Can I share with you a little secret? Writing and publishing a book truly test you as an author. At times you feel like you are on the edge of a great chasm and that one deep inhalation will send you plummeting to an uncertain fate. Other times you are absolutely one hundred percent smitten with every word you write and feels as if the heavens open up and smile down on you-stars align and all that jazz. Writing Blood and Moonlight did this for me on many occasions. As any of my early crit partners and friends can tell you, the book was a long time coming. A lot of tweaking. Analyzing. Re-tweaking. Edits. Edits. More edits. You get the picture…madness ensued from word one (and I enjoyed every minute of it, don’t let me convince you otherwise).
Now I’m pulling up a piece of rock, dangling my feet over the edge, staring out across the cavern and thinking, man this has been one hell of a ride! The moon is beautiful, the stars are a twinkling, and we are fast approaching a new moon. That’s right ladies and gents, the 17th the moon will prepare for it’s re-birth, if you will, and we will begin the kickoff of Moonlight Madness in celebration of the release of Blood and Moonlight. OMG! Whoot! Links and blurb information is to the left…check it out. So to celebrate this momentous occasion, we will kick it all off with a little giveaway.
