I just received the interior layout of The Rock of Ivanore from my publisher, Tanglewood Press. It's really beautiful. I'm reading through it now to spot any last minute corrections. So far I've found only a handful. (Thanks to my husband's keen eye for grammar and punctuation.)

My bookmarks arrived as well. I'd be happy to mail some out to other book bloggers to share with your readers. If you'd like some, please post a comment below with a link to your blog and an email address so I can contact you.

Finally, I got the first issue of my official newsletter THE CELESTINE CHRONICLES sent out to my first 150 subscribers. The newsletter is named for my fantasy series, in which The Rock of Ivanore is the first book. (In fact, the prologue of the second book The Last Enchanter is included at the end of The Rock of Ivanore.)

The newsletter will come out at least once a month and will provide updates about my book's release, excerpts, news regarding my other books, dates and locations of book signings and school visits, and links to my favorite book related blogs and websites. Subscribing is free and easy. All you need to do is to fill out the form below.

On December 15th, 10 subscribers will be chosen at random to receive a free book mark! In the coming weeks, I'll be giving away T-shirts, book marks, and maybe even an ARC (advanced reader copy) or two.

In the meantime, and both have The Rock of Ivanore available for pre-order. Thanks so much for your support, and don't forget to subscribe.
