So I am finally back from being two months abroad in the Czech Republic. Franky and I had a blast doing some location scouting for Of Light and Darkness, finishing up the first draft of book 3 in the novel series, spending time with friends and family, and working on some top secret things for my music EP.
We explored ancient castle ruins, walked the cobble-stone streets of Stramberk, and picked up a lot of fantastic inspiration.
And now that I'm home, there is SO MUCH TO DO!!! And so much to tell you all!
Firstly, I want to thank the awesomely talented editors at Decadent Publishing for working so hard to make Of Light and Darkness #2 soooo perfect! The Vampire's Daughter (in case you haven't already heard the news) is being released July 2nd everywhere books are sold online!
And I have already started by book tour (both live and blog). The only places you can keep up with the latest news and ALL of my stops on my book tour for The Vampire's Reflection, are my fanpages on facebook (both mine and OLAD) and my twitter. Follow me @shayneleighton! I keep all of those spaces online updated regularly. So far, here is a list of my LIVE tour stops...
1. April 27th - All Day - April Is For Authors in West Palm Beach, FL (check Facebook for more details)
2. May 3rd - All Day - St. Mark's Catholic School Visit in Boynton Beach, FL (private event)
3. August 3rd - All Day - Indie BookFest 2012 in Orlando, FL (check Facebook for more details)
I will continue to update everybody on tour stops, and I do hope to be able to hang out with some of my awesome readers! Blog Tour stops will follow soon as well!
Secondly, I was so excited to announce last month that I have officially been signed to the major, indie label, Spectra Records! Spectra is also the official participating label for the UK's most rockin reality show, Live & Unsigned! Pretty huge and I'm pretty excited!
More details on my EP are to follow, and I definitely plan on recording some more cover songs since I recently gained so many awesome listeners on SoundCloud.com! Thank you guys for your support!
And lastly, I wanted to mention that the fantasy film, Legend of the Red Reaper that I played in alongside Tara Cardinal is FINALLY being debuted! And what's more? Is that Uwe Boll and his awesome team are taking it to the Cannes Film Festival in France! Pretty epic! I can't wait for you all to see it!
If you requested an autographed photo from me last month, I will be getting to those this week! Thank you so much for your continued support! I will update when I have mailed them all out!
Other than that, please stay tuned, spread the word to your friends, and you will definitely hear from me soon!
