News and Sightings for the beginning of 2012

NEWS: BRIGHTARROW BURNING has received a couple of lovely reviews lately. Thanks for these!
From Crystal Book Reviews: "Lovers of the romance genre, you won't forget this power-packed story for quite some time! Nicely done, Isabo Kelly!"

From Manic Readers: "If you want a read that will interest you with all the elements you could want in a story—action, feisty females, hot alpha males good and evil as well as hot sex—then get yourself a copy of Brightarrow Burning!"

My other excellent news: I have just signed a contract with Tirgearr Publishing to publish the sequel to The Promise of Kierna'Rhoan--THE SECRET OF NARAVA! I'm very excited about this. More details as I have them but we're looking at a release date in late spring of 2012. Check back in for me.

SIGHTINGS: Catch me at Babbling about Books and More on Tuesday, January 31, talking about the early days of e-publishing. I've been around that world for a long time now, thirteen years! Come chat about how this crazy industry got started.

I'm also doing two different blog tours coming up. One starting on Febrauary 27th. I'll be visiting four different blogs over four weeks and giving away a $25 gift certificate to either Amazon or Barnes and Nobel (winners choice) to one commenter over the course of that tour.

Here's the schedule:

March 12: Carrie Ann Ryan's Blog
March 19: Kacey's Kreations

I'm also doing a week long blog hop tour at the end of March, starting Monday, March 26th. I'll be giving another $25 gift certificate away to one commenter this week as well. So swing in and stalk me! You'll have a great chance to win.

Here's the schedule for this tour:
March 26: TBQ's Book Palace
March 27: Words of Wisdom from The Scarf Princess
March 28: Kindling the Fire

And finally, from April 11-15, I'll be at the Romantic Times Convention in Chicago. I'll be signing at both the ebook book fair and print book signings, so if you're there, stop by my table and say hi! I'll also be having fun at the Intergalactic Bar & Grille with Linnea Sinclair and the whole Bar crowd. Stop in for games and prizes!

Happy Reading!
