Exciting News

My novel Curse of the Beast will be published spring 2012!!!  My paranormal romance, is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast with a unique werewolf twist! More teasers to come:-)

It was a hard choice to make whether or not to self publish, (I still had a huge list of agents and publishers), but as I did my research, I found that self-publishing was a great fit for me. I really enjoy having a large say in what the cover will look like, down to how I market the book. There are so many great self-publishing sites out there, that my book will have the distribution that it needs and is going to be an e-book as well as a paperback! One of the great perks about self-publishing, is that I can price my book so that everyone can enjoy it. Sometimes, it is just hard to find twenty bucks to put toward a book. Also, the market is shifting more to e-books, and while there is still a huge market for physical books, I realized how much of the author's commission was taken by the publisher.

So, I have hired me an amazing editor, Jessica, (owner of Mystic Manuscripts), to edit my manuscript. Jessica also is doing my cover! She is so talented and very reasonably priced.

Wow! I can't believe it is really happening. So excited!  Thanks for coming on the journey with me!
