What a year!

It’s been some time since I’ve updated. I want to thank you all for your support since the launch of Second Life. I’m still finishing up Servant of the Three, but in the meantime, I’d love to see you on Friday! I’ll be at the World Dracula Symposium celebrating the 120th anniversary of Bram Stoker’s Dracula! There will be tons of vampire authors, book signings, and amazing keynote speakers. Click here for more information. Hope to see you there!

My First Signing

I just wanted to thank every one who came out to the North Texas Book Festival last Saturday. I’d had what has so far been the worst week of my life, so getting out, meeting other authors, and *gasp!* acting like just and adult and not a mommy… it was awesome.

Even though I did find a pacifier in my purse.

If you missed me, there will be a limited number of *signed* copies at the Dallas Book Festival, this Saturday, April 18th, from 12pm – 5pm at J. Erik Jonsson Central Library. After that, you’ll have to track me down to get your copy signed!

What you can do to help my book

This week has been awesome. Release Day and the ensuing live chats were way more fun than I expected them to be.

Lately, I’ve been getting a bunch of “How’re your sales?” And right now, I can only guess. The major retailers give you end-of-month sales reports, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Which brings me to my next subject: reviews.

If you’ve bought my book, thank you. Thank you times 100. If you enjoyed it, even better. Now I need you to do one more thing for me. I need you to write a review. It doesn’t have to be huge or in depth. Just a little snippet about what you thought. Then post it to wherever you purchased SD from. And if you really love me, post them to other places. The most important being Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Goodreads. Any or all of these will be a great help in getting other people to check out SD.

Thank you all again for such a wonderful beginning to my writing career! Stay warm!

‘Twas the Night Before Release Day

So my book, this little story I wrote mostly for me, will be commercially published in two and a half hours.

Wow. Just wow.

So there’s a couple of things I wanted to share with you all before I get wrapped up in promoting and working on the sequel.

First of all, I am so humbled and grateful to all of those who’ve helped me get here. Ryan, Netta, and now Lane and Robyn. You guys rock and it’s rubbed off. Thank you.

Speaking of reasons my publishers are awesome, check out these quotes and images from SD. Still one more that drops at midnight, but I love these so much:

I know, right?

And lastly, I just got my first review. You can read it here. Not gonna lie, I cried a little. Knowing that someone you’ve never met or spoken to likes your stuff is exciting, humbling, and all the other great feelings in the world.

I am so fortunate for all of this. Thank you all again for being part of it.

Surprise! Look what just popped up as available for preorder! We’re still doing the cover reveal on February 2nd, but if you were to… Let’s say go to the Amazon or B&N website, and just happened to search for Second Death by Emily Reese, and then possibly ordered said book in ebook or paperback, well… A person might get a peek at the cover as well.
