Is it already March? Hard to believe that we’re already in the 3rd month of 2019. Seems like yesterday it was just January. Time’s going by, though, and I have some exciting news to share.
1st, I’ve signed with Crazy Ink Publications to re-release Darkness Descending. This will be a whittled down, re-edited version of the Signet mass market released in 2011. I was never happy with that version of the book, and feel it was overly long and repetitive. Now that the rights have been returned from the original publisher, it’s time to go through and do the book right. I know there were errors, too, and I have addressed those based on reviewer and reader remarks. Trust me, a writer never forget when someone points out an error in a book. I’ve done my best to correct those!
2nd, I’m working on Siren’s Desire, the first book of the Ocean Deep series, and the second generation Mer. The first book begins with Gabriella Randall, one of the twins born to Kenneth and Tessa Randall (Siren’s Call is their book, by the way). I’m excited about this one, as I have waited a long time to get the rights back to all three original books. Siren’s Desire was recently returned, and all 3 book have been re-released.
Also in the works is Ashes to Ashes, the 5th Eternity book. So, things are happening. Just a little slower than I imagined they would. Of course, families, jobs and illness gets in the way… part of life and something I am sure you are all dealing with, too!
Hoping everyone is staying well and warm. Here in NM, it’s freezing cold. So much for Phil’s prediction that winter was ending early. I think he was wrong…
After a year of publishing and distributing through Smashwords, I have decided to focus on a single platform, Amazon and enroll all my eBooks in the Kindle Unlimited program. Right now, titles through vendors such as B&N, Kobo, Apple, etc… are coming down. Books will also be in print.
Thanks for your patience as I go through the process!
PS: Siren’s Desire has been re-released and is now on sale, and is the 1st book enrolled in KDP select. 🙂
Well, even though I had high hopes for January 2019, it didn’t turn out that way. The first day started off with a blown heater on the coldest day ever. Needless to say, you can not get a repairman out on the holiday, and it was a horribly cold start to the new year. So, officially, day 1 sucked. By day 3, I was totally broke, having to write a nice check to cover said expense. What a start. Of course, it had to get worse. So far, we have had a 14 hour trip to the ER, a pet put down for illness, and my laptop and work bag stolen…from work. As for writing? Well, what’s that? It seems every time I get started on a new project something in “real” life pops up to suck away my time and concentration.
Now that January is moving on, in a few days, to February, I am hoping things will settle down and I can get back into the swing of writing new books. I have the 5th Eternity book started, along with a beginning for Siren’s Heart, the first book of my 2nd generation mermaid series, tagged Ocean Deep. With the rights to Siren’s Desire coming back to me from NAL, the last of my NY books are now all officially mine and I can do what I want with them. 🙂 I’ve also got a stack of other projects in the works. Just need time to sit down and be a writer again. Let’s hope that happens, and soon!
