Work continues on The Vampire and the Dragon, PrOOF Vol. 1. In order to solidify the trilogy, I’ve skipped ahead to some key points in books 2 and 3. This will ensure that no ’ret-conning’ becomes necessary if books 2 and 3 should be published as well, which is my hope.
Here’s a taste of what’s going on in PrOOF Vol 3 - The Vampire and the Djinn:
Hello, everyone! Those of you in Northeast Ohio... join me in grumbling about the weather. Still no word on my release date - Inkshares is busy with lots of books. But I have some updates!
I’m working steadily on my new manuscript, THE ENIGMA VARIATIONS, and I’m using it for my project for Camp NaNoWriMo. Look for a MindTech novella this summer, too, as I add to the collection for LOST MEMORIES.
I’ll be speaking at the Oberlin Public Library on Wednesday, May 2, about using Scrivener in your writing. If you can’t make it, but want some tips, let me know! I love it, and I’m happy to share.
Finally, I’m blogging more frequently over at Walking Identity Crisis. Are you an expert on a topic that might fit over there? Or are you a writer, and would you like me to interview you? Since I’m a librarian, my readers love to see book reviews. Let me know!
Look for more next month... when I hope it will be warmer!!
I’d wish you all a happy spring, but so far, spring seems reluctant to truly show up around here. Hopefully that will change soon!
In the meantime, I wanted to share a quick update on Shadow King...
There are now only two books ahead of Shadow King in the queue (at my last update, I think that number was seven), so things are moving along.
I’m HOPING this means a summer kick off for my project, which will get Shadow King into the hands of the Inkshares editor for the line-edit portion of development. Once we have an official kick-off, I should be able to get a better approximation of when my release date will be--and I’ll be sure to let you all know as soon as I know!
I’m very excited that we’re a few steps closer to official production! Thank you again for sticking with me through this excellent adventure. Looking forward to updating you with more news soon.
Three months from today Sister of the Circuit will launch into the world like a weird, cyberpunk baby looking for cuddles. This means many things, not the least of which is that I am looking to build the book’s launch crew, starting with my core street team.
This handful of people will be the inner circle of the launch crew, the elite of the elite -- the Sisters (or Brothers) of the Circuit if you will. Are you the sort of person that loves sharing books with your friends? Want to make a few dollars building a crew of people jazzed to see the book succeed right out of the gate? Then contact me for details!
If you’re not interested in the street team idea but still want to be part of the launch, stay tuned. I’ll have lots of fun prizes and events for those looking to help the book build a review list and social media following for launch week.
Until next time hexers, may the Code replicate eternal.
