From June 1 - 17 GraveTells.com will be under construction for a theme revamp that has been 3 years in the making. I am SO excited to share the new format with you! So if you come around during that time period, expect some dust and general disorderliness. =) Here's a peek at what's coming! ALSO! PLUS, Indiependence is BACK! In 2012 and 2013 GraveTells hosted an event called Indie Week that celebrated self-publishing and small presses. This year, it's back and better than ever. The 2017 event is one month long and will cross two blogs: GraveTells.com and DaVinciKittie.com, my editor blog. We'll have goodies for readers and authors, so watch your email for those updates in late June!

Editorial & Giveaway (US/Int): Bookouture founder Oliver Rhodes on the future of digital publishing
Please help me welcome Oliver Rhodes, founder of Bookouture Publishing!
At the risk of sounding old, I have worked in publishing for the last 15 years. In the last three or four, I feel like I have had to almost completely re-learn my job as so much has changed. Whilst that means a lot of hard work, it’s a really exciting time to be working in the industry – and especially for me as I started my own digital publishing company, Bookouture, last year.
Here are a few of my own observations about some of the changes in publishing that I think are particularly exciting… and some educated guess work about where the industry might be headed!

Book Spotlight & Giveaway (US/Int): The Husband Diet by Nancy Barone
The Husband Diet is for fans of snarky humour, women who know what it’s like to feel under-appreciated, and those that don’t think plus size heroines only come in a size 12. With a simple honesty that is in turns both hilarious and touching, you’ll laugh and cry. Sometimes both at the same time.
