Happy April, friends and familiars!
I don’t have much time this week–working from home has been and still is amazing–so I’ll get right to it 🙂
I’ve finished the handwritten edit of Darkened Light, so now I just need to apply all the changes to the draft and send it back to my editor! I just realised I haven’t got a copy on my laptop yet, so that needs to happen, too.
I’m making good progress on Blood Wisp–speaking of which, did you catch the title reveal on Twitter and Instagram? 😉
The three books will be called:
Blood Wisp (Blood Wisp #1)
Blood Song (Blood Wisp #2)
Blood Vow (Blood Wisp #3)
There’ll also be one paperback with all three books. Individually, they’ll only be out as eBooks.
Once Blood Wisp is written, I’ll outline the other two books so I’m ready to dive in this summer. I’ve booked all four covers for October 😉
Between those and the other covers (Blood of the Dragon in August and the prequel novella in September) I’ve got a lot of reveals coming up! 😀
The free newsletter exclusive guide Self-Publish Your Debut Novel like a Boss is almost ready for betas and will go out next week. I’m hoping to have it ready for my subscribers by the end of the month ^-^
Relics of Ar’Zac
I’ve neglected the prequel to Relics of Ar’Zac while I’ve adjusted to my temporary routine, but I still want to get as much of that done as I can this month. I want it to rest while I edit Blood of the Dragon for the first two times, and then come back to it while Dragon is with my editor.
I doubt I’ll finish it this month, but all progress is good progress.
Once the Easter break is over and Darkened Light is with my editor, I’ll begin the first read-through of Dragon. It’ll be messy, but I’ve stocked up on tea so I’m ready*.
* *whimpers in a corner*
Seeing how much I’ve been able to get done when I’m working from home full-time has been incredible motivation to get my butt in gear. More people are reaching out to me to book sample edits, which is encouraging. I just need to find a few freelance writing clients now and turn some of those sample edits into contracts, and I’ll be a happy kitten.
Honestly, this break from the day job has been eye-opening.
One last thing before I get back to work–
I’ve created the first aesthetic for the Blood Wisp trilogy this week, so I thought I’d leave you with that 🙂
You can find all originals in my Blood Wisp Pinterest board.
Have a wonderful April, friends!
