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. =)

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!

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?
