A Cover Reveal is a funny thing. I’m not sure whether it really does help marketing your new book, but I do it anyway. It’s all supposed to build hype leading up to the book launch. Well, I’ve chosen to do it on IWSG day, unashamedly to get maximum exposure!
This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post, in which we share our successes and failures as writers, our insecurities, in fact. Anyone can join in, just sign up at the IWSG Sign-up page, write a blog post on the first Wednesday of the month, and go back to that sign up page to link with everyone else–or a goodly sample. Our host is Alex J Cavanaugh, and cohosting this month are:
And now – the cover reveal for Zanzibar’s Rings (Viridian System #3)!
A galactic crisis: the entire comms system destroyed. How will spaceships in flight get home? Dolores is stuck in warp with a very dangerous passenger, Pete gets his shuttle home on manual. How come anything in close contact with orichalcum fixes itself? Just flying through Zanzibar’s Rings solves the problem, as the Federation’s Fighters find, as they invade the Viridian System’s settled planets. This is the final book in the Viridian System series.

Question of the Month
In your writing, what stresses you the most? What delights you?
Stresses me most: marketing. I suspect 95% of the IWSG members who have published will mention it. My second worst stress factor is finding typos or worse, homonyms or omitted words, years after publication :O
What delights me? Oh, so many things! My characters doing something wonderful. Some strand of throwaway plot that comes back to be the solution to a particularly tricky issue years later. Finishing the book. Finishing the paperback. People buying it. People saying nice things about it…. And… coming up with new ideas!
Over to you!
