Indie Girl Con Deets

Hello once again, readers!!!

So I’m back and I’m feeling…well…slightly exhausted. A good kind of exhausted though (if that’s even possible). Indie Girl was a success, and so was the release of Everlasting and From the Embers. But now that I find myself with no immediate deadlines, I don’t quite know what to do. Or write.

I’ve started a novella for the Night Watchmen Series titled The Gramm Curse. It’s going to be told in Jaxen’s POV and it will lead up to the moment he first sees Faye. I’m really excited to be inside his head and to show my readers exactly why he’s so wishy-washy and guarded when it comes to love. I’ve also started the second novel in the Night Watchmen Series which as of right now is titled Evernight, but it’s subject to change.

And with having started both projects at the same time, I think I’ve crippled myself. I usually only write one book at a time. I like to keep all of my creative focus on one project so nothing intermingles in my head, so I’m torn. Which do I work on first? Book two needs to be out soon so the readers can pick back up on Faye’s journey, but I’ve had a lot of requests for a novella in Jaxen’s POV to help understand him better.

Gah.

I’ll figure out…hopefully today because I really need to get back to writing.

But I digress.

Here are some photos from Indie Girl Con and my trip to South Carolina:

That about sums up the trip. It was long and fun. We learned a lot and met A LOT of cool people. I was even able to meet a lot of the bloggers I talk to.

Fun, right?

Okay, I need to get back to writing.

Embracing the Flames 99¢ Sale

1016105_388014354636172_2109477905_nHello once again, readers! Check out this awesome fan art done by Tarnya. She is so talented. She is also the one responsible for making Born in Flames and Embracing the Flames necklaces and key chains. I am sending her an eHug right now…

 

Okay, so my publisher, 48fourteen, did a vote yesterday on Facebook. It was for the readers to choose which novel out of their collection they wanted to see put to 99¢ for 24 hours. Embracing the Flames won! It has been at 99¢ since yesterday and only has a little bit of time left at that awesome price. (I know, I’m a little late in telling you)What kind of self-marketing author would I be if I didn’t at least mention that to you lovely people?!

Sale

Any who, since last night, the sales ranking has dropped and put me at #42 in Fairy Tales and #57 in Mythology. Of course this is something I did and am still doing a happy dance over. Yes, people, I am still dancing as I type… Just kidding. You know, I’m never sure if it’s good etiquette or not to share these types of things, but I just get so excited and want to share it with everyone lol.

I digress.

In other news, I discovered this website called Authorgraph. It’s a site where readers can request their favorite author’s autograph for their ebooks. It comes in a pdf file in their email I think. It’s pretty neat. I set an account up for myself so if you’re interested, you can find me here: http://www.authorgraph.com/authors/CandaceKnoebel. I think there’s a widget for it so I will fiddle around with that to add onto my page. You know, since I have nothing better to do besides succumbing to my ADD and avoiding what I should be doing which is working on my WIP.

Did I really just say that?

And lastly, I’ve placed an order with my publisher for the Born in Flames paperbacks. With the Indie Bookest being less than three weeks away, I figured now would be the best time to order them. If you live in Florida and are close to Disney, you should totally get a ticket and come see me. Plus, I have a few pending orders waiting and a few people who won a copy that I must send them off to.

I think that’s it.

Next weekend I will be training for my scuba certification. The days can’t move quick enough. Not that it matters or has influence on your life in any way lol.

That being said, here’s the question of the day: What genre of reading do you prefer? I am going to be totally predictable and say my favorite is young adult. No brainer there, right?
