I thought that I should give you all an update on what’s going on book-wise. I’ve been posting excerpts for awhile now, but I think a succinct post on them all might be helpful.
To bring it all down to the basics, I’ve been editing a lot lately and not writing. This has got to change. I don’t know if it’s because I’m in a slump or just because I wrote so much in the past that now I have to catch up with all my editing, but it seems to be overwhelming. While I love editing for other people, I also enjoy writing. I want to find a good balance. Since NaNoWriMo is coming up, my balance is still going to be off. I’ve taken an oath to do NO editing during that month.
For specific novel updates…
Dying Embers will be released on December 1st. It’s all ready and set to go. I will have a blog tour going on for the last week in November for this. If you are interested in participating (which would be awesome since I need at least three more people), you can go here and fill out the form. I’ll send everything pretty soon. Dying Embers is the prequel to Forever Burn and looks more closely at Addison and how she got to Norwich.
For by Grace is in it’s second editing stage. I’m in theory going through that this week *snorts and giggles* It’s not actually happening though. Maybe in the next two weeks. This novel is one I’m really excited about. It’s scheduled to come out June 1, 2014 with Supposed Crimes. So excited! I just picked the cover, and I’m waiting on the final proofs for it. It’s gonna kick some ass. Likewise, during NaNoWriMo, I will be writing the sequel to this novel titled Fallen from Grace.
Ashes Fall is in the first editing stages. I’ve gotten it back from my beta’s and just need to take the time to go through it. It’s not scheduled for release until September 1, 2014, so I do have some time. My guess is that I’ll be editing it over Christmas break…you know, when I don’t have that pesky thing called school to take up all of my time.
Across Worlds: Collision is in the final, final stages. My cohort and I need to go through it one more time before it goes back to the publisher. It’ll be released, hopefully, sometime next year. This is our first erotica novel, and it’s co-written, which made it tons of fun and a great experience.
Emma’s Story, which still doesn’t have a name and I really do need to name it, is still in the process of being written. I will be taking a break from it in order to write Fallen from Grace in November. I’m hoping to have this novel done and completely edited by May of next year. I would love to be able to take it to DFWCon and perhaps meet with an agent over it. If not, I’m not going to cry. I have a publisher and I love her dearly.
That’s the quick and dirty update. Now to bring the title of the post in, I’ll be going to my throne room and disappearing into some much needed royal work! ttfn.
