Release date celebration and some reviews

Don't forget to enter my giveaway I posted yesterday! Just scroll down a bit. :)

So, what does a person do on their release date? Well, they go visit their sister and her new baby boy, who is absolutely precious and adorable. And my hubby and kids took me out to dinner. Granted I can't eat very late, since I get killer heartburn now, but we had a great night. It's weird knowing people are actually reading my book. Weird and awesome. I've already had someone ask about the sequel, which comes out next year. I'm about halfway done writing the first draft and hope to be finished with it by the end of the year. I'm loving visiting Ash's world again. It's so much fun. A few people have asked if I'm doing a blog tour. I have one planned for October after my little guy gets here. There will be giveaways and a few other fun things!

What are you guy working on? Querying? Revising? I'd love to hear about YOUR projects! :D

Excellent reviews so soon are always a good thing! I'm so happy for you!

I am preparing for the Game On blog tour, and trying to finish my first draft of the next book in the Game On series! :D

Dinner sounds like the perfect way to celebrate :) Count me in for the October blog tour!

I'm currently querying. I have out a few partials and fulls. We will see :)

Kelley Lynn said...

So pumped! I was looking to buy your book yesterday... it's not on Nook though, right? (I am NOT technically savvy, so maybe I just missed it :))

No worries though, I'll just buy a hard copy if it's not :)

As for me. Submitting, soon to be editing (for a publisher... squee!) and revising a WIP.

SO excited for you!

Congrats! Yes, the weirdest feeling in the world is knowing others are reading your book.

Angela Brown said...

So excited for your book being out. That is wonderful!!

I'm in Revision City right now. Beginning to wonder if I'll have to take up permanent residence!!!

Rachel said...

I'm so happy and excited for you, Chantele! Congratulations on all your hardwork and kicking butt! I'm currently revising, revising, revising. Some days I think I am closer to improvement and other days I think it all sucks. LOL....life of a writer, right?

Congrats on the release! I just tried to find it on my nook and couldn't...is it on the nook or just kindle? :D

For me, I'm querying right now and starting to plot a new WIP!

Congrats. I'm soooo happy for you.

I'm working final tweaks on my query and synopsis before sending them out. Squeak. Very scary.

Congratulations on your release day.

What great reviews! I'm excited to read it. And oh that late-term heartburn! I traded my heartburn six weeks ago for sleepless nights, but she's worth it.

woohoo! Such an exciting time!

Madeline Jane said...

Congratulations! I'm sure it's one of the best feelings in the entire world. I've been working so much lately, I haven't had time to write! I don't know how you adults handle it. ;)

Jenny Morris said...

Congrats!!!! I'm so happy for you and I can't wait to read it!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Congrats...again...I said that once today over at Jolene's place...but it can't be said enough!
Me? Currently editing book 2, which is due to publisher by October 1.
