My Ducks are Lining Up

Charade is being proofread this week. I am very excited to get this book out the door. It has been a tough one, but I learned a lot along the way.

SFFWorld has kindly agreed to do another cover reveal for me. It will go up Wednesday, October 18th, as Charade goes up for pre-sale on Amazon.

This series is going wide, so it will be available on all retailers in October. The first book of the series, Facade, will drop out of Kindle Select on October 15th. As soon as I have all the new links, they will be posted to the website for one-stop shopping. It will still be available on Amazon, just not exclusive to that retailer.

If you are on my mailing list, you will get a sneak peek of the cover a day early.

The next book in A Changed World series is coming along very well. I'm about 34,000 words into the rough draft. It's all falling into place nicely. Ah, what a delight it is when you're healthy and your brain works properly. I've been able to write this one a bit faster, but it's still looking like a December release date. I will update that if there are any changes.

When book 4 of A Changed World goes out to the beta readers, I will get back to work on the first book of the Lands of Haroon which will be a series of stand-alones in the same world.

Almost There

Book 2 of the Transmutation series is almost done. Finally. It even has a name now - Charade. This was a tough one for a bunch of reasons that have nothing to do with the story. For some reason my system failed. I sputtered and stuttered to a stop and the writing fell flat.

A big thank you to my beta readers for taking me to task on all the problems that needed to be resolved.

Happily, the third rewrite was the charm. I am getting positive feedback from my final reader. Then it goes to line editing. I am setting the release date for October 26.

Now I can set up the cover reveal and some promos for the release date.

And while I am waiting for the final reader to finish Charade, I am writing the beginning chapters to book 4 of A Changed World.

Whew!
