Announcement: New Cover For Ecstatic Evil (And Coupon For Free Copies To Celebrate!)

June 25, 2012 2 comments

Hello my lovely readers!

One thing I believe as an indie author: it’s important to pay attention to constructive criticism.  If you hear something over and over about a book from various sources, then it’s probably a valid critique.  Now, most things I won’t go back and change on an old book; I’ll just apply them to future books.  Two exceptions to that rule are: formatting and cover.

Well, Ecstatic Evil got fairly good reviews, but almost everyone commented on how much they didn’t like the cover.  Also, since I discovered Smashwords and their clearer formatting guidelines, I redid the interior formatting. (It is so much prettier now on the kindle!  One thing you can say for Smashwords: they are a bit more helpful to authors when it comes to formatting than kdp. But I digress).

In any case, I decided that A) I want to call attention to the fixed formatting issues (none of the story itself was changed) and B) I wanted to show readers and reviewers that I listen and C) I want my books to all have a certain vibe to them for branding purposes, even if they aren’t a part of the same series.  So. I made an entire new cover!

This is the old cover:

And THIS is the new one:

😀

I think this reflects the series better.  The scale shows the choice between demon and fairy that Tova is faced with, the moon reflects how much of the story takes place at night (and involves shifters), and the silhouette style goes nicely with Waiting For Daybreak.

To celebrate I am offering up unlimited FREE copies of Ecstatic Evil from now until the end of June!!!!!  The ebook versions available are: Kindle, epub, pdf, Sony Reader, RTF, plain text, palm doc, html, and javascript.  Simply go to Ecstatic Evil’s Smashwords page, put it in your cart, and enter the 100% off coupon code at check-out:

HB93D –100% off coupon code

I really do help you will join me in celebrating how much I’ve learned in the year since Ecstatic Evil first came out and that you like the new cover as much as I do!!

Friday Fun! (Thanksgiving, Cooking)

Hello my lovely readers!  I hope those of you who celebrate had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I had a great time with my dad.  We ordered in Thai food, which he’d never had before.  (I believe it was a hit).  I showed him one of my favorite indie bookstores.  He took me grocery shopping! (Which has been wonderful for me, I can tell you).  We spoiled my kitty rotten and went to a couple of my favorite pubs.  It was a wonderful weekend, and I hope to get to see him again very soon!

This week I got to see my friend Nina for the first time in around a month.  We went for a super long walk together in the random Indian summer weather we had at the beginning of the week and made this stir-fry out of baby bok choy, onions, pepper, garlic, parsnips, carrots, and fake steak tips (they were soy).  Oh, and sesame seeds!

Those of you book bloggers who are looking for projects and/or challenges for 2012, please be sure to check out my Diet for a New America page and my Mental Illness Advocacy 2012 page.  Even if you don’t choose to participate in them, any mentions on your blogs, facebook, and twitter are most welcome!  These types of things are always more fun the more people participate!

Also, if you missed it, I have an international giveaway currently running thanks to the author.  Be sure to check that out too!

This weekend I’ll be training in the gym, going to a tree trimming party, and editing zombies.  Also hopefully cooking something up in the slow-cooker to freeze into single servings for lunches.  Busy busy!

Happy weekends all!
