THE RISING GOLD Pre-Order Campaign!

What's this? A real blog post? Indeed!

Special occasion because my third novel, The Rising Gold, will be out in just over a month! And as before, there are goodies for pre-orders!

If you pre-order The Rising Gold from any store in any format before 10/2/18 and have a U.S. mailing address (again, I'm sorry international friends), you will get:

  • Signed, very pretty bookplates for Beyond the Red, Into the Black and The Rising Gold (unless you only want one or two, in which case just let me know). The bookplates are different for each book and they are beautifulllll.

  • Beyond the Red, Into the Black and The Rising Gold bookmarks (again, unless you only want one or two, which is totally fine!). These are also very pretty if I do say so myself. 

So many things! I'm so psyched to get these goodies out to everyone and also share this book. It's hard to believe I'm actually done with this trilogy and I feel so honored to be able to share the full story with everyone. I hope you all love it as much as I do.

To make things easy for you, here is a sample of links you can pre-order The Rising Gold from:

Also! If you haven't read Beyond the Red yet, but are curious about the trilogy, that's cool! Beyond the Red's paperback is available for purchase and Into the Black's paperback releases on September 4th and there will be a sneak peek at The Rising Gold at the end of the paperback. You can get that in many places as well, such as:

So that about covers it! I hope you guise are as excited as I am, and I look forward to putting together pre-order goodies for everyone!

So I've pre-ordered, how do I get the goodies?

Glad you asked! Just e-mail your receipt and U.S. mailing address to avalonjaedra @ gmail on or before 10/1/18 at midnight EST. That's it!

Vlog: About Showing vs Telling

You asked, I answered! Today I'm talking about the common advice "show don't tell" and whether that *really* means you should absolutely never tell. (Spoiler: it doesn't.)
