#RainbowSnippets #novellines Forty-Seven 5/19: The Letter

Guess what? The ebook version of Cleaning House is available on Amazon for the pre-order price of $2.99 US and comparable prices internationally on Amazon. Yes, I’m happy dancing. This is far from my first novel, but it’s the first I’ve been able to be so hands-on with (authoring aside). It’s been an interesting process, and tomorrow I’m on to the print copy process. You can pre-order the ebook HERE or by clicking the cover below.

I’m also in search of ARC reviewers. Let me know in the comments if you’re interested, and we’ll talk.

#WIPpet Wednesday #WW #WIP 5/16/18: Brownie

Happy Wednesday! I’ve been very busy this past week and don’t really have a lot to show for it, at least not on the surface. Cleaning House is now up on Smashwords for preorder (you can read the novel’s first 20K HERE)– that’s something, and it will soon be up on Amazon too. But the print version of Cleaning House is very much a work in progress. I think (pray) I’ve got the cover right, and I’m crossing my fingers that my book formatting is up to snuff. This is the first time I’ve handled this end of the publishing process so I’m kinda stumbling around. Thank goodness for a more experienced author/publisher who’s been giving me tips along the way.

#RainbowSnippets #novellines Forty-Six 5/12: Gardening

I’m up to my eyeballs, perhaps over my head, with learning how to format and submit to ebook markets and the printer for distribution. Trial by fire, if you will.  Someone help me. (Said tongue-in-cheek. I am managing.) It’s a maddening process the first time around, but I’m learning. Again, when you are working with a small publisher this is part of the job description… really, it is for me. I’ll be better at it next time around, but it feels as if I’m learning everything not to do in one fell sweep  – or so it feels. *grins and cackles* Yeah, I might lose my mind.

#1lineWed #amwriting #WIP Humble

Here’s another short-‘n-sweet #1lineWed post. The theme is humble.

“I’m Hunter fey. You’re lucky I don’t command you.”

“I will be your humble servant if you ever do.” Stowne stepped back so she could tuck her wings. “The evening is pleasant, considering the season. Shall we go to the porch?”

#WIPpet Wednesday 5/9/18: Birdie

Cleaning House is back from edits! (casts a deer in the headlights look) No, the manuscript is fine, better really, and I really appreciate a good editor’s hard work. The big eyes were for the work that’s now ahead of me.  Formatting. Uploading. Setting up for the print copies. Yesterday, it was waiting. Today, it’s a big to-do list. Such things happen when you’re part of a small publisher.

Release Day Buzz: Curtain Call by C. H. Clepitt

Fellow author C.H. Clepitt has a new novella titled Curtain Call, and it looks to be ever-so good. Here’s what C.H. Clepitt has to say about her new work.

“This started as a short story, prompted by an anthology call by friend and colleague A.M. Leibowitz. I was at the maximum word limit, and felt the characters still had more to say, so, when it turned out my submission was 4 times longer than all of the other submissions, I withdrew it, expanded it and this novella was born. I am really proud of what I have achieved here, and think it might be some of my best writing to date. I really hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.”

Sounds, good, doesn’t it? Well, here’s the official blurb to further your interest.

When an assistant to the director role turns into P.A. to her favourite film star, Jen can’t believe her luck. Eleanor Francis is charming, kind and funny, but she has a secret, and when tragedy strikes, things threaten to unravel at an uncontrollable pace. Despite being out of her depth Jen has to adapt to her new role quickly, to protect Eleanor, with whom she is rapidly falling in love.

This is a sweet, understated story that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure. If you’ve enjoyed C H Clepitt’s other books then this is not to be missed.  

Now,  if that doesn’t have you scrambling to order, then here’s what others have to say about Curtain Call.
