I'm so inspired by this once-imaginary-vision-in-my-head-now-made-manifest, that on this first day of January 2016 I'm dreaming even bigger!
In 2015 I was lucky enough to get incredible shout outs from the LA Times, USA Today & the amazing Arriviste, along with other lovely bloggers kind enough to share their experience of TRUST with their readers. Last week, a teen reader shared she had been reading TRUST with the flashlight on her phone! Every writer's dream is to be flashlight worthy...Woohoo!
So on this first day of this new year, I just found out that TRUST made USAToday.com's Must Read Romance list for 2015 (http://happyeverafter.usatoday.com/2016/01/01/must-read-romances-2015-jessie-potts/) I also know that Barnes & Noble will be carrying my book nation wide in February. Canadian & Australian bookstore chains are considering my book for their shelves & I'm believing it's going to happen. TRUST is going International!
I'm also going to visit high schools in California to introduce myself & TRUST to new readers. Books signing are happening & readers will come to share their reading experiences with me so that we can take pictures together holding TRUST! The paperback version will arrive in early fall to reach even more people. I'm dreaming that these events that have been set in motion will lead to even more outstanding opportunities!
But the most thrilling part of 2016 will be that I'm going to finish Book Two of Anna's journey! I'm halfway through & it's already bigger & better. Without too many spoilers, I can reveal to you all what I recently told a fabulous mom who was sharing TRUST with her daughter this Christmas (she finished it before her daughter & wanted to know what was going to happen next!! *insert deliciously thrilled giggle*).
Book 2 has more of everything:
High stakes action from new Guardian creatures I'm excited for you to meet.
Fabulously romantic dates-on-the-run with Cax.
More otherworldly Libraries to visit.
A big reveal about Inanna.
Even crazier unexpected curve balls from Kali.
Truths emerging about Anna's past as well as her future destiny...
So stay tuned for more exciting news & reveals about my Between Lions Series by following me at goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/JodiBakerBooks!
I'm sending you all my sincerest gratitude for helping me make my dreams a reality this year. Thank you for taking the time to meet Anna!
Wishing you all a sweet '16 filled with gigantic dreams made manifest!
The Doors are unlocked. All we have to do is walk through & TRUST. :)
