Today, I logged on to Facebook and was told to check a list on Goodreads. I found this under a list called “Indie Books Better than 50 Shades of Grey”:

It’s no longer this far up, but I had a little squee moment! I also recieved 2 new 5-star reviews from my beta readers today!

I got a proof of the print format from my friend, Kenneth, who fixed it after I messed it up. Actually, “messed it up” isn’t strong enough. BUTCHERED it. LOL! I have to say, he’s a GENIUS! It looks awesome! I can’t wait for you guys to see it!

Also, I want to request that you guys keep the kids, teachers, and parents at Perry Hall High School in your thoughts/prayers as they heal physically and emotionally from the shooting attack yesterday. I can’t even imagine what they’re going through. Not only the kids who were innocent bystanders. It breaks my heart to think about what the shooter’s parents are going through right now.

Anyways, I’m going to get back to writing book two. Thought I’d give you guys an update.

I use Goodreads all the time. It’s pretty strange to finally be able to put something on it …

News from today? Well, I don’t have much. Amazon’s file is ready to go. The file for CreateSpace is almost done. Smashwords is also done. Now … We wait. 🙂

Release Day for the ebook of The Rapture of Avery Maye will be September 22nd! Ruthi and Mary Ann from R&M Fab Book Reviews have offered to help me with a Facebook Online Release Party!

I also received the cover today! I’m so excited!

Orphaned at thirteen, Avery Maye spent most of her life keeping her head down and blending into the shadows, trying to survive in a world bent on self-destruction through warfare and a never-ending quest for power. Unable to trust any but herself, her only friend was an apparition named Alec.

Ten years later, she fell asleep in the home she’d always known, only to wake in a new world, galaxies away. She soon discovered that her imaginary friend, Alec, was not an apparition at all, but very much real, as were the creatures from her best dreams and the monsters from her worst nightmares.

Overnight, she gains everything she ever wanted and more: a new home, new friends, and powers beyond her imagination. On a new path to self-discovery, while learning lessons in love and loss, Avery is finally given the opportunity to do more than simply survive. She can finally start living.

But in every paradise lurks a snake. Her newfound peace is rattled by the arrival of a pair of mysterious visitors from the world she has been fighting to forget. Will they bring the fate of Earth down on her new refuge?
