Happy Release Day!

Available at www.freyasbower.com I'm so excited!

Pinch me...just ten months ago I was driving the family crazy, because I had two characters arguing in my head and I couldn't get them to shut up. So, I did the only logical thing; I went to the computer and started writing down everything they were saying. Two days later, I was finished. I had taken a break to watch the public fireworks, as well as the ones we set off at home, but the minute I woke up on July 5th, I went back to the writing.

And by five o'clock in the afternoon, I was satisfied with what I'd written.

Now...what to do with it?

Spell-check; let it rest for a week, and re-read it! Then a month later, send it out, of course!

Rejected not once, but twice by the same publisher (I looked at the second email and thought, 'Um-hmm... I know. You rejected it two weeks ago!'), I sent it off again and three short weeks later it was accepted. Revisions by January; edits in March; and now everyone who wants to can read it!

When I 'fessed up to my mother, I warned her 'This is a book where, if you read it, you will blush profusely, call me up and blast me for all the naughty words, but be secretly proud of me...I hope!'

She answered, 'I may not be proud of what you write, but I'll always be proud of your writing ability!'

Thanks Mom...

And I've shocked several old classmates: 'Sweet, innocent Kenzie wrote THAT?'

Yup...Sweet, innocent Kenzie grew up:) (Blame college. Or Katie Blu, Brynn, Kaenar, Regina, etc!)

Leave me a comment and I'll do a random draw for a free download Thursday. How does that sound?
