What’s going on with me?
I have a few right now and while July slowed me down due to some unexpected and unavoidable outside issues, I’m back on track with them right now. Working my butt off, so to speak.
BlOOD OF AN ANCIENT, book two in my Beri O’Dell series, is releasing in two months, October 22. It just went up for pre-order pretty much everywhere, but there is a long and ‘kind of’ revealing excerpt up at Samhain Publishing here if you’re curious. It’s a little bit of a spoiler if you haven’t read DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD, but if you have, this might cheer you some.
Review copies have started going out . I’ve already heard back from one reviewer who really seemed to like it and I also heard from a beta reader who did as well. This is such a nervy part of the process—when that new book first goes out. You hope readers enjoy it and you know there will be those who won’t. It’s easy to accept this if you look at it logically. We are all different, with varied tastes and life experiences that have helped shape those tastes.
Now emotionally? Let’s face it. Authors would love for everyone to love their books. LOL.
I will hopefully be able to share some more fun news soon. I’m still waiting on the go ahead from the publisher. Keeping this one to myself has been tough because it involves a publisher I tried very hard to work with in my early writing days. And pretty much since, as well. Oh, I can’t wait to share!
So stay tuned for fun news and for an early eARC giveaway of BLOOD OF AN ANCIENT a little closer to release date.
