Hello once again Readers!!! What’s that? I’ve been bitten!!? Oh-my-God!!
I’M A ZOMBIE!!!!! A blood-thirsty, pale-as-Edward, Zombie! Somebody grab an axe…oh wait, on second thought don’t. That might hurt.
Okay so I’m not a Zombie, but I sure did a good make-up job! My husband’s friend from work had a Halloween party on Sunday that was Zombie themed so of course I had to dress up. I LOVE dressing up! I even talked my husband into letting me paint him up too! He wasn’t too fond of the corn syrup blood mixture though. I wasn’t either after the mosquitoes discovered I was covered in sugar…eeesh.
But I digress.
I have a few things that I wanted to share with you today. I contemplated breaking the news up for multiple posts, but I am too excited to wait. So first off, for those of you who don’t know what swag is, here is the definition via The Free Dictionary:
2. Promotional items, especially when given for free, considered as a group.
Now that, that is settled, what the hizzle am I talking about? I am taking about Born in Flames
freebies people. Well, not all of it is free, but I have a ton of stuff made and ordered for the promotion of this novel!
I was able to score flyers, pens, magnets, notepads, and window decals all for the cost of shipping. How is that for extreme couponing??! I’ve also ordered a bundle of bookmarks for an insanely low price that has recently been delivered and will accompany me to my very first Author signing!!!!
Wait a minute, did you just say Author signing?? Yes indeedy, I sure did. It will be held in Celebration, FL from 2pm to 8pm. Sonya and I are also set up and ready to go to sell merchandise from Fae Tis Moor. We have Wish necklaces, paintings, Born in Flames
necklaces (pictures coming soon), hand painted journals, Fairies-in-a-Jar, bracelets, and so much more! I will be doing a follow-up post with all the pics from the fair as well as the merchandise left over in case any one is interested.
Wish me luck my friends! I am hoping for a good turn out! Embracing the Flames is on its way. I can’t wait to begin the process to publication. The blurb is finished so I thought I would share it with you:
The Stone of Immortality has been protected under the watch of the Draconta for as long as time has existed. That is, until the betrayal of a Fate. Now everything is about to change.
Aurora Megalos accepted her destiny without blinking-even if it meant succumbing to her dragon side. Deemed the Progeny, she left the ordinary life she knew and has done everything in her power to learn the ways of her new realm and what it means to be part dragon. But when her mentor, Astral, suddenly disappears, she is forced to take the reins. With war on the brink, she sets out on an epic journey to not only find her mentor, but to stop her Arch Enemy, Zordon, from attaining the Stone of Immortality. But what she discovers about him along the way is far worse than she could’ve ever imagined. She will be tested and pushed to the limit. Lives will be lost, love will be questioned, and a battle will begin.
It’s the first step. Next will be the cover (sometime after or during editing?), oh snap!! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about that.
But any who, thanks for stopping in. Now to leave you with a question: What temperature is it where you are and how do you feel about that? Okay…so maybe that’s two questions, but whatevs.
Peace out Peeps,
Echelon out ♥
