Fortitude Keeps on Plugging Away

It’s been over a month since Fortitude released in its e-reader formats and two weeks since the paperback release. Reviews are slowly coming in. I know there are those who’s paper copy hasn’t been delivered yet, so I’m expecting more conversation once those are out in the world. When you’ve read Fortitude I’d love to hear your thoughts in any format–traditional review, comments on social media, private message, or whatever works best for you.  And in case you haven’t gotten around to buying a copy, ordering links from several companies can be found on my BOOKS page.

As far as I know, Candice Conner relieved the first delivery of the print edition.

Right now I’m hard at work on my next project. During my writing time this morning I passed the 10,000 word mark. That’s always an exciting milestone. It’s fun to be working on something new after all the edits last year. (Still awaiting the final round of edits for Corroded–coming April 12–but other than that, it’ll be fresh pages for the next few months.)

What has this new year brought you? Hope it’s mostly good.

Christmas Blessings

Christmas cheer goes a long way, especially when unpacking from a trip the day before Christmas. While off on a magical vacation this past week I received equally exciting news: Fortitude is an official nominee for the Whitney Awards!

Whitney Nominee 1

Finalists will be announced in February, so if there is any more Whitney Awards news to share, that’s the next time it will happen.

Keep in mind the paperback edition of Fortitude will be released in eleven days. I know some of you have been holding out for a print copy–thank you for your patience. Once you’ve read it (either digital or print), please leave a short review online where you purchased it or at a book review site. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads are the most viewed locations but any place is great. Reviews go a long way, and even just one sentence is wonderful. Word of mouth goes a long way, too. Please recommend it to your book-loving friends and family.

Happy Christmas to all!

P.S. In case you missed it, here’s a link to the complete listing of all the stops on Fortitude‘s blog tour over the past two weeks. Lots of insight and tidbit about the book and why/how I wrote it.
