CHASING SHADOWS COVER REVEAL!!!

Published July 12, 2014 by Ashley Townsend

I could not be more ecstatic, excited, and flipping out in pure elation (lot of “e” words, there) to announce that “Chasing Shadows” officially has a cover!!! EEEEEPPPP! We’re just working on a few finishing details and deciding on text, and then it’s bada-bing–off to the presses! I’m freaking out here! Which I thought was a tad obvious with all of my exclamation points, but I thought I should clarify for your benefit. ~_^

Is it weird that I want to make out with you sweet, sweet cover?

We’re almost done with the final edits, as well, and I have been smiling and crying and laughing all over again as I read it for, what? The 50th time? It still gets to me! I cannot wait to hear all of your reactions to the newest additions to our cast of Serimone characters, including (be still my heart!) Damien Lisandro, the handsome, tortured, cheeky Spaniard I’ve mentioned before. I keep getting hung-up on his scenes, reading them over and over and smiling as I pick up new inflections in his tone. Ack! I just adore him and know you all will too.

Side note(s), because I have way too many updates to give you guys:

BA-BADA-BAAAA!!!!!!!!! The “Chasing Shadows” playlist is nearly there and, if I may say so myself, spectaculaaaaar. We might even be sneaking it into the backs of the paperback copies, so keep your eyes peeled at the end of the story.

Also, our amazing web designer and digital wizard at Ink Smith Publishing, Macy, is diligently working on getting a possible cast together (yes, a Shadow and bow and forest and REAL people) for the “Chasing Shadows” trailer. Be. Still. My. Heart. So for those of you on the “Tube,” please subscribe and share Ink Smith’s YouTube page, and keep your eyes peeled for my trailer. *giggles in sheer delight* I just love saying that. http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQEHbnEhJhMf1me8LPVJy9Q

Don’t forget to add “Chasing Shadows” to your Goodreads, become a fan, and post your reviews. You wouldn’t believe how helpful and encouraging your responses are. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22545313-chasing-shadows?from_search=true

And Can we all just give Roan Carter a round of slow-building applause? He has been so diligent to work with me and make this cover for the sequel absolutely everything that I envisioned, and so much more. He’s even taking the time to work up a map of Serimone and the countryside for the book. Bah! *flat-lines in joy* Be sure to check out his amazing website and illustrations. http://www.roancarter.com/

As always, stay awesome, my delightfully quirky readers!

“Chasing Shadows” is Finally Coming Out

Published June 13, 2014 by Ashley Townsend

It’s finally happening! “Chasing Shadows” is being released this year. . . . In PAPERBACK! That’s right people: my precious sequel to “Rising Shadows” (and my favorite overall storyline of the trilogy to write and read) is coming out in September of this year in ebook AND physical formats. Can you smell the enthusiasm? I am already envisioning that moment when I get to hold and sniff and—yes—more than likely lick it. But, hey, I’ve waited for what feels like forever to hold my precious in my hands. I might even strap it in a car seat, pop it in a perambulator, and take it for a stroll around the park, laughing all the way. . . . You think I’m joking. -_- When I unwrap my arc copies, I’m going to be like this old lady and go all “My precious!” on them.

A long, long time was spent holding out for a physical publisher, one that was interested in taking a leap with a fresh young author with great ambitions but not a ton of experience in the field. But I’m so happy I did! Ink Smith is like a dream to work with; they want this story out as quickly as I do, are willing to work with me on whatever I need, and they love to promote authors who are passionate about sharing the written word. It’s taken a lot of faith and a plenty of toads to find my “prince” in publishing, but it was well worth the wait. You’ll feel the same way when “Chasing Shadows” comes out, and trust me when I say that you do not want to miss this one: Will and Sarah get torn apart, the corrupt Cadius at last enters the picture (so evil!), death at every corner, another ball *cue girlish shrieks*, repercussions of time travel, Karen finds romance, and a handsome Spaniard named Damien who provides a shoulder for Sarah to lean on, and who I guarantee will steal your heart. Ack! I’m practically salivating just thinking about it. When I get the official release date, be sure to mark it on your calendars, because you do not want to miss this one.   

Pretty soon I’ll be releasing the “Chasing Shadows” playlist, artwork, sample chapters, character profiles, and interviews I do in town and on the web on a special page just for this newest installment in the trilogy. Below, be sure to check out the summary for the book on Ink Smith’s site, then “like,” Pin, Tweet, reblog—whatever you can do to help! I so appreciate you guys sticking with me for the long haul, and I know it will be worth it when the book comes out in September.
