Happy Thursday all. I’m sure some of you are wondering what happened to the expected installment for Daughter of Mars, which I’ve spent the better part of the past almost two years posting once a week on Thursdays. I have good and bad news on that front. The good news is that Curiosity Quills has signed that series for publication. The bad news… for obvious reasons, I can no longer post it online as part of the publishing contract.
Of course this leaves me without a weekly thing to post about, so I’ll have to start coming up with some other random stuff rather than a serial fiction which, perhaps was entirely missing the point of this whole blogging thing. I am up to my eyeballs in edits at the moment, so today’s post is going to be brief… but eventually I’ll find something to rattle on about 🙂
Updates: I’m getting excited about the release of my second young adult book, The Summer the World Ended, which is due out on 6/29. Eleven days left. There’s an online release party on Facebook on the 29th, with some games and prizes to be won. Please feel free to drop in: https://www.facebook.com/events/800375976744247/ A few people have commented that the main character of my first YA book, Caller 107, was a little hard to like at first (which was on purpose – it is, after all, a story of karma and second chances) – so far the feedback I’m getting about Riley says people are rooting for her.
Back to the Daughter of Mars series. The first book, Hand of Raziel, is scheduled for release in August of 2016. Araphel, book 2, is finished, but still in the process of editing.
ARCHON’S QUEEN – book two of the Awakened series is due for release in August 2015. I will hopefully have some cover art to share pretty soon. Looks like GREY RONIN, book 3 of the series, is on target for May 2016. DAUGHTER OF ASH, book 4 is scheduled for March 2017, ZERO ROGUE for January 2017, and ANGEL DESCENDED (the end of the series) for August 2018.
In October of this year, my first foray into middle grade fantasy, EMMA & THE BANDERWIGH is coming out on the 12th.
If anyone is interested in advanced reader copies for The Summer the World ended in exchange for an honest review on or around release day, send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyway… off to the editing mines.
