Celebrating Some Not-So-Small Things...

...And by 'things', I really mean 'people.'

This week, as I'm sure you all know by now, was the cover reveal event for my debut novel, Effigy.

It does exist!

First up I'd like to acknowledge those people posting today:


And next, I want to give another shout-out—one million shout-outs, even—to everyone else who participated this week:

So to everyone who participated in the reveal, and to everyone who took the time to check out the cover and comment on it, I say this to you:

This was my first cover reveal, so I'm not entirely sure how to measure the success of this event, but I feel like it went very well. And all of that is because of the awesomeness that is all of you. 

Thank you again.

Now I'm going to go away now and stop bothering you. Enjoy your weekend, everyone. I'll see you on Monday.

  8. I'm a little late to the party (since it started on Monday), but I must say that's a fantastic cover. I guarantee you'll gain plenty of readers just because of it. (And, of course, you'll keep them around because of the writing...)

    I was already looking forward to reading it, but now I'm looking forward to owning it, too. (Translation: it's gonna look good on the bookshelf.)

  22. Greetings human, M.J.,

    On behalf of my human friend, Gary, I have continued to follow around and I reckon that you are going to do very well with your book. Your enchanting cover reveal reminds me of the wee folks I live with in the magical garden.

    Delighted to note so many humans joined in the festivities.

    In magic,

    Geoffrey :)
