You may have seen the stirrings around the web about Finding Fireflies, a new novel of mine being released from Crosshair Press on February 8! The day is getting closer and closer, and I may be more excited about this one than I was about Nameless.
Tuesday night, while I was busy with trade show adventures in Chicago, my publisher had a cover release party on Facebook. So since the cover is out, I thought I’d share!
Isn’t it beautiful? It’s really simple and quirky, but it’s striking, which is exactly what I wanted. My publisher uses the services of a pretty fabulous graphic designer, and she’s just amazing and talented and super nice. She’s the same designer who did the cover for Nameless and she’s also doing the cover for the next book from Crosshair Press, due out around Memorial Day.
If you haven’t preordered your copy yet, you still can. But there are only three days left! You can pick from an electronic copy ($10) or an electronic copy and and softcover ($25) or several softcovers ($50+). All the money raised in preorders will go to marketing and production costs, which will make it easier for me to get out on the road and start telling people about this amazing story. My publisher still wants to raise at least $90 more, and we’re almost there!
For those of you who have already preordered, thank you so much! People have been saying such kind things, and you have no idea how encouraging that is. I’m such a perfectionist, and I’m so hard on myself all the time. My tendency is always to assume that nobody likes me or my work, and what I’m finding consistently is that I’m wrong about that. This project, as well as Nameless, have taught me a valuable lesson about how self-critical I am.
I’m eager to get on the road and start talking (Yes, to people! Can you believe it?) about this book and sharing it with other people. The more people know about the problem of sex trafficking in the U.S., the better chance we have of stopping it.
