Journey of the awesome cover.

The artist is almost done with the book cover for Vizcaya!  He posted an update on his blog and everyone should go check it out so you can see the progress he's made.  I really love the coloring of the cover.

Also, there's a facebook page now set up for me, so if you want my writing updates to come straight to your facebook friends page, then check it out and like it!

Since Vizcaya's almost out there for everyone to read, I'm going to try and work on compiling a list of blogs that will do book reviews for self-published novels.  If anyone has any favorites they check out, or know of any good ones, please comment!  We want to get Vizcaya into the reviewers hands.  If you run a blog and are interested in reviewing Vizcaya, please send me a message using the form on the Contact page.

In reading news, I'm happy to report that I've completed one book already for 2012!  This is much more promising than last year.  I'm currently reading Animal Farm by George Orwell.  Dystopian novels for the win!  As always, you can keep up with my reading adventures on my Reading page.

Three Kings Day came and went.  I know that was our release date for Vizcaya, but in an effort to make sure that what ends up in your hands or on your Kindle is worthy of your time, it's had to be pushed back just a little.  Trust me when I say that no one wants this book to be out more than I do.  I feel like I've been waiting forever!  But the perfectionist in me just can't take putting out a sub-par product.  So I guess I can say that a book that I feel confident about and can be proud of, will be my belated Three Kings Day present for all of you!
