A Date with the Devil is coming...

I release A Date with the Devil in 8 days. I can't believe it is really happening. I remember the day I got the idea for the opening scene of the book. I was so excited. It was something different, something dangerous.

I struggled with word count and meeting certain standards, but with my beta readers help it became a goal I could reach. Then the reviews began pouring in. 

"I bow before you woman! This is your best book ever! I loved Into the Darkness, I adored Emerging from Darkness, but this? THIS IS JUST PERFECT!" - Ewelina R.

"Kira Adam's newest standalone novel is a fast-paced novel that is expertly crafted and beautifully written. Bryce's journey is heartbreaking, and Kira Adams pulls no punches when telling us what Bryce suffered at the hands of her abusive ex-boyfriend, Robbie." - Sara M.

"I laughed with her, cried, screamed and cheered her on. A Date with the Devil is so beautifully written that when I started it I couldn't put it down. I finished it in 2 hours." - Angie C.

"This story seriously broke my damn heart. It hit so close to home, that in some parts I was crying, not only for Bryce, but myself as well." - Lucii G. 

"I don't know how best to say this, but this is so realistic and brutally honest in its depiction of abuse, it was difficult to read. I finished it last night and still find I'm gritting my teeth fighting back the emotions of it all." - Tammy H.

That is just 5 of the reviews. It has 34 rankings on Goodreads currently, 27 of them being 5-star reviews!

People are saying it's my best novel to date. That makes me so nervous, for a few different reasons. Whatever I write after this has to top it. What if the release is lackluster and I spent all the money on promotion for no reason?

There is a lot riding on this release for me since EFD was such a flop. I really thought offering ITD for free at the same time EFD was out would give me decent release day numbers...but not that many people have purchased EFD which is depressing for me.  

We're doing a release day party, a book blitz through YA bound tours, 2 Fiverr promotions, 2 eReader Owl promotions, a Thunderclap, and probably some advertising through Facebook. I am hoping I see a good return on investment. 

Check out this awesome promotional photo one of my street team members made me. 

Pretty cool, huh? And then a teaser I made for the big countdown! I can't wait to share some Tyson teasers with ya all. Until then, tata!
