DAVE FARLAND AND WORDFIRE PRESS
Well I have some terrifically fun news to tell!
I just received my signed contract from WordFire Press. It’s official! WordFire Press is a hybrid-indy press. Which means that The Feather and the Moon Well will be available on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble online, and all the usual outlets for online e-published books. I’ve been told that my book should be available in August, but I will be updating the release as we move along.
WordFire’s next step is to create a cover, mine was not acceptable apparently, LOL – and then they will do a final proof and typeset the book.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
What’s even more terrific, is that my editor, Dave Farland has decided to create a program called Dave Farland Discoveries. I am to be the first author in that program! Dave Farland is himself, a NYT best-selling and award-winning author. He has taught and mentored writers like Stephanie Meyer (Twilight), James Dashner (Maze Runner) and Brandon Sanderson (Wheel of Time). He has been teaching writing for many years and I am beyond honored to be picked by him to be the first in his program.
This means he will be pushing my book into far more avenues than I could have done on my own. He will be facilitating with or mentoring me on things like, blog tours, sending my book out to book contests, including me in book bundles, and garnering magazine and newspaper reviews.
He’s also already harping on me to complete my next book. Just like an editor!
It’s exciting, and believe me, I have pinch marks all over my arm! They hurt! I guess I am not dreaming for once. It’s a great feeling to have. I am thanking the Lord for all of my blessings right now.
I think it’s going to be a very fun year!
