These last two months have been crazier than I've ever experienced!!
First- I have a pinterest page where I've been posting things that inspired some of the books you may have read from me: http://www.pinterest.com/jleigh0178/
Second, last Monday, I typed the last words of the first draft of Seven Days, a manuscript I finished in just under six weeks. It's with my beta readers and author friends right now. Awaiting feedback is one of the toughest things I ever do, because I'm a really impatient person. I'm excited/nervous for their feedback as I'm so damn proud of this book, I can't even find the words!
Also, I brought someone on board to help me with marketing and trying to take this writing endeavor further in the next year. It has been an amazing experience thus far. When you are trying to find your way in the sea of indie publishing, it's nice to finally have someone who is looking out for you in a way that's not the same as another author or someone in your family, etc. He's encouraged me to try a few new things in the last two months. As a result:
I have my first cover shoot scheduled for this weekend! I've relied on stock photos since I started releasing my books, but for Seven Days- I will have an original cover that will only ever be on MY book. It feels pretty amazing to be able to say that. I should have a cover reveal for Seven Days in the next two weeks. So stay tuned for that...
LASTLY!!! In Professor Spin-off news!!! The book finally has a title: Catch and Release. I've finished the first part of the book and am still debating whether I'm going to release the series singularly like The Professor, then combine the books afterward- or if I'm going to wait and release it as one big volume. If anything, I won't release the first part until after I have the second part written, so you won't have to wait long once I make a decision.
So be on the look out- big things are coming up in the next few months!
