Spring! (Not Really)


It's one of those days where the sun is shining and I want to go play in the dirt.

But it's way too soon.

It's a cheating kind of day. Makes me feel like I should be putting seed in the ground...which is still partly frozen. And there's a chilly wind that reminds me it is only February.

I poked around the yard. Pruned some roses that had gotten badly overgrown. Pulled a couple of weeds. Everything is too wet to do much work out there. But I had to go out and feel the sun on my face after a week of gray skies and rain.

Found a lot of daffodils poking their green fingers out of the ground. Crocus, too. I want to pull back the leaves to look for more, but it's too soon. Sigh.

Hurry up spring!

Lessons Learned in Print

It only took 2 proofs this time around.

Since I only do this a few times a year and several months apart, I am always relearning the process. I was also a little sleep deprived due to another bout of insomnia. So when I realized I'd left a couple pages out, it took me over a day to figure out how to get them back in there. Sigh.

Print copies should be available all over, if not now, then in a day or two.

Sales for the series didn't blast off as they had when Gleanings came out. At first, I was disappointed. Then the trickle of sales continued through the rest of the month, making January the best month ever. Woohoo! I'll take that over a pop and fizzle any day.

Thanks to everyone who has invest in this series. I hope you enjoy book 4!

Back to Asher

When I finished Dark Deeds, I though I was saying good bye to the series. I had left Asher in a good place. It was time to move on to other things. But I forgot how much fun his story is to write.

I'm finally settling into a rhythm of writing, and I've discovered that I like to hop into different series. It helps me change gears and keep everything fresh. Starting in March, I will have four series in rotation now. However, I don't think I can produce four books a year. I'm set up for three this year, if I can learn to write faster, I'll try for four next year.

I struggled with two books last year which completely threw me off my stride. I don't think I scheduled in enough time for life-in-general. This time I have set up a whole year of writing with lots of wiggle room for anything that comes down the pike. And so far, I am a little ahead of myself, which is just amazing.

So Asher is off on another adventure. I'm only a couple thousand words into the draft and already I'm having a blast.

If all goes according to plan, it will be out in August.

Last Chance to Get Lethal Seasons for 99c

Tomorrow Lethal Seasons - book 1 of A Changed World - will go back to normal price. Grab your copy for 99 cents now. Click here for a list of retailers.

Lessons Learned - book 4 of A Changed World - is now available at all retailers. Click here to find your favorite.

The next book coming out will be a high fantasy stand alone. I've got the release planned for late March unless something goes sideways. The toughest part is coming up - writing the blurb. This book was supposed to come out last year, but it had some issues. It's taken me awhile to find the proper ending. Now that I have that, I can push on the the next stage.

While that one is out to readers, I will be drafting the next Asher Blaine mystery. I had actually planned to go back to the Transmutation series, but Asher whispered in my ear that there was another murder about to happen. That book will possibly be out this fall.

Keep an eye on the blog or website for updates.
