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:
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…
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!
