Last week was awful for anything business or writing related, and I gave up trying halfway through the week. I decided to take a mini-break to recharge my creative batteries, do some much needed reading, and to figure out my new schedule.
Due to the family issues I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had to cut back on my work hours so I can focus more of my time on my family. Then in February, I decided to put the cover design aside to focus on my writing because I would really like to follow my Publishing Schedule this year rather than create awesome covers for authors. It is, after all, why I started this journey in 1996.
I have a few projects in the works…
Co-Authoring The Rancher’s Wife with Ruth Ann Nordin
Ruth and I are once more working on The Rancher’s Wife and are happier about how it is shaping up now that we’ve had the chance to step back and take a good look at it. We’re still looking at a January 2016 release date, however, it should be ready for pre-order before then.
Co-Writing Forbidden Alliances with Inna Don
Forbidden Alliances, the 2nd short story in the Escaping Hell Series, that I’m working on with Inna, is now done and in the process of being edited. It is scheduled for release in April 2015 and is ready for pre-order in the Amazon stores right now.
Continuing to write The Rebel’s Bride
The pace will be slower on this book then the others, but I have no plans to publish this story before February 2016. I’d also like to take my time with this series as it has a little more complex plot line. I will let everyone know when the pre-order links are up for this story.
Children of Khaos Re-Brand
While I have no intention of completely re-doing them, I’ve learned a lot in the years since publishing My Lord Hades, and plan to re-brand the covers. I’m also enlisting the help of an editor and proofreader that have proved to be better than those I’ve paid to do the job in the past. Please be aware that this process will take time as I want to continue to get new books out while revamping the old ones.
New Release Mailing Lists
I’ve finally got my New Release mailing lists set up. In the next few months I will be sending exclusive content to those who sign up.
