I Know It's Been A While...


So like the title of this blog states, I know it's been a while since I've really sat down and posted anything real to this blog and there is a big reason for this. I wanted to jump on here and do a small post letting you know what's going on with this blog and life in general for me. 

As some of you know I've been around in the blogging/publishing world for a long time. Well, over ten years now. I've always had a dream to not just be a blogger reviewing other authors' books. I've wanted to be an author who has books out that bloggers/reviews are...well reviewing for. That's about to actually happen! That's where I've been and why I haven't been blogging here. Yep, one of my all-time biggest dreams is going to come true starting next year. Hopefully, sometime in January 2022, my first release, First to Fight will be available for everyone to read. The pre-order for the book is actually already available so if you want to check that out you can, just know the date on it isn't correct, but I'll explain that later.

It's been a crazy journey to get to where I am now. The book is with my editor right this very moment and she's supposed to have it ready for me by next month. I'm super excited! I will have revisions to input and I have to learn how to format the book...oh yeah I almost forget I'm self-publishing my books. Also when I say books, I mean a huge series. Like I have plans for over 15 books in this series so far. I probably should tell you more about the books themselves but I really can't just yet, once I can though I will make another post and tell you all about the series. I will tell you this though they are contemporary military adult romance. The first three of which will be released in 2022! The series is called the First to Fight series and I honestly can't wait to share them with everyone. 

So much has happened it's all a bit crazy. My cover reveal happened yesterday so I can also share that with you here on this post. 

You all might know the amazing cover artist who created this beautiful cover for me and has already created the next two as well. Rachel over at Parajunkee Designs made this for me and I'm seriously in love with it. (If you're an author and need covers, you really should check out her work, she was so fantastic to work with! ) 

The summary for First to Fight will be available soon as well. 

As far as Ali's Bookshelf is concerned, I will no longer be taking review requests. I'm honestly not sure what I want to do just yet with this blog. It's been a part of my life for a long time and I don't want to just leave it. I'm thinking of maybe doing more lifestyle things on it or...well I'm not sure just yet. I will let you all know as soon as I do though. I hope you all will stick with me and go through this author's journey with me.  I will be blogging a lot over on my author's website. You can find that HERE. 

Anyway, sorry for the rambly blog, but I really wanted to just touch base with everyone here and let you all know what's been going on. I hope you all have a great week and as always...
