Haven's Amazon Kindle Promo Comes to a Close
I'm pleased to say that Haven's 5 day free period with Amazon's KDP Select promo went extremely well.
In one day, Haven rose to #1 in Amazon's Free Top Science Fiction list, and by day two, it was #1 in Fantasy.
A great many new faces have entered Haven Valley to follow Kat on her journey, and, to me, that in itself is priceless. As most of you know, I am busy writing Haven's sequel. I honestly cannot wait to invite all of you to the next installment (wink, wink). As I'm still in the thick of it, I can't say exactly when it will be released. Until then, keep spreading the word about Haven! With our combined efforts, let's see how far Katelyn can go!
As I've mentioned in the previous blog, I have also blocked out part of my day to write some short stories. My intention is to submit them to some magazines, once they're polished and ready to go. I'll post updates about them and where they are published, when the time comes. The one I'm working on now is a 3rd person fantasy, eerie and charming in equal parts. Knowing me (and I hope I do by now), I'll probably end up with some concept art to post for that too.
Dear Headphones, I love you.
I would like to take this moment to bear-hug a man named Nathaniel Baldwin. Unfortunately, the only hugging going on will occur in my mind, as the man has been dead for 51 years. "Why are you hugging dead people?" you ask? Well, Nathaniel Baldwin invented the first version of the headphone in 1910, and I am very appreciative of that.
Yes, I am a professional writer, able to summon up the kind of steadfast motivation that allows me to write books. I am also a human being who breathes oxygen, bleeds when scratched by cats, and groans when I'm too busy to play the latest video game. Diablo 3 was released two days ago (yes I have my copy, yes it was a pre-order). Because I'm a responsible adult (boo), I won't allow myself to play until my brain is so fried from writing that I can't remember what my initials stand for.
Why the headphone bit? Because the fiancé finished his work before me and is currently playing. The torture! So, I love you, headphones. Thank you for keeping me focused. I'd also like to thank The Used and Silversun Pickups for recording the awesome music I'm listening to.
