Happy New Year Everyone!
Yes, I know I am a few days behind, but it's been pretty hectic the last couple of weeks. :)
However, I am ready to kick into gear the new year by wrapping up some writing projects, reviewing projects, editing projects, and the like. :)
So I thought I would update you guys on what is going on with The Unfading Land Series and other projects that are in the works. :)
The Unfading Lands Book 3
Yes, I am writing it.
Yes, it seems like it is taking me forever.
No, it will not be long before it is released. :)
I have had many people ask me when to expect this final portion of the series and the answer is: I aim to release it in April. :) Yes, that is exactly the one year marker from when I released the first in the series! :) Three books in one year, a short story, and other side projects have kept me busy! But it has been a blast.
Currently I am still writing the first draft for Book 3, but plan to have it finished by the end of January. After that, it will go to my editor for the month of February, Beta Readers in March, and then released in April. (If all goes according to plan) :)
After The complete Unfading Land Series is out, I plan to spend the year attending festivals and signings promoting the entire series. I had more fun attending festivals this year and loved interacting with all the people, readers, and prospective readers. So keep a look out for me if you know a festival in your area. :)
The Stand Alone
My first stand alone novel (meaning it is not part of a series) is actually already underway and almost completed. HOWEVER, I have yet to decide if I want to release it in 2016 or wait until early 2017. I will say I am super excited about it, but I want to make sure to give as much time to The Unfading Lands Series as I can because I worked super hard on it for so long. So once I feel I have given adequate promotion time to the series, then I will start thinking about releasing this particular novel. I can't wait for you guys to read it! Squeeeeeaaaaallllllll. ;)
On top of writing I also work with other authors on their works as well. I read books to review for them. Some I am actually an editor. And then some I am part of their test audience (beta reader). I have probably done about ten of these this year. All of these take considerable time as well, and so I like to point out that though I am a writer, my time is not just spent writing.
I also spend quite a bit of time helping prospective writers get their feet off the ground. I love when people are seeking to set out into the writing world, and what little knowledge I can give them or hook them up with is fun for me.
So all in all, 2015 was a great year. :) And you guys have an enormous part to play in that fact.
2016 looks to be just as promising and exciting. And I hope you guys continue to make the journey with me. :)
I love hearing from you. So please contact me if you have any questions, comments, or remarks. :)
