THE โ€œUNOFFICIAL,โ€ AWATS PR BOX ANNOUNCEMENT

So, after my disastrous book release of A War Amongst The Stars, I plan to eventually have a B&N release but make it bigger and better than my Amazon release. With that, Iโ€™m going to need some help hyping it up. Iโ€™d love to choose those who have already read and loved the book. Those who have already hyped it up is also a plus. Havenโ€™t decided how many Iโ€™ll give out but Iโ€™m thinking maybe 10-25. Iโ€™ll also be opening back up my Street Team. Street Team wonโ€™t get the PR Box but they will get something special. Basically, if youโ€™re already a fan of the book, Iโ€™d love to have you. Over the next month or so, Iโ€™ll be going through my tagged posts on IG and Booktok to find and ask if youโ€™d be interested in being one of my book PR influencers. For my Street Team, once all PR spots are filled, I will have a sign up form for everyone else interested in helping me re-hype up awats.

Gotta have read the book prior though. Iโ€™d hate for you to hype a book before reading it only to find out you hate hot aliens ๐Ÿ‘ฝ and tentacle play ๐Ÿ™

Stay tuned! More info to come!

If youโ€™re interested though, let me know!

AUTHOR UPDATE

In case you didnโ€™t noticeโ€ฆ Iโ€™ve been m.i.a. since my disastrous book release of A War Amongst The Stars.

I had been working two years straight on not just writing the story, but learning photoshop so that I could design the cover, the interior design. I created promo pics and videos. I marketed for a whole year across multiple platforms, all while trying to keep up a social media presence, emails, newsletter, blog, messages, manage multiple groups, send out ARCโ€™sโ€ฆ yeah you get it. Iโ€™ve been busy and then to have all that work just trashed when Amazon decided to cancel all my pre-orders which I have yet to gain backโ€ฆ well I fucking lost it. My exhausted mind blanked out and I walked away.

Tbh, I think Iโ€™m still exhausted and have yet to recover mentally but Iโ€™m trying. I started reading again and picked up painting and that seems to be helping me a little.

Basically, Iโ€™ve just been taking each day one at a time until Iโ€™m back to a good place mentally.

I had to stop responding to all dmโ€™s and emails. If you tried contacting me, Iโ€™m sorry I havenโ€™t responded back yet. You can blame it on my anxiety. I will get back to you eventually though.

I had so many amazing things planned for my book releaseโ€ฆ I hate that I didnโ€™t get to share it all with you. On the bright side, I do want to try it again with the Barnes and Noble book release of the PB and special HB edition. Thereโ€™s no release date yet but when the time comes, Iโ€™m going to treat it like an official release and make it HUGE!

I get a second chance and I just hope youโ€™ll be there to help me make it the biggest and best release ever.

With that, I have still been working on special things behind the scenes which I will be announcing soonish, so do check back! ๐Ÿ˜†

Thank you all for everything, especially to those who were there for me when all went to hell. Yโ€™all are the greatest mortals ever.

Iโ€™ll be back soon. ๐Ÿค

P.S. Thereโ€™s a link here https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/19AKPG3JWSF5V?ref_=wl_share to check out my Amazon TBR list. I canโ€™t decide which series to start next so take a look and let me know your faves!

AMAZON CANCELLED A WAR AMONGST THE STARS!

I do not even no where to beginโ€ฆ

The worst has happened yโ€™all.

After making some changes to my manuscript and re-uploading it on Sunday night, I woke up Monday morning to find out that Amazon had cancelled my book and all my pre-orders.

My book is blocked and they will not budge nor re-instate it or my pre-orders.

It took me a year to gather just over 1,000 pre-orders. 1,005 last time I checked and now they are just gone. I’ll never see them again.

I have been in literal tears, barely eating nor sleeping, trying everything in my power to get them to help me re-instate it all but they just wonโ€™t.

Instead, I’m just supposed to take the loss and re-do the entire setup and start from scratch.

Before, I had the ebook enrolled exclusively in Kindle Unlimited but after being forced to re-submit my book as a new ebook, I have decided to not select that option. By not selecting to enroll in KU, I will not be bound to Amazon for 90 days and instead will be allowed to publish the ebook wide to Barnes and Noble, Apple Books, Google Play, and Kobo (but those will come later.)

As for the paper and hardback, I am still working on getting those re-uploaded to Amazon under a “new book,” but they’re processing time takes up to 72 hours and I just submitted it last night. So, they may arrive a day or so after the 28th, that is IF they are even approved. FML.

It’s a mess right now and I know all this must be very frustrating but I can only do so much in a matter of a couple days. I ask of you all to please be patient with me while I figure this all out as everything has changed and I’m just trying to adjust as quickly as I can.

Right now, Amazon has approved and published the ebook as a “new book,” so it is now available to purchase. To make it fair, I kept the pre-order price of $4.99 and it will stay that price for two weeks ending on 10/13 where it will return to the normal sale price of $9.99.

