Hey folks! It’s the last stop on the tour and the last day to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway for a signed copy of both books in The Creation Saga!

This interview with BooksChatter was crazy fun. Bonus features include a YouTube playlist and some cute cat photos. Enjoy, and tune back in Friday since we’ll be resuming regular posts over here.

First, we have a post on writing and when to push through a draft for all of you who follow for writing advice. Check that out over on Writers and Authors.

Next we have an interview over on T’s Stuff where I talk about why Daughter of Madness is awesome and once more admonish readers to leave a review. So, you know, maybe take a moment to leave a review?

Hope you enjoy!

Daughter of Madness: logistics edition

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted directly here. For those keeping track, we’re a little over halfway through the blog tour. I’ll be officially back here with your weekly Friday post in July. July 27th to be exact. But since I had some thoughts to share, I thought I’d check in to do a quick rundown of the publishing process for Daughter of Madness.

Release Day!!

Guys, it’s here!

hooray loki

I have worked so hard on this book for so long, and I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with myself. Really, I have no clue how to adult without this book being in the wings. Daughter of Madness is definitely some of my best work to date and I look forward to getting even better. I really hope you all enjoy this read. If you do, tell your friends.

Some housekeeping about the release, mostly fun.

  • The ebook is out, link above. The paperback may be slightly delayed due to some formatting issues which popped up this week (they were mostly my fault because of a new software I was using). Link above still works though! If you want signed copies of both books there is a raffle associated with my blog tour, linked here. So enter to win! (The drawing won’t be held until the end of the tour in July, to be fair to everyone.)
  • I am planning an audiobook release but it will be pushed separately from the print and ebook copies – I have gotten some questions on that so wanted to keep you informed. You’ll have a date when I do. Audio is a lot of work in its own right, so I wanted to take the time to be sure I did it correctly.
  • There is one more book in this series and I already have it outlined. I’m taking a break from the world to do some editing on another project and while I’m working on that I’m going to probably scratch out another novella I’ve promised myself. After that it’s back to drafting the last bit of the Creation Saga. I imagine I’ll start on it sometime around when I start on the audiobook, since that seems to be a good method for me. Updates will no doubt follow, and you’ll get them here or in the newsletter, as per the usual.

But all that is work for tomorrow. For now, I hope you enjoy Daughter of Madness. I’ll be off having a drink!

Preorders, sales, promotional graphics, oh my!

You may wonder what in the world I have been up to lately, and let me say – a lot. April is a rollercoaster and I’m not strapped in. Please expect me to be absolutely mad over here.

Currently, I’m preparing to leave for Salt Lake City (or rather, its environs) where I am attending a writing workshop called Futurescapes. It’s looks to be an amazing experience, and I’m so excited to tell you about it later if I survive the next few weeks.

That said, I have some lovely things to share with you if you haven’t already seen them on my Twitter, Tumblr, etc.

First, Daughter of Madness is up for preorder! I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago but I was not perhaps exuberant enough. Specifically, the ebook is what is up for preorder. The print book will be releasing at the same time, but you will have to wait until June 2nd to get your copy.

Speaking of June 2nd, you can get an ebook of Mother of Creation anytime before that date! I’m hoping to have it for $1.99 soon but there has been a technical glitch at Amazon so I will do a special post to update you on when that is resolved. I made a cool graphic to share to folks….someday…..

I’ll also be doing some blog tours coming up. I will crosspost those here and mostly put a hold on original content for The Bramble until those are finalized. But we still have a couple of weeks until then, as the beginning of the tour is May 7th.

Phew.

Send me kind thoughts, readers, and let’s power through!

Being sick, release dates, and other stuff

Life is hard, friends. I was sick with a terrible cold for two weeks and it threw me straight out of any kind of rhythm. I’ve been scrambling to get back on the metaphorical pony, and it’s been slow going.

You may know that it is almost April, and that I have some big things coming up in April. First, I will be at Roanoke Author Invasion on April 7th. I did this last year and it was a lot of fun, so we’ll see how it goes this year. Second, I will be traveling to Salt Lake City for a thing-that-is-writing-related-but-not-an-appearance in April from the 13th through the 16th. So that’s the first two weekends of April shot for writing things. (Not that I won’t be doing writing-related stuff, but I cannot actually write while I am doing appearances, etc. for obvious reasons.) Given that there are only two weekends left between now and then, that’s a little intimidating in terms of my timelines.

Accordingly, I’m announcing now that the release date for DAUGHTER OF MADNESS will be June 2nd. To cut the edge off of pushing it back a bit from the hoped-for April date, we now have preorders available on Amazon. This is my first time doing preorders, and I’m excited to see how it goes. You can preorder the book here.

To clarify, DoM is written, I’m just doing the fine-tuning and the formatting at this point. Being sick, however, meant that I lost two weeks on that (the dayjob and the other necessary bits of living have to come first, and when I only have limited energy that means no writing). I’ll be more sane and we’ll all be happier with the finished product this way. The perils of self-publishing and all.

I’ll have more news soon about a release event which I am very excited about and I’ll also have some cool graphics and other fun things to help get people excited leading into this process. I’ve even included a sweet banner with this post which you will have already seen if you’ve been to my Facebook or Twitter, and I plan on using that for all DoM-related posts going forward so you’ll know what you’re getting into. Enjoy!


Someday I’d like to make writing my dayjob, but I can’t do it without you. Pitch in at my Patreon or buy my books.
