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. =)

Happy Holidays!

Hello everyone!  I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season and are gearing up for an awesome new year!

Sadly, not much has changed for me in the writing world. I’m still looking for beta reading/feedback on my second manuscript. I could publish it without that feedback, but that always makes me a little nervous. Every author misses things, and publishing without the feedback has never been ideal. So I’m faced with the unfortunate choice of either moving forward without the feedback or holding until I receive some input from a reader.

I also don’t have cover art. Kind of important! [By the way, I’m looking for a cover artist, if anyone out there is interested.]

Book 3 is in progress, and I believe the word count on the right sidebar is a little out of date. I’ll have to check, but I believe I added a few more pages to the total.

NaNoWriMo was a disaster for me this year. I started out strong, but faded by the second week. But I have a good excuse! I was working on a Christmas project for my family. I wrote up a family history book detailing all my family history research. It was a massive project totaling some 140 Word pages and I didn’t even finish everything I wanted to include.

And now it’s the holidays. NaNoWriMo is done. My Christmas project is finished (for now). I have plenty of time off work.

It’s time to get some writing done!

One final plea for 2013: please, someone out there, please agree to read the draft of Book 2 and send me feedback! I would really appreciate this gift. I should also add that all beta readers receive a free copy of the finished work as thanks.

Best to all, happy holidays, and happy new year!
