Happy Monday, reader-friends!
I confess, it's a little surreal for me getting Behind the Stars into the world.
I finished BTS Spring 2012 doing a "30-day Writing Challenge" with my buddy Janet Sumner Johnson, of the Hackey Sack Club.
I was a traditional author at the time, so I took it with me to the state SCBWI convention. I showed it to some editors who liked it very much, then it went to my literary agent along with The Truth About Faking and Rouge.
Fast forward five months and I hit "publish" on my first indie book (The Truth About Faking) and everything changed.
Except Behind the Stars was still with my agent.
Eventually he gave up on it, and the book waited patiently in my virtual drawer through The Truth books, through the Dragonfly series... and my beta readers kept asking and asking when I was going to publish it.
Well, the time has come! And I think it's the right time.
Still, you can't just throw a book out into the world. It needs publicity and a proper launch. A cover reveal and all that.
The Cover Reveal is Sunday (Nov. 9), and the Official Release Party is Dec. 31, but in the meantime, I'm going to give you an early shot at it by serializing it.
Since the book is finished, here are all the pre-order links. If you'd like to start it November 9, here you go...
