There's only a few more days until the release of Pray for Dawn and I have to admit that I am growing more and more anxious about the book hitting the shelves. Now, I have to admit that I get nervous before every book, despite the fact that I would now be considered something of a veteran with four books in the shelves. There are still things that I'm learning and mistakes that I'm making, but the learning curve isn't as steep as it once was.
I think one of the reasons that I am so anxious about this book is due to the fact that I changed storytellers with Pray for Dawn. The point of view switches from Mira, the vampire, to Danaus, the vampire hunter. I thought after listening to Mira tell her side of the story for three books that it was time for Danaus to have his shot at the spotlight for a while.
Another important thing about Pray for Dawn is that is very quietly lays out what both Mira and Danaus want most in the world, what is truly important to them.
And naturally, I start to move along their relationship a little further in this book, which should please some readers who have been patiently waiting for Danaus to make a move.
For a peek at my truly neurotic behavior when it comes to the release of a book, I have posted a blog entry over at Fangs Fur & Fey about the release of a book and the anxiety associated with it.
Also, some of you may have seen it already, but I have posted below the video I made last fall while in Savannah. This video takes a look at some of the places that appear in Pray for Dawn. Enjoy!
Stay tuned. As soon as I receive my author copies of Pray for Dawn, there will be contests!!!
