I just checked on Amazon, and the paperback copy of “Chasing Shadows” is alive. It’s ali-hi-hiiiive!!!
No, my dear reader, you are not…. Actually, I don’t know you personally, so I can’t say for certain. At first I thought I was seeing things, too, because certainly it was too good to be true. But, no, THE PAPERBACK EXISTS!!!!
This is the moment I have been waiting for, anticipating, longing after since I turned eight: To see my characters come alive on REAL pages! After years of plotting and planning and writing and ranting, I can now rest and die happy. Sleeeeep!
For awhile, I felt kind of like this little mouse with the cat watching it, desperately trying to make it happen for years and looking ridiculous doing it, with self-doubt leering over my shoulder the entire time. *small squeaky mouse voice* Faster, faster, FASTER!!!
Well, ha-ha! No more my furry little friends. This go-around, we actually get to touch the crisp texture of new paper as it turns to reveal a new page, smell the freshly pressed ink, gaze longingly at the gorgeous cover that Roan Carter lovingly–and patiently–bestowed upon this sequel. Boo-ya, literary world! I’m here whether you want me or not.
…. But I’d really rather stay, so I’ll tone it down. I promise. Eh, who am I kidding?
I was so excited that I kept doing this to random people, and it was freaking them out. Huh. People are so anti-social.
My sister DeAnna and I are going to take a copy on vacation at the end of this month and turn her Instagram into a silly palooza of “Chasing Shadows.” Basically, we’re going to do weird things like have the paperback sip a cup of coffee, wear a silly mustache disguise, use toilet stalls, hide in bushes and jump out to scare passerby. It’s going to be friggin’ awesome! I’ll give you the details for her account soon so you can follow all the wackiness that is our lives. Best selfies ever! Although, it will be of the book, so it’s not technically a selfie. . . I don’t think.
And if you haven’t fallen in love with these characters or this series by the time you finish, well….. Just no.
Let’s give a slow clap to the team at Ink Smith for allowing me to share this with you all!
