Girl Beneath Stars Release Date

Well I’m done with editing and finally have a release date for Girl Beneath Stars – July 23rd 2015.

And here’s the blurb . . .

Having escaped Nuovo, Willow Stanton struggles with life on the outside. Away from the shelter and safety of the Protected Area, she and her companions must hide from the Guardians who hunt them.

When Bracken comes back into her life, Willow is left unsure whether she can trust him. But when finding her father becomes a problem only Bracken can solve, she has no choice but to rely on the boy who betrayed her.

Once they find a hiding place at the Rebel base camp, Willow and her friends must risk everything to rescue her father, and join the Rebel cause. But the more Willow learns, the less certain she becomes of whose side she wants to be on.

I feel duped. I was taught there was a right and a wrong in this world. Good and evil. I grew up thinking Mudders were ignorant and Rebels were wrong. Then, I came to believe that it was the Establishment that was evil. I thought the Rebels were the good ones. Now, I realise neither are good and neither are bad. They’re a mixture of both, each begging me to take a side.

I’ve had so much fun writing the sequel and I hope you enjoy it. To all the people who have contacted me to say they enjoyed the Girl Behind Glass, I just want to say thank you. I can’t wait to hear what you think of Girl Beneath Stars.

Signature

One year on . . .

My eyes are falling out of their sockets. My head is addled with words and sentences, and swimming with punctuation that sometimes look like fuzzy caterpillars crawling across my screen, but I must not stop. I will not stop.

Editing

I’ve come out of my self-inflicted hibernation long enough to look at the date and realise that it is one year since I pressed the publish button on Girl Behind Glass. I’ve learnt a lot this past year, mainly about editing, hence my determination to do a better job than the first version of GBG.

I wrote a post not long after publishing, called: ‘Where is Out There?’
In it, I wanted to get my book out there wherever there was. So, one year on, and is it out there?

Well, yes and no.

Approximately 4500 copies of Girl Behind Glass have been downloaded. And with the limited promotion that I have done, I’m rather happy with that. Chuffed, even. My desire to get my book ‘out there’ quickly drained when I realised the effort and time a lot of self-published authors put in to accomplish it. When I looked at the time I had available, (I’m a mother and I work and I write,) I decided to concentrate on writing, rather than marketing and promotion. There is very little point in investing in promotion when I had very little to promote. One book.

So one year later and I’m almost ready to hit the publish button again. In fact, I could almost give you a date. Well, a month at least. July. That means I’ve got limited days to complete the final edits, write the blurb, release the first chapter, and format the book for various publishing sites. So really, I shouldn’t be writing this blog post, but instead I should be glued to the screen arranging letters in a completely different manner.
