First, I want to give two very BIG thank yous to both my cover artist, Brittany Bowman, and to the fantastic lady who coordinated the cover reveal tour for me, Giselle Cormier from Xpresso Book Tours!!! Second, I don't think there's a word to describe how impatient I've been to reveal the cover for the first book of the Captivated series. When Brittany sent it over to me two weeks ago, I wanted to share it immediately! IMMEDIATELY! I literally squealed when I saw it! lol Like all good covers, it embodies everything about the story - it's dark, lovely and mysterious. I'm so thrilled by her work.
So without further ado, see below for the cover as well as links to all of the book blogs who are sharing my cover today. I'd also like to offer them a very sincere thanks!!!
Despite the single-digit temperatures down here in Atlanta, I have a little something that may warm you - news on the cover reveal and publishing date for Captivate Me!!! As my beautiful and very talented sister-in-law works on it for me, I've arranged for Giselle at Xpresso Book Tours to organize my cover reveal on Monday January 27th. That's a mere three weeks away! :)
What's a cover reveal, you ask? And why would I need someone like Giselle to coordinate it for me? A cover reveal involves an unlimited number of book bloggers who sign-up to showcase my book cover and summary on their website. This way I can reach a broader audience in anticipation for the release. Giselle, being a book-blogger herself, has these well-coveted connections to the blog-o-sphere and takes care of every minute detail. That's priceless for an indie author with limited time/ resources. Besides, it's neat. :) So if you have a blog, and would like to sign-up to be a part of the cover reveal, follow the link below:
Also, I now have a firm publishing date for Captivate me - April 1st, 2014. Which, coincidentally, is April fools. lol No connection, I promise. :)
