It's been a crazy week for me with the upcoming release of Damnation's Door, the final Cursed novel, and preparing for the promotion and release of Midnight Sky, the second in the Dark Sky trilogy. That said, I still have time to promote Weekend Writing Warriors, the weekly blog tour where authors get together and share 8-10 sentences of their current, upcoming, and newly released work. I'm still carrying on from chapter one of Damnation's Door, and decided that a little chaos is in order. After being faced with one of her most loathsome enemies and his cronies, Constance decides to take matters into her own hands...
I took a risk myself, and threw my silver knife at Drake.
I didn’t miss–I hardly ever miss–but I didn’t hit my mark.
The thin silver blade slammed into the neck of the Possessor standing beside Drake. The huge bounty hunter had stepped to the side so the blade wouldn’t get anywhere near him. He stepped so far I was a little embarrassed at how off my aim had been. Deep down, I knew better. Drake was fast for someone his size, but it looked like he’d gotten quite a bit from his deal with the Devil.
The man lurched, blood gushing from the wound in his neck. He opened his mouth as though to scream, but a spiral of thick black smoke shot out of his mouth. The Possessor’s true form screeched and twisted away in the back room. Then room exploded into action.
Demons are free. Angels are fallen. Hope is dying...
Constance Ramirez and her adopted sister, Andromeda, have stopped Lucifer’s plan– They have closed the Heaven Gate and kept the demons out. But their choice came with brutal consequences, and now every angel on earth is trapped in their mortal body.
All that remains is closing the Hell Gate and establishing a balance once and for all. That means returning to the city of Constance’s nightmares, which has become a haven for murderers and monsters. But even more dangerous than their hunt is that Andromeda’s powers and instincts are turning darker, and this time Constance doesn’t know how to protect her.
Constance is ready to fight for her life, but her enemies have plans she can’t begin to imagine, and they’re prepared to make her suffer...
Trust is lost and hearts are broken in the epic conclusion in Amy Braun’s Cursed trilogy...

Now, onto the news. I'm happy too announce that the edits Midnight Sky for are done! I likely have some touch-ups to do that will happen when I begin formatting *cries* but I'm sure I'll catch all of them. I was also super excited to receive the artwork for the novel, which is freaking spectacular. Deranged Doctor Design nailed my idea completely, and I couldn't be happier. It's kind of killing me not to show the artwork, but the cover reveal is June 5, but there's still time to sign up for it, along with all the other blitzes and promos I have coming up!
Pre-Order Release Blitz for Damnation's Door (Starting soon!)
Now, writing news. While I'm going to be formatting and preparing Midnight Sky, I'm still plugging along with the end of the second Areios Brothers novel. I don't think I've ever had this much trouble writing an action packed ending, though I came up with some absolutely wicked ideas regarding the third book in the series. Not that it will be next on the docket. Nope– Iron Gargoyle is next on the list. I'm still working on the plot, which will likely take a full day, but I'm committed to planning it out so I can send it to Beta readers and publishers after that. It will take a few months to complete, but I'm going to be excited to see it through.
So, that's my truckload of work. Looking at it now reminds me why I wish I didn't have to worry about my Real Job. Yeah, it pays the bills and pays for my writing, but I would really rather just be writing. Such is life, right?
Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the other Weekend Writing Warriors blogs and leave some love for the authors. Weekend Writing Warriors has just about every genre you can imagine, so you're guaranteed to find something you like! Cheers!
It's been a pretty good week so far! On Monday I threw myself into creating the Iron Gargoyle character profiles and world history. I absolutely love it, and can't wait to get started on the first novel. Not that I know the details of the plot yet, but still!
For now, I'm continuing to write the sequel to Storm of the Gods, the second Areios Brothers novel. I'm having a little trouble with the end fight scene, which is strange for me. Good thing it's only the first draft!
Now, onto the cool stuff. I'm very excited to announce that I've seen the final cover of Midnight Sky! I should be getting the full graphics package from the wonder team at Deranged Doctor Design soon, just in time for the cover reveal on June 5. I won't say much, except that it looks freaking amazing, and is exactly what I wanted.
If you're a book blogger coming across this site, you still have the chance to signup for some blog tours, blitzes, reviews, and the Midnight Sky cover reveal!
And that's all I have to share for now! I'm also going to be setting up the pre-order links for Midnight Sky next week, since that release date is also coming up shockingly fast. Never let it be said that I'll lack for boredom.***
It's going to be a very busy couple of days, especially as I prepare for the Pre-order Blitz for Damnation's Door, which will be out in under two weeks! I plan to have a few contest going on, so be on the look out for those.
I hope everyone's week is going well. Book review coming Saturday! Cheers!
Last week was a doozy, and I hate to admit that I fell behind on my plans. I was caught up with Real Life errands and get togethers and had a crushing work week where I worked my first (and last) 11 hour straight shift. For the record, I only said yes because I knew I'd be responsible for all the work left behind, and Sundays are always extremely busy at the Real Job. That being said, I did what I could– hosting a special guest post, setting up more blog tours and signups (see below), and massively editing/re-writing Midnight Sky.
I'm hoping to have almost all of this crossed off soon and am diving headfirst into the workload today:
And here's everything I have scheduled for basically the next month:
The Midnight Sky edits will be done today with a couple more read-throughs before I set up the pre-orders. I should have my first sneak peek at the cover on Friday (woo hoo!) and am excited for the upcoming cover reveal put together by En Pointe.
I'm also expecting the Beta reads for Storm of the Gods back soon, which means I'll be doing quick edits before I send it out to publishers next month. Nothing to panic about right? *minor hyperventilation*
Also, I'm getting ready to start the world-building for the Iron Gargoyle series, which I'm going to start once I finish the second Areios Brothers novel. It's kind of killing me to have all these projects open and waiting for me, but only being able to do one of them at a time. But such is life!
So that's all that's going on! After the stressful, far from productive week I just had, I'm ready to hunker down and do some work. Hope everyone had a good weekend, and my fellow Canadians enjoyed their extra day off! Cheers!
