Thank you to everyone who entered my Goodreads Giveaway. I was thrilled to see over 1,000 people were interested in winning a copy of Iron for the holidays!
The winners were spread out nicely over three countries, with one being here in the US and the others being in England and Ireland, respectively. That’s incredibly cool to me, and I hope international readers enjoy Caitlin’s romp through Riverview, New Jersey too.
Goodreads has forwarded the winners’ information over to me and I will be mailing out the signed copies this weekend, along with a few extras. If you were one of the three picked, I hope you enjoy Iron and I would love to hear what you think of it after you read it!
Interested in Iron, but short on funds?
Well, here’s your chance to get a score a free signed, first edition paperback copy! Gift the first book in my “deliciously dark and humorous” new urban fantasy season to someone you love this holiday season. (Or keep it for yourself–I won’t judge.)
Enter my Goodreads Holiday Giveaway below, for the chance to win one of those three signed copies. Good luck!
Not gonna lie–seeing Iron‘s cover as the lead image on Betty Book Freak today made my morning!
Iron is being featured as their fantasy new release today, and I’m truly honored that they chose my book’s cover to be the main image of the day. (Fiona Jayde Media‘s fantastic cover art gets all the credit, of course. It is gorgeous and I’m still head over heels in love with it.)
Check it out!
I’m normally a shy little introvert, so parties of any type aren’t really my thing. Especially a party where I’m the center of attention. Holy self consciousness, Batman!
Don’t get me wrong; I adore this little book of mine. I may have even toted around the first physical proof for a day or two, hardly able to put it down or stop grinning. But, talking about it is still hard for me (stupid anxiety) and I kind of balk at the idea of putting myself out there right beside it. Its not that I don’t want to celebrate the fruits of my hard labor or share it with others–quite the opposite! I just have a hard time engaging with people outside of the written word and feel I much better express myself in a medium like this blog. In person? I turn beet red and get tongue tied like whoa.
However, I have wonderful friends who love and support me, and some of them insisted on throwing me a book launch party–and how could I say no to that honor?

Iron is live!
::tosses confetti… then pouts when she realizes she will now need to vacuum::
Oh! And its National Coffee Day, so–ya know–its just going to be a great day all around. (And since I’m sipping my Tim Horton’s from my Iron coffee mug, it’s pretty much perfection to a little ol’ caffeine fiend like me.)
To purchase Iron, please check out the Books section on my website, or follow one of the handy dandy links I will be inserting right here. Iron is available in eBook form on Kindle, Nook, and iBooks. It is also available in paperback exclusively through Amazon.com.
If you’re a visual person (much like I am), you can also checkout my Pinterest board dedicated to this series and the images I find inspiring for it here! I’m sure I’ll also be posting a ton of Iron related pics today (and in the days to come) on Instagram, so make sure to follow me at mrsrobinlcole.
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it and hope you enjoy reading about Caitlin’s adventures as much as I did writing about them!
Tomorrow, Iron will be released across multiple platforms.
This is it. My first book will be live; published and ready for reader consumption. Reading those words–typing those words–is an incredible mix of emotions. Its surreal and it terrifying, but more than anything it is absolutely fucking amazing. I cannot even begin to put in to words how I feel right now, and how this whole whirlwind crash course in the world of indie publishing all together has made me feel… But I’ve got some thoughts swirling around in my brainpan right now, so I’m going to try.

I can’t wait any longer! I wanted to wait until I had a hard release date set, but I’ve been dying to share the cover of Iron, the first book in The Warding, my debut urban fantasy series.
So, without further ado–here it is!
Isn’t she a beauty?
I am absolutely over the moon with the work that the lovely Fiona Jayde has done. It is simply stunning. She captured the essence of Caitlin perfectly. Thank you so much Fiona!
Iron is slated to debut in mid-September 2015. It will be available as an eBook on Kindle, Nook, and Kobo, as well as in paperback from Amazon.com. As soon as I have the hard release date I will let you know, so check back here at the blog or visit me on Facebook at Robin L. Cole, Writer.
Also keep an eye out for a sample excerpt of Iron in the “Books” section, which is coming very, very soon.
