I've been away from all social platforms this year. I have had a lot of changes in my life to deal with, such as those mentioned in my previous post. I won't go into the sordid and rather boring details ;)

Anyway, I'm not only footloose and fancy free. I am eagerly finding ways to promote my book: The Lebrus Stone.

I have managed to find a nice Ukranian young man from Spain who has made me a very professional looking trailer. I have also arranged three cover reveals and a book blitz for the month of November.

The book is expected to be released mid or the end of November.

I know what you're thinking. Why three cover reveals?

Well at the time I didn't realise you just arranged one. I'm new to all this. Those arranging them for me have said they are fine with it. I figured it would be a way to gain the most exposure before the release date. Anybody who missed the reveal the first time would have a further two chances.

Plus I like to be different. :)

Here are the dates:

Cover and trailer reveal with Lovingthebooklaunchparty - 4th November.

Cover and trailer reveal with Ithcingforbooks - 5th November.

Book Blitz with Sage'sblogtours - 14th November.

Cover and trailer reveal with Bookplugprmotions - 15th November.

I will be adding prizes to all of these, and with the book blitz I may add character photos and a soundtrack. I co-wrote these songs with my now ex five years ago, and sang them. Three of the tracks would be instrumentals he wrote by himself.

Here is the synopsis of the book:

When eighteen-year-old orphan, Crystal Valdez, accepts an invitation to the small town of Blacksville, West Virginia, she’s hopes to have a summer to remember, a chance to get to learn more about her parents, to also get to know the family she never knew existed.

But the Lockes begin to act strange and erratic; eerie movements in the night fuel her very vivid and gruesome nightmares. To complicate her summer further, she becomes attracted to the menacing yet handsome Cray Locke: her none blood related cousin. He seems determined to keep his distance. The only bonus seems to be the housekeeper and gardener.

And when a local informs Crystal of the secrets buried at Thorncrest Manor, the kind consisting of a forbidden relationship and war between hidden worlds, and even witchcraft, she must decide whom to trust, even if it means giving up on those she has come to love.

It's strange to think this time last year I was with my partner of eight years, editing day and night, worrying and stressing about getting the book how I wanted it, and then signing the contract with my publisher.

I'm so glad I have my books to keep me looking on the bright side.
