New Series and a New Book

It’s been pretty busy the last couple of months. Aside from my son being sick most of  March and April, I’ve been battling mutant allergy attacks that make forming simple thoughts difficult.

I’m stopping in today and sharing a quick update because I have news! Great things are going on creatively and I’m pretty excited.

Years ago I crafted a poetry book filled with different poems that go from typical to dark and twisty. I’ve spent the last week or so doing some major technical feats (I’m pretty impressed with what I’ve done and swear I need to share about 3 different tech how to blog posts to make people’s lives easier soon) to create a few things.

I’m juggling creating the following:

1) Beautiful Character Sheets of my Crooked Halo characters so I can have them to reference while I write and keep Halos, scents, hair colors, and names straight. This project involved some creative work arounds to keep the sheets looking pretty which I will share one day soon in a How To blog post.

2) I resurrected a novel I started too long ago to share but I’m excited to bring this story back to life. It will be a new series called Rebuild. It’s a cozy mystery and I can’t wait to finish it! The characters and settings are so different from Crooked Halo yet draw me in just as strongly. I am eager to get this novel out there for you to read.

3) The second book in The Crooked Halo Series. It’s started. It’s funny and quirky and I’m only 3 chapters in to writing it. I anticipate a late 2017 release date.

4) I’m finishing up prepping the poetry book I mentioned aboved for publishing. There are 3 sections of poems, each one carrying a theme of Nature, Dark and Twisty, and the last one is a mix of the first two with a little action adventure. I’ve added a short story to each section, which even if poetry isn’t your thing, makes getting this novel more than worth it.

5) I’m creating the cover for the short story novel and am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.  I anticipate releasing the book late July 2017.

So, while I’ve been a bit lax in posting here, I’ve definitely been busy!

Plus, I’ve just shared a great giveaway you should check out!!
