Cover Reveal: Perfect Tenn by Heather Dahlgren



☆☆PERFECT TENN COVER REVEAL☆☆


Like Sexy guys? Like to laugh? Like romance? Than you'll love this.
Perfect Tenn by Heather Dahlgren
What can I say about my life?
I teach four-year old’s, my friends are few and far between, and my parents’ sex talk would make a Playboy Bunny blush. Dating, well I think my drawer of toys can answer that, just ask my mother. I live with my best friend who I can’t survive without – Oh did I forget to mention he is sexy as f*ck.
Tennyson, my best friend, decides he will figure out my love life. My hero, not really. His idea of helping me out is setting me up with loser after loser while he bangs every skank in the city. However, with a little persistence from him, much unwanted advice from my mom and pushing from my friends, I give date after shitty date a try.
Thing is, something holds me back. Something I can’t exactly put my finger on. I solicit Tenn’s help to fix the potential problem. Bad Idea. It won’t be easy, it will be fun, but shit I hope it’s worth it.
I’m Regan Banks and my life is about to change, big time.

So You Want to Self-Publish: Stage Eleven



STAGE ELEVEN: PRE-RELEASE PROMOTION

There are a few ways you can hype readers up for your book.

Cover Reveal – This is the first impression people have of your book. Make sure this and the blurb are attention grabbers. You can set this up yourself if you know html and don’t mind emailing a lot of blogs. Otherwise you can hire a company to help you with this. A few honorable mentions are: Xpresso Book Tours, YA Bound Tours, and Enticing Journey Book Promotions. 

Release Blitz – 1 spotlight post on a blog, multiple blogs take part in posting on the same day. Information about your book, the cover photo, buy links, teasers, excerpts, and more will be provided to the bloggers. Again something you can set up, but it is a lot of work.

Blog Tour – These can run anywhere from 5 days to a month, just depending how much you are willing to shell out. The blogs can do spotlight posts, include excerpts, do Q&A’s, and more. I would recommend going through a company the first go around just to see how it works. I’ve used YA Bound Tours, Xpresso Book Tours is another reputable agency, and Obsessive Pimpette Promotions does all of these things for free!

ARC Reviews – Providing readers an early version of your book (edited or unedited, at your discretion) to post an honest review on release day. This is a great tactic to generate buzz by having reviews when it releases to the public.
Get professional teasers made and pimp them out on all the Facebook #TeaserTuesday posts. If they have branding on them the better, even if they don’t match the book exactly. You just want something eye catching.

Acknowledgements - The Darkness Remains by Kira Adams **WARNING: Semi Spoiler Ahead**



Warning: Semi-Spoiler Ahead - You probably don't want to continue reading if you haven't read The Darkness Remains yet. If you have, or don't care, or don't know, carry on...

Acknowledgements

I’ve been writing this book on and off for a very long time. I can’t remember when I started this journey, I just know it’s been much longer than my usual one. At the end of the day, I made it here and I’m honestly ecstatic with the outcome.

It had been so long since I had been in Cullen, Phoenix, or Ike’s point of views, that I was worried it was going to be a lot of rough transitions and missing facts. I had to go back and fact check a lot between the three novels, but at the end of the day, I think they are that much tighter for it.

Thank you to all of my loyal readers pushing me every day to write and finish this up so they could get their grabby hands on it! Thank you to my PA, Ashley Graham for pimping this series whenever you get a chance. Thank you to my street team for always having my back with this series and for loving these characters as much as I do. Lastly, thank you to my mom and Mario for being my biggest fans and supporters. If no one else in the world blindly supports me, you two do and it means the world. You don’t even like scary movies or books but you read this series for me, Mom, and you actually liked it. I think that is so cool. Thank you for giving me that gift.

If you haven’t guessed already this was really Ike’s book. There was still glimpses into Phoenix and Cullen’s worlds, but this whole book was centered on Ike’s struggles, his triumphs and what made him who he was. Into the Darkness was Phoenix’s book as Emerging from Darkness was Cullen’s. In each of the books the characters grow and transform to really learn who they are. It wasn’t easy writing Ike’s POV. In fact, it was downright depressing most times, but one thing I felt it was? Real. Ike has always been that comforting father figure who makes mistakes but can own up to them. He is a protector and I really wanted to focus on him getting a little happiness this book. He’s been through more than any of the other characters and yet remained strong and resilient; unwavering.

You’re probably thinking why give him something so great just to rip it away at the end, right? You’re probably cussing at your screen, calling me a selfish bitch. I don’t blame you. Get it all out. Because what I am about to tell you isn’t going to make you feel better, but it is going to be REAL. Everything happens for a reason. Everything is an opportunity for a learning experience. Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

I wish I could tell you everything was going to be okay. I wish I could tell you all our heroes survived this…but I can’t. Because honestly, what fun would that be? You’re just going to have to wait and see.

Until next time,


Kira Adams
