Gala Hop is the AtoZ way of announcing the launch party for the first book in my new space opera series, The Backworlds. Book#1 of The Backworlds series.
You're invited to a party! Release date is Monday, May 7th, and I'm having a party. I hope some of you will join me in posting up the cover, a blurb, and links, all of which I will send you via email, giving you a major break after AtoZ ends. I hope to create at least a tiny web buzz and get this book into as many hands as possible.
The Backworlds will be free. The first chapter is currently up on my website. I'm really excited about this series.
If you'd like to do more to help me launch, write 'more' next to your name in the linky sign up.
