When Ravens Fall Release Date

Yes, I finally have a Release Date. I will be celebrating the release of my first self-published book on...(Drumroll please)...

February 1st! 

The print edition will be ready at this time, with the Ebook version coming shortly after.

And may I just brag for a moment about how beautiful the print version of the story turned out. The picture does not do the cover justice. Don Semora went above and beyond when he designed this cover for me. I am so excited to share it with everyone.

As I have mentioned before, I will be donating all of my royalty sales from this little book from the first few weeks to a couple of special charities: I've already committed $150 to Purple Stride to help bring research and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer and anything above and beyond that will be going to Relay for Life. How long I keep this Event open will depend on YOU. :) If you think you may like to read this story at some point, please purchase your copy sooner rather than later so that the proceeds may go to the Charity Event. I wish to thank everyone in advance who will be helping me donate to cancer research in memory of my Aunt Jojo, who is now in Heaven, finally free from her suffering.

I would like to spread the news about my new release and the Charity Event, and I am looking for a few hospitable bloggers who might like to invite me over to your blogs to Guest Post the week of the Release, February 1-February 5. If anyone is interested, please shoot me an email at

For all of my local friends, if you would like an autographed copy of the book, get in touch with me (either by email, facebook or phone) and I will get an autographed copy to you for $10. This will save you the cost of the shipping and actually allow me to donate more to the charity than if you purchase the book through Amazon. I will be covering the cost and shipping of these special copies myself. This will be a first come, first serve basis since I will only have so many of these special autographed copies to sell. Sadly, this offer is ONLY for my local friends and family in the Marshall/Homer/Coldwater area.

Over the next couple of days I will be making a few different announcements related to the Release Date, informing you about a few events and giveaways, etc. Below is a picture of the Grand Giveaway Package: An autographed copy of the story, along with a beautiful journal, a Celtic Lilla Rose hair accessory (that was as close as I could get to a Norse hair clip), a punky dragon figurine and a few little When Ravens Fall inspired sundries just for kicks and giggles. I will be letting you know how you may enter the Giveaway in just a day or two.

I look forward to sharing this story with you!


  1. It's soooooooooo beauuuuutttttiffffffuuuuuulllll. <3 <3 <3 (Wish I lived closer to you so I could get an autographed copy!)

    1. Well, don't give up hope yet...since you were one my Advanced Readers, you are in the running to potentially receive one. I will be raffling two autographed copies among all my reviewers so you stand a chance to still get a copy! :)

    2. EEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! :D :D :D

  2. Yay!!!!

    Congratulations! This is quite the achievement!

    I started reading my advance copy last night and the only reason I put it down was because I actually had to get up early this morning... but I am super intrigued and completely hooked (which doesn't happen often when I have to read on my computer screen, so kudos!)

  3. Ha ha! I know how much you love a physical book so that is saying a lot, thank you! :)

  4. So pretty!! I love that cover. Congratulations!!
