Starting tomorrow, Fate's Exchange is available on Amazon for FREE! Get your copy this week, as the promotion ends on Friday, August 25, 2014.
Well, I accidentally published a day early, which means I have to wait until it is able to be edited to update with the cover it was supposed to be published with. But . . . it's out!! Fate's Exchange is now available for purchase via Amazon.com and its affiliates, and it feels like a huge weight has been lifted.
After the term with KDP Select (90 days, for which I do not know if I selected before publishing because I was supposed to be saving as draft) has expired, I will also add the novel for purchase on Smashwords and its very first print edition. For now? It's time to get serious about editing Fate's Return, the second novel in the Twisted Fate Series.
The first book in the series, Fate's Exchange, will be published on August 22, 2014! It will take a few days before Amazon matches prices, but the amount? FREE! Don't miss getting your copy.
Want to know what happens in the days leading up to publication? Check out Mythic Words during the week leading up to publication to see the list of items needing to be checked off each and every day, as well as what I have done thus far - the list is I.N.S.A.N.E! But, hopefully by posting this, I can help someone else while they are gearing up for a debut. Unfortunately, I am a do-it-before-understanding-it kind of girl, so I won't be promoting the first installment to the extend it deserves; however, once I have completed the process of actually publishing it on Amazon, Smashwords, and CreateSpace (I want a paperback copy!), I will know the lay of the land, so to speak. Then, when Fate's Return is published (looking at October 2014 now), I will have a better idea of all the "what-not-to-do's".
I can't wait to share what I learn with everyone! If you have any questions, or even advice, shoot me a message or comment below.
It is almost that time - release day! Editing the last few chapters of FE, and then it will be formatted. Lots of new scenes have decided that they are joining the party. Don't miss out. I will post the definite date of release within the next couple of weeks :)
So the new cover is complete (Novel Page)... One down, five to go.
Fate's Exchange is still set to be released this summer, hopefully before August. However, if you're eager to read it, check out Wattpad, Widbook, or Authonomy. The full version is posted to each of those sites; however, I am almost finished with edits (on chapter 22). There's bit a few scenes added, most of which increase Mr. Tinsley's 'Creep Factor', but also lessons the graphic imagery in the scene where Alyssa catches him and Tina in his classroom. It's really exciting now that the finish line is fast approaching, though also terrifying in that I have NO CLUE what will happen. I guess the part of what makes it great, right? The unknown. That's why, even though I am officially on hiatus for this series, I couldn't help but edit and play with covers.
My exam for insurance is July 2nd, but the following weeks are going to be crammed with editing the first two books for Twisted Fate - finishing Fate's Exchange (chapter 22-32 and a final read-through) and starting from scratch with Fate's Return, including the cover.
Remember, Unbound has one more week for the poll to change the name of the series!
So, it's official. I have taken a break from the series. I have set a date to publish, which will net be met if I don't start editing. However, I will continue to meet a minimum pager per day quota so that the writing doesn't get rusty :)
On another note, and very closely tied to Twisted Fate, is an announcement for the name of the series spin-off... Inheritance. It'll be much like the original series, though closer to the Darkness that threatens Alyssa and her cohorts in Twisted Fate. I can't wait to share more.
Fate's Revenge is complete! Just this week I wrote 'The End' on the fourth installment to the Twisted Fate series and started the beginning of Fate's Disguise. With only two more full-length novels remaining, I'm getting closer and closer to the finish line. There is just two more novella's needing to be written as well. Now... well, I think I'm going to keep at while the writing is good, and edit afterwards, which means that the release dates will be less spread apart once I publish.
For everyone waiting for more - thank you for your patience.
Fate's Demand is finished, and even though I shouldn't have allowed myself to be distracted, 1/4 of Fate's Revenge is now penned as well.
What's Coming for the series:
- Cover Collage;
- Short Stories;
- Twisted Fate Logo Poll - I've made multiple designs and need YOUR help choosing which to use for the covers and marketing.
Stay tuned for more in April
Just an update to the covers - it would have done me well to remember that I have a very talented big sister who is a very gifted shutterbug!!! Not to mention, she can draw/paint just about anything . . . I'm so excited :) Going to head out to the lake and visit during our days off with my big sis and nephew, and maybe take advantage of the beautiful scenery! Yay!
