Remember that pinprick ray of light in the dark tunnel I told you about? Well, it has encompassed the darkness. The Veiled Path to Destiny has reached The End, and has been passed off to the editor. YAY!
Barring a total “nice try. try again.” from the editor, the projected release date is…July 8th!
Why so long out, you might ask. Well…the editor has it now. I expect to have it back in my hand in a couple of weeks. I will then go through the edits, make the corrections, add, rewrite, as suggested by said editor. Then a final read through is done before it goes to be formatted. All of this takes time, but is essential in making sure the story is presented to you…the reader…in its best light. I hope you will find it to be worth the wait.
The cover reveal will be coming soon. Suzanna Lynn of Funky Book Designs did an amazing job and I can’t wait for you to see it.
Until next week…Happy Reading!

Lately I feel like I’ve used that hashtag to the point that it should be falling apart. Guess not, cuz it still works just fine. 🙂
I wrapped one WIP Sunday morning just before 2:00 am. I spent most of the day getting all my ducks in line to give to the accountant for taxes, and then…like I have been for weeks, sat back down at the desk to work on yet another tale until the wee hours of the morning. See…I meant it when I said I was going to try to make up ground this year.
I have set an aggressive schedule for myself and with a little help from the family (insert, less than 2 interruptions per hour), I’m on track to get there. By the end of April I will have a book, a boxed set, and an anthology out. I have a novella planned for May, another book for July, and yet another book for mid-fall in the midst of Con-crazy. A second anthology is scheduled for October as well. The only unknown now is a story that kicked me awake and has been taunting me to get into the mashup. The jury is out on if that will happen in ’17 as well or not.
Come on…I’m crazy but sheesh.
Add to the mix that professionally I’m up for a promotion, which almost certainly translates to relocation, making ‘aggressive’ is a mild word. Beyond all this…I will be re-booting Book of Time with a new cover, and Book of Change got a facelift too. If everything comes together, next weeks post will be GORGEOUS!
Last, there’s a cover overhaul planned for Viva Zapata & the Magic 8-Ball as I’ve gotten tons of feedback about the cover and the need for it to be more indicative of the subject…I heard…I’m trying to line that up too.
Signing season begins in just over a month with Booking in Biloxi…do you have tickets? Do you want a pair?? Find me on Fb to claim a set.
I need to get back to words, cuz you know…they don’t write themselves. Until next time, read something good and share with a friend. See you on the pages.
