Published! Phoenix Release Celebration Giveaway(s)

     Isn't it amazing? All that waiting, and now it's ready! Ahhhhhhhhh! So cool! Jumping up and down! Partying! Whoop! Whoop! Oh yeah, this rocks! Whoop-dee-do! Yay! Dance party! Party dance!
     Okay, dance party aside. I have some exciting news! Besides the fact that I published both the paperback and the Kindle edition of Phoenix today. I have a giveaway for you! Yay! It starts officially today and ends on April 23rd (it was a Tuesday, and it started on a Tuesday. I didn't think it really mattered beyond that). Check it out below:

     Well, technically I have two giveaways. That's the first one. The second is on Goodreads, but it's pending approval. God, I hate all of these approval waiting. First with the review of the print copy, and now this. Waiting sucks. But you can check it out below, even if it doesn't work. It may not work until I get approval for the giveaway. I don't know.

     Let's get the scoop on these awesome books I just published today. They kind of rock, at least in my opinion they do.
     Okay, so the print book can be found here: Now that's the book's personal eStore from CreateSpace. In 5-8 days Phoenix will be up on Amazon and Amazon Europe. But it looks like I found it on Amazon already. See below.
     Now the Kindle edition is below! Yay! It's on the right, and the paperback edition is on the left. Awesome!


You guys kick butt so well. I'd love it if you could review my book on your blog, Goodreads, and wherever you bought my book. Thanks so much!

Final Stages

     Ugh. It has been months! Nearly a year since I said I was going to start the publishing process. Now I'm done with the editing. I've got the cover. I've got the copyrights, the ISBN, I've settled everything. Now I have to wait.

     Now you'd think that wouldn't be a problem, considering all of the waiting I've done already. I want to hurry up and publish it now. But I have to wait 24 hours for CreateSpace to review it before I can publish it. And that's only in print form. I hope you all like paperbacks! I hate hardcovers, and I love paperbacks, so that's all good for me.

     But any of you who have been awaiting the ebook version are going to have to wait an even longer time than the rest of us. Once the print version has gone through I can do the Kindle version through CreateSpace. But I'm enrolling in the KPD Select program, so everyone who has a Nook will have to wait three more months before I publish Phoenix at Barnes & Noble.

     Anyways, I wanted to give you some images expressing my feelings on this whole 'waiting' matter:

How badly I want Phoenix to be published now:

I think you get the picture. Haha, get the picture, because GIF's are pictures... yeah. Not funny. I know, I should stop trying to be a comedian. Maybe I will stop... eventually.
