Bundle Love

Third book in the Witherheart seies is almost done and I'm so happy! I've been working like a dog (if dogs could write) and am loving it. It needs some serious reworking, but the direction is solid. I should have it out by the end of December or a little bit after (I might miss Christmas, though I'm trying my damndest).

I haven't put any of my Witherheart books on Amazon yet, entirely because Witherheart #1 is free, and Amazon doesn't condone free books.Right now they're available through Smashwords and their distributors (ibooks, B&N, Kobo, etc). I'm thinking about putting all three books out together as a bundle (though I'd rather not do that) as soon as the third one has been cleaned up. I'm looking forward to this Christmas!

Halfway Through #3

It's been a while, I know, but I am still working. The third book in the Witherheart series is halfway done and I'm so happy to be working on it. The third book gives heavy focus to Kegan and the other boys since Anjette is captive and searching for a way out. Kegan is struggling with his change which I find to be one of the most important features in this installment, and something I want to see unfold for myself, as it will dramatically affect his relationship with Anjette.

The other books I've published are up on smashwords, but the Witherheart series is not on Amazon.

Second Witherheart Done

The second book in the Witherheart series is finally done, and I'm so happy. I just got through with my third or fourth editing. I need a cover and a title, and then I can post, though I've been busy doing technical research (bus schedules, formulas, etc), not to mention I went and re-edited the first Witherheart. I fixed some very minor grammatical errors and changed a few words, but other than that, I left it pretty much the same. I can't afford to change it too much--not without a proper editor.

Look forward to the new one.

Almost Done--again

I am so happy to earnestly be working on the second book in the Witherheart trilogy (or at least I'm aiming to make it into a trilogy). Work and so many other things have been getting in the way, and for a long time my motivation and inspiration was nowhere to be found. It's so hard to write effectively in that state of mind, but I thought about it every day. The second book (I've yet to come up with a working title) is a lot more brutal and plot oriented than the first one, the trails much harsher with severe consequences. Zachary comes back in this one. His attachment to his cousin grows and morphs, which has been fun and exciting for me as the author to develop. A new boy shows up who becomes very important. Writing his character gives me flashbacks of the Mortal Instruments series because his personality is snarky and egotistical, but he's also a fighter.

The book is fast on it's way to ending. I have it planned out already and am very much looking forward to writing it. If only I didn't have to sleep! I've been rereading Dracula in whatever spare time I have, and Steven King's On Writing, which I haven't touched in Lord knows how long. Reading is just as fun as writing, and when I'm doing one it always makes me want to to the other. A glutton is what I am.