I beg of you all, please order the ebook right away! Like right now. Please do not wait to order the ebook. With how many pre-orders I had before, I would have instantly became an Amazon Best Seller on release day.

I know I will not reach 1,005 orders in one day and maybe not even in one week, but with your help by spreading the word to all your friends, family, co-workers, and across social media, I might get close.

Please! If you are in any Facebook reader groups, Discord groups, Reddit, Tumblr, or on Twitter, Instagram, especially Booktok, please, please, please share the word!

I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. I have faith that everything will work out. It must.

Thank you all for all your support! I could not do this without you.

THANK YOU!!!

Now, pleaseโ€ฆORDER THE EBOOK RIGHT NOW AND HELP ME HIT THAT AMAZON BEST SELLER LIST!

A WAR AMONGST THE STARS Q&A!

Come join me on Saturday 8/6/22 ALL DAY LONG for an A War Amongst The Stars Instagram Story Q&A!

I’ll be answering all questions about my upcoming book, A War Amongst The Stars: A Star-Crossed Lovers Series: Book One, A Dark Epic Sci-Fi Fantasy Romance Novel.

Hope to see you there! โœจ

**Note: The only questions I cannot answer is the pre-order date for the paper and hardback and the date of official release. The temp date was posted a year in advance and set to Sept. 28th, but that date may change as I plan on surprising everyone and releasing it sometime before. The pre-order date for the paper and hardback will (fingers crossed) be available in August. The paper and hardback will also be available exclusively on Barnes and Noble and later will be released on Amazon.**

A MESSAGE FOR ANYONE WHO DARE TO READ

Thereโ€™s a deep, thought provoking message to uncover from this story. One that I hope all who read, understands. Redemption, forgiveness, these are the pivotal keys to every characterโ€™s arc and journey through this tragic series. As every character is beautifully flawed in their own individual way, you will find that no one is perfect, and thatโ€™s just how they are meant to be, imperfect, raw.

As human beings, we ourselves are the most imperfect creatures who make more mistakes than we can count. We raise our voices, ridicule, cheat, judge, say the wrong thing, take no actionโ€ฆthe list goes. We by all means, are not perfect. No, we are far from it and in the eyes of otherโ€™s, we may even be the villains ourselves.

โ€œWe are all villains in someone elseโ€™s eyes. So, before you cast judgement on me, I dare you to look into a mirror and ask yourself, who have you wronged?โ€

Do not despair, for we as society are not hopeless, nor are we doomed to be the villains forever. No, just like the characters you will meet, we too can change. We too can rise above our imperfections, choose to learn from our actions and educate ourselves so that we may never do wrong once more.

In todayโ€™s society, it has darkened into a witch hunt. Casting the first stone and eradicating anyone who dare make one mistake. Society does not want to see you redeemed. It wants to see you burn.

That is the message of this story. How the villains fight against the tyranny that demands to hold them back from becoming good.

So, I challenge you to go into this story with an open-minded perspective, and a sympathetic heart. For these flawed, villainous characters are more realistic than you may think, for they are you, and you are they, and so help them, they will do what they believe is right, whether that be good or bad in your eyesโ€ฆthey do not care, because their fight, will always be against, you. The ones who wish to see them fall, to see them suffer. To watch them burn.

AN AUTHOR’S NOTE REGARDING A WAR AMONGST THE STARS AND ITS DARK THEME

๏ผก๏ผต๏ผด๏ผจ๏ผฏ๏ผฒใ€€๏ผฎ๏ผฏ๏ผด๏ผฅ

Not often does a tale get told from the villainโ€™s perspective, nor are we blessed enough to hear of the origin story in which set them on the path to true darkness, but hereโ€ฆ we do.

Who is the genuine villain of this story you may ask? Well, I will leave that up to you to decide, for โ€œwe are all villains in someone elseโ€™s eyes,โ€ย and if you think not, then I dare you to “look into a mirror, and ask yourselfโ€ฆ Who have you wronged?

Things are not always as they seem. People are not always as they seem.

We all hide a darkness inside, and how we choose to cope with our trauma,

how we choose to heal, to express it, to explodeโ€ฆ

Well, isnโ€™t that the premise of this story?

โ€œYou can go into war blind, and risk being slaughtered, or you can go in observant, and do the slaughtering.โ€

โ€œTo be distracted, is to be blind.โ€

So, I advise you. Be careful who you trust. Be careful what you wish for, for the wrong star could be listening.

โ€œMagic always comes at a cost. A cost that in the end, is never worth the fulfillment.โ€

Now, a warning to the impressionable.

Take heed, as the advice you may hear throughout this narrative, might just be the villainโ€™s way of secretly manipulating you towards the villain you may unknowingly become.

After all, this is… a war amongst the stars, and with that comes bloodshed, betrayal, immoral ideologies, toxicity, sizzling, primal lust, hidden secrets, pain. Lots of pain. But do not fear. No matter what,

love will always prevail. โ€œHowever, necessary.โ€

May your path towards the light or dark be blessed by the stars themselves.

Happy wishing.

Iโ€™ll see you on the other side.

Good luck.
