To Slay a Curse is getting an audiobook! And I’m doing it myself!
I’ve always liked reading aloud. But gotta admit the idea of narrating and producing a whole audiobook totally intimidates me 😅 It’s been a huge learning curve, but I’m finally getting the hang of it. And pretty proud of the results😊
Today is To Slay a Curse’s first birthday 🥳 Giselle asked me to make a wish for her when I blew out the candle. Any guesses what it was?
And it happens to be a beautifully cozy Sunday afternoon. So why not grab yourself a cupcake and curl up with this free e-book? Yes, you read that right! My book baby is FREE ON KINDLE for the next five days! Click the image below to get your free ebook. Happy reading everyone!
My dear Friends and Followers, and my dear Realmies and Readers, and Sisters, and Falcons, and Authorpreneurs. Today is my twenty-eighth birthday!
I hope you are enjoying yourselves as much as I am! I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. (Yes, it works out to a compliment 😉)
Finally, I wish to make an ANNOUNCEMENT! I’m running a FLASH SALE! For the next 24 hours, all items in my shop will be 20% off.
If you’ve been eyeing something for a while, want a jump start on Christmas shopping, or just need a treat on this blustery Thursday, NOW IS THE TIME!
I regret to inform you, this is the END. I am going. I am leaving NOW. GOOD-BYE!
First off, To Slay a Curse is now free to read with your Kindle Unlimited subscription! And it looks like they’re running a two month special right now. So if you’ve been debating whether or not to try it out, now would be a good time. But if you don’t have/want KU, don’t worry! The Kindle e-book is for sale and the paperback is still up on most major retailers.
Second, I’ll be doing my first book signing next month! If you live close, or just really enjoy road trips 😝, stop by the Cape Girardeau Library on October 16 between 2-4 and pick up a signed copy of To Slay a Curse, character art, or some of my custom bookmarks! If you’ve already got a copy, you are more than welcome to bring it for signing.
Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to 2021! Rather than ending the year with a bang, I’m launching it with one 😉 Just two weeks till To Slay a Curse is out in the world! While I don’t have a full-blown party for you, I do have a couple fun activities coming up to celebrate.
Photo Challenge + Giveaway
For the week leading up to release, I’ll be hosting an Instagram photo challenge with a giveaway for both US and International participants! Just make a post following the day’s prompt with #ToSlayACurseChallenge and you’re entered to win. Pop over to Insta for all the rules!
Release Day Q&A
Mark your calendars for January 16 at 7! I will be going live on Facebook and Instagram to answer all your To Slay a Curse questions. Want to know my inspiration for the story? Have a question for one of my characters? Just curious about my writing process or publishing journey? Drop your queries in the comments and show up to find out!
No graphic for this one as it’s not official yet😅 But, I’m planning a small blog tour for the week following release! It will include an array of posts featuring interviews, reader’s thoughts, and more. Check back here Jan 17 for all the info!
And, of course, my pre-order campaign is still running! If you want your swag, be sure to upload your receipt to the form on my Books page 😉
Phew! That’s quite enough to be getting on with, don’t you think? I’ll be busy as a bee in Jan, so perhaps I’ll get the luxury of being the lump on a log come Feb 😛 How are you kicking off the new year?
To Slay a Curse releases January 16! Preorders are now live and signed copies are available in my shiny new shop! (US ONLY) Check my Books page for buy links.
I also have my very own Laura Hollingsworth art, and so can you 😉 All preorders will receive a set of these gorgeous character cards. (ebooks: virtual set, paperback: 4×6 postcards) Just submit your receipt to this Form. Open through launch day!
At long last, today is Cover Reveal Day! It’s so surreal to be doing one of these for my own book baby, and I couldn’t have asked for a better cover to do it with 😊 A big thanks to Magpie Designs for the spectacular work 😍
A parasitic monster. A timid young woman. A deadly inner world.
Giselle is cursed. A monster lives within her, preying upon her mind. She sees no hope for her future when thoughts disappear as they form, and every small pleasure is met with a fit of pain. Then her closest friend offers her a single, harrowing chance at freedom. Terrified that failure is inevitable, but desperate for the life stolen from her, she sets out to slay her curse armed with a magical talisman. Now, the girl who can’t do anything right must defeat the beast within before her dreamsnare fills, or risk dying trapped in her own mind.
Big news, friends! I have opened a street team! What is a street team, you ask? It’s a team of bookish individuals who enjoy an author’s work and are committed to sharing it with the world. In exchange, they get writing updates, exclusive content, and early access to things such as cover reveals and ARCs.
I’m specifically looking for women who enjoy YA Fantasy that’s a little less on the epic world-building (there is some, I promise!) and a little more on the complex character’s personal journey. If this sounds like you, please apply!
