Jacqui Castle's latest update for The Chasm

Apr 21, 2021

Hi everyone! I apologize that it’s been a while since I’ve checked in. As you can imagine, publication timelines have taken a hit along with everything else during coronavirus. Books that should have come out this past year, are now gearing up for release this summer and fall, and late fall books are being pushed into next spring. A large part of this past year has been learning to roll with and make the best of what life throws at us, so it’s all good! And now, finally, I have an exciting announcement for you! The Seclusion II will be released as part of next winter’s catalog on MARCH 1, 2022!   

Now that it officially has an ISBN and ordering info is starting to be circulated to book buyers and libraries, it should become available for preorder through major outlets in the near future. We’re starting to put together our marketing and event campaign, and a great perk of a release next March is that maybe by then, we can celebrate in person once more!

On a personal note, as some of you may know, I’ll be starting my MFA in Writing through Vermont College of Fine Arts this summer. I’m incredibly appreciative to have two years to put my fiction writing front and center and to learn under such respected voices in the field. And no, this doesn’t mean I’ll be moving to Vermont. It is a low residency program with a couple of visits a year and the rest from home as I juggle working, writing, and being the parent of two kiddos.
On the author-event front, I’ll be participating in Library Journal’s Day of Dialog on May 6th alongside a panel of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers, so if there are any librarians on this list, please tune in! 

That’s it for now, but I’ll be in touch soon. Now all of the fun stuff begins - cover reveals, arc releases, etc.

In constant appreciation of all of you,
