Today is 12-12-12 (so now you’ll know how old this blog is when it’s still sitting here come January!). This is the last day in this century for a number like that, so I thought it might be an omen that I ought to do something.
Of course, the reason I don’t post here often is because I’m ALWAYS doing something. All day, every day. I had some funny notion that e-book publishing would allow me to set my own deadlines. Instead, I now have deadlines for more publishers than I want to count.
The latest print result is the novella in Mischief and Mistletoe pictured here. The most recent e-book is The Irish Duchess, pictured in the previous blog below. I’m currently working on a print version of Duchess and Amazon already has a print version of The English Heiress. I’m working with several printers and publishers, attempting to establish a means of printing these original titles so they can be purchased elsewhere than Amazon, but so far, Amazon offers the easiest, cheapest method. Anything else adds at least $5 to the price.
My next release will be Trouble With Air and Magic, a sequel to The Lure of Song and Magic. This is Conan’s story. Again, I’m talking to printers about offering a print version as well as the e-version. The scheduled release date is February 12, 2013 (not quite as magical a date as today’s!) I’ll offer an e-ARC copy to anyone who wants to review it on-line. I simply don’t have time to run promotion! (although if you sign up for my New Release letter, I can let you know when a book will be out)
I’m working on two more sequels, one for Evil Genius, and on Magnus’s book to follow Trouble. I have the next Rebellious Sons book written, The Notorious Atherton, but it still needs to be edited and copyedited and is scheduled for July release.
And in my spare time, I’m editing and formatting three more of my backlist titles: Devil’s Lady, All A Woman Wants, and a title that was once called Touched by Magic. Since this is often confused with my Magic series, I’ve changed that title to A Dash of Enchantment. They’ll need covers next, which means poring over millions of stock images.
Really, as much as I’m enjoying this Brave New World of e-books, it would be nice to just write books again! If I don’t get back here before then, Happy Holidays to all! Bless you for reading.
