Introductory Introductions

Happy Friday! Hope you had a good week. I was on the road, driving all over God's creation. So glad I have time to sit down and get this post out into the interwebs, 'cause I got some introductions to make.

First up, FRACTION OF STONE cover reveal. Ta da!

Fraction of Stone by Kelley Lynn
Release Date: March 21st, 2013 by Sapphire Star Publishing
Genre: YA Fantasy
Book Description:

Wind tunnels, torrential rains and earthquakes tear apart Casden. The cause of the world’s imbalance is unknown, but the mounting occurrences suggest there’s little time before life ceases to exist.

Rydan Gale and Akara Nazreth are the only humans with the ability to wield magic. The tattoo on their necks and the discovery of an ancient book, dictate they are the key to the world’s survival.

But the greatest obstacle for saving mankind isn’t the bizarre creatures, extreme betrayals and magic-fearing men hunting them.

It’s that Akara doesn’t believe the world is worth saving.

Doesn't it sound so incredibly fantastic? And here's a little information about Ms. Kelley Lynn:

Eventually the day came when the voices in Kelley Lynn’s head were more insistent then her engineering professor’s. So instead of turning to her Thermodynamics book, Kelley brought up a blank page on her computer screen and wrote. Somewhere along the way she became a Young Adult author.

Kelley was born and raised a Midwestern girl. She’s not afraid to sweat and fills her free time with softball, soccer and volleyball. (Though you probably don’t want her on your volleyball team.) She occasionally makes guest appearances as a female vocalist for area bands.

You can find Kelley hanging out at her blog, as well as the group blog she shares with her fellow critique partners, Falling for Fiction. Kelley is a member of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators.

I would also like to introduce you to Michael Ignacio. He's a fellow writer with Hydra Publications, and he happens to live in my state of Missouri (not Misery). 

He's also new to blogging, and you can find his new website at

And his last name, Ignacio, means Ignite in Spanish. Isn't that just kick ass? 

If you could, please say hi to Michael in my comments section and give him some advice/encouragement about writing, blogging, investing, driver's safety, water polo - WHATEVER!


Kelley Lynn said...

I jumped over to his blog and gave a little welcome :) So nice of you to help him out a bit.

And thanks for helping ME out Jay! I really appreciate it :)

Jay Noel said...

You are so welcome, Kelley! Your cover is pretty darn gorgeous.

Vero said...

Hi Ignacio! :) Stick to the top 3 most important things in blogging (be yourself, be consistent, be patient) and you'll be perfectly fine.

Fraction of Stone sounds very interesting! Wish you much success with it, Kelley!

Jay Noel said...

Vero: Fantastic advice. Especially the patient part.

Miranda Hardy said...

Congrats to Kelley! Welcome to Michael. I'll stop by his site.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations, Kelley! You're all over this week.

PT Dilloway, Superhero Author said...

The best advice about blogging is to go to a lot of other blogs and make inane comments so they will follow back to make inane comments on your blog.

Also, don't be a grumpy bulldog.

Brinda said...

Hi Michael,
It's nice to meet you and welcome to the world of blogging. I tend to be of the cheerleader sort, but the cheering is sincere. I'll drop by your blog. Jay always has great topics and is good one to follow.

Lynda R Young said...

Congrats to Kelley. It's a great cover. Very eye-catching.

Jay Noel said...

Miranda: Thanks, and I hope your computer issues go away.

Alex: She sure is!

PT: We all need to be a little grumpy now and again.

Brinda: Thanks so much!

Lynda: I agree.

Michael Offutt, Speculative Fiction Author said...

Kelley, your cover is amazing. And it's wonderful to meet another Hydra author.

Mr. Shife said...

You are a good dude, Jay. Way to help out your fellow writers and bloggers. Hope you have a good weekend.

Michael Ignacio said...

Thank you Vero! I will make sure to follow those three rules. :) I am still learning about this blogging business, but it is preety neat. Thank you PT. I will make sure to make inane comments a plenty. Thanks to you too Brinda.
