Oh Hey! Welcome back, me!

I am just returned from 2+ weeks abroad. The trip had many exciting happenings – and by exciting, I mean unexpected.

I will be back with some pics and a recap of some of the better parts of the trip (it’s not all beer), but for today, just wanted to drop a reminder that The Broken World will be out in exactly seven days! Seven. That’s next Tuesday.

On a scale of one to ten, guess how freaked out I am about this?

BUT EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE I SWEAR.

 

Anyway…

I had a great trip, got to see my kid for several hours yesterday, slept like a log in my very own bed last night, and am still awake today at 3:15 pm. Things are…not bad.

Broken World Cover Reveal (plus Presale links)

I tried to hold out on you, but I just couldn’t do it.

Book 4 of the Eleanor Morgan Series is out there in the world, ready for you to pre-order it and then sit around in anticipation for five weeks.

The Blurb

A year of travel, countless battles, betrayal, love, and loss—all lead to the final gate, the last sacrifice, and the end of the world as we know it.

Eleanor has only two gates to open to restart traffic between Earth and the Fae Plane, and the only certainty is that either way, the world will change. For the first time, humans are the biggest threat to Eleanor. The government is descending into chaos and groups of humans are determined to eradicate the supernatural scourge they believe is destroying their world.
From the desert southwest back to the place it all began, old friends will reunite, old enemies will create chaos, and myths will walk the earth again.

An ancient prophecy comes to fruition through Raj’s Ruby Blade, and the only question that remains is who will wield it as the world breaks?

DRUMROLL PLEASE!

The Pitch

This is my favorite Eleanor Morgan book so far! It’s the end of the first major arc, and sets up the next couple books pretty well, if I do say so myself.

I hope you buy it and then, I hope you love it.

The Paperback

The paperback will be up for sale in about a month, and soon you’ll be able to preorder your autographed paperback here, too. (Probably as soon as tomorrow.)

Psssstttttttt…

For a limited time, i.e. until the release of The Broken World, The Cardinal Gate is on sale for $0.99. Now’s your chance to grab it at that price while you can. It won’t go on sale again until 2019!

Three Things Thursday – Broken World Edition

It’s that pre-publishing time when everything is all Broken World all the time.

  1. The cover reveal is going out in my newsletter tomorrow (see sidebar for signup!) and the preorder announcements will happen Monday at the latest (just waiting on a couple outlets to get it out and up). Paperbacks won’t be available for a while, yet, but I’ll let you know when they’re available.
  2. The publication date has been moved up a week to 3/20/18; ARCs will be going out this weekend
  3. I have comments back from the editor, and she seemed to like it okay (unless they were tears of despair about my writing, rather than tears because my writing made her have other, more positively sad feels).

I’ll leave you with another glimpse of the cover!

Writerly Wednesday: Broken World Update

I have the final copy of the cover in my hot little hands! My Facebook group, the Amyzonians, will be the first to get a chance to see it, and my newsletter subscribers will get a glimpse next Tuesday (subscribe in the sidebar!).

You guys? You’ll have to wait a week*

BUT, because I am kind, I am giving you a super sneak peek RIGHT MEOW.

Five Things Friday

Oh hey! It’s been a bit! Since it’s Friday, and I missed 3 Things Thursday, I’m going to give you TWO BONUS THINGS! I know, I know. You’re welcome.

  1. I am leaving for Ireland/Spain in just over a month. 32 days or something like that. I don’t even have a packing list yet, and I’m a bit worried. (I’m also worried that the Beer Guy says he’ll be cutting back the amount of stuff I’m bringing, because apparently, for a 16 day trip, you don’t pack 16 complete outfits + a couple extra “just in case” and then just some random shit because…reasons.

  2. I started new meds this week. The shrink lady said “take this in the morning, but if you find it makes you drowsy, you can switch to evenings.” So, I took my first dose Wednesday morning. I was yawning so hard all day I thought my jaw would split, and I kept dozing off at work. Including in a meeting. Which was super awesome. I switched to evening and took my second dose last night. I slept like a baby. But one of those good babies who sleeps all night. Not the baby who wakes up hungry every two hours. (I have been sleeping like a champ this week due to other new med, and it’s making me happy.)

  3. I finished The Broken World last week and sent it off to my first readers. Reader #1 – aka my PSM – gave me the best compliment any author could want. (Reader #2 – aka the Beer Guy – has given me zero feedback so far, but he hasn’t broken up with me yet, so I’m hoping that’s a good sign.)

    Narrator Voice: Amy did not feel terrible.

  4. My freelance editing business is busy AF the first half of the year. We  (because we are a we now) do have a few slots open. If you need proofreading, there’s definitely room. If you want a full edit, you’ll have to hit me up with your details so we can decide if we can fit you in. Either way, I suggest booking sooner rather than later if you want to guarantee a spot. Hit me up at amyrcissell at gmail!

  5. I get my kid back tonight! The current custody schedule of one week on/one week off has the advantage of cutting down the number of times Bean has to go back and forth during a week, which is easier on him, but seven days without my kid is hard AF. I’m always so excited by Friday. (That excitement is mostly gone by 7 am on Saturday morning when he wakes me up, even though he’s not supposed to wake me up until his clock says it’s ‘morning,’ but there’s always an emergency – like he needs help on a lego build. that help usually consists of me doing exactly what he tells me to do while I try to wake up.) We’ll be doing a fun lego build this weekend, though, because the tooth fairy (who he absolutely knows is me) gave him enough money to supplement his allowance so he could buy the Sydney Australia skyline lego architecture set. My baby lost his first tooth!

    I did not take this photo, which is why it’s so terrible, probably. Sadly, he lost his tooth about 2 hours after I dropped him off at school last Friday.
