New Cover for Tribute

Tribute has a brand spanking new cover! It’s super pretty! Thanks to Tishia at Paragraphic Designs for her amazing work. The new cover went live on Amazon and Smashwords today. Now Tishia is working on the cover for Vessel, the next novella in the series. I’m on track to publish Vessel by December.

In terms of word count this week, I added 2,100 words to the urban fantasy I’m writing. I only wrote two days, so that’s pretty decent. Hopefully I’ll get my butt in the chair and words on the page more often these next few weeks. I still don’t feel behind, because I was smart and reduced my goal soon after this round of ROW80 started. Originally, I thought I’d write the third Children of the Sidhe novella this round, too. But I decided I’ll just have too much going on with releasing my second book, diving into some marketing (which I haven’t really done before), and the holiday season in general. So I plan to finish this book by mid-December, and then take a break until January, when I’ll start writing Flight, the third Children of the Sidhe novella.

Speaking of marketing, fellow ROW80 author Nadja Notoriani had a great idea for a 12 Days of Christmas Reading Gift List. I’m helping her work through the details so we can put together a fun and simple promotion for the holiday season. There will probably be a giveaway involved, and hopefully a bunch of authors promoting recently released books. I think we have about ten authors interested so far, and several people willing to spread the word to their networks. There’s a good chance we’ll reach far beyond our usual audiences by cross-promoting. If you have a book you’d be interested in promoting through the list, or if you’d be willing to post a link to the list, send me an email at and I’ll make sure you get all the details as we figure them out. 🙂

Have a great week!

  1. Wonderful cover! Count me in as someone who would love to promote the 12 Days of Christmas gift list in any way possible – I will mobilize all my tweeting/G-plusing/Facebooking power. :p

  2. Hey J.R.! That’s a great cover! New cover…new novella…new promotion. Things are moving right along.
    Thanks for the shout out, too! I am very excited about the 12 Days List, and getting to know all the great authors who’ve joined in so far.
    I’ve got to get my novella typed and sent to betas…I’m slaking in that department. (Yikes!) I’d better get busy.

    Talk to you soon. (Oh…I’ll be sending you a few pics for button choices…)

  3. Love the cover, I would love to have red hair and green eyes!

    I have emailed you about the Christmas promotion!

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Great cover, such striking details especially hair and eyes.

    Looking forward to finding out more about the 12 Days of Christmas promotion. Sounds fun!

    I appreciate your realism this time of year. Adjusting our goals is a lesson we can all learn from, especially year-end and holiday time.

    Great check in!

  5. I love her expression, and the way she’s looking up . . it’s a bit mysterious. Plus her pose and expression paired with the title “Tribute” is intriguing.

    Congratulations on your 2,100-word addition. May you have many more butt-in-chair days. 😉
