It’s been quite a while since I last blogged, which is not good considering one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to blog more regularly. A lot has been happening of late. Darkness Dawns has been on the shelves for just over two months now. I’m thrilled by the reviews it’s been getting, both by book reviewers (magazines and blogs) and by online bookstore customers. It’s been given 60 5-star reviews so far on Amazon alone! I’m very excited because whenever I find a new book I’m interested in buying, the first place I visit is Amazon to see what the general consensus is among those who’ve read it.
My Blog Tour has ended. I’m steadily receiving winner notifications and mailing signed copies of Darkness Dawns to the winners. Thank you again, everyone who joined me on the tour! I also just participated in the big Paranormal Spring Break over at Parajunkee’s View, where I posted a mini-handbook for the Immortal Guardians, describing characters, listing favorite quotes and more. I’m thinking of adding a similar handbook to my website.
I’m going to be interviewed on Ann Lory’s Blog Bites on April 25th. I also will be interviewed by Bookloons.com sometime in the next couple of weeks. I’ll post the date as soon as I know it. I’ve been invited to participate in the Bookish Haven Summer Vacation in June and am looking forward to it. I’ve also been invited to participate in Brenda Novak’s Annual Diabetes Auction. What an honor! I’ll be putting a signed copy of Darkness Dawns with a signed cover flat and mini-bookmark up for bid.
I’ve received the most wonderful emails from Darkness Dawns readers. I’m way behind on responding to them because of the Blog Tour and a few family crises that yanked me away from the computer (everything’s fine now), but intend to reply to all of them. I’m behind on facebook, too, and hope to catch up soon.
And did I mention that Kensington sold Thai rights to Darkness Dawns? Woohoo! I can’t wait to see a copy!
That’s about it for now. What’s been going on with you? Are you whittling away at your TBR pile? Writing up a storm? Looking forward to summer vacation?
