Cover Reveal Party – “The Lupine’s Call”

The Lupine's Call - Cover RevealOn July 17th, I’m devoting the entire afternoon and evening to showing off the cover for the upcoming follow-up to “The Hunter’s Moon (Shadows Over Seattle: Prequel One)”.

I’m inviting fellow Urban Fantasy authors to come help celebrate the cover reveal, and I’m going to leave the names of my guests a surprise until the last minute.

The Book Blurb

Richard Parsons is a shapeshifter with a drinking problem – not that his girlfriend knows about his abilities. But she’s determined to sober him up, and the arguments aren’t helping.
Storming out of the apartment during the latest argument might only be the first bad move of the night.

Will Richard’s drinking get him into more trouble than he can handle?

About The “Shadows Over Seattle: Prequels”

“The Lupine’s Call” is the second of the “Shadows Over Seattle: Prequel” series, giving readers a chance to meet the characters who will be appearing in the main series. Every story is a snapshot of an event in that character’s past, and can be read as a standalone short story, or as part of the series.

What’s Happening At The Party?

Authors – I’m opening the floor to Urban Fantasy authors who want to come join the festivities, and meet my readers

Readers – You’re going to be introduced to some of my fellow Urban Fantasy authors, and discover some great stories of the process.

BONUS-Sized #777 Day – July 7th is Double Sample Day

Bonus-Sized 777 Day

So those of you who follow me on Facebook, or Twitter might have noticed something I do on the 7th of each month..

Several author groups do a variation of the “7-7-7 Challenge”…

The 777 Challenge Rules

  • On the 7th day of the month
  • Go to page 7 of your current writing project
  • Post 7 lines from that project on social media
  • Then (optional) challenge 7 authors to do the same

But You Said This Is A Double Sample Day…

That’s right, which means instead of posting the same sample in the two groups I do this challenge with, I’m posting different samples to each group…

As a reader that means you get to see a total of 14 lines from “The Lupine’s Call” instead of the usual 7.

I’ll post the first 7 lines to Facebook and Twitter with the hashtags #OWS777 and #777.

Then the following 7 lines will be posted to Facebook, Twitter and AuthorBitz.com with the hashtags #AuthorBitz and #777.

“Ramblings of an Author” Is Getting A Make-Over

That’s right folks, as you know I’ve recently updated the look and formatting of my website, and it’s time to do the same here.

My Reasoning

  • “Ramblings of an Author” has looked pretty much the same since I first set it up over five years ago.
  • Five years is a long time to be posting without changing up the format a little
  • I just did a huge overhaul of my website, and I LOVE how it looks now
  • The links don’t seem to stand out in the text, so they too need an updated look
  • So… It’s time to do the same here (within the limitations of available free templates)

So What’s Going To Happen?

  • I’m on the hunt for a new theme that will work well with the kind of graphics I want to use
  • I’m updating all my “Book Spotlight” purchasing links to affiliate links (which will earn a little income from this blog)
  • I’ll also be changing things up a little with the banner headings and so forth

All-in-all I’m hoping to get this blog looking a little more like my website.

So, keep your eyes open for those changes, and be sure to comment below…
