Happy 1 Month Birthday to Uncovering Cobbogoth!

I can't believe it's already been a month since Uncovering Cobbogoth was released!  What a month it's been, too.  There have been so many cool things I've gotten to do and still get to do to spread the word about this little brain-child of mine.

Here's a quick re-cap:

Last week I got to go do an interview with Nick Galieti from The Good Word podcast.  He was super cool, and it wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it was going to be.  Stay tuned for when that airs.  I'll be sure to post it here.

Before that, I got to visit an entire class of 6th graders who spent the last few months reading the first Cobbogoth.  Check out that post with all of their amazing reviews and drawings of their favorite scenes from the book here.

All last month was Uncovering Cobbogoth's debut blog tour.  There were so many incredible reviews written during that fantastic event.  You can read the most sparkly ones here:

Finally, I got to finish off the month of May by seeing Uncovering Cobbogoth's Book Trailer in my local movie theatre.  Yeah...that was pretty amazing. :-)

But that's not all.  Coming up next week, I'm participating in two very cool things.  The first is Friday June 20th.  I will be speaking at a BYU Creative Writing camp for 7th and 8th graders.  I can't tell you how much I love talking to kids about writing and creating stories.  They always amaze me! And, I have to admit I'm a pretty big fan of BYU.  Go Cougs!

June 20-22 I'm participating with 14 other amazing YA authors in EuphorYA, a Speculative Fiction Scavenger Hunt.  This is going to be epic for two reasons.  1) I'm going to be giving my first sneak peek for Book 2 in the Cobbogoth series: The Lemorian Crest! and 2) The grand prize is going to be pretty amazing--free books, book swag, and a $75 nook gift card.  I know! I'm a little jealous I can't enter myself in giveaway.

And this is what I've been doing in between it all:

Yep. Those are edits for Book 2! My sister (The illustrator) and I are both hard at work ship-shaping this baby up to submit to our editor come October--sooner if possible.

Amazingly, there is still more to come!  I can't wait to see what July has in store.

Once again, I want to close by thanking all of you who have supported Uncovering Cobbogoth so far.  Whether you've purchased a book, told your friends about it, or just cheered me on, it has all helped immensely, and I can't tell you how much all of the support and enthusiasm has humbled and amazed me.  So thank you.

Thanks again for everything, Retro-readers, and stay tuned for all of the cool stuff coming up!

P.S. Don't forget to hop on over to Goodreads or Amazon and write a review if you've already finished Uncovering Cobbogoth.  Word of Mouth is the best way to market a book, and that means the more mouths spreading the word, the better.  So, I guess what I'm trying to say, is I need your mouth!  :-) If you've already been putting it to work for us, thank you a million times over.
