{June 24, 2009}   Stuff

OK, the blog needs more work, and I’m still trying to figure it all out, but I thought I better leave a new post today if only to say what I’ve been working on!

I’m getting ready for a new release.  Her Last is being released on July 7th in both e-format and print.  I’m really excited about this because it’s with a new publisher.  Eternal Press.  These folks are so easy to work with.  Plus, their stable of authors are very family oriented in that everyone helps/encourages everyone else.  I’m looking forward to the launch party Eternal Press hosts every month for their new releases.  For a peek at the cover art and the book’s blurb, just go to the New Releases page here on this blog.

I’m new to Twitter, too.  The account has been created, but I’ve not jumped in there and started yet.  I wanted to get this blog squared away and going before I tackled another project!

Make sure you check out the Already On The Shelf page.  All three of my current books–published by Asylett Press–are displayed there.  The covers are amazing!  My hubby Steve designed them and he’s incredibly talented!  Each book title is linked to the book’s page on the publisher’s website.  Take a gander.  Never know…one might just be the one you’re looking for!  😛

Thanks to everyone who stopped by in the past couple days.  I really appreciate you all doing that and freely offering your feedback/comments/suggestions!

Have a great evening!  😛

{June 22, 2009}   Here I am…now what?

So, I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a blog or not…I decided to jump in with both, uhm, hands! I’m not sure I’m set yet on the appearance, but I figured it was a place to start.

I’m Valerie J. Patterson and I’m an author. Currently, I have three novels on the market. If you click on the Already on the shelf page, you’ll be transported to a page showcasing those books and where they can be purchased. Hopefully–if I can pull it all together–I’ll add an excerpt and a review or two for each book.

Click on New Releases to see what’s coming up, take a gander at new cover art, and read an excerpt.

I figure the more I get the hang of this, the better at the whole designing thing I’ll be and I can add pages as I need them.

So, if you’ve made it this far, I hope you’ll stick around and come back. Maybe lead a few others here with you!

Don’t forget to leave a comment when the mood strikes you. I’d love to hear from you!
