Latest proof copy arrived!

Published 08/08/2014 by leannecrabtree

So the latest proof copy of Charlotte & Sebastian arrived about a half hour ago in the post. It looks so much better colour wise now that I’ve done in it two separate pieces instead of one big one.

There are still some issues though.

The cover is still a little pixelated, the writing on the back is too close to the spine, the floral swirl on the back isn’t all the right colour and, though I can’t do anything about this, the title and author name are not on the spine. Scratch that last one since I cant change that.

I must admit though, that I’m really pleased with it. What do you guys think?

It’s published!

Published 18/07/2014 by leannecrabtree

So I’ve just published Charlotte & Sebastian to Smashwords and enrolled it in the site-wide promotion–which means it’s FREE!–so it is now available to read in various formats and hopefully it going through the “meat-grinder” process hasn’t made it unreadable. Unfortunately, it hasn’t automatically been added to the Premium Catalogue, and been made available to other sites–B&N, iTunes–but I’ll be working to make it so when I get in from work later. Happy reading! 😀

I’ve enrolled my books in the current Smashwords promotion running this month only. That means you can get Cat’s Wolf, Wolf Claimed and The Sapphire Diadem for free with the code SW100 at the checkout.

You can read 15%-20% samples beforehand and there is an array of formats for you to choose from. Enjoy!

I’ll also be enrolling Charlotte & Sebastian in the promotion when I post it tomorrow or Saturday! 😀

Merch

Published 15/07/2014 by leannecrabtree

I had this idea to do some merchandise in relation to my books: bookmarks, postcards, badges etc and have just been scouring the net trying to find some reasonably priced ones. I found this site that looked promising. Less than $10 for 50 bookmarks. Uploaded my design and everything and still cheap and then I go to checkout and suddenly it’s charging me $90 delivery. Should have known it was too good to be true 😛

So my question to my lovely readers/fellow bloggers and writers is: do you know a good value site for merch printing?

AND for those of you who don’t own a kindle, I’m publishing Charlotte& Sebastian to Smashwords on Friday or Saturday – the 18th or 19th of this month! 😀

I’ve just spent the last hour or two making a cover for Charlotte & Sebastian’s paperback edition. I’m really hoping it comes out looking good and un-pixelated, which is the only real reason why Cat’s Wolf isn’t available to buy yet. I might still add a quote or something to it but what do we think? Like it?

Charlotte & Sebastian is FINISHED! Woohoo!!

Published 16/04/2014 by leannecrabtree

I finished it yesterday and Natalie Herzer has looked through it for me and pointed out some errors in spelling and the likes and I’ve corrected them. Hopefully it’s good enough as it is, if not I’m sure some nice reader will do the honours of pointing out any errors so I can change it and repost it to Amazon.

It’s still set for release on Sunday, so I’ll be posting it late Saturday night and it should be available for download Saturday night/Sunday morning depending on where you are in the world 🙂

I just hope you like it!

Several things

Published 14/04/2014 by leannecrabtree

1) It’s now only six days until the release of Charlotte & Sebastian. 6 days?! I really better work on that last chapter. I think I know how it’s going to go down now, think it’s worked out in my head anyway, just got to get it down on paper.

2) Blood Bound won over all the others books on my shelf. I’ve read a quite a few other books by Rachel Vincent so why not another? Think Delirium by Lauren Oliver will be next.

3) It’s now only 11 days until the Birthday Giveaway on author friend, Natalie Herzer’s blog where you have the chance to win four great books (including Charlotte & Sebastian).  Here’s the link to her blog: http://n-herzer.blogspot.co.uk/
