Somewhere in a world we’ve never even seen (or I don’t know, maybe even New York), Peter Pan and all his friends are throwing a huge party. I’m sure there’s pizza involved. Mulan’s probably doing party tricks with her sword. Snow White’s probably trying to be the healthy one, so hopefully one of the seven dwarves are following her around and slapping the apples out of her hand before she can bite them.
MY FRIENDS! The Carver is officially in the world today! You can finally hold the book in your hands and get to know these characters as friends of your own. As a heads up, I will probably be running on caffeine and sheer adrenaline all the way through Sunday. This is the only “first release” I’m ever going to have as an author, so I want to remember this amazing feeling. I want to preserve these emotions in a jar and keep that jar by my bed for the rest of my days. It’s hard to describe the emotions, but the jar would probably look ethereal and fun, with some shiny cloudy smoky stuff swirling around inside.
I want you to know that this is a time I will never forget. I will always remember and appreciate that Blaze Publishing offered me the life of a story spinner, and The Carver will always hold a special place in my heart as the first adventure we got to share together. I hope you enjoy this little road trip I planned for you. It’s just the beginning of a much larger journey, and I don’t know about you, but I’m in it for the long haul!
Ultimately, I could ramble on forever, but Pietro and Enzo are about to jump in the car and hit the road, and I don’t want you to miss the trip. We’re partying on Facebook all day long. If you check out the Twitterverse, I’ve seen a few bloggers doing some really fun things already… gifs, playlists, excerpts, and don’t even get me started on that interview with Ryan Hill.
Enjoy The Carver, everyone, and make a wish!
