Wow, where does the time go? I’ve been staying busy with writing-related projects these past few months. First off, the UCF Book Festival was a HUGE success! I sold out of Firebrand! Thank you, everyone for your support, and it was awesome to meet so many people there! I had a fun time, and I definitely plan on attending next year (4/15/2014)!
Camp NaNoWriMo was rough, but also a success. Lesson learned: don’t do NaNoWriMo when you have other WIPs and deadlines on your plate. It gets VERY tedious. Regardless, I have another draft done, and something I can put away and edit later when I finish my other projects.
My biggest project I’ve been working on now has been Flameseeker, which is book 3 of the trilogy. It’s undergoing major rewrites, and I’m about 45% of the way done with it before it needs to be sent off to the editor. I was hoping to have the book out by this summer some time, but I don’t think I will make that deadline. It will probably be out this fall. The book will be MUCH longer than the first two — most likely my longest book I’ve ever written. It will be a huge accomplishment for me to finally see it finished.
Other projects that are nearing completion and will be out soon (sometime this summer) are: Bane of the Goddess (the second and final short story of the Goddess mini-series), and Present Company, a flash fiction which I will be making a FREE download. Present Company is a short prequel to The Necromancer’s Apprentice.
And speaking of The Necromancer’s Apprentice, a new (and final) edition has been uploaded to all major ebook retailers. If you previously purchased the book, you can re-download it at no charge. The paperback versions have also been redone. For the past year or so, I’ve been formatting books as a hobby, and I think I’ve gotten a little better with the paperback formatting, so I thought it was time to update my own books.
