So from now until July 5th, The Poppet and the Lune is on sale for $10.99! Due to distribution channels and whatnot I unfortunately can't leave it at that price, but it's good for the next two plus weeks! So if you or anyone you know wanted to get yourself a print copy, now is the best time to buy!

However, there is also a DELUXE giveaway happening over at the blog, which will include a signed copy of The Poppet and the Lune, a high quality print of the original etching used for the book cover, and a signed copy of my short story, A Lover and its Ghosts.

Yay!

Check out madelineclairefranklin.com to see how to enter!

And guys? I'm on VACATION this week. No work all week, just writing, therapeutic cleaning, lots of coffee shops, and possibly a bikram class. I'm PUMPED.

And you know how the week will end? With A FABULOUS PARTY CALLED MIDSUMMER XD

SO MUCH PRODUCTIVITY the past few days! Holy crap. I managed to format two ebook files of The Poppet and the Lune, as well as the print version; I put together a pdf for the full cover (front, spine, and back); and last night I all but completed the book trailer.

This morning, my files were approved by the folks at createspace, and I ordered the first proof copy of The Poppet and the Lune. It should be here by Friday.

OMG YOU GUYS :O :O :O :O

This is all SO REAL now! My book is about to be in my hands, printed and bound and lovely and precious, 361 pages of magical publishing JOY! The book trailer is almost done, and I'll have Part I: A Heart Full of Stitches available for a free download some time this week. I'm so excited.

Also important, I've learned just how much time actually goes into everything I've done in regards to formatting and publishing. Next time I launch a book (Fall 2011!) I'll be able to time it all much better. I wasn't too pressed this time, but I put off a lot of the time-consuming parts, like everything I did this weekend XD

So.

*SQUEEEEEEEEE FOREVER*

That is all! :D

I posted yesterday some options for a prequel to TPaL. So, what about a sequel?

a) about the original characters

b) about the three young girls in Weirding's castle, Aubrey, Aurelia, and Scarlet

c) about a whole new character in the same world

Thoughts?

Thanks guys! I appreciate your input :D

Prequel?

 So, I have a question for you:

If I were to write a prequel to The Poppet and the Lune, who would you like it to be about?

a) Grizelda / The Witch

b) Faolin's ancestor's on the weremen side

c) The Weirding Line

d) Gabriel

e) the witch who made the ring of moonbeams and the ring of sunlight

None of those necessarily have to be mutually exclusive, mind you.

Thoughts?

Jared is going to Auburn tonight, so I'm going to get my paints out and have at it. I talked to a few illustrators about interior illustrations for TPaL, and the bottom line is that we can't afford to pay someone else to illustrate at the moment. So I'm going to give it a crack. I have a... "unique" style. I don't know, I used to think I had some talent but a former boyfriend told me that I didn't (:P), and even though I know I shouldn't listen to one other person... it's hard to not hear that whenever I struggle with an image. I am NOT the most accomplished visual artist. But I like it. And I do think I'm decent some of the time. Anyway, I'm going to try to create interior illustrations for TPaL (11- one for each Part and the Prologue), and from there, think of images to use for a cover. Cause... guys...

I think I'm going to self publish. )

It's an exclusive submission to an agency that reps a lot of fantastic writers. I should hear back in about a month, hopefully sooner. I'm so excited. Guys! TPaL is leaving the nest! :}
