My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to those affected by the tornado outbreak in the Dallas, TX area last night (May 15th).
Book trailer for “An Orphan’s Heart,” by Lori Crane. Coming in May of 2013!
My new book,“An Orphan’s Heart,” is currently at the editor, who is going to perform a modern-day miracle and turn my rough edges into a diamond.
I ♥ My Editor!!!
When I get the manuscript back, I will proof, proof, proof, format, format, format, then I will proof some more and finally, format again. Then we’ll call it done. It will be available around May 1, 2013 in Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, and other eBook formats. The paperback will follow within a few weeks at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Create Space.
Somewhere on page 154, you’ll undoubtedly find a typo. Somewhere around page 97, you’ll wonder if the timeline is going where the author meant for it to go. That’s the way of the writing world.
