Question of the Day: Where is Black Diamonds?

ImageTo answer the question, Black Diamonds is only halfway written. When I mean, halfway, literally halfway, I’m on Chapter 13, which is halfway through the book. I expected to have the book released this month, however, that is obviously, not going to happen. The only thing I can guarantee is that the book will be released this year. Thanks so much Diamonds for everything! *Razzle~Dazzle*

Where Is The Black Diamonds Preview?

So I have just completed the second cover concept of Black Diamonds, which I am feeling 100% about. As soon as the final cover is completed, I will be posting a special preview exclusively on Amazon’s Kindle for Part IV of The Diamond Collection. The plan is to have this special preview be free for five days. The anticipated release date of the novel will be December of 2013 or January of 2014.

As always, in the words of Lil’ Wayne, Sorry 4 the Wait!

What Is This Chick Doing?

Well, well, well, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog so I decided to drop a little note about what I have been up to. Well, I’m currently working on the book cover for Black Diamonds. I had announced plans to release a sneak preview of the book in June, which is still my plan as soon as I am able to come up with a cover concept I like. It’s one of the things I keep working on until I get the “feeling,” that the cover is indeed done. So why it may appear that I’ve gone ghost, I really am seriously sitting behind a laptop, browsing Istock and playing around in Photoshop. Hopefully, I can come up with something soon because I’m anxious to get feedback on what I have cooking for your favorite residents of Brookstone. In addition, I still have book signings coming up. Until the sneak preview is available, Razzle Dazzle.
