Hello from wind-and-rain-swept Georgia. Gotta love those tropical storms that come up through the Gulf to deliver us a smack a state away. I’ve got tree limbs! Lots and lots of tree limbs all over my yard.
Before the clean-up effort begins, I’ll share the latest and greatest in my corner of Writing World. First of all, did you catch my interview on the Romancing the Book site? Head on over and check it out!
But let’s talk books now, because that’s what you’re wondering about. Here we go on the latest roundup:
Shalia’s Diary Book 9 – The book is finally written. One more edit run, and I can move on to formatting. I’ve never been so happy to see the end of a storyline. I was starting to wonder if I’d ever get this one done. I’m now looking at about mid-October for a release date, with the blog starting back up a week after. Here’s a tasty little tease of what’s coming:
Shalia is at last face to face with her happily-ever-after. Well…maybe. Clans Seot and Aslada vie for her love. Both can give her and her daughter Anrel lives Shalia never dreamed of. Both offer opportunities for career and happiness. Only one can give her what she’s always dreamed of…a mother free of illness.
In her latest adventure, Shalia must juggle her love life and her responsibilities to her mother Eve. Nothing is turning out quite the way she imagined, however. Two clans are determined to have her for their mate, but are they the right men for her? Meanwhile, her mother’s rocky road to recovery is driving her insane. Clashes old and new threaten Shalia’s hopes for the relationships she’s fought so hard for.
What’s a woman to do when the fairytale refuses to offer a happy ending? When it’s Shalia Monroe, anything and everything.
Clans of Kalquor 1: Alien Embrace – The international release is now available from Totally Bound Publishing. I’ve still got to get off my arse and update my website, but you can grab the links right here and now: Amazon UK, Germany, Canada, Australia, and France. Snag it in paperback worldwide as well.
Portals to Risnar: Not of This World – I'm still waiting to hear back from publishers. Apparently this is prime time for vacation for editors. Everyone is supposed to be back in their offices after the U.S. Labor Day weekend, so hopefully I’ll have something to report soon. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Clan Beginnings: Clan and Command – Joy! I finally wrapped up the outline and started the first draft of this book. It’s always exciting to embark on a new adventure, and Piras, Kila, and Lokmi are providing plenty of excitement (in many different ways, wink). I am not setting a release date at this time because with cyber-schooling my son, my schedule is packed beyond belief. But my goal is to get the book out before the end of the year. So look forward to Shalia 9 in October and this one soon after.
Bring on autumn. I’m tired of sweating and storms. Have a great September, everyone!
