December Updates

Hi all! Here are some December updates!

First off, happy holidays to everyone! I hope all my readers have a wonderful winter holiday.

Second, I’m hard at work on a new novel. It’s not part of the Aligerai series. Its working title is Eleanor and Elizabeth, though I’ll be looking for something a little more exciting further down the road. I’m about halfway done with this one and plan to release it early next year. As for the Aligerai series, I’m still about halfway through the third book and I’ll be working on that some more soon. I plan to release that one in late 2015, tentatively around September.

Third, I’m creating an email newsletter! You should all sign up for it. Why? Because you’ll get extra stories, deleted scenes, and access to newsletter-only giveaways. I plan to release a newsletter only once a month or when I have something to update, so I wouldn’t be inundating you with emails. The signup form is here and takes you to MailChimp: http://eepurl.com/3mLh9

Last, I’m mostly busy on finalizing the paperback versions of my first two books! When I’m finished, they’ll be available through Amazon. I hope to do some shows and appearances next year and I would also have the books available at shows for a show-only rate, but since I have no idea where or when I would be doing said appearances just yet, the paperback versions will be available online only.

I think that’s it for now. So don’t forget to sign up for the email newsletter to get cool extras! And happy holidays everyone. =)

New Interviews!

Author Interview Number Fifty-Nine Kira R. Tregoning – Fantasy

So I’m super late in posting this (sorry!) because I got caught up in other things and in setting up Featured Author posts on Fantastical Reads, but I was interviewed! Y’all should totally check it out. Much thanks to Alex of Library of Erana!

Welcome to Kira R. Tregoning

Where are you from and where do you live now? Born and raised in Maryland! I still happily live there.

Please tell us a little about your writing – for example genre, title, etc. I write mainly fantasy novels. They tend to fall under general fantasy or contemporary fantasy. I’m kicking around a sort of sci-fi novel idea, but it hasn’t gone very far yet. I’m also looking for an idea for a fantasy serial to post through my website or Wattpad so I could post chapter by chapter for fun, but I don’t have a good idea yet! My first book was Rise of the Aligerai and my latest is A Shadowed Soul, both part of the Aligerai series. I’m about halfway through the first draft of the third book and am working on two other novels as well.

Release Update

Hi everyone!

OK, so I know I had said I would release A Shadowed Soul on May 31. Obviously, that didn’t happen.

What did happen was I got some last minute feedback. I’ve been working so hard to incorporate the feedback and make these final revisions. I had hoped to get the last of it done today, but it’s looking more and more unlikely that I’ll be able to get it all finished. I still have some 50 pages to go and then I have to check all the revisions for continuity and typos.

I deeply apologize for the delay. I know some of you have been looking forward to this because I’ve heard from a few people asking about it.  Know that I am working very hard to get it done and get it into the best shape possible. I will definitely release in the next couple of days, so stay tuned here for more info.

Again, I’m so sorry for the delay. I feel horrible about it. Thank you to everyone for sticking with me.

And the winners are…

The 2014 Giveaway Extravaganza is now over! Thank you to everyone who participated! Winners were chosen early this morning at random using Rafflecopter’s automated drawing system. The winners are:

First prize: Khadijah Lewis

Congratulations! I’ll be in touch with the winners today. Again, thank you to everyone who participated and entered the drawing, I hope you had fun!

If you did not win but are still interested in reading the books, I’ve listed below where you can find each and what the price is (note that A Shadowed Soul is not released yet and so does not have a link. It will be released on May 31). Enjoy!

Prepare for Exciting Things!

Happy Thursday everyone!

I don’t know about you, but it has been a week of ups and downs for me. I got some really upsetting news about my job on Monday, and from there it’s just been an upsetting week. It has been difficult to concentrate on the good things and on writing.

However, exciting things are coming up, and instead of letting the bad things get me down, I’m looking forward to the good!

In 10 days, the giveaway extravaganza begins! I’ll have a new post on the start day with a link to the Rafflecopter site so you can enter! Sadly, because of WordPress’s restrictions on free sites, I can’t integrate the Rafflecopter entry page into my site here. I tried. Sad faces.

But you should still enter by following the link. It’s worth it!

For more details about the giveaway and to see a full list of the prizes (plus pictures), click here.

And tomorrow, I’m going to Awesome Con in DC. I’m super stoked about this because I’m signed up to meet Billie Piper AND Cary Elwes! I can’t say how excited I am to meet these two in particular. What will I say?? Will I mess up the pictures and have a goofy smile on me face?! Eek! OK, can’t get nervous. So many other great people are going to be there, too. Plus, it looks like they have some amazing panels and talks set up about books, fantasy, dystopia, characterization in writing, and more.  If you haven’t heard about this event, you should go check it out.

What are you excited about today?

Giveaway announcement!

Finally, I can announce the giveaway! I have a lot of awesome info for you all, and I think you all will be very excited about the giveaway! (At least, I hope you will be.)
