I wrote Slivers of Infinity several years ago, and I was really excited about it. Probably because it combines some of my most favorite things (magic and pop-culture) into one glamorous book. There are even pancakes! It was a true labor of love, and I had some great expectations for it. But after receiving lots of rejections, I shelved it. Then I decided to scrap it for parts and moved on to romance. But this story kept hovering in the back of my mind, and with some urging from husband…I decided to self-publish it. Yep.
And I’ve got to be honest, at first I was very hesitant and terrified to finally release a book. There is a lot of emotions involved with being so vulnerable and so open with a creative labor. But, then I came to the realization that I always want to write. Even if I only get one star reviews. Even if everyone in the world rails against me and tells me what a horrible writer I am. Writing is a part of my very soul, and I have to write. I have to get these stories out and into the world. So I took the plunge. This will be the first book to bear my name, but it won’t be the last. Not even by a long shot.
So here we are, the cover reveal for my debut novel Slivers of Infinity.
5,000 years ago, in Ancient Babylon, a god named Infinity was killed, leaving behind Slivers of her essence and power.
Twelve men and women acquired much of that power (though not all), and quickly rose far above their fellow men. In time, they became known as gods, and were given new names. As far as humankind is concerned, they were nothing but myths and legends.
In reality, they moved.
15-year old Kace and 17-year old Jordan, a quirky pair of movie-obsessed siblings living in a New York City orphanage have a rather simple life: avoid dish duty, sneak into R-rated movies, and occasionally crash red-carpet events in their hometown of New York.
But they’re about to learn that there’s far more to the past, to themselves, and to the very nature of reality than even their wild imaginations can conceive.
I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I loved writing it.
Now, go forth and write!
