A large, rather important announcement

So I haven’t posted in a while, but I have two very good reasons – one, I was in Tennessee (yes, I have pictures of the gorgeous place, but I haven’t uploaded them yet) and two, the day we came home, I was felled by the flu. I’m recovering now, but it was sheer misery for about two days, and it’s gotten to where it’s only 1/4th misery.


A lot of interesting things have happened concerning my up-and-coming novel Monster. Next month, you will be able to hold an actual copy of the novel in your hands. I’m going to self-publish, and it will be available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other stores. I had a GORGEOUS cover designed for me by my friend Jessica, and I can’t wait to show you guys an actual copy. I have to order a proof copy first and make sure there are no mistakes, but – it’s coming. *deep breath*

And here’s where you guys come in. A lot of you have said you’d be willing to help spread the word when it came time for Monster to be published, and peoples – it’s time. If you’d be willing to host me on your blog, mention Monster to friends and family,  get the word out however you can, please either email me (the-shieldmaiden(at)hotmail(d0t)com) or say so in a comment.

If you’ve already READ Monster and would be willing to give me a short, positive review for the front of the book, that would be FANTASTIC.  Please let me know if you’re willing to help spread the word.  I love you, Awesomes. Rock on! 😉

  1. Aww, sorry you got the flu! 😛

    😀 *Ish so excited about Monster* I’m going to be letting my friends and family know and running about the internet world with links to your book and blog when the time comes. ^_^

  2. Oh my gosh!!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!! 😀 You can definitely do a guest post on my blog! Unfortunately, Writing Bravely probably won’t be updated anymore… At least until Caelan can get back on. But CONGRATS!!! 😀

  3. I’d love to spread the news about your book on my blog! I’m not sure what age group your book is targeting, so I think I’ll read it before I sponsor it though. Can’t wait!

  4. Aww, so sorry you’re not feeling well. 😦 *hugs* Feel better!

    O_O WOW. Yay Mirri!! I’ll do what I can to help! 😀 What age-range are you marketing it to? I can try to write a review of some sort…

    Have you thought of mentioning it to our WWYA critique group? They might be willing to help. 🙂

  5. Reblogged this on Of a Writerly Sort and commented:
    Ladies and gentlemen, I’m doing my part in spreading the word! A super awesome friend of mine, Mirriam from Thoughts of a Shieldmaiden, is publishing her novel, MONSTER! I haven’t read the whole thing yet, because I’m a horrible friend, but what I have read is more polished and interesting than a good amount of books I get from the library. MONSTER is coming out next month and I’m SUPER EXCITED!

  6. Eek, that’s so exciting! Monster was AMAZING, and I’m so glad that this is happening for you! Hopefully I’ll be able to get myself a copy. It’s so amazing that Monster has gone where it has– I remember beta-ing it and waiting anxiously for the next chapter.

Got something to say?
