The Blood Race Launch [& I need your help]

Words can't express how truly grateful I am to be part of such an amazing and supportive blogging community. I started this blog back when I was a young teenager to write about...well, writing. And because of this little space, I've been privileged to meet so many amazing writers, readers, and supporters. There have been so many days when I've posted something that was weighing on my heart, and to my surprise, been blown away by feedback from you guys-- often on days when I need a little encouragement, too.

You guys have always been there for me, and I can't thank you enough for that.

All that said, if you've been following my blog, Twitter, or Facebook for any amount of time, you know that I'm a writer and that my head is basically a little hurricane of stories hanging out on top of my shoulders, and that writing is essentially how I understand the world.

And it's safe to say, if you know all this, you also know that I've been working on a specific novel for a while now-- you might even know that I've finished it. Except it's not just a novel... it's a trilogy. (a trilogy which could possibly evolve into four books, but let's not get confusing here.)

And this trilogy, this first novel of the trilogy, is my love. I LOVE this book, dang it. And this story, this little universe I've created? Well, it's kind of become my home these past couple years. My haven. 

So the novel is finished, and it's done, and it's awesome (even if I do say so myself... like rarely do I compliment myself, but... DARN IT I AM JUST EXCITED ABOUT THIS) and...(the important part) I can't wait to share it with you guys; in fact:

it's time to share it with you guys.

If this post was a child it would be like one of those very multifaceted children who talks a lot, because this is kind of an announcement about the book being finished, a reveal of the cover, and an invitation to a launch party. 

So, here's the clincher: if you like reading, and you like sci-fi/fantasy, thriller, adventure genres, and you like deep, interesting, sassy, hardcore characters-- and if also you like explosions and things catching on fire, and cliff jumping, and extra dimensions...

idk... you might like the novel. Because all of that stuff is in there.

All this to say, I am looking for launch party-ers. Or, in other words, advance readers

This is the deal:

1. Type your email into the blank, white box below and you'll be on the guest list - you'll receive a free digital copy of The Blood Race (first book in the series) as soon as the launch period starts (Which will be soon. I will keep you guys updated via email.)

2. After you've read the book, I'd be super, super, super grateful if you didn't mind popping over to Amazon, purchasing the e-book, and leaving a customer-verified review. (Obviously, you don't HAVE to do this step, but I would really appreciate it. Amazon is pretty particular about reviews coming strictly from readers who have actually purchased the book, so that extra step is important if you don't mind supporting the endeavor. Honest, good words on my Amazon page would be SO appreciated and I will love you forever.) 

3. help me spread the word. Honestly, this novel is a massive part of my life, and I've put everything I've got into this series. If you dig The Blood Race after giving it a read through, I'd be extremely grateful if you'd share it on social media, with friends, or maybe even write a review on your blog after the book is released if you feel compelled to do so after reading.

and 4. Oh wait. There is no step four.

That's it. :)

I'm so excited to finally be sharing this with you guys. You have no idea how much. I am so pumped with this series, and I honestly can't wait to see what you guys think. If you're interested in reading the book before anyone else does, please feel free to sign up below. It would be a massive help to me, and I'd be thrilled to have you on the launch team.

If you would like to check out more info about the book, do so at my (shiny new) author website where you can also sign up for email updates about the book. (Written by me.) (...The emails, not the book. But the book is written by me also. Js.)

* Sign-ups are now closed. Thanks so much to everyone who joined the launch team! 


ps. Hey, I know a lot of you are writers too, so please feel free to give me the low-down about your book or WIP in the comments below - I'd love to hear about it. :)
