Carolina Dawn went on pre-sale today! So, it is officially published.
This link takes you to the ebook: Amazon
And these links takes you to the print: Amazon
As they just went up, Amazon hasn’t combined them under my author account yet. In five days, they should both show up on the links. Amazon will deliver your ebook to your e-reader on Feb. 14, and ship the print edition beginning on the 14th.
Just FYI, Barnes & Noble have the print edition on special sale price. And, they show all three print books under my author link.
If you buy a print copy on Amazon, you can get the ebook edition for free.
I will have print copies of Carolina Dawn with me at MisCon 32 and SpoCon.
This is the cover for Carolina Dawn, the third and final book in the Spirit Missions series! This cover, created by Scott Deyett (InHouse Graphics) will grace the ebook editions of Carolina Dawn when it releases on February 14, 2018.
I think Scott did a great job here. I gave him some brief details on the main character, a little about the theme of the book and what Amy should have. Rather than stick with the dark blue theme of the previous books, he brought out the dawn for this one and it rocks.
The Title Breakdown
Carolina. The book takes place almost entirely in North Carolina. I hope y’all who live there can identify with the locations I use. Hope I didn’t destroy your house.
Dawn. Well, yes, there are a couple of scenes involving dawn breaking over North Carolina. But, you have to read the book to pick up why I used this title.
Here is the print version of the cover, full back, spine, and front.
Blurb on Back Cover
Amy Grossman must decide about Paul Shannon’s proposal. Guilt over Joe’s death still eats at her. Then there is Lucy–a competitor for Paul’s affection–to deal with. She also fills her days with gardening, handling power outages, and perimeter guard duty.
A stranger arrives with dire news turning Amy’s life new directions. With its very survival on the line, the community must pull together one more time.
She knows God has a plan for her, but surely ending up zombie food couldn’t be part of that plan.
Well, could it? That’s the question. Carolina Dawn will go on Amazon pre-sale later this week.
Sometime in the next couple of weeks, you’ll see the final cover for Carolina Dawn. With this little post today I hope to build your anticipation for the cover, and the book.
Recently, Scott Deyett, my cover guy, sent a mockup of the cover for Carolina Dawn. It is awesome! The final, high-resolution images should be even more so. I sent Scott the page count for the book, and the ISBN and price bar code for the print version. So, now he has what he needs to correctly make the cover fit around the printed copy. The e-book cover image is just the front of the print cover, so that’s easy.
When the final cover is in, I will run a cover reveal. It will knock your sock off.
It is slowly coming together.
The first readers, my wife and J. C. Wing of Wing Family Editing, think Carolina Dawn is pretty good. No brag. Just fact.
I will be putting our some advanced reader copies (ARCs) in the near future for some people who will read it and post up advanced reviews. I’ll post those in the blog as they come in.
The current planning date for Carolina Dawn‘s release is February 14, 2018.
Sometime around the first of February, both the e-book and print edition will on pre-sale or pre-order, so you can lock in your copy.
