Cinco de Mayo, Fiesta, and...wait a minute...

This is just a quick update to let you know what's been going on and what's going to be going on in the near future.I will probably be posting again tomorrow; a post that was started some while ago. On to today's subjects.

On Cinco de Mayo I spent a lovely day with a friend at the Fiesta of the Spanish Horse held at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. It was not exactly what I had imagined, but it was a perfect day and so good to enjoy with a friend (thanks T!) I took some video which (yes, I'm sure you're getting tired of hearing this) I hope to get edited, converted, and uploaded at some point. I have some vacation time coming up . . . we'll see. I should at least get some nice pictures from it which I'll add to this post. Anyway, details, pics, etc. will be added here or in a separate post later.

I've had many projects to finish at work which have kept me very busy and preoccupied, and I have just finished tweaking the cover of Bronze. All of which has left me with little time to blog.

More importantly, next Friday, June 1, 2012 marks the official release day of the hardbound edition of Bronze. The larger print paperback edition will be rereleased some time this week too. My publisher and I plan to host multiple giveaways, so keep checking back for the locations and sites for those. I'm sure that we'll be giving several away through Goodreads, so if you're a member there you can watch out for it.

I was so excited to find that Bronze was reviewed by Booklist Online. I thought the review reserved but accurate and very fair, and I feel honored to have gotten it at all! You can read it here: Booklist Online--Bronze by B B Shepherd

Another thing I'm immensely excited about is the release of some very special artwork I had commissioned. It will be released in several online locations. So I hope you're hanging in there with me!

To celebrate these upcoming activities let's have some music! How about some Maná? An older one, but one of my absolute favorites. (It's even my phone ringtone :D)
