Quotes, etc.

I’ve been lucky enough to get a couple of fabulous quotes from fabulous authors for DEMON PRINCESS: REIGN OR SHINE.

Here. Let me show you them.

“Michelle Rowen has created a smart and funny heroine and put her in a world of demons, magic, and sexy guys! This is a series I definitely want to keep reading.”Richelle Mead, New York Times bestselling author of Shadow Kiss

“Sassy and smart, engrossing and exhilarating! Rowen’s take of forbidden love and staying true to one’s self (even if you have horns) will have readers screaming for more.”Heather Brewer, author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod

I’ve been doing some mild brainstorming for a new book I want to outline while I’m in between contracted books (I never want to be completely out of contract again if I can help it, and planning ahead is the only way to go). But I hit a major creative wall during the last week and took some time to analyze why that was. I realized I was on the wrong path. I have since adjusted. I have to learn to trust my gut — that is a major theme in my books, after all. Trust your gut. If an idea sounds good but feels wrong, it probably isn’t something I want to spend months of my life on. And if an idea or a genre fills me with happiness at the idea of writing it, then that’s a good sign that it’s the right path. So there ya go. Darkness and mega angst tabled. Humor and entertaining lightness on board. So be it.

In 2009: Fun is in. Misery is out.

And I’ve received 3/4 of my beta reads back on LIVING IN EDEN and the general consensus is that it doesn’t suck. Which is a relief. Other than a few surface changes, this puppy is good to go.

    I’ve been wondering, so what do you do with those quotes? Other than putting them up on your blog. I take it you forward them to your editor who can get them put in your books? But what else can you do with them?

    They go on the front and back of my cover. They are used in the sales package to give distributors and buyers a sense of what the book’s like. It creates buzz. And if fans of the above authors see the quote they might be more inclined to pick mine up. Quotes are invaluable and I’ve been very lucky to get some really good ones. :)

    You’ve gotten some great quotes – but they’re all well-deserved.

    And thanks for the info, Michelle, I’d often wondered.
