The Princess & I: Cover Reveal and Blog Tour Announcement

Guys. I'm here. I'm here on this wonderful Valentine's Day to give you the VERY FIRST GLIMPSE at the gorgeous cover Alea Harper designed for my book "The Princess & I".

But not yet. }:)

(Forgive my evil author chuckle...)

Make SURE you visit these other delightful blogs who graciously participated in my cover reveal. (Including a few of my brave editors and my cover designer!!! :D)

Just kidding. I am going to. ;) Ready for some fabulousness? Good. You're about to be blown away by some. ;P

I know, I know. *sighs* Isn't it BEAUTIFUL? Alea Harper outdid herself. It was so much fun working with her and to all you fellow authors out there, I HIGHLY recommend her work. :)
I had a little bit of trouble getting the right wrap-around design on Lulu, but she re-worked and re-worked the size until it went through. No extra blood, sweat, or tears from my end. (Ok, so maybe some...but not enough to mention.) I never felt so calm hahahahahahahaha no, I'm not calm. Not at all. I'm totally freaking out and ready for my book to be published. No worries, no concerns, no obsessing over small details. She took care of everything for me. :) It was AMAZING.

Before I go on with the rest of the cover reveal, I have a confession to make: I am terrible at writing synopses for books. Especially my own stories. So, hopefully the one below that I created for "The Princess & I" makes SOME sort of sense to those of you who don't already know what it's about. xD Please let me know in the comments what you think of it. I'm trying to get better at that sort of thing since I'll be having to do it more as an author. ;) (Probably should have started getting better at synopses sooner? :P #procrastinatorforever)

But now, without further ado, I give you the synopsis of my beloved story, "The Princess & I":

About the Book:
Megan is content with her life, despite her parents' death and her brother Malcolm's job that keeps him busy at the King's castle. But when she is offered the position as Princess Christine's lady-in-waiting, Megan is glad of the change in scenery and accepts it with the hope that she can spend more time with her brother. The promise from Malcolm of lessons in swordsmanship only adds to her enthusiasm.

However, helping keep an eye on the emotional and excitable young lady proves to be much harder than becoming her friend. As rumors of war circulate the castle, Megan strives to encourage her new friend even as she tries to settle the doubts and fears in her own heart when her responsibility in protecting the Princess is put to the test. Follow the unwanted adventure which serves to teach her that loyal friendship, true love, and God's amazing grace will always triumph over revenge, greed, and hate.

Also, it is SO weird writing about yourself in third person. Anyone else with me on that? #authorproblems
But, I think I pulled it off. Maybe. Read the following bio at your own risk. ;)

About the Author:
Rebekah grew up surrounded by family members who appreciated and read good literature. First, she fell in love with the stories her parents read aloud to her from The Bible and books like The Chronicles of Narnia, Great Expectations, The Hobbit, and Anne of Green Gables. After learning to read on her own, she discovered other fantastic books which helped to build her ever growing imagination.

She completed her first written work at the tender age of eight and now uses it to humble herself whenever the need arises. The story 

did serve to show her that God had given her a desire to write, however, and from that moment on 
Rebekah has never looked back or regretted picking up her pencil and becoming an author.

This eighteen-year-old homeschool graduate lives in rainy Western Washington and is currently working on receiving her BA in
 English in order to further her passion for creating worlds on paper.

Now, I have some exciting news. Ready? ;)

My book is being released on March 3rd, 2017 along with Jesseca's book "A Question of Honor". We both thought it would be fun to be book-release buddies. :)

I am going to be hosting a blog tour from February 27th through March 3rd (RELEASE DAY!!!), so if you'd be interested in participating in THAT, click on the following link:

I will be posting some "behind-the-scenes" glimpses of different parts of the writing process that helped make my book into what it is now including:

Music that inspired specific scenes
Pinterest inspiration
And a conversation with a character (vote below in the comments which character you want me to interview)
Plus a few surprises I have up my sleeve. B-)

So in other words, you don't want to miss out on this blog tour. Trust me. Until then, I bid you all adieu.
