Going global :)

Thanks to Ingram, Elissa Blue is now available to bookstores around the globe! If you don’t find it in your local bookstore, you can ask them to order it. I hadn’t realized that bookstores mostly just order from a single distributor, and it’s not Amazon. Ingram is the world’s biggest wholesale book distributor, and the company all of my local bookstores use; hopefully yours, too! So if you’re like me and still adore perusing the shelves of your local bookstore and that delightful booky smell, keep an eye out for Elissa Blue! ๐Ÿ˜€

International Giveaway! :)

As promised, this book giveaway is international! United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, India, and New Zealand are all included. ๐Ÿ˜€ If I left your country out, let me know in the comments, and I’ll make sure the next giveaway includes yours as well. If you don’t have a Goodreads account, it’s easy and free. I adore Goodreads and use it to choose 90% of what I read. I am also a Goodreads Librarian. ๐Ÿ˜Ž If you would like to enter the giveaway for 1 of 5 signed copies of Elissa Blue: Book One of The Winged, click here:ย https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/229047-elissa-blue-book-one-of-the-winged



I have lovely childhood memories of visiting the local library every week and checking out enormous piles of books that were almost impossible to carry. Books were some of my favorite adventures; still are, though now my enormous pile is digital. If you are a fan of paperbacks, I have good news! Elissa Blue is now available (or very soon will be) at Hood River County libraries, Salt Lake County libraries, and the Brigham Young University Library in Provo. Hopefully, it will be cropping up at other libraries as well. If you would like to help that process along, just request that Elissa Blue be added to your local library. Thank you in advance! ๐Ÿ˜€elissa blue copies on shelf

Amazon publishing rocks!!

amazon-paperbacks-ebDear Amazon, you are awesome in so many ways, but today, it’s because of the lovely package you sent me! Glossy paperback covers of my book! Not to snipe at Barnes and Noble, but dang, yours are prettier! Thank you Kindle Direct Publishing! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh yeah! And remember that $25 Amazon gift certificate giveaway for those of you that post links to your review of my book? Lol…nobody has posted a link. I haven’t decided if this means I get to keep the gift certificate or if I should just choose one of my reviewers to reward on March 1st. I am taking suggestions. Or one of you could just post a link to your review and be the automatic winner! ๐Ÿ™‚


barnes-and-noble-paperback-screenI am a giddy joy monster!!! After much impatient waiting, my book just became available in paperback! Yes, it’s 1 a.m. Yes, I did wake up everyone to share my glorious news! Mom, you’re lucky I’m not texting you right now; I BARELY resisted! Oh man, I’m so excited! I just ordered some copies for myself, and now I am ecstatic for Monday to be here so I can thumb through it in panicky celebration and make sure there are no misprints. Ebooks are fabulous and I am addicted to my Kindle, but sometimes dreams just don’t seem real until you hold them in your anxious little hands! ๐Ÿ˜€
