Happy March, readers, and also happy spring! I pray that all of you made it through the winter safe and healthy and are finally experiencing some better weather. Here in Missouri, we’ve seen quite a bit of rain, but temperatures have been kind so far. Here’s hoping for a fantastic summer ahead!
Unsettled Shores Paperback Release
Only seven weeks until the launch of Unsettled Shores! This month was consumed by final edits and submitting for copyright registration, but the best part was finally holding a year’s worth of work in physical form.
When my proof copy arrived, I expected for the colors to be inaccurate and mentally prepared myself for another round of design edits as I drew the book from its packaging. After all, that’s how every other proof copy had been to this point. (Twisted River required four tries.) So, imagine my surprise when this one appeared exactly as it should! Which means good news for all my paperback readers; you can purchase your copy on April 30, a full two weeks before the official publication day.
The eBook version of Unsettled Shores is now available for pre-order at the special discounted price of $2.99 for readers in U.S.A., Canada, Great Britain, and Europe. Pre-orders are important as all sales are logged on publication day, moving a new release higher in overall ranking. Prices will increase on May 16, so don’t miss your chance!
New Website Features and Library Purchases
You may have noticed some changes when you log onto my website (kelseygietl.com) this month. I created some much-needed new homepage graphics for all four books as well as a new header, which is also shown at the top of this email. In addition, all of the individual book pages have been streamlined, providing the most important information in an easy to digest format.
Plus, important data for library purchases has now been added directly below the “Buy Now” button, making library purchase requests a breeze. Simply copy the required data into your library’s purchase request form and submit. For example, what you’ll see for Broken Lines:
If you are a book blogger/reviewer and would like the opportunity to read an eBook ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) for Unsettled Shores, please submit a link to your review site on the Contact Page. ARCs will be distributed April 1.
