I’m not going to torture you and make you read this entire blog for that single piece of information, so I might as well start with it.
Don’t be sad! There’s no reason to groan!
I’m not playing wiffle ball on the street of my neighborhood anymore. I’m in the “Bigs” now; with that comes a new set of rules, and we need to play nice!
I loved being an Indie Author!
I am a control freak (go figure), and it allowed me to feed the beast by having a say in every little detail – from the formatting, to the book cover, to the Emma-isms that are unique to this series.
But ever since I typed the first word of Reason to Breathe, I’ve envisioned this series on the shelves of bookstores all over the world for everyone to read! And now it’s happening!
Penguin UK/Razorbill is in the process of prettying up the first two books in the series. They will be released as eBooks initially on November 8th, available in the UK, Australia, India and South Africa. The print versions will be available in 2013.
Amazon Publishing will be re-releasing Reason to Breathe in January 2013, Barely Breathing in March 2013 with Out of Breath to follow in June 2013.
Raise that chin; it’ll be okay. I promise!
In the meantime, there is a lot to be done before June! There are deadlines, publicists, and hundreds of pages of edits to conquer! I just spent the entire night clicking “accept” edit, “reject” edit, and restructuring sentences in Reason to Breathe for Penguin’s upcoming release. I have yet to go to bed, and it’s now almost 1pm. I’m about to fall over, and couldn’t tell you my own name, but it’s worth it. We’re playing with the Big Kids now…
Oh! And did I happen to mention that I have until the end of November to finish writing Out of Breath?! Yeah, I’m a little freaked by that. But I discovered last night that my body shuts down at a certain point, and my mind takes over. Who needs sleep?!
This is happening! I’ve stepped out onto the field, shielding my eyes from the bright lights, and I’m about to let the world know who I am. Are you going to be in the stands cheering me on?! яндекс
There is so much more I want to tell you, but I’m not sure you’ve read beyond the first sentence of this post – haha!
Again, in case you missed it ~ Out of Breath will be released by Amazon Publishing in JUNE 2013!!
