Update on Netgalley Ensnared ARCs

Today I got to see a mockup of the ARC cover and it's BEAUTIFUL beyond belief. <3 Here's a peek:

Also, when I posted my original ARC update here, I'd been told "we aren’t doing the Google signup but will have it available on NetGalley," and I thought that meant the eARC would be available in its entirety.

I was mistaken. I just got clarification today that Ensnared will be available as a "Sampler" on NetGalley which will encompass a few chapters, meant to whet reader's appetites. 

Sorry! I wasn't trying to mislead anyone and hate to disappoint you. It was an honest miscommunication on both ends. 

But take heart! As promised, I will be giving some of my printed author copies away once they get here. More info on that will be forthcoming. 

Until then, I hope everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!

Ensnared ARC update

148 days and counting until 
book 3 hits the shelves!

I'm so excited about sharing the "final" installment of the Splintered Trilogy with everyone!

A lot of you have been asking if ARCs will be available. With UNHINGED, I had a Google Doc on my website where people could submit to try to get an ARC, but the official word from my publisher on ENSNARED ARCs is that they aren't printing as many. So they'll be more like collector's items.

This means I don't get to have a Google signup and will be playing no part in who gets ARCs. The e-ARC will be available on NetGalley (no official date yet), although my pub told me they plan to be very selective about who gets a copy.
***UPDATE: 8-28-14***

The Ensnared egalleys (available on NetGalley sometime this fall) will only be sample chapters of the book, not the entire ARC. Sorry! I just found this out today.

On the upside, I will be getting a few author copies which I'll share with you via giveaways! Stay tuned here or on my FB page or twitter and I'll keep you apprised with deets when the giveaways go live.

Ensnared Excerpt and Happy Fourth of July!

Things have been quiet on my blog because I've been working hard on my Ensnared line edits. I was asked to knock 10,000 words off the original manuscript because my pub hadn't budgeted for a book quite as big as the one I wrote. *sighs*

That's what happens when you're long winded like me. ;)

But, I managed to do it without losing any story or scenes and I'm very happy with the finished product. I sent it off to my editor yesterday and am hoping she loves it as much as me.

To celebrate, I wanted to share an excerpt:

Also, I have a pinterest board dedicated to Ensnared teaser pictures here. So hop over if you'd like more insights into book 3!

Now, I'm going to take a week off of social media to spend time with my poor neglected family. I hope everyone has a safe and fun Fourth of July!

See you soon. (◕‿-)

The UK branch of my publisher is going to YALC this year at The London Film and Comic Con and is hosting FREE makeover sessions inspired by the Splintered Series. Readers can become their favorite characters in 15-min sessions with awesome make up artist Robyn Skinner

Fancy yourself an Alyssa rock chick, a Morpheus style netherling or a brooding heart tattooed Jeb? Come down to the shared publisher area on Saturday, July12th. All participants will be entered into a drawing to win a signed ARC of Ensnared before it hits stores January 2015!!! 

If you live close to London, or were planning to hit this convention, please stop by the Abram's booth to take part! I wish so hard I could be there to see the makeovers for myself. ;)
