolling on this project! Many blogs are going to be hosting an event called Fairytale Fortnight, in which they review upcoming fairy tale retellings. The Fairytale Keeper: Avenging the Queen is to be featured on quite a few of those. In the next three weeks, I expect to see between five and ten more reviews and I’ll post links to those as soon as I get them. My author interview with Alice at Alice in Readerland was recently posted and a review by Vicky Culbertson, Sanders Middle School’s Media Specialist, was posted to my page on Amazon.

A Crazy Month

March has been a whirlwind for The Fairytale Keeper!  I received my first copy of the book a few weeks ago and since then have sent off a dozen or so copies to reviewers.  I started a Facebook fan page two weeks ago and already have 450 fans.  The first chapter was posted about a week ago and the reviews have been very positive so far.  In fact, I was the featured author on The Secret Writer on March 22, 2012.

I’ve been talking to wholesalers, distributors, and the like to make sure my readers can order my book from independent bookstores, major book sellers (Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, and Borders), and online retailers (Amazon, Createspace, Apple).  And I’m happy to say that on June 1,  anyone who wants a copy should be able to get one pretty easily!  Here’s hoping that April is just as productive a month as March!
