AW3 shadowfallsOkay, so I’m working on a change to these Writer’s Life updates, and this is not it. However, it’s getting me back into the habit of getting these posts daily again. But then, I also slept until after 8 am today, when I typically get up at 5 or so, so that’s not exactly a great start either. When it changes, you’ll know it. It’ll hopefully be a big deal to this site. 😀

ANYWAY! I’m patiently waiting for Apocalypse Witch 3 to come back one last time with approval, and then I should have it released this weekend. After that? I plan on teasing the 3 book set of Apocalypse Witch (the cover is amazing, if I do say so myself), and then Spilling Blood 12. That’s all happening in the next three weeks (a book a week, finally!) Also, I have a pen name novella in the editing process I intend to release this week too. So despite sharing my time elsewhere (I’m looking at you, Post Office 😉 ) I’ve got projects finally reaching completion. I haven’t touched any new short stories in a month, and probably won’t until May.

And also for today? I’ll be enjoying lunch with the winners of the Broken Things presentation and essay contest from the Magic Valley High School for their One Book One School program! If you haven’t read Broken Things, I personally think you should, becauseI wrote it and kind of like it a lot. Click on the cover to go to Amazon.

Apocalypse Witch 3 Update

Sign up here to get an email when my next book is released: http://eepurl.com/bmlfd

This is just a quick update on Apocalypse Witch 3. One of my proofreaders feels the book needs expanded in several places, and I’m inclined to agree. That’s the kind of feedback I like from my proofreaders. Though that means it will be a bit longer before release, it also means a longer book. As always, click the email sign-up below if you want to be the first to be notified upon its release. Honestly, it’s not that far away.

On a different note, I’m also thinking of changing my Writer’s Life posts. I’m having difficulty juggling writing and working for the post office, so I’m trying to restructure my time to make it all work. Stay tuned. 😉

Writing Update

I’ve been quiet for about a month, but I’ve been busy. Here’s what’s going on.

Every spare moment of my writing time has gone to Apocalypse Witch for the last month, going through the entire series and making little improvements, and adding a touch of foreshadowing here and there. Books 1 and 2 will have an update this weekend (approximate, based on when I get the book back from my editing/proofreading team). Around the same time, Apocalypse Witch 3 will go live. The conclusion to the 3 book story arc will be complete!

First of all… here’s the cover of Apocalypse Witch Book 3!

(I also have the cover for the bundle, but I’m saving it until closer to release)

On the same note, about a week after book 3 is released, I’ll release the Complete Trilogy in a bundle. I’m going to push to have the paperback out around the same time.

Spilling Blood 12 is also complete and will now be my focus. The editing won’t take too long on this one. I don’t know if I want to stagger my releases, or release Spilling Blood as early as next week also. I will be writing Spilling Blood 13 next week.

As for Hungry Gods? Yikes! This is a massive editing process and I’m not sure when I will focus on it, though I need to soon. I plan on revisiting the entire series again, making sure all three novels flow together. That’s about 160,000 words, so it isn’t a weekend project – more like a month. O.o

I wish I could say all of my time is going to writing, but a lot of the Post Offices have lost their subs around Southern Idaho, so I’ve been working everywhere, severely limiting my time. I’m just a substitute also, and actually have more free days than most postal workers, but I’ve been busier for the last three weeks or so than normal.

Tomorrow I will be at a library conference as a vendor, peddling my wares. 🙂

So anyway, that’s that. With Apocalypse Witch releasing soon, I’ll have more updates. Plus I need to look at the last three months and how it panned out.
