The Winner of the Elected Advanced Copy is…

Lourdes Bernabe!  Thanks to everyone who entered the rafflecopter contest and helped make my cover reveal that much more exciting!  In other news, here's the latest with Elected's publishing process: I'm still going along through the editing cycle, but we're in the final stages of developmental edits.  Then Elected goes off for line editing.  Next, it moves to the imprint's director who gets the ARC formatted.  At this point, I believe it'll go online for pre-sale at places like Amazon.  My editor and I have one final chance to comb through the galley.  Then ARCs go out to bloggers,...

Writing Advice from Helen Fielding (Author of Bridget Jones)

I had so much fun going to see Helen Fielding speak in Washington DC a few weeks ago with my friends Erin and Julie.  Helen Fielding is the author of Bridget Jones Diary, and the latest Bridget Jones book, MAD ABOUT THE BOY.  After many years, Helen decided to reveal the next installment of Bridget's life. Things were so crazy at that time with my own book, I didn't get to write a post about the event and Helen's writing advice until now. But now that the cover reveal for ELECTED is over, I had a moment. (just 3 more days for the contest to win a free advanced copy of ELECTED!)  http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/fc0c920/.

For Anya, becoming an angel has to do with death—her death. Micah, the angelic...

ELECTED’s COVER REVEAL and GIVEAWAY!

ELECTED’s COVER REVEAL and GIVEAWAY!

I've been waiting for this day since I first received the cover art samples from Entranced and Suzannah Safi a few months ago.  (Ok, I take that back...actually, if I think about it...I've been waiting for this day ever since I finished the first draft of ELECTED back in July 2012.  I love this cover because it gives off a mysterious, dark vibe and shows just a glimpse of Aloy's face.  Can you tell if it's a boy or a girl's face?    If you read the synopsis of ELECTED on my website, you'll see that the main character, Aloy, is a girl posing as a boy.  Her face has intrinsic...
