Announcing My Cover Reveal and Release Date!

I have the cover to my novella A Silent Soliloquy in hand (or, more accurately, in computer), and that means I can now announce my cover reveal!  Woohoo!  There are a fair few butterflies in my stomach, because everything is coming together.

Isn't it a strange but amazing feeling when that happens?  It's certainly a little terrifying.

Anyway, now that things have gotten this far, I need to start planning.  Though I'd love to throw this thing out into the world right this second, I should perhaps be a wee bit more patient than that.

I've decided that my cover reveal will be this coming Monday.  That's Monday, June 15th.  It's still pretty short notice, but I honestly don't think I can hold out any longer than that.

Interesting side note: the day of my cover reveal will also be the 10 year anniversary of the day my husband first asked me out.

If you'd like to help me out with the cover reveal, just sign up with the linky below.  I'll get you all the info you need over the weekend!

I've also decided on a release date of Monday, July 6th.  It's only a three week wait in between, but July 6th is also my husband's birthday.  I figure that will help make our day that much more festive.  We also have a tradition of taking over other people's special days in our family anyway.  My husband asked me out on my parents' anniversary, and we got married on his parents' anniversary.  Therefore, this release date makes complete sense.

And since a blog tour is one of the best ways to get the word out about the book, I decided to schedule my tour for Monday, July 6th-Friday, July 17th.  Funny, that end date would have been my great grandmother's 100th birthday.  As many of you know, she died a couple of weeks ago.  The way the dates are all coming together feels quite appropriate, really.

So, since it's all coming up close anyway, I figure I should put out a linky for people to sign up for the blog tour too.  If you have any ideas about the specific date you'd like me to stop by and the format you'd like that visit to follow (interview, details about the world/characters, new piece of flash fiction related to the story, etc.) feel free to let me know in the comments below.  If not, never fear.  I'll get a hold of everyone within the next week or two to start hashing out the details.

So, here's the blog tour linky for all those interested.

I feel like I'm rambling today, so I'll let you all go about your business now.


  1. Signed up for your tour. Congratulations!
    July 6 would be great. See my guest post guidelines on my site - anything connected to movies and with snark is a plus!
