I meant to write a New Year's post, but...well, I was already embarked upon my newest writing venture, so I never got around to it. I am also looking for a job again, since my seasonal position ran up, and so after being worked to death in December, I was left feeling quite bored. So I re-read my Nano story, and after putting that one away for future work (don't know the exact publication date for it yet, it's done, but polished it is not!) I started on a book that has been nagging me for a long time. Which by my own rules, I am not at liberty to speak about yet. Even though I'm bursting at the seams because I LOVE it. Really really love it.
Anyway, here's a little of what you can all look forward to in the coming months:
My next book up for publication is going to by my first Michael Crandon book A Company of Rogues. It should be out by summer, hopefully, and I'm also hoping to publish another book in the winter, but which one it will actually be, I don't know yet. It will be a surprise.
I am going to be setting up a tour for my Anthony Maxwell series. It's late, because I had planned to do it in November, but I was so slammed through Nov and Dec that I am pushing it up and hopefully by March it will be up and that's exciting because I have been so terrible at promoting lately, it's awful. During the tour, however, I will hopefully be releasing info about my WIP and once that's out, you can expect a slew of stuff about it on the blog. It's kind of my baby right now.
Until the time that my next book is published, you can read my story The Voices Beneath, an Arthurian retelling (loose retelling, I'm warning you) from Mordred's point of view. it's on my sister blog: http://talesfromamodernbard.blogspot.com. On that note: if you wish to participate in guest writing challenges, PLEASE email me through the contact me tab up top. I am looking for potential guest writers for Modern Bard, and really want to get something started. It's a win win situation!
Besides writing, I've been enjoying my life as a (conservative) fangirl (just kidding) with all the movies and shows coming out. But since I've already seen Thor, Desolation of Smaug, and tomorrow will be the Sherlock finale, I'm really glad I've got writing to fall back on. But anyway, as part of my fangirling and unlimited time on my hands, I made Hobbit plushies which I thought you might enjoy seeing pictures of so here they are:
|Bilbo, Kili and Fili!|
|They even have facial hair!|
|Thorin was made by my mum, but the others are all mine|
So that's what I've been up to. I'll definitely endeavor to write more real posts. Monday I will be hosting for a tour for the book "Soul Slam" and I will hopefully have my character post up next week as well!
Hope everyone is having a good 2014 so far!
