Happy Release Day to BETRAYED

It feels a little like Betrayed's 21st birthday today.

I nutured this book through draft mode and many rounds with my critique group to get it edited and polished. I worried when I sent Betrayed out on submission and I might have shed a tear or two when it came back rejected, I smiled when it came back with gracious comments and I squealed in excitement when Carina Press loved Betrayed and wanted to publish it.

I took a small step back, relinquising my possessive hold on every last word and comma I'd crafted during editorial revisions and line edits.

Now it's time for Betrayed to make its way out there in the wide world of readership. I've done all I could, it's time to let go and leave the rest up to Betrayed , although I'll  always be around to hold Betrayed's hand whenever I'm needed.

On Tuesday, 6 July, I'll be doing an author spotlight on the Carina Press Blog. Please stop by for a visit.
There's bribery involved!
I'll be giving away a free copy of Betrayed :)

Betrayed releases today and is available right now from
Carina Press
Barnes and Noble
and most places where ebooks are sold.
