Mini Vacation From Words

Hey everyone. Doing a quick update since I don't want to be in front of the computer for very long today.

I "won" NaNoWriMo. I wrote over 50,000 words in November, and oh boy do I sure feel it. As a prize to myself, I am taking a small break to relax and maybe get a little sunlight. Here are some updates about upcoming books.

Knighthood got pushed back because of NaNoWriMo. I was so busy reaching my word count I didn't spend time editing any of my projects. Knighthood wasn't edited, and I barely put any time into The Hunt, which I sort of planned. There was a feeling I'd use December to slow down somewhat and polish all these words until they shine.

The good news is Knighthood is coming out soon. Knighthood will be uploaded the same day as Dead Hunt, which is Wildstar's December release. It's a bit of a happy accident actually, as Knighthood and Dead Hunt are more action oriented stories, so they'll be a little Wildstar action bundle.

January's release of Rivalry is also action packed, but it's a bit more of an internal story for Alana and Karlyn. There will be some more updates on the second half of this season of Wildstar later this month.

Small update on The Hunt. Things are looking real good. Feedback is right where I want it to be. Now with my time opened up, I'll finish up edits and prepare it for release. It won't be a December release, but January is looking like the right time to send it out to the world.

I'm not going to give any hard dates with these stories other than soon. That's because I'm going to take a little vacation after NaNoWriMo to relax, not think about writing, not do any writing, and have some fun. Also editing is a finicky beast. Some days everything goes smoothly and it's a powerful feeling to be ahead of schedule, other times nothing happens but staring at the screen wondering how everything went so wrong. Fun stuff.

There's also a big surprise I've been building towards in the near future. I've been hard at work on these plans for almost a year, so I can't wait to announce the changes. Lots of cool stuff heading this way.

I'm off to binge watch really cheesy movies from the '80s. I'll be back in a week or so. Until then, have a wonderful day everybody!
