Wow, it's time for another writing update already? They say January feels like the longest month of the year, but it flew by for me. And boy was it productive!
Last month, I finished SPARKS AND SHADOW (ahhh!), created ARC copies, arranged several book tours, updated covers and assembled my ARC team, and did a bunch of projects for my editing side hustle.
I know I've said this a million times over the past couple months, but I'm so ready for Everly to make her debut. *cue happy tears*
CURRENT (FINAL!) WORD COUNT
Current word count: 68,884
Target word count: 65,000
I can't believe how much I added to Everly's story with the help of Alex, my developmental editor. When I sent it to her in October, I had a whopping 49,000 words on the page. She gave me so many good ideas and highlighted so many areas where I could expand the story. I'm forever thankful to her!
Four weeks. We are four weeks away from release day. It's going to be here so fast! I'm so ready, but my to-do list is still a mile long.
ARC copies went out today, so if you're on my ARC team, check your email!
SPARKS AND SHADOW is participating in several blog tours over the next 8 weeks, so I'll be doing lots of interviews and shares on my Instagram page. I'll be sure to share some here as well, but be sure you're following me on Insta for the most up-to-date information.
I set up paperback pre-orders on my website store for signed copies, so you can click here to order one now. They'll come with exclusive character art, a signed paperback, and a fun little surprise in each box.
I'm also gearing up for some fun giveaways over the next few weeks before release day, so keep an eye on my social media pages. ;)
I can't wait to share Everly's story with you. In my next update, she'll be AVAILABLE everywhere books are sold! I still can't believe it.
Anyway, that's all for this update. See you on release day for the next one!
