Sorry, Pause

Hey y’all!

 

I’m so thankful for all of the support, interest, and downloads of 51 LOVE. I truly feel honored to even have my work be read by anyone at all, and it gives me such a great vote of confidence in my pursuits to provide great stories for readers.

Because of this vote of confidence, I have decided to postpone my self-publishing of FADE AWAY, in an effort to make further additions and edits to its material, and publish at a later date.

 

I will still be awarding all the book winners of my giveaways with current ARC’s; however, I will not be self-publishing FADE AWAY on its currently schedule date of release of March 22nd, 2017.

 

I do apologize for the wait, but I can assure you that I am committed to providing a product which will be thoroughly invested in. Again, thank you for all of your support : )

 

update: CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS OF THE FADE AWAY GIVEAWAYS!

51 Love

51 Love

($0.99/$11.99) Available at:

Amazon Print ♦ Kindle ♦ B&N  ♦  iBookstore ♦ Kobo ♦ Baker & Taylor’s ♦ Smashwords

Release date [71,030 words]: January 18th, 2017 (at all major retailers including Amazon print and Kindle)

This story is about Abram, a hopeless romantic who enrolls into college and begins leaving love notes for the girl, Jec, who works at the front desk of his student apartments. About why they know each other when neither have even met. That’s right, she had seen his face only two weeks earlier, when he tossed his book bag in the middle of the street, holding up traffic like a mad homeless man. But what she doesn’t know is that just before he came to grab his keys to move in, the handsome albeit strange eyes and the person they belong to had just been released from the county jail.

The jail cell talk without any cameras around to record make his last 51 minutes in the pen with a sketchy bunkmate a do or die conversation that may explain why he became homeless, why he wrote the love letters in the first place, and if both were random at all.

BIG dates coming<3

Hey y’all,

Happy new years!

I’ve been working on a lot of stuff at the same time and so it’s time to update everybody on what’s going on.

Of course, the 51 LOVE rafflecopter is still going and the time is running out! The Goodreads giveaway for 51 LOVE is also still open and time is ticking. What would you do with 51 minutes left? Hmmm….

Also, there are some BIG dates coming up.

VIDEO TRAILER REVEAL FOR 51 LOVE

First, on January 9th, 2017, I’m so thankful that I can say the wonderful blog Enchanted Book Promotions has organized a video trailer reveal for 51 LOVE! I feel so anxious about this release because so many people have worked hard to help me put together a plan for getting the word out. I’m just humbled by all the interests and hope it is simply an enjoyable work of art. The book release of 51 LOVE is January 18th, 2017.

COVER REVEAL FOR FADE AWAY

Next, on January 11th, 2017, the fantastic YA Bound Book Tours has organized a cover reveal for my first Young Adult novel titled FADE AWAY. I’m so excited for this release too because it was such a joy to write. An epistolary style fiction of coming of age, it has all ‘the perks’ of a socially conscience story combined with the awkward humor that characterizes our lives as we traverse the new landscape of high school. Except, with more estrogen and diversity. Elizabeth, the main character in FADE AWAY and a deeply flawed young woman, is by far one of my favorite characters to have written about and you’ll see exactly why ; ) The book release of FADE AWAY is March 22nd, 2017.

With that, as time runs out on the above giveaways, there will be another rafflecopter and a Goodreads giveaway that will begin on January 11th for FADE AWAY! Yep, the fun never stops over here ; )

The BIG blog tours you can look forward to:

You are welcome to save these dates and join me! I’m very grateful that multiple blog tour organizers have committed to helping me spread the word about these two novels.

Stay tuned for more surprises and way, way more ; ) Thank you for stopping by this bumfuzzly page of LOVE.

-Jerm

1 month ‘Til, and free ebooks (literally) w/ the Goodreads challenge: )

Heeeeey y’all!

Are you ready like a yeti eating frozen spaghetti?! So am I!

newsletter_quotes_3d-book

First, I want to say that the cover reveal was a TREMENDOUS success and I had a ton of fun. I so LOVED the reactions. I’ve made some small tweaks to the cover to make sure it is sharp, no pun intended. Just kidding. Or…am I? *hehe| Here’s a closer look:

ringfield_corrected_cover_51-love

As you know and as a reminder, I’m already running a rafflecopter giveaway with some BIG prizes:

One Hubsan x4 Drone with Camera, One White Sapphire necklace in sterling silver by Kay Jewelers, one $100 Visa Gift Card, one $50 Amazon gift card, a personalized autographed print copy of 51 LOVE, and an ebook of 51 LOVE with multiple winners.

Two winners will receive a print copy with the Drone/Gift cards. And ***EIGHT more winners will be drawn to receive an ebook (Kindle) version of 51 LOVE.

I’m not going to lie though. The recipe of the cover looks so purdy (I really love peaches by the way)…but the dern Thunderclap is looking real weak at 16%, SO….fugg it.

fugg_it_pot-slammin

It’s time to spice some things up.

sprinkle_awesome

I want to sprinkle some fantastic sauce on it, and this is where helping spread the word helps MORE. I HAVE A CHALLENGE, and it’s not just any challenge. What’s better than free books? MORE free books : )

I’ve added a Goodreads Giveaway for 1 print copy of 51 LOVE which starts today. So yes, you will have chances to win prizes in both the rafflecopter as well as GR!… But this GR Giveaway is to double wammy the awesomeness of BOTH giveaways!

