In all of my excitement from the new covers and working on formatting the new book I completely forgot to post my 1st cover. I’m a dork, but I’m me, right? What else is new. So I figured, I can add something special to my cover reveal post. I usually don’t post these, but I think these covers are so amazing. Enjoy. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.
I’ve said with every book that I’ve written how important music is to my writing. It is a vital component
to my creative process. I tell myself the characters’ story through a mix tape of songs. Butterfly Kisses
was no different. This playlist consists of songs for specific scenes and some that captured the overall
theme of the book.
Parlor Mob – Into the Sun
Duce – Nobody Likes Me
Brand New – Good to Know That If I Ever Need Attention
LMFAO – Without You
Demi Lavato – Mistake
Justin McRoberts – One
Miike Snow – Silvia
He Is We – Our July in the Rain
Birdy – Shelter
Ryan Adams – Lucky Now
Animal Kingdom – Strange Attractor
Sia – Breath Me
Skylar Grey – Invisible
Cobra Starship – Don’t Blame the World it’s The DJ’s Fault
Enrique Iglesias – Ayer
Ashes Remain – On My Own
Isaac Haines – Steal
Jesse Thomas – Fire
Graham Colton – Everything You Are
Sara Bareilles – Gravity
Grouplove – Colours
Pearl Jam – Just Breathe
Safety Suite – Anywhere But Here
Graffiti 6 – Free
Parachute – The Mess I Made
Safety Suite – Life in the Pain
Graham Colton – Best Days
This playlist along with all of my writing playlists are available for download on iTunes
and Spotify. I would have to say the most impactful song of the whole playlist is Safety Suite’s Life in the
Pain which is my love song to Lacey. It is a theme song to the whole series really, she has a lot of lessons
to learn throughout these books, and I’m proud of where she ends up.
Thanks for following my blog tour. I’m giving away a e-book and iTunes gift card. Enter below for your chance to win. a Rafflecopter giveaway
I’m excited to announce The Ocean, has a new cover. I’ve been thinking about re-doing it for a while. The hardest part of coming up with a cover is finding the image that will express the feeling it invokes in the author. That is one of the reasons, too, that I love, so much, being an independent author and publisher. The freedom to find those images, and the satisfaction when you do. The thing I really like about the new cover, is that I incorporated the original cover in the new one. Being my first release, and a story that is close to my heart, every decision I’ve made with this book has been obsessed over. This story was in my heart before I took my writing serious, and it’s catapulted my journey of becoming a published author. I’ve learned so much and I still have a lot more to learn, but I’m so proud of the product my company provides.
I’m very please to present the new electronic cover for The Ocean.
If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, I would love for you to consider it, and let me know what you think. I enjoy reading reviews, and connecting with readers. If you have already read it, what was your favorite part?
P.S. I have to make sure I thank my Oh-Mazing Readers who offered feedback and helped me tighten it up. You guys rock!
It’s that time again! Book release and blog tour time! The release of Becoming A Butterfly is May 22, 2012 and in celebration we are giving away a lot of ebooks and printed copies. Each blog that is giving away a copy will have their own contest that day, so you don’t want to miss any posts. We have some really fun articles too. I would like to thank all the bloggers who have invited me to their blogs, and Jodi for organizing the whole event. Mark your calendars. And to make sure you don’t miss a post follow me on twitter, miacastile or on facebook micastilesnovels.
I’m a little out of practice, so it’s a little long and full of umms. So much so, you could probably play a drinking game to it, and the vlog is long enough you might get drunk! All jokes aside, I’m pretty serious in it and would love for you to give me six minutes to watch the whole thing. Leave a comment here or on Youtube, I’d love your feedback.
If you or someone you know might be struggling with depression, or self harm, please speak up and get help. You are not alone.
The Points Matters contest had an amazing turn-out. I counted almost a thousand total tweets for the contest. But like all good things it came to an end last night at midnight with a few tweets sliding in at the last minute.
That being said I’d like to announce the winners.
In 3rd Place were @uniquelymoi and @mrsteemae_books. Congratulations. Your prizes are a Swag package including a personalized poster, bookmark and postcard.
