I can’t believe that today’s the day! It’s so so surreal that I’m not focusing on RENEGADE any more. This time last year, I was worrying over how Renegade would do. Now it’s REVELATIONS’ turn. Wow. Just wow.
Anyway, you want to see the cover not hear me complain about how fast time goes by. LOL.
I’ve been lucky enough to have a TON of extremely awesome bloggers help me with this cover reveal. And I owe them a HUGE debt of gratitude, especially Jaime Arnold from Two Chicks on Books. Thank you, Jaime! <3 <3 And all the other bloggers who are listed below, for being as awesome as they come. 🙂
Also, there’s a contest! It’s pretty easy. 🙂

Well, today, sadly, marks the end of my debut year! It’s been a roller coaster ride of awesome and I’m both sad and relieved to see it end. I’m so grateful for every single one of you who made this year as awesome as it could be and I can’t wait to ride the hopefully as fantabulous, but slightly less hectic sophomore year roller coaster.
Yes, for those that have been asking, there will be a second book to the Elysium Chronicles. I can’t say too much about it, but I’m busily working on edits for it and I know the cover designer is working just as hard to bring you an even more gorgeous cover. I’ve been in discussions with my editor about the cover and I’m extremely excited to see how it all turns out. And yes, there is a title and I LOVE IT, but I don’t think I’m allowed to share it yet, so I guess we’re just going to have to patiently (*snort*) wait. 😛
And now onto the best part of this post. A DARK GRAVE (Gavin’s short story prequel) is FREE today and tomorrow to celebrate the New Year! Just click here to go to the Amazon download page.
So here’s to the ending of 2012 and the beginning of an even better 2013!

Well, today is the day! It’s October 1st, which means 2 things. It’s exactly 42 days until RENEGADE launches and, more importantly at the moment, it’s the day my new website goes live! I’m so excited for you to see it. It’s been designed by the wonderful, fantabulous Tessa Elwood of ipopcolor. She’s truly fantastic and I’m so glad I’ve been able to work with her.
I LOVE my new website. I love the purple and the creepy, elegant shadows on the side. Not to mention the blood splatter. But I think my absolute favorite is the splash page. I love how the lightning is streaking out of the door like something from a mad scientist’s laboratory. I don’t think I could have asked for a more perfect site.
Because I have a new website, I also have a new blog. I’ll still be cross-posting blog posts for the next few weeks, but soon it’ll go away and new blog posts will only be here, so you’ll want to sign up for the RSS feed. It’s up there in the left corner above the Renegade countdown widget. 🙂
Also, you may have noticed on my news page, I have some appearances listed. This is by far not all of them. There are still a ton still in the works, especially for my launch. I’ll update the list when I have confirmations. Also, I’m going to have a newsletter! If you want to sign-up for that, you can do so by going to my contact page. And, I’ll be starting sign-ups for my street team soon! I’m still sorting details, but I’m really excited about it. More details soon!
I’m sure there’s going to be a few bugs to work out with the site(there always is, especially when it comes to me. I’m hopelessly lost when it comes to computer stuff–which is insane considering I’m a science fiction author. LOL.), so if you see something that isn’t working right or whatever, let me know!
Anyway, to celebrate this awesome occasion, I’ll be giving away 5 ARCs of RENEGADE. And all you have to do is fill out the rafflecopter widget below. The contest will run for 2 weeks until October 15th. Then I’ll choose 5 winners at random. This contest is US/Canada only do to postage issues, but I’ll have more international contests soon.
P.S.: Don’t forget you can enter the goodreads giveaway, too.
