I just finished the first draft of Only in Whispers. I’m so excited; when I lulled after chapter four, I really thought there was no way I was going to finish it. I’m so glad that I have, because I wouldn’t have felt right if I’d kept myself from sharing that story with the world.
Tentative publication date is in February, but that’s VERY tentative. I know that I need a lot of proofreading as well as changing/adding scenes, so editing it is going to take a lot of work. Still, I should have time come winter to really get to work on it, though November will be spent writing Colors of The Sky. Hopefully. We’ll see.
I’ve sold a few copies of the ebook and a few paperbacks. I’m not ready to quit my day job, but I’d like to thank everyone who is supporting me by buying my book!
Now that Kiss of The Fey is out, I thought I’d tell you a little more about my future plans. As you can tell from my “Books” page, there are two novels I’m working on. The first is Only in Whispers. Only in Whispers is much darker than Kiss of The Fey, so I’m unsure of how long it will take to be released. I’m working on finishing the first draft, then I’ll probably set that aside for a little while just to let to stew before I reread it. It contains non-consensual sex, violence, kidnapping–all kinds of dark stuff. There’s also a male/male relationship which is just as much of a focus as the female/male relationship. I wanted to write something different, and I did. It’s very different.
The second book I’m working on is Colors of The Sky. This is going to be much more light-hearted than Kiss of The Fey, though the protagonist does have a dark secret. However, she’s very naive and trusting, and that gets her into trouble. I’m not starting on this until November, but I already know that it’s going to be a very fun book.
Now that I’ve published one book, I can’t wait to publish more! I think I’ve caught the publishing bug. Now I just need my writing to keep up with my ideas 🙂
I’m super excited to be getting closer to the release of Kiss of The Fey! I’m reading over the book for some last minute tweaks just to dot my i’s and cross my t’s. I’m really happy with how the book turned out. It’s been a long process, almost four years from the first form of the story until now, but I’m glad I stuck with it. It was worth it.
I’m also working on my second book, and I’m about halfway done with the first draft. I want to get it written as soon as possible. After getting Kiss of The Fey ready for publishing, I realized how much I enjoy all the work! I’m glad I’m publishing right as school starts. All the homework should distract me from the big gaping hole that the editing and formatting previously filled.
The official release date of Kiss of The Fey will be September 1st! I’m excited to finally share my work with the world! While you’re waiting for the release, you can read the prologue and first chapter here.
I’m wrapping things up with Kiss of The Fey! I just need to put on the finishing touches and it’ll be good to go. I haven’t decided on a publishing date yet, but it will be this summer. I just need to get it out to some pre-readers to get a general opinion of it. I’m excited to finally share this novel with the world!
