The March Book Cover of the Month bracket has just wrapped up. This was a very tough bracket from my point of view. We had some heavily-supported authors and some tight races. We didn’t break a ton of records, but still had a solid month. We had a total of 2,808 votes. The last round had 190 votes. It was a pretty close contest, but someone has to win.

The March Book Cover of the Month is…

Have you read The Door Keeper? Did you like it? Are you curious about the sequel?

As most of you know, getting your book out there among the millions of other stories is difficult, but reviews help readers find what to read next.

So here’s what I’m going to do: If you review The Door Keeper on Amazon and email me, informing me that you have & would like to cash in for your reward, I’ll send you the Prologue and 1st chapter of the sequel!

And trust me…it gives you a good idea of what the sequel has in store for you.

So make sure you leave your review on Amazon then email me at steen@thedoorkeepertrilogy.com letting me know you’d like to see what’s next for Eden and Gabby.

And don’t worry if you haven’t bought the book or finished it yet, I will run this incentive for an extended period of time!

How far we’ve come!

Hello friends, this past week has been one of the most fun weeks of my life!

I wanted to just take a moment and reflect on just how far this story has come. The morning The Door Keeper released, my sister sent me this photo.

This was a copy of the first draft of The Door Keeper I gave to my Dad for his birthday. (I’m seriously glad I didn’t attempt to create the actual cover…) Lol

And here I am, now receiving pictures and texts from friends reading the book they bought on Amazon.!

I just wanted to take a moment with all of you and appreciate how far we’ve come. I hope that you all know that I realize this story is as much yours as it is mine.

I’ve heard many authors compare their books to their babies. It’s true in a sense. In a moment of inspiration, or creativity…something is conceived. (Insert middle school giggle here.) Then for months and months, it grows and develops into something more, something that can breath and move on it’s own accord. Then one day, before you are both truly ready, you have to shove it out into the world and are forced to let it go.

It’s also true that it takes a village to raise a baby, or in this case a book.

I want you all to know that you are my village. You are all my tribe. I credit you all for helping me mature this little thing, growing it up, and helping me release it into the great unknown. 🙂

Thank you for growing The Door Keeper with me. Any success of it, is success that you should and hopefully will, share with me.
