It’s a beautiful day for a cover reveal!
I have finished the blurb and the tagline (which stayed just like it was in the last blog *laughs*) and everything is ready for release on Wednesday!
A Year in the Life of S. Claus will be out TOMORROW!
Here is the blurb:
What if Santa wasn’t a small, fat man in a bright red suit? What if he were really a magic man, a savvy businessman, a car enthusiast and some time vigilante?
Santa’s real name is Ari Lykke and he is a Norwegian given the job of Santa Claus by the Gods many centuries ago. Since then, he’s built the business into a worldwide conglomerate, helped thousands achieve their dreams, and rescued millions from the clutches of Darkness. Now, he has a murder to solve, corporate espionage to prevent and one tiny old woman to save.
And the tagline:
Santa: magic man, businessman, car collector, and vigilante. The real story behind the myth.
What do you think? Catchy, right?
I like them. I just hope they’re as effective as I’d like them to be. 😀
The other thing about the book is that most of the proceeds will be going to our 2019 MS Ride.
We have named our team The Longshots. *chuckles* I am kind of a longshot to make this run from Grand Bend, Ontario to London and back again. It’s a two day ride but dang, it’s a 150 km (93 miles, +/- a few yards) ride. That’s a LOT of my ass in the saddle and feet on the pedals.
Thank the Gods for Mike. *smiles* He knows how to keep me going.
Here is where you can keep up with me. And here is where you can keep up with the team, although I haven’t done anything with it yet; I need Mike to register. Our team goal is $3,000. I will be donating $300 (a little at a time, I’ve got 50 in so far) and the proceeds of A Year in the Life of S. Claus, for as long as I’m fundraising.
We will be doing other things to fundraise:
- a bake sale at IYSAE. Which you can attend, if you live in London, Ontario. I will have cupcakes and cookies. I haven’t yet decided which will be gluten free. I will probably do a poll among the attending authors.
- the standard “pestering” of friends, relatives, work ‘friends’
- buck-a-kilometer training sessions (which will be tracked/proven via the Cyclometer app I have on my phone)
- Maybe we’ll find a way to do a silent auction or something.
We’ll get there with the fundraising and then some, I know it. AND I WILL RIDE. I will do every single kilometer by my own power (and then not be able to walk until Wednesday *laughs*).
But now, it’s time for what you’re all waiting for:
I think it’s beautiful, sleek, and just the right touch. I didn’t want Christmas or overt Santa material. I wanted subtly and class. And I think I achieved that. The back is going to be pale gold with black lettering.
Tell me, what do you think?
I am going to get to work publishing! Have a great day, everyone.
