I’m getting ready to hop on and do my weekly live check-in on Facebook (@ 8:30 PM EST), but since I’ve been quiet on here, I wanted to say hello before I head on over there 🙂
By now, if you follow ANY of my Social Media sites, or subscribe to my Newsletter, you’ve heard the updates on my new work in progress. Just in case you haven’t, I wanted to post a special something here as well for you!!
My current work in progress, which is a paranormal romance / urban fantasy novel is titled A Hunter Within! This will be Book 1 in a Duology. The release date is still in the works, but it will be launching THIS JULY 2018!!
I can’t wait to share another book and new characters with you. So far, you all have only met Ariya Adams in her trilogy. I’m nervous, but filled with excitement, about introducing you to some new characters in an all-new series!
Along with the title announcement I made last week, I also posted the first ever teaser of A Hunter Within. It can be found right here on my webpage: https://www.authorannaapplegate.com/a-hunter-within/a-hunter-within-teasers/

Now, onto what I’ll be focusing on and chatting with everyone about this week — the Brain to Books Cyber Convention & Book Expo … or B2BCYCON 2018!!
I will be taking part in this FREE, ALL ONLINE Book Convention and Expo this week! This is going to be SO much fun! This is like a virtual tradeshow of books — there is an expo where you can browse books of ALL genres, check out excerpts from various authors, watch as authors read excerpts from their books, see different interviews, panels, etc. There is also a Cover Wars Tournament and Character Tournament! It’s going to be an incredibly fun three days online, so you can enjoy all of it from the comfort of your home, in your pajamas!!
The Ariya Adams Trilogy will be a part of the Book Expo. I also have an expert from Protected that is part of the Just Read portion of the convention.
I would love your help for one part of the convention this week. My covers, designed by the incredible Cover Me Pretty, are part of the Cover Wars in the Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy category. Starting at 9 PM on April 5th, you can log on and start voting for your favorite covers. It’s set up as a bracket style, with different rounds of voting, culminating in a winner at the end of the convention! I’d love if you stop by and have a minute to vote. I can’t take much credit for my covers, Cover Me Pretty did all the concepts and work and while I may be biased, I LOVE what she created for me!
I’ll post the direct link, but you can access the main Cover Wars link, and then select the Paranormal Romance Category starting April 5th here: http://b2bcycon.com/cover-wars/
You can get in on all of the amazing content of B2BCYCON here: http://b2bcycon.com! Make sure you stop by starting April 6th!!
That’s all I have for you for now!! Have a FANTASTIC week, everyone!
