The lack of blog posts means I've been working hard lately. Here's an update:
January, I wrote 27,123 words and so far this month I've written 10,303
for a total of 37,426, which has me on track to write over 290,000
words this year. My goal for the year is 250,000, so I'm way ahead of
where I need to be for that. I committed to writing 1000 words of new
fiction a day, and with the exception of a day off here and there to
think of more stuff to write, I've been sticking to that.
Among those words are a bunch of short stories, which I'll be taking the best of and putting into collections for release. Subscribers to my email alerts will have the opportunity to get them for free, so if you haven't signed up yet, make sure you do!
also wrote a couple of Silas and Lainie short stories, a warm and fuzzy
holiday piece set between books 3 and 4, and one that comes after the
end of book 6. That one will be a freebie for people who finish book 6; I
just need to figure out how to set that up.
Speaking of book 6, I'm nearly done with this editing pass on For the Wildings.
After this will be a few clean-up passes and the proofreading. I'm
thinking it will be out late in March (it's a long book, a good bit
longer than the others in the series, so it just takes longer to edit).
To make sure you don't miss out on the release and the limited-time
special price, sign up for my email alerts.
guess I'm pushing the email signups. That's the best way to make sure
you find out when I have a new book out (and to get in on the new
release price that I run for only a few days) and also to find out about
other special deals and promotions. And don't worry, I won't spam you or share your info.
Also, I just released a box set of Urdaisunia, Chosen of Azara, and Sarya's Song.
The regular price is $8.99, which is the equivalent of a dollar off
each book, or 25% off the total regular price. So if you haven't read
these, you can get the set of three for a discount off the regular price
of buying the books separately. Or you can wait for price drops and
promotions, which will happen but I don't know when or how often. It's
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iTunes | Kobo | OmniLit | DriveThruFiction (bundle of separate books)
just this week, I started the draft of the first book in the follow-up
series to Daughter of the Wildings! Don't get too excited yet, it's
going to be a while before this is ready to come out, but it is
happening. I'm still not solid on the outline of the whole series, but
yesterday I was asking myself, "What are the absolute worst things that
can happen in this series?" and had a brilliant idea :D I love it when a
new project suddenly starts to take shape like that.
So, lots of editing, on For the Wildings and the short stories from my 1000 word a day commitment, and some fun new writing.
