About the Author
Murees Dupé was born and still lives in South Africa. When she is not thinking up new stories, she is spending time with her family, playing with her three dogs and cat, watching TV, or overindulging on desserts. To learn more about Murees, visit her website www.mureesdupe.com.

I would like to add something here. Murees is one of the very first bloggers I connected with when I started blogging. She has been a loyal friend. Murees is a dedicated author/blogger and she always has time to help new or fellow bloggers and authors. While I'm always excited when a fellow author announces the release of their debut novel, with Murees I feel like the blogging world and all authors should join in the happy dance with her.

I hope you will share this blog post announcing the release of The Amaranthine with all of your friends, not just your writer friends. Way to go Murees! We're all so very proud of you and wish you a long and successful career as an amazing author. You deserve it.

Other Announcements:

Do you have a completed, polished, unpublished manuscript that is query ready? If so, don't dare miss out on Brenda Drake's #PitMad - a Twitter Pitch Party It takes place on Twitter, tomorrow, September 10, 2015. Don't worry ... if your novel isn't quite ready, you'll have another opportunity for #PitMad on December 4, 2015. 
For more tips on Twitter Pitching, check out Carissa Taylor's Twitter Pitch Party Roundup. Her article is chock full of advice, tips and links to just about everything you need to know before pitching your novel on Twitter.

Carissa shares How To's, Past Winning Pitches & a Pitch Contest Calendar. You'll want to bookmark this page.

Carissa Taylor even includes some fun links like her Pitch Factory - a Twitter Pitch Logline Generator

So, I gave it a try. I opted for the High Stakes Pitch and was directed to the YA Writer's Toolbox - High Stakes Pitch Generator. It works for all genres, not just Young Adult. I typed in my answers to the questions and the generator spit out about twenty pitches for me. With a little tweaking here and there, some of them were quite good.

I just tried it again and this is what the generator popped out for me. Feel free to critique my pitch in the comment section. 

This is the generated pitch, before I tweak it. Just curious what you think:

Ambitious prosecutor has 2 options: Expose illegal adoption attorney & risk losing son or leave innocent person on death row. #PitMad #A



Even with adding the hashtag for #PitMad and #A for Adult it leaves 5 spaces on Twitter. I need to work on it and I'm not sure I'm going to jump in tomorrow. I keep putting it off, but I feel like I will have a better chance in December and I want to make sure my first encounter with visiting agents is a good one and I leave a good impression. Nerves? Yes. How to figure out if it's just nerves and fear of putting myself out there or if I really need more time and work on my manuscript before I put it out there. What a question.

Another Fabulous Contest: 

Miss Snark's First Victim - On the Block takes place tomorrow as well. This is an auction type contest. On the Block will showcase 24 first pages. There is a $20 entry fee for this contest.

My Last Announcement: well, this isn't really my announcement, but a recommendation that you pop over to Cherie Reich's Blog for her List of September Book Releases ... it's a big un!
