8 Days and counting!

8 days until the release of Hot Flashes. August 27th was a day way off in the future.  Now? Now it’s around the corner.


I’m currently clutching my towel, though things seem to be perking along. I’ve made my list and I’ve checked it more times than I can count.

  1. Editing – DONE
  2. Cover design, by the very talented Tatiana Villa, for e-book and hard copy – DONE
  3. Formatting for e-book and hard copy – DONE, DONE, DONE! To be honest, I think I lost brain cells during this process.
  4. Marketing plan and Blog Tour in place – DONE September 9th – October 7 will be my blog tour, hosted by Bewitching Blog Tours.  Yikes! I’m excited for the tour, but I hate talking about myself. I’ll get over it.
  5. Postcards & business cards – In Process I have the design for the business cards, just have to get the post card design finished.
  6. Give aways for the blog tour – In Process

I’m really excited.  Smashwords is taking pre-orders (all formats but .mobi will be available) for Hot Flashes. Or if you want to purchase directly, the e-book will be available on Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, iBooks, Kobo, and Sony Reader on August 27, 2013. If all goes well, the trade paperback will also be available on or shortly after August 27, 2013.

The long and short of it?  I hope you buy my book and enjoy Ella’s story. She has more adventures in the works after Hot Flashes. 



  • Very exciting news Leila! I’m looking forward to hearing how the whole process goes for you.

    • Thanks! I’m looking at it all as a grand adventure. 🙂

  • SQUEEEEE!!!!!!!
