Celebrate: Formatting & Giveaways

Cookie Thief!
This week I have a lot to celebrate!
1) I actually got back to writing my Alaska WIP.  I revised 4 rough-drafted chapters and put them in my CP group forum for crits. Yay!
2) I did the rough-draft outline of my Paris WIP! 
3) I got my first royalty statement from my publisher, Freedom Fox Press. It was niiiiice!
4) My first novel, Soul Cutter, now has a new cover and the ms is formatted for Kindle. I've been a busy bee! I was pretty nervous about formatting. It was easier than I expected but harder than Smashwords formatting and took longer. Luckily, I'm only doing an ebook of Soul Cutter. Now that I have the rights back from my previous agent and the publisher, it will be re-released late this month or the beginning of December.

New Release From Alexia Chamberlynn!

Huntress Found
Book #1 of The Timekeeper's War series
by A. A. Chamberlynn
      Evryn’s got mad skills at playing hide and seek. She can find lost children, hack the most secure databases, pretty much anything. Except for the one thing she desires most: the knowledge of who her parents are, why they abandoned her, and what her special talent means about who and what she really is.
      So, when a guy named Seeker appears quite literally out of nowhere, claiming to know about her past and offering her a job, Evryn can’t say yes fast enough. Even if it does mean following him to another realm. As in, mind-blowingly, not Earth. Apparently she’s part of an elite clan of Hunters descending from Artemis who can find just about anything in all of time and space. As the last of Artemis’ direct lineage, Evryn is her clan’s best shot at finding a lost city before rival clans do.
      Not just any city, but the flying, realm-hopping city of Skye. Aboard Skye is the Artifex, a magical device with the power to create or destroy worlds. Everyone wants the device, and with Evryn’s super-powered lineage, it means everyone wants her, too. It’s hard to decide who she can trust, even within her own clan. After she discovers a strange, alluring connection to the Artifex, she’s not even sure she can trust herself. Worse yet, the only person who may be able to help her is the Timekeeper, the sadistic ancient being who created the Artifex. An interdimensional war is brewing, and Evryn is right at the epicenter of it all. 
      Let the hunt begin.

Formatting something for Kindle sounds intriguing, but I'll bet there's plenty of tricks to learn before one can do it reliably.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Sounds like you have everything under control. Good luck with Soul Cutter. Those royalty checks are super, even the little ones.

Congratulations to A. A.
