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. =)

And the winners are…

Opinions and Feedback Needed

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!  I have a couple of questions for you all.  I’m preparing to start on cover art for Book 2 (still untitled so far, sadly) and am also doing prep work to put Rise of the Aligerai into paperback.  So I have some questions for you all and I hope some or all of you will leave a comment with your thoughts!

  • Book size: Mass market paperback or trade paperback?  Mass market is the smallest size available while trade paperback is that sort of in-between size between mass market and hardcover.  I have both options and while I prefer mass market for the books I read, I know others sometimes prefer the larger book as it’s skinnier and sometimes easier to hold.  Thoughts?
  • Cover art for Rise of the Aligerai: Change or keep?  I did get some feedback before deciding on the final design for Book 1, which I designed myself, but now that I’m going to a pro for cover art for Book 2, should the art for Rise of the Aligerai be updated?  Do you like it, or would you rather see something different?  If you want to see something different, do you have anything specific in mind?

Thanks to everyone who contributes!

Book 2 is currently in beta reading.  My goal is to release in October.  Stay tuned!
