Shalia’s Diary – The diary starts up again tomorrow! I’m calling this storyline ‘connective tissue’. There are issues galore for Shalia to face, the biggest being how weak and unprepared she feels when it comes to guarding Anrel’s welfare. This is basically a prequel to coming adventures. So relax and enjoy Shalia’s recovery from the It, spending time with her baby girl, and getting to know her main two suitor clans. Oh yes, there may be a blast or two from the past as well...
Shalia’s Diary Book 6
And while we’re talking about Shalia, the sixth storyline is just about ready to be released in book format. If you can handle re-living the harrowing adventure with the It, you can snag your copy Friday, August 21. This delicious cover alone is worth it!
Clan Beginnings: Clan and Crown
A couple of surprises for you. First of all, that gorgeous cover. In particular, hello Egilka!
We all know what a cover means ... the book is close to release. Yes, I have been busting butt on this one over the summer, and it is already in the hands of the proofreader. The December release became November, and now it is moving up again. I am now tentatively scheduling it for September (!) but no hard date until I get the edits back. I will keep you informed, of course.
Netherworld IV: Animal Attraction – The outline of the long-delayed return of Brandilynn is done. I will start on the first draft within a couple of weeks. I have not set a release date.
Now as to the television show based on Kalquor: It fell through. Things started feeling not so good about the producer’s vision for it. I saw things heading in a direction that I didn’t think my readers wanted to see. His lack of experience with science fiction television also caused major worries for me, along with several other concerns. After a lot of soul searching and discussions with Hubs and friends, I have decided to walk away.
Some good did come out of it with a better pilot episode written to be shopped around to other producers. Who knows, maybe Kalquorians will appear on your televisions some sweet day. In the meantime, we still have the books!
Thanks to everyone for all the support and well wishes. I couldn’t ask for better readers! Much love to you all.
