Preparations have begun!

Good morning and happy February!

I hope everyone's new year has started off well and continues as we push into a new month.  Pretty soon I'll be releasing the second book in the Annals of Ellie series, Perspicacity and am hoping to have a synopsis to share with everyone before too long.  If you haven't read the first book, Vivication, yet, then check out my publisher's website, Cressen Books LLC, where you can read the synopsis and the first chapter and find links for purchasing Vivication on Kindle, Nook, or on CreateSpace as a paperback!

 
As that particular book wraps up its journey to publication, I've begun preparing myself for my next project, the fourth book in the Galactic Dynasty series.  I'm actually re-reading the previous books to refresh my memory of all the events that have taken place so far in that series and am really excited to begin writing the next novel!  If you haven't checked out this series yet and are intrigued by sci-fi/adventures, then be sure to visit the Galactic Dynasty page on this site to find links for the first three novels!






I believe that's all my news for now!  So it's off to the coffee pot to refill my mug with some 'go' juice and then on to more reading!

A New Year

Good afternoon, all!

It's a brand new year and I've got lots going on that will hopefully all happen this year.  First is Perspicacity (Annals of Ellie #2)!  It's in its final stages of edits and should be published by early to mid-February, fingers crossed!  I do finally have a cover for it, so I'll post it here:


After I finish with Perspicacity, I intend to start writing the manuscript for the next book in the Galactic Dynasty series.  And if I get that done early enough, I'll return to Annals of Ellie to begin writing the third book in that series.  So, lots of writing happening this year!

I've also got a few vacations planned, one to Key West, FL, one to visit my bestie in KY, and others I'm not a hundred percent sure on where they'll be just yet.  I'm looking forward to traveling, though!

I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe, and productive new year and I'll be back on to post more when I get the chance!

Soul of Arial and Other News

Hello World!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post.  Been busy with writing and life and whatnot!  For those of you who know about The Soul of Arial series, you'll be happy to know I've been hard at work on the manuscript for the third and final book of this series!  The characters have a lot to say and even more to do to bring this fantasy to a close, so hopefully we'll get it all written and polished before summer's over.

While you're waiting for this particular book to be released, be sure to check out Vivication (Annals of Ellie #1)!  It is now available on Kindle, Nook, and in paperback on Amazon and CreateSpace.  So what are you waiting for??

That's about all I've got for now.  Still dealing with back issues that prevent me from writing as much as I would like to.  But I'm stubborn, so this manuscript and others will get done!  I hope everyone has had an amazing summer and if I get a chance, I'll be sure to post about my awesome two-week cross-country road trip I took in July with my Muse!  Got some amazing pictures to share with you guys!

Take care and happy reading!

Sketching is one thing, drawing is something totally different. That is if you are Ellie Marshall. Ellie loves to sketch, to escape to a place of peace in her mind. Away from her modern, mundane, bible-belt foster homes. But when her mind decides to draw, it takes over everything. It demands immediate attention – as in Draw. Right. Now. And what her mind draws is of future events, of things yet to happen. Then one day her mind drew a creepy medieval castle…

Time is Flying... Me, Not So Much

Good morning, Peeps!

It's been a chaotic month or so since I last posted.  I went through the Kindle Scout Campaign program, I've begun work on the next book in two different series, and I've been dealing with a back issue that has yet to resolve itself.  Fun times!

So, first off, Vivication (Annals of Ellie #1) was not selected to be published through Amazon's Kindle Publications.  But because of the awesome response I got from individuals showing their support over the course of the campaign, I will be publishing Vivication through Cressen Books LLC.  The release date for it is this Wednesday, April 27th, and it will be available for purchase on Kindle, Nook, and in paperback through CreateSpace and Amazon!  Just as a reminder of what Vivication is about, here's the cover and synopsis:

Second, I have been working on the fourth book for Galactic Dynasty and the third book for The Soul of Arial.  I'm actually a little further along in Arial simply because those characters have been in my head lately.  I'll be sure to place a progress bar here on the blog so those of you interested can monitor my progress.  I'm hoping to have both of these books done and ready for publication by the end of this year, so I'm crossing my fingers I can meet that goal!

And lastly, the back issues.  I've been having what feels like a pinched nerve and muscle spasms in my back since the middle of January.  Everything the doc has had me do so far has not helped, so I'm now seeing a neurosurgeon and a pain management specialist to try and pinpoint exactly what's causing the pain so we'll know how to alleviate it.  Because of this, I've only been able to sit in front of the computer for short periods of time and some days are worse than others, causing me to not be able to put my full focus on any project I'm working on.  So, writing has been sporadic to say the least and this does not make me a happy camper.  But hopefully a resolution is in sight.

So, that's been my world as of late.  I'll be back on soon to post links for Vivication.  Until then, I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
