From Imagination To Publication

Friday, June 7, 2013


Happy Friday!! So here's where things stand:

After a very successful virtual launch that pushed Uprising up in rank on both Amazon & B&N the book was doing well, but not as great as Oppression did with B&N last year. I wondered why so I did a little digging. As it turned out, Barnes & Noble didn't have it listed as a YA book at all (despite the fact my publisher submitted things correctly)...therefore it didn't exist on any YA chart and wasn't getting seen by any teen readers looking for a new book to read. Very frustrating.'s there now. Wish me luck now that it's on the right list!

Thanks to everyone who has helped me get the word out about the book, and special thanks to Andrew & Ali for having me on their blogs today!

Throughout the tour I'll be collecting comments from all of the blog tour stops. At the end, I'll select a random winner. They'll get an UPRISING poster, an UPRISING notebook, and a signed copy of OPPRESSION. Thanks in advance to everyone who checks out the blog tour posts, and thanks to all of the bloggers who were nice enough to invite me over to their blogs.

During the tour I'll also be doing a promotion for the $0.99 UPRISING e-book. If you purchase it for Kindle or NOOK, enter here to win a signed copy of UPRISING.
