Just a “not so quick” update on my writing. I finished writing the third OLD BLOOD SAGA novel, Hunter’s Moon, in January. I’ve been working on revisions and will send the manuscript to my editor in June. If all goes well, I’ll aim for a July release.
I’ve also decided to make a few general changes and updates to how I work and my books.
I will relaunch all of my books, with new ISBN numbers over the summer. When you publish through Amazon, they offer free ISBN numbers. The upside is they are free. The downside is that you can’t publish your books on other platforms using their ISBN numbers. I’ve now purchased a block of ISBN numbers to use in my books going forward.
While my ebooks will remain exclusively on Amazon, from this summer, I will publish my paperback books on Amazon, through IngramSpark, and offer signed copies through my website.
In the spirit of change, I’ve also decided to recover all my books. Though I love my covers, I’ve realized they don’t scream “urban fantasy” to my readers. I spent late winter searching for a new cover designer who specializes in Fantasy cover design. I’ll announce some cover reveals soon. I’m excited about the new designs and I think you will be too.
And while I am overhauling things, I’ve decided to revisit my first novel, The Weaver, and do a full set of revisions. It was my first novel, and I recognize the first third of the book reads a bit too slow–something I’ve felt, and something I’ve had feedback on from readers. So along with the other exciting news, I will relaunch a new version of The Weaver this summer.
I’d always envisioned these books as a 5-book series. When I finished writing Hunter’s Moon and outlining the fourth book, I realized there was a gap between books three and four. In exploring it further, I outlined a new fourth novel, which makes the series now 6 books in total.
With the launch of Hunter’s Moon this summer, I will relaunch The Weaver and Old Blood with the new covers as well. Accompanying this relaunch, there will also be a 3-ebook “box set” on Amazon.
And finally, while I’ve mentioned the changes I’ve made to the number of books in the series, I’d be remiss in not mentioning I’ve completed full outlines of books four and five of the series and am already quite far along in writing book four, which will be available this Autumn.
I’m looking forward to a productive year and hope you are looking forward to seeing what happens next to Nathan and his friends.
