Two New Things

Two new things are coming my way and thus your way, one sooner than the other, and one much bigger than the other.

The bigger one is the later one, but I’m going to talk about it first because I’m most excited about it, okay?

Okay. I knew you’d see things my way.

This July (it’s looking like July 1st even!), I’m releasing my first novel (well, first novel that you get to read), Flight of Blue.  It’s the first book in a trilogy called the Keeper of the Keys Chronicles, and I’m so totally excited about it.  If you sign up for my very occasional updates (email newsletter), you’ll receive notice about giveaways and release dates and specials (Psst! There will be some $0.99 days for the ebook as a promotion right after it comes out…)

If you like to review books and would like to receive an advance readers copy (paperback, and yours to keep so long as you post a review on Amazon and Goodreads (if you’re on there you can shelve the book now!), contact me.

Okay, enough on that! On to the next thing…
