What Do Readers Think and #WIN!

Launching a new book is exciting and terrifying and always FUN!

The last time I went through this was June 30, 2014, with Mosaic, and I pretty much did it by myself. Haha!

This go-round I've teamed up with Inspired Kathy and YA Bound, two great services I've known since I released The Truth About Faking in Sept 2012. Basically, I love these guys!

If you missed it, Behind the Stars rolled out as a serialized novel on November 9. The first episode "Captive" (Ch. 1-5) is FREE on all platforms if you'd like a taste.

"Serialized" means the story is released in small chunks, like they used to do with novels in the old magazine days. Some readers dig the format, others don't. Regardless of which side you're on, ALL the "episodes" are out now, or you can get the complete novel by clicking here (link). 

Please follow the Tour, and you can WIN! What's up for grabs? Signed copies of Behind the Stars, "Captive" (Episode 1), SWAG!, or an Amazon Gift Card!

Merry Christmas - Behind the Stars is coming!

Merry Christmas, reader-friends!

I hope you're all enjoying this time with family and/or friends. I'm actually unplugged for the week to spend this time with my little brood. It's crazy and a little scary with a new release on the horizon, but it's important to me.

I'm sure y'all know my new book Behind the Stars releases in eBook format on Dec. 31. You can pre-order it now, and if you like print books, the paperback edition is out NOW! If you want it for Christmas, it's ready to give or get. (Links below)

The release publicity for the eBook was set for Dec. 31. I couldn't change that, so I decided to release the book in serialized version for anybody who wanted to start it right away.

It's been SO FUN seeing everyone's responses, seeing reader memes, etc. Here are a few of my FAVES from the serialized version...

 


Serialzied novels have a long history going all the way back to Charles Dickens and Alexandre Dumas (The Three Musketeers)! I LOVE how being indie allows me to play with different ways of novel delivery.

Anyway, I'm rambling. To wrap it up, I hope you all have a fantastic holiday. I hope you're getting everything you want. I'll be around. Hope to hear from you soon!

Here is all the info you need for Behind the Stars~

"WOW, where do I begin.... Leigh has done it again. This time she has written something that I can't even imagine what is going to happen. I am completely enthralled with this book." 
--Goodreads Review

"Light and suspenseful, keeping the reader unsure of what is real." 
--Somertime Book Blog 

"I was intrigued by the reference to LOST so I started this the day I received it... The action starts almost immediately to grab you and invest you in the story. I understand the LOST reference--we are as lost as the main character, Prentiss..."
--Goodreads Review

"An amazing series, and I definitely recommend reading them all. You will not be able to put these books down."
--Carver's Book Cravings

Behind the Stars - Preorder Links are LIVE!

Happy Monday, reader-friends!

I confess, it's a little surreal for me getting Behind the Stars into the world. 

I finished BTS Spring 2012 doing a "30-day Writing Challenge" with my buddy Janet Sumner Johnson, of the Hackey Sack Club.

I was a traditional author at the time, so I took it with me to the state SCBWI convention. I showed it to some editors who liked it very much, then it went to my literary agent along with The Truth About Faking and Rouge. 

Fast forward five months and I hit "publish" on my first indie book (The Truth About Faking) and everything changed.

Except Behind the Stars was still with my agent.

Eventually he gave up on it, and the book waited patiently in my virtual drawer through The Truth books, through the Dragonfly series... and my beta readers kept asking and asking when I was going to publish it.

Well, the time has come! And I think it's the right time.

Still, you can't just throw a book out into the world. It needs publicity and a proper launch. A cover reveal and all that.

The Cover Reveal is Sunday (Nov. 9), and the Official Release Party is Dec. 31, but in the meantime, I'm going to give you an early shot at it by serializing it.

Since the book is finished, here are all the pre-order links. If you'd like to start it November 9, here you go...