AND!… IT GETS BETTER THE MORE WE GO!

***Challenge #2:

If 51 LOVE hits 500 “to read” adds, I will add 1 free ebook every 25 “to read” adds from there on.

***Challenge #3:

If we hit 100% for the Thunderclap, I’ll add 5 more free ebooks in the rafflecopter.

Adding your “to read” is an entry in the 51 LOVE rafflecopter, and I hope you join the rafflecopter to claim your chance to win BIG too!

(update) Here is where we are at right now on Goodreads:   115 people (10 total free ebooks!)

Here is where we are at right now on Thunderclap: 18%

And don’t forget about the THUNDERCLAP!

Thunderclap is a really cool social crowd-speaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. 

My goal is to get 100 people to agree to share the below linked message about my book by January 17th, 2017. When I hit 100 (update: we’re at 18%), on Jan. 17th, that message will be blasted out to all those who agreed to share, spreading my message even farther and wider than I could ever imagine.

It’s SUPER easy to participate- click THIS LINK  and then click “support with Facebook” or “support with Twitter” and voila! That’s it.

Oh, and my cover was revealed today! Isn’t it purdy?

Man! Candy

Hi yall!

There is candy all over the place! And by candy, I don’t just mean Jec’s new mysterious boo thing from the streets. I mean, really ladies, what if somebody like this cleaned up off the streets and starting leaving you love letters at the front desk after he worked out in the gym next door? bodybuilder-331670_1280 Yea, you’d remind him, “excuse me-sir, the uh, the lobby coffee is free for students” just to get another look wouldn’t you? I thought so.

And fellas, I haven’t forgotten about you. When you look next to the definition of beautiful in the dictionary, it just says ‘Jec’. portrait-1462942_1920

But I mean prizes too!

The awesome Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a cover reveal and blog tour for 51 LOVE! I’ve got so much love for the women over there and the hard work they are putting in to help me get the word out about my book. As you can probably see, I’m a bit behind the 8 ball when it comes to social media, but it’s a work in progress ; )

I’m getting a little anxious about it all as the time gets closer. After constantly reviewing the manuscript (what must be a gazillion times), this is the time when I start wiping my forehead for sweat that isn’t even there and conclude I need a nice big ol’ bowl of cotton candy flavored (my favorite) ice cream. Yum! There’s nothing like feel good food.

Hopefully, this abandoned blog won’t be so desolate for long : )

But I can officially say that 51 LOVE’s cover will be revealed MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21st 2016 on numerous blogs organized by Goddess Fish Promotions!

And just like me eating the awesomeness cotton candy flavored ice cream when I get nervous, I want to reward my anxiety by giving out prizes! So, I will be running a rafflecopter starting Nov. 21st on my blog for, drumroll please…

One Hubsan x4 Drone with Camera, one White Sapphire necklace in sterling silver by Kay Jewelers, one $100 Visa Gift Card, one $50 Amazon gift card, a personalized autographed print copy of 51 LOVE, and an ebook of 51 LOVE with multiple winners!

The first BIG winner drawn in the rafflecopter will win the drone, the White Sapphire necklace in sterling silver by Kay Jewelers, the $100 Visa gift card, and an autographed print copy of 51 LOVE. The second winner drawn will win the $50 Amazon gift card and an autographed print copy of 51 LOVE. And eight more winners will be drawn to receive an ebook version of 51 LOVE. To be eligible for the first two prizes (drone, necklace, gift cards, and signed print copies), you must have a US mainland mailing address. Everyone with a valid email address is eligible for an ebook version of 51 LOVE. I will continue to draw winners from all entries until all prizes have been drawn.

Plus, I figured the prizes would be fun given the holiday season is right around the corner ; )

Introducing me! He who shall be named…

Hi yall!

My name is Jeremy. Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m an indie author and my first book, 51 LOVE releases January 18th, 2017. I made some changes to the original version which’s cover and title was “Oenomel”, in case you see that on Goodreads (I can’t remove it from Goodreads, so just know the actual book will be available as 51 LOVE).  I’ve just started writing recently, and 51 LOVE was such a joy to write because it just came to me. It’s about a young guy who meets and falls in love with a young girl, but only after he gets released from jail.

I wrote the first draft in about a month, and never expected to actually write it at all. Like I said, the scenes sort of just came to me all of a sudden while I was looking back through one of my journals. It has many of the things I love:

fish out of water — one of the main characters, Abram, enrolls in freshman classes to avoid being homeless anymore, and nobody knows why somebody so young and handsome was roaming the streets in such dirty clothes.

Romantic letters — the other main character, Jec, replies to the love letters Abram starts with her while everyone around them do not understand why Jec even pays him any attention, given that there are so many rumors going around town theorizing his history.

Steamy attraction — did I mention that underneath all the street filth, cleaned up and cleaned shaven, Abram is her man candy. Jec gets the hotty toddy for Mr. Trouble himself.

Tears that tell a past — Abram and Jec don’t know why they know each other when neither have even met, but their memories keep them coming back for more in this emotional thriller.

Suspense — The sting of young love may be an understatement, when the last 51 minutes of Abram’s time in jail before they met tells exactly why their courtship is not random at all.

I’d love for you to follow me here and on twitter/facebook! Leave a comment, and be on the lookout for 51 LOVE in mid-January.
