Witch Hunt : The Publishing Process

So I thought I would add the cover of Witch Hunt. I personally really like this cover. I was a little worried because I only filled out a form for this and didn't get to preview it before publishing, but I had nothing to worry about. It came out great! At least I think so. 

As Witch Hunt was my first professional published novel, I didn't know much about the entire process. Like many authors I feared the editing process. We've all heard the horror stories, but editing was a real dream for me. Waiting on the release turned out to be the hardest part.

Now to focus on promotion and spreading the word. By the by, if you're interested you can find Witch Hunt for sale @ Cobblestone Press. You can also read an except from the beginning of the story.

Good dreams.

J.R. White’s New Book “Witch Hunt” Released June 15th

On June 15th, the world of the witch and the wolf merged into one with the release of the new book by J.R. White. Witch Hunt is the latest hit book to be released by Cobblestone Press and will debut their newest addition, author J.R. White. Many have been anticipating this release since word began to spread months ago in several social media and online forums. 

Here is what one eager person had to say, “I can't wait. This book really seems like a true hit! Come on June 15th! This even sounds better than Twilight.”

About Witch Hunt
After the bloody murder of her brother, Rei finds herself on the run from the coven that killed him. A powerful Earth witch, Rei searches for a natural well of magic to avenge her brother’s death, even if it costs her life. However, standing between her and her goal is an alluring wolf. 

Aidan never took the time or interest to look for his mate, but when the young witch shows up on pack hunting grounds his solitary life is turned upside down. Now, he must find a way to protect his pack and the woman that fate has handed him.

Witch Hunt is available in eBook format and will be available at: Check in to get a copy of this much-anticipated Paranormal Romance novel.

Upcoming Event: Camp NaNoWriMo

Every October authors all over the world start to gear up and rush to get ahead. Why? Simple. November is Nation Novel Writing Month and many of those authors plan on taking the challenge to write 50K words in just 30 days.

Of course not every writer can make the commitment. Things happen in this world of ours, whether its bad timing on a big project or a sudden problem with an internet connect, things happen that block us from that worth while challenge. That's why for several years now NaNoWriMo has also had a summer camp. Typically two months are picked out, around April or July, and the challenge is set forth. Next month, July 2013, is the second installment of Camp NaNoWriMo this year.

Camp NaNoWriMo has most of the same features as NaNoWriMo. Fewer writers take part, but there are still a great deal of other authors to chat with. You can also find yourself set up with some writing buddies in the cabins.
I plan on taking the challenge next month. While I have yet to write a full 50K words in such a short time I find that the challenge itself can really help generate some great ideas and motivation to get a story started and well on its way to being finished.

So the question now is: Can you write 50K words in just one month?
