There’s More Where That Came From

Friday, November 8, 2019. That is the date the current edition of DUALITY will be removed from Amazon in both Kindle and paperback formats to make way for the updated second edition to be released on Sunday, November 10, 2019. The second edition will have a number of cosmetic/formatting changes on the outside and inside of the book; and, though I am hoping that VITAE will also be released on the same day, I am…

Great Storms That Begin Small

I have spent the last month or so doing my best to get my life right. I don’t mean that on any dramatic, over-the-top, monumental scale. I only mean in terms of writing, working on my “brand,” and finalizing plans for future projects. It is a lot. That is definitely not an over-exaggeration; I actually do have a lot on my plate. And, it’s fantastic! That is not a complaint at all. I am absolutely…

More to Come!

One year ago, Always Ametra was launched. I realized that it was time to write in my own voice and under my own name, and though I wasn’t sure how long of a journey this would be, I still wanted to follow through. Since then, SO many wonderful things have happened. I’ll share them all as the time comes, but I’m glad to focus on a couple of them for now. My debut novel, Duality, is…

Character Profiles

I’ve decided to do something new and fun. Because I had so much fun crafting the book trailer for Duality, I decided to take it a step further with the creation of character profile videos. These will be spoiler-free in that, while giving a bit of insight into the character, will not give away any of the plot. I’m also only going to do two of them – maybe three. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Duality

She crouched, shivering as she forced her body deep inside the crowded closet. Wiping the tears from her cheeks, she couldn’t help shuddering as her fingertips grazed the clots of blood and flesh that she’d been sprayed with. Gritting her teeth, she fought to maintain control though she felt the bile rising as her stomach churned. An ear-splitting scream mingled with the guttural gurgles that resembled mirthful cackling. She heard panting and the indelicate, wet…

Very Special Announcement

A mistake, albeit it one that I’ve come to appreciate and squeal over for the last hour or so, has caused the paperback version of Duality to be made available on Amazon ahead of the November 10 publication date. I cannot change this and I’ve decided that I wouldn’t if I could. I will instead take it, run with it, scream over it (flailing hands, included), and share the news! The Kindle version is available…

Huzzah!

Last night, I completed the upload of Duality to Amazon – in both Kindle as well as paperback format! The Kindle version was approved almost immediately. The paperback version, however, is still in review and I expect it to be approved at any time. Once both are up and showing as available for preorder, I’ll be sure to make an announcement. For now… I am exhausted, amazed, excited, grateful, and very hyper. Once I’ve recovered,…

What Did I Do Differently?

As we get closer to the release date for Duality on 11/10, I’ve been dealing with a lot of thoughts and feelings associated with the publication of my first novel. I’ve been writing since I was 13 years old. Along the way, I’ve had countless dreams of what it would be like to see my name featured on the cover of a book. I’ve been in touch with publishing companies – both traditional and vanity…

Cleared For Landing

After the release date for Duality was announced and the book trailer was released, I took some much-needed time off to relax and regroup. It felt as though a huge weight was removed and I could have collapsed into a gooey pile of happiness. Now that I’ve had that break, however, it’s time to get back to work. I initially planned to write a lengthy and involved post on what the editing process was like…

And All To Do Again!

The response to both the announcement of the release date for Duality as well as to the book trailer has been phenomenal. I am so grateful for the support and encouragement that I’ve received, for the leads on helpful resources that I can utilize moving forward, and to those who have kindly volunteered to assist in beta reading the next as well as future novels. I have a vacation coming up, but it’ll be a working…
