It’s our birthday!
A year ago today, I released Liam’s Promise as an ebook to a not-yet-adoring public! What a year it’s been: three more books written, exhibits at big shows like the American Library Association and the Children’s Book Fair in Bologna, Italy, a website, blog, Twitter feed (@doomsdaykidsz), rewrites, more edits, cover redesigns, PR firms and of course, writing. Always writing!
In fact, in the kind of synchronicity that has ruled this endeavor, yesterday I surrendered my (semi)final draft for its editing and early publicity. Amy’s Gift continues the Doomsday Kids’ story with the usual combination of action, drama and teenage realism. Even though Amy can be difficult to love (after all, she was a mean girl once) I know by the end of the book you’ll love her as much as I do…warts and all!
This year has been filled with challenges, but it’s also been one of the best years of my life. I love writing these stories, and I appreciate all of you who have read, shared and enthusiastically supported the series. Thank you!
As soon as I figure out how to do the Rafflecopter, I’ll put up the info on how you can enter for a chance to win Amy’s Gift, along with the cool Doomsday Kids survival bottle– that really does have just about everything you need to be a Doomsday Kid yourself. Follow my Twitter: that’s how you’ll know that I’ve figured it out!
In the mean time, blow out a candle with me–with a few extra to grow on for the coming years!
