Book review: Cusp of Night

I just found this fabulous review of Cusp of Night on Dandelions Inspired book review blog. It has me doing a happy dance. I hope you’ll check it out. There are still two more days to pre-order Cusp before the official release on Tuesday, June 12. I’m doing a lot of promo on this one and am thankful to Jennifer of Dandelions Inspired for sharing her review!

The truth hides in dark places… 

Recently settled in Hode’s Hill, Pennsylvania, Maya Sinclair is enthralled by the town’s folklore, especially the legend about a centuries-old monster. A devil-like creature with uncanny abilities responsible for several horrific murders, the Fiend has evolved into the stuff of urban myth. But the past lives again when Maya witnesses an assault during the annual “Fiend Fest.” The victim is developer Leland Hode, patriarch of the town’s most powerful family, and he was attacked by someone dressed like the Fiend.

  2. Congratulations, Mae! (And I just KNOW you’ll share this on #ShareAReviewDay soon!!) Lovely to be getting reviews already, and such a super one. I haven’t yet tried setting up a new book for pre-orders, but I’m thinking maybe I should. It has to feel great to get reviews like this before most have even had a chance to read the book. Well done! 😀 ❤

    • LOL! Yes, I need to put together a share for #ShareAReviewDay. There are several early reviews on NetGalley and Goodreads too. My publisher put the book on NetGalley and I asked several people if they were interested in ARCs. Even if you don’t put a book up for pre-order, you could get early reviews by offering an ARC to book bloggers and authors, readers you know. When I read ARC copies I still purchase the book afterward to help the author with sales and ranking. That way they get an early review, plus it’s a verified review through Amazon.

      • I usually offer a freebie to a couple of reviewers, but some of them won’t take them, since they want it to show as a Verified Purchase. My beta readers sometimes review, but only after the book is published. I need to think about how to approach the release of The Emissary 2. I failed to do a single shred of marketing for TE1, since the hurricane hit us at the same time, and it got lost in the shuffle. Sales reflect that, sadly. So I want to think of some good strategies and promos for TE2. Pre-orders might help.
