As you know, I post on this blog mostly to update my readers on the ins and outs of what I’m doing. If you expect anything else, you’ll probably be disappointed 80% of the time. I will occasionally post some deep thoughts or an update on cats or horses, but the majority of what I post is about my books and writing.
Just wanted to get that disclaimer out there, since this post focuses on books.
I am privileged to inform you that my books are finding their way into the Coffee Time Romance bookstore. If you’re a member there, you’ll find my books listed here: http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/BookStore/prairie-star-publishing-c-146. I’ve put up a linked image on my books page on my website also.
As far as writing goes, I am in the middle of a round of edits on Soriel right now with my WIP put aside for a short time so I can focus on this. I can not write one story and edit another. My brain can’t switch between the two modes like that, so DA2 is waiting with 13K words on it (Yay! Good progress!). I’ll get back into that after this round of edits.
And that’s another thing you may be missing out on. As a reward to my dedicated readers, I’ve selected three fans from my Starfire Angels Facebook page for a special assignment. They will have the honor of reading Soriel this month as an ARC but also with the request that they provide feedback to help polish the story. They will remain anonymous, but this is one of the many fun things we do on the page. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to “like” it if you like the series!
Last of all, I’ve noticed that sales of At The Water’s Edge have been pretty good and have had one request for a sequel. I’d like to go ahead with writing out the story which I’ve outlined already as a second book in that world. I have a trilogy planned but wasn’t sure it was worth the trouble. I want to write it, however, and now see that it might be worth the effort. I may end up going into that after edits on Soriel instead of going right back into DA2. Either way, I’ll be putting out three new stories in 2013; but I can’t say right now what order that will be, except that Soriel will be out in the first couple of months of the new year.
Lots of exciting things coming!
And be sure to join the Soriel release party all the month of January, on this blog and on the SA Facebook page mentioned above. I am adding even more giveaway prizes! If you want to host me on your blog, email me at melanie_nilles AT yahoo DOT com.
ps–I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. It’s convenient for staying in touch with family, friends, and readers, but I hate it at the same time and could only wish for a better alternative. Google+ isn’t there yet, but you can find me there too.
