I know I’m still super-terrible at keeping people in the loop regarding where my writing projects are at the moment, so… Let’s actually do an update now that I actually manage to find words to say things. >> I’m not good at this whole self-promotion business. T_T Other people, yes. I enjoy shouting their names off rooftops (on that note, Cheryl Mahoney released a new book, The Lioness and the Spellspinners, and Becca Lusher recently released the next of her Overworld shorts, Facing the Hurricane. Check them out!)
But this post is all about me. So… first of all… I’m running a special seasonal promo for The Passage of Pearl. It’s $0.99 (or 2 dollars off) for the rest of October. If you’re looking for a quick, scary read… Check it out!
I’ve also managed to figure out how to get The Princess who Didn’t Have Cake price-matched on Amazon, so now it is permafree everywhere. WHOOHOO! I’m so glad that I managed to figure that out! (It actually turned out to be pretty easy, but wow do they hide that price match contact us option deeply.)
I’ve decided that there’ll be no serial next year. I don’t have anything that’s suitable for it at the moment and we all know that if I try to serialise anything that’s not at least halfway finished before I start that I’ll end up going on hiatus right in the middle and no one wants that. (Or at least I don’t and I’m writing them, so.)
Speaking of next year! I’ve got PIP lined up for publication in early 2017. It needs some more tweaking and finalising and I’m pondering whether to try and experiment with availability and/or preordering options. That’s just a little too far into the future, though. It most likely will, however, be released in ebook and print at the same time. Yay!
And speaking of print books, I’m done fiddling with the print versions of A Promise Broken and Feather by Feather and Other Stories! They’re not published yet, so if you really wanted a print copy of them, don’t go rushing off to stores just yet! I’ll be releasing them in November and December respectively, so each can get a moment to shine.
Feather by Feather and Other Stories will get a second edition with a few added extras. This will also be the time when I reset the price, so if you want the (first edition) ebook cheaply, get it before December! It’ll also come with a new cover, so if you love Anna’s art as much as I do and way it to grace your ereader, again, get it before December.
But there we are. I have almost done what I set out to do this year! And then I accomplished a bit more. November is looming and I’d like to try a proper NaNoWriMo again. For a given value of ‘proper’ since I’m not planning on starting anything new. My plan is to continue working on DemiPrincess and get 50,000 words of that added to it. I’m thinking since it seems to like the trilogy format that it’ll want to be around 240 words, so I’ve got plenty to work on! Once November starts, I’ll be updating the word count on the front page. Probably on a weekly basis, but I’ll do my best to check in every day and share snippets. (Because that worked so well last year.) The rest of October’s writing time will be dedicated to finishing up the last bits of “I changed fundamental parts of the setting, let’s rewrite it all” and the nonfiction projects of my bilingual HEX read and the Sailor Moon (re)watch. I’ll be focusing on HEX, though. I really want to try and finish it completely before January. I also need to write one last Design Adventures post for these final proofs, of course.
