Today I’m really excited to share two things with you: the new title of "The Devil You Don’t" and the cover art, done by the wonderful and talented Charlene Maguire!
The new title is "The Devil Inside." Not a tremendous change, but it more accurately hits on a recurring theme throughout the book. And the cover is...
Charlene was kind enough to give me an image designed to look like a real, honest-to-goodness book and I got all giddy over it.
We’ve still got a ways to go in the queue for the editor, but as new developments or milestones come up, I’ll let you know.
Hi everyone! I’m climbing out of the crazy-busyness that has been March. Here in Northeast Ohio, it’s still cold, but the sun has been out, thankfully. I am excited for real spring weather.
I wanted to let you all know that the manuscript is in! I turned it in last weekend after an inspiring retreat with some of my writing friends. I also read the fabulous YOUR BOOK, YOUR BRAND by Dana Kaye. Those of you who are authors must check it out. I’ve got lots of great ideas for publicity now!
But since we don’t have a release date yet - that’ll be the next update! For now, I’m working on my new manuscript, THE ENIGMA VARIATIONS, which follows three people in a small town after they receive a mysterious code in the mail. I’ll also post short stories for LOST MEMORIES as I finish them, but to be honest, I have been very into ENIGMA - I’m at about 20,000 words, and I hope to have a good first draft completed by this summer.
Well, I’m on my lunch break at work, so I had better get moving! Can’t wait to give you all more news :-)
I thought long and hard about the cover...
Should I stick with the crown of blood or should I head in a different direction? I chose a different direction. And this... is the result.
Why constellations? Why is there a crown in the sky? Why is Thom standing on grass? OK, so I don’t know why he’s standing on grass. But for the first two questions, the answers are in the book. I guess its safe to say, this cover reflects the content of the book more than the title itself. And that... makes it even more awesome. Oh, I can’t wait to see it in print! Can you?
Aside from this new cover, the content of the book is well on its way to publication. It has been sent to the media and influencers for the pre-launch marketing campaign. So, the next time you hear from me, the book will be on its way to you.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: If you ordered a paperback, log into your Inkshares account to double check your shipping address. Be sure it is the correct place you’d like the book to be sent to. If you have trouble logging in, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Well, that’s about it for this short update. I hope you like the cover, as much as I and the team at Inkshares do. Until you hear from me again, have a wonderful week ahead!
Hello, everyone! Just a quick update, since I haven’t been on in a while. I was sick for nearly two weeks - ugh!!
I’ve received feedback from Andi, the amazing editor who worked with me on the manuscript review, and I’m currently revising to incorporate her thoughts. I’ve also received the information from Inkshares about what I need to submit to them. I expect to have everything packaged up and sent off by mid-March. Then, we wait for the release date!
I’ll continue to update here and to my social media with news, although I’m currently taking a bit of a social media break. Gotta put the mind to work revising. Tell your friends they can still pre-order if they’d like :-) Also, check out my calendar at www.caridubiel.com/calendar. I’ve got three speaking engagements coming up, and any new events will be added here as well.
Have a great one, readers!!
Hey again, guys!
It’s been quiet from me a while, but here is finally an update on ARTIFICIAL GENERATION!
As you know, I didn’t win the contest here on Inkshares I joined, and after it ended I chose to end the crowd-funding, so I didn’t reach any of the goals for publishing through Inkshares.
That was because the funding took too much out of me.
But I promised you then ARTIFICIAL GENERATION would still be a reality, and now it is!
The ebook can already now be pre-ordered for Kindle, just follow this link here:
The paperback isn’t up yet, but will be up by the release date on March 1th.
ARTIFICIAL GENERATION is also on Goodreads, so head on over and add it to your shelf, or give a review whenever you get around to reading the book!
I know there’s been some confusion about getting the book and not because of this site.
Even if you bought a copy last summer, you will have to buy a new copy now through Amazon. The money you spent on Inkshares should have been returned to you, though, so you didn’t lose anything.
Again, thank you to everyone that helped me last summer, and everyone that has stuck with me since.
You are all amazing, and if not for the enthusiasm I met when trying to win the contest, I’m not sure I’d have gone all the way with ARTIFICIAL GENERATION as I now have. Thank you.
