I've just come one step closer to the April 30 release date of The Mango Bride: my editor at Penguin is sending the first copy , hot off the press! How long must one wait for mail to get across the country? Can't wait to see it!
Congratulations, Meg. That is fantastic news about The Wednesday Sisters. I am waiting for the cover to my forthcoming debut YA novel, Jet Black and the Ninja Wind, and am looking forward to posting it.
My Tween/Teen Fantasy was released last week on the 21st :-)
Congratulations Christina! I love the that orange and black cover!
I've been a member for about a month now. Although I've never taken part in a discussion, I really enjoy following them. Maybe I'm finally ready to come out of my shell! My YA Fantasy, Double Star, was released last November. Between working full time, raising two teenagers (!), trying to market my first novel and work on my second, there's not much time for anything else. Thanks for all the great advice and support ... it's appreciated more than you know!
Its always a frightening time when a woman comes out of her shell. Go get 'em!
A killer is preying upon the women of Cincinnati's westside. Devoted wife and mother, Ann Kern, fears for her life as circumstances suggest the killer may be someone close to her. http://tinyurl.com/8sd2cz4
3 years to write, 2 years to edit, 1 quick moment to present my first novel. My editor at Penguin mailed this advance copy. The Mango Bride will be released in 23 days, on April 30, 2013. Please visit http://marivisoliven.com/events/ to check if I'll be reading in your city and come join the party!
Congratulations, Marivi! Love the cover.
Thanks very much, Judith! Apparently the book designer asked to read the manuscript before working on the cover, and I think that made all the difference. :)
