Book Spotlight: Resistance

This book was not published by Rivershore, and we haven't read it (yet!). We recieved a request to spotlight the book for the author.

About the Book

“Don’t you know? Animals like you have no soul.”
Could God ever love a half-blood all of society looks upon with such fear and disdain? Jace once believed so, but when a tragic loss shatters the only peace he’s ever known, his faith crumbles as the nagging doubts he’s tried to put behind him descend on his grieving heart. With them come the haunting memories of the bloodstained past he longs to forget, but can never escape.

Taken from home at a young age and raised to serve the emperor, Kyrin Altair lives every day under a dangerous pretense of loyalty. After her unique observation skills and perfect memory place her into direct service to the emperor, Kyrin finds herself in further jeopardy as it becomes increasingly difficult to hide her belief in Elôm, the one true God.

Following the emperor’s declaration to enforce the worship of false gods under the penalty of death, many lives are endangered. But there are those willing to risk everything to take a stand and offer aid to the persecuted. With their lives traveling paths they never could have imagined, Jace and Kyrin must fight to overcome their own fears and conflicts with society as they become part of the resistance.

Available for purchase on Amazon May 20th!

Book Launches

One of my favorite parts of publishing - as both an author and a publisher - is book launches.

Every author's launch is different. Mine take place in my house. They're low-key, with food, games, and book readings - and mainly conversation.

Me (on the right) preparing for my first book launch - with the help of a good friend (and cover model for Shrouded Jewels and As Fairydust Settles), Jojo.

 K. Newman, signing her first novel, The Lands (published via Rivershore Books).

One of my clients held a launch at a coffee shop earlier this year. She made a point to talk to everyone who came and made us all feel special. I was introduced to multiple people as "my publisher" and "my editor" and loved the titles.

K. Newman and me, showing off her awesome book.

Just this month, Nikki Abramson had a great book launch at her church. There were over 100 people there, and she had a card-making table, a table about her business (Renew Hope), and a dramatic reading of her book, I Choose Hope (published via Rivershore Books).

I manned the book table (as the publisher I knew the prices and how to describe the book) and had the opportunity to meet and talk with almost everyone who came.

What did your book launch look like? If you haven't had one yet, what will you include when you do?

Mini Vacations

Everyone can use a break sometimes. As much as I love my job with Rivershore, I'm no exception.

One of my friends recently commented that, as someone who works from home, I don't get days off. It's true that I work most weekends, but I've never thought of it as a downside. You see, I get mini vacations throughout the week.

I go to the gym three times a week.

I indulge in coffee almost every day. 
(Okay; this may be a caffeine addiction more than a mini vacation, but it feels like the latter.)

I read books as part of my job!

Recently, my good friend Jojo and I went on a short (3-day) trip. We stayed in a hotel a few hours away, explored the town, watched movies, and went swimming. It was wonderful.

We came home refreshed and at the same time ready for another trip.

In lieu of that, I'll settle for tea and scones at home...while editing a project for Rivershore.

That's enough of a vacation (for now).

What do you do when you need a break?
