Today marks the start of a big week and so far, one of the biggest weeks in my author career. I’m not going to lie, if I pee my pants its going to be from excitement and nerves.
Darkness Rising is finally being released to the public after months of hard work and heart-attack moments. This is my first ever boxed set collaboration and it’s been an incredible journey, I had no idea how much I would learn.
Marketing can be a really hard task for authors. Typically, we’re creatives, not business people and figuring out how to entice people to buy the stuff we’ve so lovingly created isn’t our strong suit. But working on a big project like this with authors who do this for a living has given me a lot more insight into the self-publishing industry and the techniques involved in making a book successful.
All in all, I’m very grateful to be a part of this project and for all that I’ve learned making Darkness Rising happen.
While this week is going to leave little room for reading, there are so many books on my TBR pile just waiting to be read and here’s one of them:

I’ve really taken to the suspense/thriller urban fantasies lately, especially with the discovery of author Kat Ross (her books rock!) and this one promises the same vibes. Against all reading advice, I started looking for covers that look like this one because they are a huge indicator that they are what I’m into.
I don’t know what it is about these covers that make me somehow know that I’m going to love reading them but so far, it hasn’t steered me wrong. Although I try not to do the whole “judge a book by its cover” thing, sometimes that practice has its merits.
This one is pretty high up my TBR pile and I’m secretly eyeing it from over the top of the book I’m reading right now.
Thanks for reading!
