BOOK POST: 'The Deadbringer' Now Available for Pre-order on iBooks and Kindle. Release Date 5/27!

Deep breath...

Good news, everyone! My book, The Deadbringer, will be officially released on May 27! In addition, it's now available for pre-order on iBooks and Amazon Kindle

I feel like I'm dreaming. Quick, someone pinch me! Just not too hard or I'll punch you.

Before I go on, I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the bloggers and vloggers who took time to post about their experiences in self-publishing and ebook formatting. You were the light at the end of many long, dark tunnels.

As someone who generally sucks at blogging (how is it already two weeks since my last post!), I am in awe of the generosity of the bloggers and vloggers willing to share their knowledge. Blogging takes time, as does recording, editing, and uploading a video onto Youtube. And yet, the amount of information available is amazing. During my journey as a writer, I could always count on the bloggers and vloggers to help pull me out of the abyss I found myself many times consumed by. 

My sanity thanks you <3

So yeah, the ebook version of The Deadbringer is now available for pre-order on iBooks and Kindle. Currently, I'm in the process of making it available for other e-reader platforms. I'll keep you posted on the progress. Unfortunately, pre-order will not be available for the print version of the book and it will not be available for purchase until May 27. To make up for that, here is the full cover of the print book: UPDATE JUNE 2016: I have removed the full cover due to finding an illegal ebook version of my book. I am sorry for this :(

If you want to learn more about the book, I recommend heading over to the book website. I spent yesterday updating it and putting up a few goodies, such as a map of the world my book is set in and a brief glossary of the characters, races, and factions. After looking around on the book website, I hope your curiosity will be peaked and that you will consider getting a copy.

As of today, there are only 7 more days left till The Deadbringer is officially released. Now if only there was a way to have my book delivered by Planet Express *__*

See you soon,

After A Long Hiatus, Tomes & Coffee Is Back! Also, Book News Update!!

First things first:  I'm sorry. I started this blog as a way to document and share my journey as an aspiring writer and then just...disappeared. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know what I've been doing with my time and how I have been plugging away at my book. Still, I should have at least put something up on my blog but, nothing.

I would like to say this will never happen again, but life has a way of pushing and prodding at you until you have no choice but to dedicate 100% of your attention to it.

Still, I am going to do my best not to disappear :) Now, on to the update!

The biggest bit of news that I have to report is that my book is done, and if all goes smoothly (which it never does), will be released late May 2016! Yup, just a few weeks away. Needless to say, at the moment, everything is chaos. But a journey isn't much fun without a bit of adventure, so bring it on.

The name of my book is The Deadbringer and it is the first book in the Ellderet Series. It's a fantasy novel with elements of horror (boo!), so dark fantasy. For more information over the book, including what it's about, head on over to the About My Book section of this blog or check out the book website, which I am still working on. 

I'm on the last leg of my journey as an aspiring writer and soon, very soon, will begin a new journey as a full-fledged writer. A lot of falling down and picking myself up happened during the time I was away. Thankfully, I'm surrounded by some pretty amazing people and inherited my mother's stubbornness, much to my editor's dismay (I foresee a comic about this). 

It is with great joy that my first blog back is a positive one. But, really, life is what you make of it, and I choose to always move forward.

I hope you will join me on my journey.

See you soon.
