So far, this year has been one to bring about many changes: new jobs, new challenges, new ideas, and new projects. Nothing is without hard work and dedication, but sometimes I wish that wasn't the case because I could sure use a break! But seriously, I've hand to make some calls this year and there's definitely a big one coming down the pipe.
LEGACY OF SECRETS:
I've decided to revamp the series this year as part of the ten year anniversary! The books will be revamped, edited, updated (maybe even extended), and re-released. They will have new covers and all of the current five will be released along with the next installment that I've been working on recently. I will still be adding another two or three books, depending on how the story flows, but they will come out next year.
The current versions will remain available on Amazon for a few months, but I will pull them a few months before release. The old versions will be obsolete and I don't want to cause confusion. I will be looking for some alpha and beta readers, so be on the lookout for those posts. All of those who read for me will get signed ARCs from me and I might even decide to do a few contests. Who knows?!
Book two will be published this year, come hell or high water! My goal is to work on this story next and have it be available before I begin revamping LoS. I've had it buzzing around my head for a while and I'm actually pretty excited about doing something so different from what I'm used to. Fantasy is amazing and I love creating worlds, but the years of binge watching Law & Order: SVU has prepared me for cop drama so I need to cash in on that! XD
A SHIFTER'S TALE:
I will be pull these novellas and instead publishing them on Wattpad! I realized that with the nature of those stories being relatively short, they would be better suited for Wattpad than Amazon. I will be adding Thea's Reawakening this weekend and then I'll add Layla's Vindication probably within the next two-three weeks. I will continue this series as a side project, but will try to post new tales at least three times a year.
I'm pretty excited about some new stories that have come to mind that I are only in the conceptual phase as of the moment. Unfortunately, I won't be getting to writing these new stories until next year, but I will post updates when I have them. If everything is completed sooner than I expect, I'll be able to get crackin' on some new stories!
Well, that's all I've got, I think. I stay the most active on Instagram so be sure to follow me there. Also, sign up for my newsletter so you will be notified of all the new releases and changes before everyone else! I'll be looking for some folks who might want to lend a hand in various capacities this year, so please follow me!
See you around!!
It's been some time since I wrote last, my apologies, as life has managed to get in the way again. I'm in the midst of finding a new job and trying to finish a book during Camp Nanowrimo, so things are H E C T I C! I'm hoping it will start dying down as the month is coming to a close.
I don't have much news, save for Blood Promise being completed soon. I've managed to screw that one up a time or two and had to start over, but I'm on the right track finally. As far as the remaining books in Legacy of Secrets, it's still a toss up, but I'm aiming for only two - hopefully.
I have other WIPs down the pipeline, all hopefully to be completed with relative ease. This year still has many months and I'm looking forward to publishing as many books as I can this year. This book has thrown me off a bit, but I will get back on track as soon as I'm done!
I've also networked/partnered with a new phenomenal group of women - Women Writing Fiction. Each of us is at a different stage of our writing careers, but the group is empowering and supportive and all the things you want in a network! You'll see me sharing and blogging about the group and their books, as well as my own, and I encourage you to read their work! They're oh-so-talented and range from Wattpad writers, to self-published, to traditionally published, and even some hybrids. A good portion of the women are embarking on this publishing journey for the first time and are bringing fresh voices and faces to the indie world. Keep an eye out for some new website content specific to Women Writing Fiction, soon!
I'll be back soon. Read on, my friends!!
I'm a writer, a mother, a wife, a friend, a sister, and a daughter. My journey as a published author is in full swing and I'm inviting all my friends along for the ride!
