Shameless Promotion of My Fellow Writers: Carrie A. Butler

I am really excited to let you all know that my fellow writer, critique partner and friend, Carrie A. Butler of So You're A Writer has some big news!  Carrie just inked a deal with Sapphire Star Publishing for her first novel, Strength.  WOO HOO!!!!



I first read Strength last year when I was critting for Carrie and she sent it over to me in pieces.  So every morning I would literally jump out of bed and check my email to see if there were more pages.  It is truly an awesome book and I can't wait for everyone else to experience it!  I don't even typically read paranormal romance very often but this book had me in its clutches from page one.  I love it.  So much that I'm not above wearing a t-shirt with the male protag's likeness on it.  That's right, I heart Wallace and I'm not ashamed to say it!  :)

And if you've been following Carrie's blog for any length of time then you already know that she is an amazing, talented, kind and funny person.  I am very happy for her and very excited to welcome her into the SSP family (This means we're pub sisters!  Woot, woot!  Now two of my favorite people are my pub sisters, Nancy S. Thompson and Carrie! Yay!)


Anyway, get on over to Carrie's blog and check out her big announcement!

  3. A truly magnificent moment! I'm so happy to have Carrie on board the SSP train. My own journey will be so much better for it. And I, too, loved Strength, and know it will be a huge success.

    But more than anything, I love my pub sisters with all my heart. Oh yeah, and Wallace, too!! LOL!

    Congrats, Carrie!

  18. Hi

    Popped over to give you a thanks for the feedback on my draft covers (since you're a noreply-kind)

    I like the bare backs too...but worry it'll imply the novel is MORE romance than suspense.

  19. "Dark and haunting" huh?

    Cool

    I was afraid the sensuality of the models would come across too strong.

    Thanks /OD
