TWO DAYS. .. and a giveaway

Fey Touched releases in TWO DAYS.  I’m excited, I’m scared, I’m ecstatic, and I’m terrified all at once.  I’ve lived this book for 9 months and now it’s time to release it into the wild.  No matter what happens, I love and believe in this book with all my heart.

Seeing the first proof was an amazing feeling.  Here it was: my book in actual book form with its beautiful cover.  My words in there.  It was tangible.  It was more than words on a computer monitor.  This thing was mine.  Unbelievable!

Soon, I’ll be starting (or rather, restarting) the sequel, Grave Touched.  I also have ideas for a third and fourth book, and who knows after that?  Maybe more.

I also have an idea that I’ve been tossing around.  It has a loooong past.  It’s actually part of Fey Touched’s first draft (at least officially), The Sacrifice, which I wrote in 2003 for NaNoWriMo.  I separated it into two books, and a small part of it into another, which became Fey Touched.  With some tweaking, it’s turning out to be an interesting idea.  It’s called Surrender.  It’s about a demon (who feeds on pain)  who must possess a woman’s body to survive in our world and the woman having to either surrender to her or find a way to drive her out.  Among other things.  I’m leaning toward horror this time around.

Yeah, so that’s what’s going on.

I’m on vacation from work this week.  So far, it’s been nice.  Naturally, I’ve been working on release stuff, but not being at the office is nice.  Less stress and all that jazz.

I want to give away a Kindle edition of Fey Touched today.  Comment to this post to enter.  I’m going to ask a question, and you’ll guess the answer.  The first person to guess correctly — or near to it, if no one guesses the correct answer — will win a Kindle edition.

Here’s the question:

I started the first draft of Fey Touched late last year, in the fall.  What day did I start it?

And, for a bonus chance, answer this: What type of paranormal creature was in The Sacrifice that I switched to Fey for Fey Touched?  (Hint: the answer is somewhere on this blog, or possibly online somewhere.  Or just take a wild guess!).

So, potentially 2 Kindle editions up for grabs.  Ready, set, GO!

  1. Have you signed up for KDP Select? As I understand it, it’s the only way to give free copies of your book away without having to pay for them yourself. I’ve signed up, but I want to spread the word before I open my five-day window.
    If you have any advice – I’m a COMPLETE newbie when it comes to self-publishing and the Kindle in general – please let me know… I could use the help!

    1. Hi, sorry for the delay in my responding to you…been insanely busy since my book released. I haven’t signed up for KDP Select yet. I’m waiting to see how things go first. I’m very new at this myself.
