Make You and… Yeah.

Happy May, people. It’s after 6am, so excuse the half-asleep/kinda wired weirdness that will surely follow.

First off! I forgot to post this here, but I did release the sequel to Stake You. Make You is still on sale at 99c until Sunday. Next release (hopefully this month) is Queen (Chaos #3) – it’s (annoyingly) ready to go, just working out cover options still. (I am gleefully dying to hear responses to that book!) Beyond that, I’m looking at a September release – likely Chaos #4 (title & blurb reveal in back of Queen), but I’m not 100% sure right now.

Between mid-term break, sick kids, a mental block, and some other boring schtuff, I’ve gotten way behind schedule, (yeah, I know, play a new tune, Claire) so I reckon I won’t be online much for a while. I am behind on emails, post, and all that jazz, and even though I’m trying to slooooowly catch up, I’m on kind of an introverted disconnect right now. I vant to be alooone. My life is going through a major shift, so I’m just going to accept that 2014 is a behind schedule kind of deal, embrace the stress, and do what I can. Which is really going to screw with the fantasy I had of taking October off to play Dragon Age: Inquisition. 😉 (And the bigger not-a-chance-in-hell fantasy of going to see Faith No More, Black Sabbath, & Soundgarden in England this summer. Tear).

Also! Am I the only person who’s getting bored with Game of Thrones and ridiculously over-excited about The Vikings? I’ve been having serious trouble sleeping for the past few months, so I’ve been spending way too many wide-eyed early hours of the morning time (well, hello there, sun) with Netflix watching Sons of Anarchy (dude, why am I crying over bikers?), True Detectives (anything remotely gothic ftw), and now Rectify. I am loving the slower pace of the last two. Mini-series are my new thang. (Until Claire gets her sleep back).

/Vague nonsensical waffle. So not why you’re here.

Make You is available on Smashwords, Amazon US,UK, etc., Barnes & Noble, and Apple iBookstore IE,GBUS, etc.
Make You

Cover is by CCR Designs. Blurb below:

It’s been months since Devlin O’Mara’s boyfriend killed a vampire for her, months since her family and friends covered up the incident for her. But now teenage girls are going missing and dying, and it seems as if Sully could somehow be back in town.

As the kidnappings draw too close to home, Devlin sets off on a mission to find the truth. But as she soon discovers, enemies can become allies, allies could be the true source of her problems, and vengeance is one of the few emotions vampires retain.

It’ll all end in blood and tears… but who will survive?

Changes, Dilemmas, & A Queen

The kids have two weeks off school, so obviously it was time for another bout of sickness. One kid started puking on Friday. It’s now Tuesday (I think?), it’s three down, two to go, and both parents are borderline. We’ve had some lovely bright mornings, but we can’t go anywhere, so that’s a shame. Maybe next week!

There are some pretty big changes happening in my personal life that will have an impact on writing/publishing. I have two books close to ready, two manuscripts that need a massive edit, and two editing slots in the summer. Beyond that, I don’t know how much things will slow down. We’re on the wait and see train right now. But I will not leave any unfinished series hanging out there.

My dilemma is that I planned on publishing Make You this month, and Queen next month. But Queen came back earlier than expected, and it’s in better condition than Make You. I feel like I should just publish Queen this month and give Make You more time (because something’s irking me about it), but that feels a little unfair to those who are waiting for Make You. Right now, both stories need covers, Queen needs a proofread, and Make You is waiting on another edit + proofread, so it makes sense in one way to get Queen out of the way, but that’s really close to Fade, considering the rest of the books won’t be published a month apart. I’ve been going back and forth about this for weeks, and I’m still no closer to figuring out what to do.

In other, kinda-related news, I’m struggling with Chaos #4. The previous two books were obviously too easy, and this is my punishment. 😀 I’m, again, having trouble making decisions on what goes into this book. I don’t even have a title which is weirdly unsettling. The almost ready to be published books hanging around are distracting, so I’m hoping once they’re out of the way that this will get easier. It’s during months like this that I wish I wasn’t in charge of everything. I’m not decisive enough. 🙂

So yeah, I’m not online as much, but I try to keep people updated as often as possible, hence this (kinda vague) post.

And I’ll end with a place-holder cover for Queen (Chaos #3) because I’m obviously procrastinating if I’m blogging and creating place-holder covers.

Queen Demo Cover

 

Here’s the blurb if you’re interested:

Three kings.
Two queens.
One heir.
Chaos will rule.
