I won't lie. I'm always nervous when a book comes out, but I've never been this nervous. Firstly because this book is a bit different for me, and secondly because YA fantasy does not always do well in the self-published market. Many in the publishing world say paranormal is dead and publishers are burnt out on magical realism. For a reader and writer like me who thrives on non-contemp worlds, this is saddening. But I know I'm not alone. I know a lot of you still crave paranormal and urban fantasy as I do, however, the fact of the matter is that contemporary is what's selling most in the independent publishing world. So, yeah. A bit anxious here. This is me...
When how I really want to feel is this...
(Yippee! Much better.)
But at some point I just have to let it go and hope for the best. No, scratch that. I have to MAKE the best of it. And what better way than with a teaser and a giveaway?? Woot!
Just a bit of information before we get to the fun stuff. I will post all of the buying links here on my site when SEE ME goes live on St. Patrick's day. The ebook will be $1.99 on St. Paddy's day, so snatch it up at that price on Monday! The paperback will be $11.99 (more than I wanted, but they set a minimum price based on pages & the distribution availability that I've chosen.) If you have any questions, let me know!
Teaser time, baby!
Something moved by the hen house and I looked up, heart accelerating.
McKale was leaning there with his arms crossed, waiting for me. My body reacted to the sight, heating and buzzing. I got my act together, gathering my things and moving toward him.
“Hey,” I said, feeling shy and self-conscious about the potato-sack apron that covered my shorts and t-shirt. “Is everything okay?”
He stared at me warmly for a minute without replying, and then he ran a hand through his red locks.
“Aye, all is well. I needed to see ye once more before I took to bed.”
“Oh,” I breathed. His voice sounded different. More confident and serious. The heat that began when I saw him now completely took over my body. Unlike when we’d first met, he didn’t try to avert his eyes from me. He was openly drinking me in with an inquisitive newness, unperturbed by my less-than-attractive clothing ensemble in the morning light.
