I’m celebrating two things today.  First and foremost, the launch of my new book UnEarthed.  This book is YA sci-fi, so something completely different from my usual style but also the first genre I ever really, truly loved as a reader.

UnEarthed is also a bit of an experiment, as my publisher and I agreed to bring it out as an ebook first, which is dead opposite to what most publishers do.  Also, just this time, I kept the ebook rights myself, which means I can do whatever I want with the book, price it the way I wish, market it the way I like and do whatever promotional giveaways take my fancy 🙂 (Hold that thought).

My keeping the rights also meant that the editing, formatting, cover art and publishing process were entirely my responsibility.  That’s a big deal when you’ve never done it before.  Usually, if anything at all goes wrong, it’s not my problem; the book stopped being ‘mine’ when I signed the contract with the publisher.

Now, the book is mine.  I love it.  I’m proud of it.  I hope you’ll like it too.

The second thing I’m celebrating today, is the fact that I have five hundred Tweeps.  That’s right, five hundred people are following me on Twitter.  That may not seem like a lot, but geeze, considering I never thought I would ever, ever even look at a Twitter page, that’s quite a big deal.  At the moment, I’m learning a new thing nearly every second.  It’s tiring, but amazing fun.

In order to celebrate this supremely fun moment in my life, I’ve decided to host a giveaway.  I’m giving away free copies of my book UnEarthed over at Smashwords, to the first five people to leave a comment about something new (and hopefully fun) they’ve learned lately.  I can’t wait to hear what you’re up to!
