Cover reveal! AS WE KNOW IT by Carrie Butler

Whew. I'm glad to be posting good news for a change. And as good news goes, this is AWESOME! Carrie Butler has a new book coming in December. To keep all of us in pee-dancing, drooling anticipation, she's revealing the cover and the trailer. 

Prepare to be blown away...


Deep beneath the ocean, stretching hundreds of miles alongside the Pacific Northwest coastline, lies the Cascadia subduction zone—a fault on the verge of unleashing a catastrophic earthquake, thirty times more powerful than the San Andreas. Unfortunately, like most tourists, Elena Cordova is oblivious.

She’s got her own pent-up stress to deal with, a humiliating breakup that’s driven her to end her tenure as a human doormat once and for all. So, when a pickpocket makes off with the last remnant of her relationship, she takes action—only to get trapped with him when disaster strikes.

Now, if either one hopes to survive, they’ll have to get past their initial impressions and work together . . . because in fifteen minutes, half the town will be underwater.

Title: As We Know It
Author: Carrie Butler
Category
: Adult
Genres: Action / Adventure (Disaster) & Romantic Suspense
Release: December 2016


Carrie Butler is an award-winning author and the owner of Forward Authority full-service studio—not to mention an inbound-certified marketer with a penchant for superhero socks and Firefly. Time away from her desk is spent playing with her rescue pup, yelling at the TV during hockey season, and indulging in target-based recreation. Otherwise, you’re likely to find her glued to her chair, discovering new ways to share her daydreams...

Anthology Fail - My side of the story

I'm sure by now, many of you have heard of the demise of The Thing That Turned Me anthology. The authors are pulling their stories left and right, and the publisher, Randi Lee of Stay Classy Publications, has apparently abandoned the project. She refuses to communicate with us, but her actions in the last week can't mean much else.

I debated whether to post about this at all. We writers usually avoid saying anything negative for political and sometimes legal reasons. But I decided to put this out there, not only to warn my friends, but also to keep the publisher from being able to spin the story to her benefit.

I was a contributing author and a front-row witness to the train wreck. This is not hearsay.

Houston, we have a problem


Due to delays on the part of the publisher, The Thing That Turned Me anthology launch is on hold until further notice. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this has caused my readers.

The post I promised you

I've been lousy at keeping promises lately, at least to my cyber friends. That's because circumstances out of my control (read: life) have consumed my free time. Other than my submission to the anthology, I haven't written anything in months. Nada. Nothing.

All I've managed to do is some research for my next novel. But even that was largely collecting info. I haven't had time to read much of it or make notes.

So what HAVE I been doing?
Well, let's see...

Hopefully, this isn't goodbye

Most of you have probably noticed by now that my social media presence has been practically nonexistent. I've been a lousy blogger and return visitor, and I hate it, but there wasn't much I could do about it. My alter-ego's life has radically changed.

Due to factors outside my control, I'm going to have to go on hiatus...a real, serious hiatus. I won't even be doing IWSG or promo posts for a while.
