Just a quick post to let you all know that I have created a Goodreads page for A Hidden Fire, the first book in the Elemental Mystery series! Please, pay no attention to the author link for right now, I’ve emailed Goodreads in the hopes that I can get the name thing straightened out. Amazingly, there’s more than one Elizabeth Hunter writing books. Imagine that …
Also, friend me over at Goodreads if you’d like. Same name, here’s the link to my profile. I’m still getting the hang of stuff over there, and I don’t have tons of books up, but I know some of you are pros. Also, the never-ending book quiz is very addicting. Just putting that out there.
Moving forward, (okay, maybe this isn’t such a quick post) I will continue to blog here about my journey to independent publishing, fangirl stuff, and writing in general, but more detailed information about the book, and any other teasers, contest info, etc. will be found on the Elemental Mysteries website. My intention is to keep this blog focused on writing, publishing, and opinion while giving book fans a place to go for more detailed information about the series. I’m not trying to alienate anyone here, and I understand that readers have different interests, so I’m trying not to shove the new book/series down everyone’s throat. Hope that makes sense!
But, for those of you who are interested, I’ve posted Chapter 2, just to give you another taste of the story, along with some other little “bonus features” to pique your interest (hopefully). I’ll also be starting a contest next week to give away three Advance Reader’s Copies of the book to three subscribers over at the new site. So, head on over and sign up for email updates! I promise I won’t inundate your inbox begging you to buy my book. At least … not after the first week or so.
The closer I get to publication, the more stressed out I get. But I want to take a moment to say “THANK YOU.” No lie, you can’t imagine how much your encouragement and support mean to me. It’s easy to get nervous. I’ve invested a lot of time and (for me) money in this project, and I’ve really worked to make it the kind of quality writing that I know you deserve. This is not a whim or a hobby to me, writing and publishing is something I’m really serious about, and your support and attention has been instrumental in giving me the courage to put myself out there. I’ve said this before, but thank you for the gift of your time and attention. It means so much to me.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you over at the new site, on Goodreads, or over on Facebook. (Yep! I’m there, too!)
