#Rev Release Date/ FAQ/Update
|March 18, 2016||Posted by Cambria under Uncategorized|
So I wanted to get this post up ASAP. Its barely even light outside here yet (p.s. waking up when its still dark outside is evil! lol) but the second I opened my email I realized what a HUGE mistake I made.
I honestly try so hard to keep everything organized and on point for you guys. Sometimes I drive myself crazy trying to keep dates, make sure info is passed, etc. I think this is the first time I’ve messed up like this. I’ll likely be beating myself up all weekend about it too, even though it was my first major error in 5 years.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about here’s the down low: The original release date for #Rev was today, March 18th.
At the beginning of March I put out a post on my social media stating that I had to move the release date to April 1 due to circumstances beyond my control (basically, my editor had a family emergency and needed extra time to edit #Rev).
I also posted the same post in my Fan Club, on Instagram and Google +. I also sent out a newsletter with the new date and an exclusive look at #Rev. Didn’t get the newsletter and want to read the sneak peek of #Rev? READ IT HERE
(sign up for my newsletter is on the side bar of this website)
I forgot to update this website. I had originally pre-scheduled a post for #Rev’s release in my dashboard (then I could just add the book links when it published) so I could be ‘on the ball’ for release day… well I dropped the ball and forgot to re-schedule the post for April 1.
RELEASE DATE FOR #REV IS APRIL 1.
However, the second I get this book back from my editor, and make the necessary changes I WILL HIT PUBLISH.
I know you guys are upset. I know you are mad at me. I read some of the comments on the original post this morning (I pulled it down because today is not release day and pissing people off doesn’t make me happy).
All I can do is apologize profusely again for the change in date. This is the first time I have ever had to move a release date. I try so very hard to put a date out and stick to it because I know you guys look forward to these books. I know #Junkie had a cliffhanger and I know you desperately want #Rev.
I understand that and I’m sorry. I basically locked myself in a room to write #Rev and get this book out as quickly as I could because I don’t want to make people wait. #REV is done. Its slightly longer than #Junkie and it DOES NOT have a cliff hanger. Unfortunately I cannot edit the book myself. It would not make for a pleasant reading experience. ha! Sometimes things happen and while YES I am just as disappointed as you I can’t do anything about it. My editor needed more time.
Also, please understand I got sick at Christmas time and I am only just feeling better (its almost April) I was sick over 10 weeks. I had acute bronchitis, a sinus infection, I coughed so much for so long I had a pulled muscle in my back and an exposed nerve in my esophagus. I had multiple x-rays, 2 trips to a doctor and another trip to a specialist. I’ve been on steroids, 2 types of inhalers and antibiotics. I’ve taken natural immune boosters, marshmallow pills (seriously, who knew that was a thing?!) and more just to get better. Through all that, I worked. I wrote #Rev, I wrote Maneater (releasing March 25th) and I wrote and submitted a short story for the Fifty Shades of Pink anthology (which benefits breast cancer). I’ve been making teasers, sending out newsletters and interacting with my fans in my fan club (link to join is above in this post). I TRULY care about you guys and my books. Forgetting about this morning’s post was a mistake, an accident and again, I apologize.
All that being said here is the Up to date and final information on #REV:
RELEASE DATE: APRIL 1st (Note: IF I get the book back early I will release it ASAP and I will post all over the place including this website so you know its available). There is no pre-order.
The release blitz for #Rev will be on April 1st. It is hosted by Xpresso Reads. I am giving away a KINDLE FIRE. I know me giving away a kindle doesn’t make up for the later release, but its still nice, eh? You will be able to enter at any of the blogs hosting the release blitz AND HERE on this site. If you are a blogger (or page owner) and want to be part of the blitz sign up HERE
I honestly hope that you will still pick up #Rev when it releases. I hope my error with the post this morning and the fact I had to push the release does not make you write off #Rev. Trent and Drew are my favorite. #Junkie and #Rev are my favorite books I’ve done (I love all my books, and YES I love me some Romeo, he’s just right below Trent now). Trent and Drew were a total surprise to me, but I love them so much. I hope you will read #Rev and support our boys.
Since today was the original release date I will post some new teasers below. I will also give you a little info on some frequently asked questions (FAQ) i’ve been getting.
Does #Rev have a cliffhanger? No. It does not. #Rev has a happily ever after.
Is this the last book in the GearShark series? No. I’m planning on 2 more books in the GearShark series. Trent and Drew’s books are complete with #Rev. The next book in the GS series is about Lorhaven. I’m aiming to have that out this summer. I will announce more on it when I can.
When will #Junkie (and #Rev) be on audio? I’m getting lots of requests for this. I have reached out to Tantor Media – the company who produced the Hashtag Series in audio to see if they are interested in GearShark. If they decline I will have them produced on my own because I know you guys really want this. It will be a few months, so I will keep you updated. Audio production takes time because we have to get narrators, have it read, produced, etc. I am working on it.
What are you working on now? Right now I am gearing up for #Rev’s release (as early as I can. No later than April 1) and Maneater – an 80’s novella releases March 25th. Maneater is done, its up for preorder and its already submitted to all vendors. It will be out the 25th. You can get all the info and preorder links on Maneater here. I am also currently writing a Take It Off novel. There has been a lot of request for another one. I got an idea so I’m working on that write now. When its done I will write Lorhaven’s book. the Take It Off book is a standalone. I’ll have more info on that in the coming weeks.
When is your next book signing? I will be in Roanoke, Virginia on April 2. Roanoke Author Invasion
After that I will be in Nashville, TN at Utopiacon. I will be speaking on several panels, and I have a table there for the entire event and will selling and signing books. I will lots of free swag too (including Pit Passes from Trent and Drew!) Utopiacon is June 22-26th. Utopiacon
I will be other places this summer and fall. For a full list of my events GO HERE
