Happy First Anniversary... (And a Thank You!)


May 24 marks the 1 year anniversary for  THE DESCENDANT.  It was one year ago today that The Descendant was officially published on Amazon!

I really can’t believe how fast a year has gone by.  My mom always told me that the older you are, the faster time goes, and boy, is she right!

What a difference a year makes.   The Descendant  was published in 2012 without a lot of fanfare.  I remember signing off on the paperback proof and being told that it would take 5-7 days until it was officially published.  I stalked Amazon by searching under the book’s title, not realizing that it would be buried under a sea of other books with the same title.  And it never dawned on me to search under my name (can you say, duh, Kelley?!?).  Impatiently waiting a few days, I finally reached out to Amazon asking on the status. I magine my surprise when I learned that not soon after signing off on the proof, the book was available!

To make up for that uneventful book launch, I’ve embarked on an anniversary blog tour. The tour started on May 20th and ends on May 26th.  I’ve included the tour schedule below. Stop by the various tour stops to learn some fun things about me including my timeline for writing (and re-writing) my first book, my favorite margarita recipe, an item on my bucket list, the latest reviews, and so much more.  PLUS, there is a giveaway! Enter for your chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card & signed paperback, or an ebook, koozie, sticker and more!

An anniversary isn’t just a time to celebrate my book’s publication. It’s also a time for me to reflect on those that have made this journey possible.  So  THANK YOU  to all of you for your support – by buying & reading  The Descendant, posting reviews (which are invaluable to any author), telling others about the book, and so much more.

So cheers to all of you and here’s looking forward to the next year, which will include the publication of  THE SEARCH, Book 2 in The Descendant Vampire Series.
