Ah, spring. Which means my yard is a mud pit. But the trees are budding and the air’s getting warmer. I’m eager to plant some flowers, get the windchimes and hammock hung up again, and see if my lavender comes back.
I sent Memories to my first set of betas so they can help me dig through the prose for all the gold. I really love this story. It’s so much fun, and it’s so full of heart.
In the meantime, I’m working on the redraft for Book 4 (Songs) and I’m editing Palon’s novella and the Amanah-Taunos novella. I know how to bring them together now, so I’ll be ready for another set of betas probably by the next newsletter.
So, if you want a chance to read a novella or two before it’s out, and if you want a chance to give input that could help polish a story, definitely sign up for the next beta round for one or both of the prequels!
These novellas will be available to subscribers first before anyone else anyway, so if giving feedback makes you anxious, don’t worry! You’ll still get to read them early so long as you’re subscribed. Currently, I think I’ll eventually release Palon’s novella wide, but I’m intending to keep Taunos and Amanah’s prequel subscribers-only indefinitely.
I know!! I’m a few days early with this update! Here’s why:
First of all, on Sunday I’ll be at QuaranCon on the Underappreciated genres panel. I’m really excited for this–it’s been fun to pre-discuss with the other panelists.
Additionally, there are THREE sales going on right now and I wanted to make sure you all knew about them so that you could jump on the chance for more amazing books.
This selection is a bunch of books by panelists in QuaranCon, and they are all FREE or 99cents the 7th to the 12th of April. There’s some absolutely incredible sci-fi and fantasy books in here!
Between this and the next sale, ALL of my novels are currently 99cents! If you’ve been eyeing them, now’s the time to grab them!
A bunch of us semi-finalists from SPFBO have also gotten together to make our books available for 99cents for you! These fantasy novels were in SPFBO from 2018 to last year, and were one step away from the finals. If you’re looking for a great Indie April read, check these out!
Today’s freebie is …. art!
I’ve been messing around on Artbreeder and wanted to show you guys some of the cool.
