I’ve been busy adding content to the website and working towards an editing deadline, so I thought I’d do a news update.
The first book in my new contemporary fantasy series will go to my editor on June 25th. Since it’s around 60,000 words, she should have it back to me within three weeks or so. Given that, I’d normally say that I expect to release it sometime in August, but August will be unusually busy this year. My parents will celebrate their golden wedding anniversary (yes, that’s 50 years!), and one of my sisters will get married. Our family will celebrate a long-term marriage and a brand new marriage.
I may still get the book out in August, but to give myself some breathing room, I’ll say that it should be out sometime in September. If I release it earlier than that, great!
I’ve added a video to the homepage of the website. It’s short and sweet, and features me giving a brief introduction to each of my books. Check it out. If you like it and want to help me spread the word about my books, share it.
In addition, I’ve added an Audio Excerpts page. Right now, there’s only one excerpt there, from Threaded Through Time. I’ll definitely add more.
I also added an FAQ a few weeks ago. It answers several questions I’ve received about the Rymellan series, touches on my writing process, and contains a photo of my workspace (thrilling, I know!). If you have a question you’d like me to answer, ask away in a comment or send me an email through the contact page.
Check the About page for details about my writing journey.
Apart from the audio excerpts page, which I just added half an hour ago, you would already have been notified about most of these changes if you were on my Facebook page. If you’re a friend on my personal profile, I’m happy to have you on board. However, I don’t discuss my writing, fiction, books, or anything else related to my life as an author on my personal profile. I do all of that on my Facebook page, which you can find here.
I also post short comments and links to interesting articles on my Facebook page; stuff that’s too short for a blog post.
If you want my writing related updates to appear in your news feed, like my Facebook page.
I’m currently working on a trailer for the Rymellan series. I hope to have it ready by the end of next week.
I’ll soon start talking about that first book in my new contemporary fantasy series. I usually don’t say much about a book until it’s gone to my editor, and that time is approaching.
More audio excerpts are on the way. If there’s a particular scene you’d like me to read, let me know.
I’d like to give away a signed book or two. I’m trying to figure out the logistics. Watch this space.
Have a great weekend. To my American friends: enjoy your Memorial Day holiday!
