Shalia’s Diary – It’s been a wild ride, hasn’t it? The storyline you’ve been reading wraps up this month. We’ll finally make it to the end of this dark portion of Shalia’s tale. Now for the bad news: I am nowhere near finished with the next portion of Shalia’s Diary. How far behind am I? At least six weeks – and that is a kind estimate. It could be 3 months before the blog picks up again. Blame the year and a half of re-releases slowing me up when it comes to writing Shalia’s Diary. I simply haven’t had time to devote to working on it, especially since it’s a freebie. I will keep you updated on when it will resume. Meanwhile, enjoy these last few entries that will wrap up what will eventually become Book 4.
Clans of Kalquor 4: Alien Salvation – The rights are mine and the book with its pretty new cover is out. Once again, do not buy this re-issue if you already have it. The cover was the only thing truly changed. If you are a new reader, you can currently pick up Alien Salvation at Amazon, Smashwords, and CreateSpace (for print). Nook pulled it’s horrid formatting nightmare on me again, so either get your Nook-compatible copy from Smashwords or you can wait for Smashwords to load it to B&N. Seriously, when are they going to fix that platform?
Netherworld I: Drop Dead Sexy – Rights revert in August. Edits are done and the formatting is at long last fixed. No plot changes were made, but it reads MUCH better in its new incarnation. If you are a fan of the Netherworld series, with 10,000 additional words it may be worth your while to replace this one when it is re-issued.
First Mataras: Michaela – Guess who wrote during her vacation? I have hit the 3/4 mark on the first draft ... which now stands at 103,000 words. Yes, it is another huge beast of a book in the making. Because it is going on so long, I still can’t put a release date on it. But I am daring to dream of October. Maybe.
Clans of Kalquor 5: Alien Slave – I have begun to work on edits for this one’s re-release. Its contract runs out in November. So far, so good – no major changes seem to be springing up yet. Hopefully Dani and Clan Gelan will be as kind as Clan Bacoj was.
Clans of Kalquor 9: Alien Indiscretions – I get a chance every now and then to play with this one. With everything else slowing me down, I have to think it won’t be out until 2015.
Thanks for hanging in there despite things going so slow. Take care!
