And Done!

Posted by on Aug 1, 2012 | 1 comment

The second book in the Broods world first draft has been officially completed. The title is now Marked by Odin. It’s currently in the very capable hands of my editor, Lynn McNamee of Red Adept Publishing. It came in at right around 59,000 words. I expect that to grow a bit in the second draft. Unlike most writers I generally add in each subsequent draft rather than remove. I think Broods fans will be happy with book 2, I know I am. I’m still targeting November 20th as the official release date for this one, the one year anniversary of the Broods release. There will be a really...

Hmm, while I’m here, I might as well give a few more pieces of news. I know I’ve been lax in posting lately, but that’s because I’m working my butt off trying to finish the second Broods book. There are a lot of surprises in store for book two, things I didn’t even know were going to happen until they flew out the ends of my fingers. I am just about done now, just putting a final...

Starting Over

Posted by on Jun 1, 2012 | 4 comments

I’ve written around 30k words so far this year. My goal was 300k for the year. Clearly I am no longer going to make my pretty aggressive goal. That’s fine. I’m not even going to worry about it. Those of you who know me even a little know that’s not true, but let’s suspend disbelief for a moment. What have I done right? I’ve gotten 2500+ words on the board every month, which is better than last year. I got my second book ready for publication. Announcement very soon on that, I promise! I finished a novelette that I’ve been trying to finish off for...

Lots of great news to share so I’ll get right to it. First, the ARCs for Elements of Rebellion are ready in .mobi and .epub formats. I’m still confirming formatting and making a last read-through, but I’m ready to let it go out the door. Anyone interested in a review copy can request one now, just go to the About page and send me a message through the form there. Pdf will be a bit longer I’m afraid, but I’ll update when it’s ready. Right now I’m targeting May 20th as the official release date. So it’s very clear for all the Broods fans, this is...
