ARC giveaway and cover reveal #YA #book #indielit #selfpub

All my friends who have books about to be published through traditional channels have "cover reveal day" on their blogs. This is when they get to show the world the cover of their upcoming book. I've always thought this was a vain, self-glorifying, egotistical thing to do. So of course I've been dying to have a cover reveal day of my own.

Forsada, the sequel to Semper, will be available in print and on Kindle on January 13, 2013.

If you haven't read Semper yet, you can get it at Amazon or wait until December 26th when it will be available as a free download for Kindle.

Want a free eARC of Forsada? Tweet or facebook or blog the permalink to this post, and leave a comment here pointing to your post. Couldn't be easier. I'll pull up to five names out of a hat* on December 26 from everyone who enters (one entry per tweet/post).

I'll also send a signed ARC of the printed book to two lucky winners.

Oh yeah! I almost forgot the cover.

Cover design: Wendy Russ

* Or could be a shoe. Or I might make a big Bingo board of all the names, then let my cat eat grass and see which names she barfs on. Not sure yet how it'll work.

Hey Peter, just a heads-up that the new Feedburner "updates by email" plug-in worked like a charm!

Also, the cover looks awesome!

PJD said...

Brian, thanks! Thanks for stopping by, and for prompting me to figure out that blogger has an email follow.

That is an amazing cover!! Wow. I mean seriously, who could walk past that and not pick it up?

Yay, Pete and Wendy!!

PJD said...

Jennifer, thank you! I had this idea for the cover, and then Wendy came back with this super treatment that made my original artwork (I am not an artist) look like a discarded kindergarten fingerpainting.

All done! A pleasure to share your fine cover.
