That’s right, my friends: It’s release day for “Inspired”! And that means three things.
1 = The wait to snatch up a copy of your very own is over! The book is available via Amazon (sing hey for shiny paperbacks! And Kindle e-books, if that’s how you roll), Barnes & Noble, and Kobo!
2 = If you’d like to try your luck against that of the Irish (get it? ‘Cause it’s St. Patrick’s Day? Aaaaanyway…), you can now enter my giveaway to win one of seven sweet prizes: Either a bookmark complete with a charm inspired by one of the book’s characters, or a signed paperback copy of the novel itself!
3 = We’ve kicked off the “Inspired” blog tour! From here ‘til April 17th, I’ll be on blogs all over the place (thank you, gracious hosts!) talking about the novel, writing, characters, inspiration… and Robin Hood. Perhaps a disproportionate amount of Robin Hood.
And what, you ask, will good old Ever On Word be up to in the meantime?
In an effort to refrain from talking about absolutely nothing but “Inspired” for a month straight, I will dedicate Mondays to storytelling. I’ve got some old flash fiction pieces of mine that have been sitting around unused; now seems a fine time to share. ^.^
Thursdays will be recap days where I give a brief rundown on the last few blog stops made on the tour. (You can also keep abreast of the tour schedule by visiting my website.) But not only that, a couple of Thursdays (well, one of them’s a Wednesday) will also feature guest posts from fellow authors on blog tours of their own! Oh, and a cover reveal on a Tuesday. Stay tuned for all.
And Saturdays, of course, will still belong to Will Scarlet and his Interactive Theatre troupe, because anything else is not worth the fight. If it’s an author/character power struggle you want, then allow me to direct you to a literary adventure that launched just today, and which I hope very much you’ll enjoy…
For a muse like Lucianíel, one story’s end is another’s beginning.
In the wake of his author’s sudden death, Luc takes ownership of her surviving creations—four fantastical characters with tales yet to be told—saving them from unwritten lives crumbling around them and giving them a second chance at a literary future.
Luc finds that chance in the unsuspecting mind of Annabelle Iole Gray, a quirky teen with her head in the clouds, nose in a book, and imagination ripe for a brilliant muse’s inspiration.
Or so he hopes.
Neither Luc nor Annabelle, however, realize all they’ve undertaken. Even with a to-write list including accounts of a shape-shifting cat creature, gentle knight-in-training, vigilante skater girl, and a mystery boy smothering in unspoken fear, the most remarkable saga created between author and muse just may turn out to be one stranger than fiction.
INSPIRED — out now!!! 😀

DANIELLE!! I am so happy for you!! I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on this book o’ yours and tell everybody I know about it (will lose my festive Irish accent first, I promise). 🙂 HUGE congrats, m’dear.
THANK YOU, SAM! I’m so happy, too, oh my gosh, I’m so excited for you to read it! *gasps, puffs, hyperventilates, dies a little*
I. LOVE. THAT. PREMISE.
Totally asking my mom to buy me this.
So glad it appeals to you! I hope your mom sees reason. ;D
Good luck with that. I know the feeling. My book was published on Saturday, and I feel like someone who has just seen their child walk off unprotected into the world, and I worry about how they will get on. I hope you are successful, and I’m sure you will be.
Thank you — and congratulations yourself! It’s up to our little book darlings now. *teary smile*
I’m friends with a published novelist, wow! Congrats Danielle. Loving the book so far, and I’m positive that love will only grow larger as I continue 🙂
So, so, so pleased you’re enjoying it, Steven! THIS PLEASED! Only in a font twice as big, with balloons!
Congratulations, I can’t wait to read it! Perfect way to start off St. Patrick’s Day!
Aye ‘n’ sure it is! Happy to have you along for the release, Miranda dear!

Awww, thank you! And beyond that, my heart’s a wordless mushy mess, so we’ll leave it at just the aww-ing and thanking. ❤
