Catching Up

Wow, I'm so sorry I've been annoyingly absent from the interwebs for a few weeks. If you read my earlier post, Pouring My Heart Out, you know I've been taking some time to deal with a very personal issue. After some self-reflection, I feel that I am ready to rejoin the writing world and start blogging again! For anyone who is interested, I will hopefully have an update about my personal life and my journey toward having a baby sometime in early November.

In the meantime, I thought I would post a few updates about what's been going on with my books. I'll make it in bullet points, because hey, bullet points are fun.

  • First of all, I'm working on RIVAL DEMONS again. I had a flash of a new idea and I think I've figured out something that was missing from the rough draft that will pull this whole thing together. I've been feeling much more creative lately and excited about the series. Even though the book was slightly delayed, I am still hoping to have it out by mid-November!!! So only about 1 month left!
  • I have book covers for both RIVAL DEMONS and DEMONS FOREVER!!!! Robin Ludwig did an amazing job on the covers and I can't wait to show them to you. You'll have to wait until December for the reveal of Demons Forever, but I am planning to reveal the cover for Rival Demons next Friday. I might do a fun giveaway in honor of the new cover. I have to say, it's one of my favorite so far, and I hope you'll like it!
  • Today, BEAUTIFUL DEMONS hit its highest ever sales rank for the Amazon UK store. It jumped all the way up to 626. Even though my sales have sadly been slipping in the US store lately, it's exciting to see my books taking off in the UK.
  • I am currently working on a complete revamp of my main website. Right now, my site is completely designed by my husband from scratch, using HTML 5. I like it, but to me, it does look a little bit homemade. I am working with my cover designer to put together a cool banner that will match my PHD series. I'm going to be converting both my site and my blog to wordpress, but it's taking me some time to learn how to do it. Hoping to have a new site up and running by the time Rival Demons is released!
That's most of the news I have right now. Oh, wait! An excerpt of Beautiful Demons is in the back of J.L. Bryan's newest book, Fairy Metal Thunder. I was so excited that he wanted to include me in his book!! In return, there will also be an excerpt of Fairy Metal Thunder in the back of Rival Demons if you're interested in checking it out for a free preview! The book is really well done and a lot of fun. I think most of my readers would really enjoy it, and at only $0.99, it's hard to resist!!! I highly recommend it.

In other news, I know I am late in posting my sales for September. Believe me when I say they are nothing to get excited about. For some reason, I've seen a terrible slump in my sales all the way across the board both in September and October. I know that it's just part of the process of publishing, so I'm not worried about it, just anxious to get Rival Demons out. For anyone interested, I will hopefully post Sept. sales sometime later this week.
