So technically it’s two stories. Sue me. 😛
But today kicks off the re-launch tour I pulled together to celebrate the relaunch of my books The Rise of Aredor and The Wildcat of Braeton! Instead of synopses, I’ll just tell you that these are fantasy/adventure stories about family, brotherhoods, a little snark, a touch of romance, and lots and lots of action. 🙂
So three years ago, in March 2014, The Rise of Aredor was first sent out into the world. The Wildcat of Braeton followed the next year in May 2015. And thus began my journey into the fantastical (and slightly overwhelming) world of authoring. It hasn’t been easy, especially since I was working on my physical therapy degree during that time. So, not a lot of extra time to devote to books. 😦 But now I’m all graduated with a grown up job and…slightly more time for books. 😛
So that’s part 1. In January of this year, I got the news that my publisher was shutting its doors. *cue several days of panicking* But then once I got all my files and right returned to me, I had to decide on the next step. Which after much deliberation, was to go indie with my own imprint name. So then a long summer of studying for my test and some needed edits and minor revisions on the books, all the formatting got worked out, the covers spruced up, and *hopefully* every last typo annihilated, and the shiny 2nd editions were released back to the world on September 12!
And now, I’m having a party to celebrate!
There’s lots of fun things to see this tour, so I hope you check out the blogs of all the lovely bloggers who are helping me out!
