It has been a bit of a struggle to get things going the way I want. I understand that some of the struggle is because I'm self publishing...I don't have a team behind me to ensure everything happens - it's just me. And I'm cool with that. But sometimes, it's a bummer. I don't dwell on mishaps for long, though. I'm an optimist at heart and a cheerleader for my self always. One of the bumps *honestly, it was the only real bump* was my cover. I hired someone to do the cover and it didn't turn out the way I had expected.
In the end, I made the cover myself. I had to push the release date back a few times because of this though. I'm a writer and no artist but I think I did pretty good with what I've created. And I'm not changing my release date again. I'd hoped to have the cover ready at least a month before the release so I could debut it on a few other blogs but no biggie...I'll debut it now...
Finding Me is set to release on April 2, 2014. Here is the book blurb:
Sixteen-year-old Chloe Carmichael’s perfect world is in chaos.
It’s not because she has a vision of her boyfriend murdered. And then he’s found dead exactly as she saw. It’s not because she suddenly has the ability to move objects when she’s upset. It’s kinda cool to close a door without touching it. It’s not her overbearing mother who only cares about appearances. Chloe’s grown accustomed to her family's distance.
So what has Chloe cringing in fear?
It’s a love that defies reason. It’s a love that speaks to the heart. It demands attention. But Chloe struggles with a love that exposes the soul. What will her family think? What will her friends think? And is she worthy of his love.
And it’s having to become another person for a new group of people. Chloe knows she’s not perfect but apparently she was when she was Amanda in another life. Her new friends won’t let her forget. It’s the stench of death that hoovers over her every move. It’s the threat of finality as she tries to acclimate to a life of super human proportions. It’s an enemy she can’t see and can be anyone she’s ever known. But her enemy knows her well. She’s the lone person with the knowledge to destroy him. But she doesn’t remember.
And it’s never discovering who she really is before finality meets reality.
In honor of this awesome cover, and me sticking with the release date, I'll be giving away 2 $25 Amazon Gift cards.
