Exciting news! First, I finally decided to spend the money and get myself a domain! Instead of oceanewrites.wordpress.com, it’s now oceanemcallister.com.
I believe it’s more professional than what I was using before, and it was surprisingly cheap as well. One of the reasons I got it will be explained in just a moment, as it is part of the “Exciting News!”.
Recently, I have been working hard at editing and proof-reading Crown of Roses, my NaNoWriMo 2018 story. I’m pleased with how progress is coming along and I’m happy to state that I will be self-publishing it!
Yep, you heard me. After many years of dreaming and hoping, I’m finally making it a reality. An official release date isn’t set yet, but I’m aiming for sometime this summer.
Having my own domain was part of the first steps towards publishing, as I wanted a website–one that didn’t have WordPress in its domain–for my upcoming novel.
I’m still in the Beta reader phase, as I wish to hire an editor before I hand it off to ARC readers. Still, if you’re interested in becoming an ARC reader–I’ll probably need them come May or so–then please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also have a special treat in the form of the new and improved blurb!
Crown of Roses Blurb:
“Have you ever heard Red Riding Hood howl at the moon?”
When Cerise, Verre, Blanca, and Aura are captured and forced to complete a near impossible task, it seems certain that their loved one’s lives are as good as over.
“Or seen Cinderella kill a man with just a shard of glass?”
But many secrets are being kept. Secrets that could both save or destroy all of Allegora. Secrets that are best left concealed.
“Snow White has vanquished more with her poisoned breath than her beauty.”
Also, their employer, Madame Rose, might be more than just an insane woman.
“And Sleeping Beauty? She will bring slumber with but a touch of her hand.”
Well, that’s it for now. A cover reveal will be released soon, so stay tuned!
