Amber Shadows and the Crystal Locket

Pulled from post for revisions and other news
I'm currently revising this title and it may be several months before it is posted with the final version. I was not happy with how it read, so, being my own worst critic I pulled it from Authorsden.com to revise it with my new ideas, which I feel, the book will benefit from. I'm am also moving to Spring Grove, IL so between moving, getting myself and my children settled, and revising the Crystal Locket, I may not be posting on Authorsden.com or other places as much. I will resume posting on a regular basis when things are settled and I've got most if not all the revisions done to the second book.
On another note, Amber Shadows and the Missing Wands will be advertised on 3 Ezines, one of which is Pageonelit.com. I chose to advertise with Pageonelit.com because the websites have traffic in the thousands, and his sites have been listed with Writers Digest as one of the best websites available today for authors. John Weaver has asked me to do an interview and I should be doing the interview within two weeks. I'll try to post the announcement when the interview is posted along with the advertisement of my book.
In addition to my advertising my book, Mr. Weaver, the publisher/creater of all three websites, has read my book and graciously surprised me by submitting my book to the American Library Association. He has also entered my book in the Book of the Year contest one of his sites is currently having.
In October I will find out the results of the Book of the Year contest in Writers Digest. If my book wins, (and I hope that it does, no modesty held back here) I will post the news for all.
Anyone serious about promoting your work should visit Pageonelit.com and seriously consider advertising with them.
Don't forget . . . 10 chapters of Amber Shadows and the Missing Wands is available for free download here on Authorsden.com, and please let all your friends and family know. Word-of-mouth is one of the best ways to advertise, so please do. Anyone needing me to promote your work in the same manner, please send me and email, and I will be more than happy to do the same.
Also, please visit myspace.com to see my webpage and join my friends, I would love to hear from everyone.
Anyone wanting to order a signed paperback copy from me, please send your request before the 10th of August. I will get orders out once payment of check or money order is received. You will receive a signed book, poster and bookmark, all for $14.50 plus the cost of post. I have fifteen copies left over from my last book signing at the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Festival, so please contact me today if you would like to take me up on this deal.
I apologize for this being a long-winded blog, however I do not know when I will be able to post again with everything going on at the same time.
My best to all and I'll be back as soon as I can manage some free time to bring you up-to-date info on me and the Amber Shadows series.
Cheers for now!
