BLACK PLATINUM Update
When your book’s outline and the book you’re writing don’t match…It’s growing like kudzu, peeps! And yes, I was brainstorming so fast I started putting stickies on my wall. Shhh, don’t tell my hubby! #sogladhenevergoesinmyoffice
The good news is there will be a bigger story in BLACK PLATINUM than I had originally planned. But that means that I need to add more to BLACK PLATINUM which will segue into another book, because one storyline leads into the other. These books will be full length novels, don’t worry! They’ll just have a connecting thread.
But that does mean that I’m pushing out the release date of BLACK PLATINUM to late Early May. And you’ll learn the new title of the next book in the back of BLACK PLATINUM!
So, long story short, two Sebastian and Talia books are coming up. Yay!
iBooks’ preorder date will be updated to reflect this change.
AWAKEN and BLACK PLATINUM release updates…
ALMOST DONE! Woot!! If you’ve been following me on FB you’ve seen the daily word count I’ve been cranking out on AWAKEN. I’m ONE scene away from finishing Ethan & Nara’s final book (it’s well over 100K). I do have edits, which usually go quickly, but with iBooks’ holiday shut down for uploading books starting today and going thru 1/8/17 and Kobo closing for uploads early too, I can’t release a book on some retailers and not others. Oh man, the emails I would get from unhappy readers if they couldn’t get the book on their retailer of choice!
All this means that AWAKEN’s release is out of my control until later in January. So I’ll be setting AWAKEN’s release on ALL retailers to go live on 1/24/17. I will share PREORDER links for each retailer as they become available.
<— Did you miss the cover reveal! 🙂
Now that AWAKEN will release in January, I won’t be releasing BLACK PLATINUM in the same month. A ton of work goes into releasing a book once it’s ready to be published. I’m a one-woman show. No assistant. It’s just me doing all the work that a publisher would normally do for an author. Since AWAKEN is releasing in January, BLACK PLATINUM will release February (2/28/17).
I’ve never had a book take me so long to write, but AWAKEN has definitely done that! Truth time, there were a few threads I considered cutting so the book wouldn’t take as long to write, but Ethan and Nara (HUGS, I love these two!) deserve to have their full story told…including their families and all that entails, so I kept the threads and weaved them in. That means you’re getting a honking long book, which does take longer to write. It was supposed to come out tomorrow, but it’s not done. Argh, Ethan and Nara…they just have so much story in them! It IS coming soon. I just need to finish up the end, then edits. So you WILL get Ethan and Nara’s story this year, DEC 2016. FINALLY! Bare with me just a tad longer…unless you want me to leave it right here…
Fair warning, this book will tear at your heart quite a few times. AWAKEN is almost here!
Be sure to add AWAKEN to your Goodreads to read shelf! 🙂
