Super busy behind the scenes

Hello All!  It’s been super busy here behind the scenes at Mela Remington.com.  We’re prepping for Stamford which required way to many submissions to CreateSpace, who knew the two itty bitty tails on the serif font of my T would get a book rejected so many times?

I’ve also ordered swag for Stamford, some really awesome rack cards, and a sweet banner.  The rack cards are likely to cause a stir, my graphics guy James at Humble Nations/www.goonwrite.com has done an amazing job with the covers for Dominion.  You’ll be getting a sneak peek of books 1-3 on the rack card and I’m hoping to have some snippets up as well soon.  Working full time and living the migraine life leave less time for writing than I’d like.

If you’re visiting over at Facebook or Twitter you’ll see I’ve been trying to be more active over there as well, please drop by, say hi, leave a post on the wall, I’d love to interact.

Thanks to everyone who has bought the book, and to those who have left reviews, I’m touched, we’re pretty well rated on Amazon 4.5 stars.  At Goodreads I’m at 3.77 stars and about 50 people have me marked as to-read, it’s an awesome feeling to know that there are people out there who have enjoyed the story!  If you haven’t left a review on one or both sites and want to share feedback, positive or not please leave a review if you have the time, I’d appreciate your effort!

So besides Stamford the other big news is that starting tomorrow I’ll be on tour, but instead of late nights in dressing rooms with groupies I’ll be touring some awesome blogs sharing the love and answering some of the truly interesting questions, thanks bloggers.

 

I’ll be posting the list of blogs and dates shortly, please stop by the blogs and stay a while, they are a diverse group and I’ve added a lot of books to my TBR from visiting their sites.

Huge News!

I am thrilled beyond the telling of it that I will be joining 34 other wonderful indie authors at the Stamford Author Event at the Stanford Hilton in Stanford, CT.  There will be a book signing, give-aways, a chance to win VIP passes to a mixer with the authors and the bloggers attending the event and lots of other fun stuff.

The most awesome part (besides the fact that I am still jumping up and down about being included) is registration is FREE, that’s right kiddos, zero pennies from your pocket and you get to meet and greet cool people like me, OK, so most are WAY cooler than me but I’m going to be there, please visit their site to learn about all the amazing authors who will be there as well as information on contests, hotels, registration, etc.  A huge thanks to Laura Howard and Jena Gregoire for organizing this amazing event.  Who knows, maybe I’ll have a completed draft of Dominion: Jane, ready by the event…

New Review by Three Chicks and Their Books

Thanks to our friends over at Three Chicks and Their Books for the great review.  I’m so glad you all liked it.  I’m working on a blog tour and am hoping to have more information on that soon, working a full time job, and a life and a family seriously eats into my author efforts.  Please stop by their blog, read the review, show them (and me) some love!

So it’s been very quiet, but it’s about to get loud…

really, really loud, because as of tonight we are live, on Amazon and Smashwords and should be live on Barnes and Noble tomorrow!!  We are ahead of the May 3 planned publish date because it turns out I’ll be celebrating my 5th wedding anniversary at sea, and publishing from a boat is a challenge.

You’ll also notice we have a new cover.  While I loved the cover James at Humblenations.com did for me, additional research and discussion showed that romance novels with people on the cover just sell better, it’s sad but true,  I tried to find some one who looked like Cora and Dan and had little to no luck, but in the 11th hour I found the perfect couple.

I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it!  Keep tuned for more information about a potential blog tour as well as my next project!
