Thursday Teaser: Snake’s Alive Cover Reveal, and Release Date

It’s here! We have a cover for Snake’s Alive! And I think it’s pretty spiffy. Before we get to that, though, I wanted to let you know that I also have a release date. Snake’s Alive, the Yo-Yo Files #2, is going to be available at the usual e-book retailers on or shortly after June 13. It will definitely be on Amazon and Smashwords on that date. Some other retailers might take a few days longer to get it live. Which is right on time, although I will admit, there were moments leading up to this when I didn’t think it was going to happen. There are so many details involved in releasing a new book, and sometimes, it feels like nothing is getting done. And it goes well beyond just the writing, re-writing, and editing. But, hey, it all came together and we’re just about there, aren’t we? I am pretty excited.

Which brings me to a reminder: Five and Daemon, the Yo-Yo Files #1, is still free to download at most e-book retailers (except Amazon, sorry), until Snake’s Alive is released next week. So, if you want an idea of what these urban fantasy stories are like, you’re chance to get it free is running down fast. Probably the easiest place to get it right now is Smashwords. It’s available there in all sorts of forms, including as a Kindle compatible .mobi file. Of course, if you have a favorite place to get your books, you can look for it there, too. Except, as I said, Amazon, who won’t let me put a book up free unless I opt for KDP Select, but that would mean I can’t send it anywhere else, and I prefer not to do that. Five and Daemon will be available at Amazon after Snake’s Alive releases. It will be priced at .99 at that point everywhere. And, Snake’s Alive will be the same price. Both are a bargain! As always, if you get and read these or any of my other books, a review is appreciated. They do help, trust me. And thank you so very, very much.

Okay, if you’ve gotten this far, I suppose I shouldn’t keep you in suspense any longer. So, without further ado, here is the cover for Snake’s Alive, the Yo-Yo Files #2:


I think it’s quite nice. What do you think?

Many, many thanks to the BaldMan (Kream of the Kropp Techworks) for this!

So, there it is. The cover, and release date of June 13. Mark your calendars!!!
