"Thank God it's Friday night and I just got paid" . . .

I got my first Amazon payment for sales from my book "The Eyes of Alexander".  It was small, but exciting nonetheless.  It's thrilling to know I'm an author and I get paid for doing what I love.  I need to keep going, promote, promote, promote! What do you guys think of my book covers? Feel free to chime in with comments.  Here's an excerpt from the second book from The Eyes Trilogy, "The Eyes of Aubriana":  "I hadn’t seen Xander Ayes in six weeks.  Six weeks of hell.  Six weeks of devastation.  Six weeks of me not being me.  For without Xander, I was nothing.  I may as well be dead.  There were times I thought I was dead.  Everything was a blur.  Night and day were the same; time stood still.  I was stuck in a universe where nothing moved forward and nothing progressed.  I was just there, in purgatory, waiting to die, except—something inside of me kept me alive.  Something wanted me to live; needed me to live even though I didn’t want to.  The feeling was unrelenting; I had to keep going for some reason; keep eating, keep drinking, keep living.  I didn’t know why or how or what, I just had to."
