It has been gloriously springlike here in Maryland. Rainy, yes, but we’ve needed it badly. The drought here isn’t as bad as it was in California before I moved, but it’s bad enough to warrant concern. Besides, I love the rain.
Even though the weather outside is gorgeous and seductive, I’ve been inside pounding away at the keyboard. I finally got to write the wonderful words The End at the bottom of Brian’s latest adventure. After all the trouble this one’s given me I can’t tell you how relieved I am to see those six little letters. Of course, the thing needs some major overhaul work on it, but I’ve sent it to my Alpha Reader for a once over before I return to it for the first round of edits. Overall I’m pretty pleased though, and I think that the bones are good. Look for news on a release date and so on. I’m thinking soon, though. Once I broke past the wall, it went fairly quickly.
A Spirit’s Kindred is coming out sooner though! Slated for March 11th, I will put it up for preorder hopefully over the weekend, for a special reduced price for launch. The cover is shaping up and looks amazing, you guys! You’ll get to see it on Monday I have no doubt. I’m being a little extra picky with this one, though, which is why it’s taking so long. I’m pretty sure my cover artist is about ready to plot my death via thousands of paper cuts.
I’ve also got a special promotion slated to run at the same time. Sarah’s Inheritance will be free from March 9th through the 13th if you haven’t picked it up yet. Hard to beat free as a price point! Anyhow, that’s all the news from here for now. I’m hard at work on a few projects: Brian’s adventure (man, I need a title for that!) and a new Los Gatos novel is slowly forming in my mind, and maybe a fun short story or two for my newsletter readers are starting to come together a bit. Basically, the next few months should be a lot of fun, don’t you think?
