Dispatches from Hamletville: The Harvesting is a BRAG Medallion Honoree!

Hi everyone!

I am pleased to announce that The Harvesting has been honored with an B.R.A.G. Medallion for excellence in writing!

According to the IndieBRAG website, "Our mission is to discover new and talented self-published authors and help them give their work the attention and recognition it deserves." My title is listed with many other fantastic works. It really is an honor to be selected. Their screening process is rigorous: "On average, 50% of the books submitted to us fail to pass the initial screen and another 40% are subsequently rejected by our readers. Thus, only 10% of the books we consider are awarded our B.R.A.G. Medallion and are presented on our website."

As many of your know, The Harvesting was my debut novel. It was my plunge into publishing, and I don't think I was quite prepared! In the year after The Harvesting "hit the stands," I was plagued with both joy and self-doubt. I really loved Layla and her story, but some haters had me wondering. In the end, do you know what I realized?

What else can I say, lol? Goes to show, you should never let the negative voices get you down.

Now, with that said, fans of The Harvesting Series are due for a status update!

The Harvesting Series Status Update!

  • I am planning to release a second edition of The Harvesting within the next 1-2 months. The second edition will not include The Parallel currently offered in the first edition.

  • The Harvesting is headed to the spa! The extremely talented Liliana Sanches is developing a new cover for The Harvesting. I LOVE The Harvesting's first cover, but am trying something new with this second edition. Ms. Sanches is also at work creating a cover for The Shadow Aspect, Book II of The Harvesting Series. Check out her work here: Princess of Shadows Facebook.

  • Newsletter followers should keep an eye on their inboxes. I have a short story/prologue to The Harvesting Series that will be released to my newsletter subscribers.

  • So I hear you love Cricket and Vella! The Parallel is about to become a spin-off novella.

  • The Shadow Aspect will be released late summer/early fall.

  • More details forthcoming! Stay tuned :)

And now the shameless self promotion . . . Still need the novel? The first edition is available at Amazon.com!
