What’s up? Well, I’ll tell you

As some of you may already know if you follow me on Twitter, I have finished my new story The Hunting Party, which is the first book in a new series called Full Moon Rituals. I have planned 3 books in this series and will probably only write 3… probably.

The Hunting Party will be released by Siren-bookstrand in May. It is currently set for May 7th, but the date isn’t necessarily set in stone just yet.

My next main project is, well, two main projects actually. I am currently working on a paperback release of my first three Solomon’s Pride books which I have decided to call Volume 1 πŸ˜› I already have a wonderful proofcopy which I am going through, weeding out all those embarrassing mistakes that should have been weeded out earlier, but I am not altering any plot, just changing a few words here and there and fixing the occasional typo. After I am done going through it (nearly there… almost nearly there) I will also have to tweak the cover a bit, but for the most part I am quite happy with what I’ve done there πŸ™‚

THEN: part 2

  • Returning Zeke – Solomon’s Pride, book 6 ❀

The runthrough of the first books in the series is helping me freshen up on all things Solomon ^_^ so that is definitely a bonus, and while there have been some plotting, maybe even some typing, I haven’t officially Officially started it yet, but I have started it, unofficially.

After that, I have mentioned in a previous post on my top WIPs that the next in line is something else entirely, followed by something else entirely. Still keen on writing them! but at the same time I really want to start on book 2 of my Full Moon Rituals series, so I’ll just have to see what direction I am pulled when finishing up Returning Zeke. Potentially, as my story Saying yes to coffee, is a shorter story, I might just write this alongside Returning Zeke as a project to work on if I ever get stuck. Saying yes to coffee – is the first book in a series of short-ish stand alones that I will be self-publishing, and funnily enough I already have a cover for the two first books in that one ^_^

Top 5 WIP

I thought I’d add a Top 5 of my Works in Progress. I probably have a list down to the floor if you include my ideas in progress, but these are my Top 5 (As in, most likely the things I’ll write first, or am currently working on. Hopefully, I’ll get to work on all of them throughout 2018.) Of course, things might change later on, but for now, I consider these my Top WIP.

  1. Β The Hunting Party (Fullmoon Rituals, book 1) – Currently my main project
  2. Returning Zeke (Solomon’s Pride, book 6) – Currently plotting inbetween working on The Hunting Party
  3. Saying yes to Coffee (An invitation, book 1) – A series of shorter stand-alone stories centered around an exclusive “dating” service company. I’ll probably work on this one alongside Returning Zeke to keep things going if I get stuck on something.
  4. Forgiveness (Blood demons, book 1) – Really excited about this series, it is quite a different setting from what I normally write.
  5. Hm, this one is probably a toss up between Blood demons, book 2 and Full moon rituals, book 2, or possibly An invitation, book 2… We’re definitely talking a sequel here πŸ˜› Or a number 1 for an entirely new story… hm… probably should have made this list a Top 4 instead πŸ˜›

 

Other news:

  • I am still aiming at getting my Solomon’s Pride books out on Smashwords, but it is going to take longer than I expected. The Smashwords Style guide is literally 117 pages and aimed at an earlier word program than what I’m using. So it is going to happen, but it’s going to take some time.
  • As soon as Returning Zeke is completed, I’ll start working on having the Solomon’s Pride books released in paperback on Amazon, in volumes of 3 stories.

 

2017 sum-up + a delayed Christmas gift

This has been a big year for me πŸ™‚ My top acheivement is that I now hold a Master’s degree in comparative literature. Another acheivement is that I have stepped into the realm of self-publishing which has allowed me to catch up on my Solomon’s Pride books and finally getting to republish the works in the series that needed to be and get me to the point where I could finally publish the newest book, Biting Liam. There still remains 1 book to be written in this series (+ 3 sort of spinoffy stand-alony stories – but those are for laters) The 6th book in the Solomon’s Pride series is called “Returning Zeke” I have a fair bit plotted out – most of the big stuff, but very little actual writing has taken place with that one yet. Next on my list now, except giddyingly awaiting the German translations of Solomon’s Pride, is getting those books (the english versions) released on Smashwords so that those of you who have trouble with the kindle formats can get to read them through there. (I should have already taken care of this, but after finishing up my degree I’ve been on a recharging break. Sleeping, celebrating the holidays and playing with my newly adopted kitty, Eddie ^_^ ) After fixing that and toying around with some cover-creating for a future print volume of Solomon’s pride (sets of 3 stories) I will be finishing up my story “The Hunting Party” which is the first of three stories in my Fullmoon Rituals series – I started writing this a long time ago, but got sidelined when I came up with the idea for “Blood of a Leo” and got caught up in my Solomon’s Pride world. Not to worry though, I am about 4/5 through, and as soon as that is complete and submitted to Siren Bookstrand, I will get started on “Returning Zeke”, which brings me back to my little gift: A COVER REVEALΒ

Just some info :)

Currently, Biting Liam is in its last round of proofreading by a friend of mine and everything looks good so far for a last week of November release. I also wanted to share that since I’ve gotten som feedback from people who can’t get my books on kindle, I will soon(ish) be publishing them on Smashwords as well which should make it easier for people to get the right formats. I probably won’t get it done before mid to late December though and I need to make some covers for the ones that are out and that I don’t own the cover-rights for – I will most likely publish Blood of a Leo and The Link that Binds together in one for Smashwords and I might do the same for book 3 and 4 (Heart of Dame + Keeping Zane) while the final two, one by one (So people who get their ebooks from Smashwords won’t have to wait for me to complete book 6 before getting to read Biting Liam.

Other news, with my Solomon’s Pride bookrights being returned to me, I will also be publishing them in paperback in collections of three as there are 6 books planned + 3 beyond Solomon’s Pride stories. I will settle things with Smashwords first though before getting to work on publishing volume 1 (and Vol 2 will have to wait till book 6 is completed – and vol 3 with the beyond books is way into the future so be impatient for vol 2 after the 1st gets out and for now, please forget about volume 3 πŸ˜› )

Hope everyone is doing well. Now I need to put this classical music brain power list to the test and get back to writing my thesis πŸ™‚

Cover Reveal German edition

Hey guys πŸ˜€ You must be wondering what I’ve been doing lately, or not. I am working on my thesis for my masters and finishing up a short story for the Flint charity anthologies. Biting Liam, the completely new Solomon’s Pride book, is being proofread as we speak and is due for publication some time in November if all goes well. I’m also doing a bit of proofreading for a friend of mine. I am enjoying every bit, but I am pretty booked πŸ˜›

Today though, I wanted to share with you the cover for the German translation of my very first published story: When Blood Beckons ❀ The German version will be out around November 17th. (Oh and yes, eventually Solomon’s Pride will be translated as well)
