It's been awhile since I updated this blog, but here we are anyway! It's been a great opening month for Chimehour, sales steady and new readers on the horizon! A lot has happened in the last month too, so I want to give a few quick summaries on my latest updates!
I have been slow to share it here, but my cover artist, BoredBarista, has been putting together some amazing character commissions for the main cast of Chimehour, all of which can now be found on the gallery of The Faire Curiosities page here. Nicole put her heart and soul into each of the character designs, in addition to bringing so much life into the covers for Spectre and Chimehour! The previews of all five pictures can be seen above, and I cannot wait to work with Nicole again! Currently she has opened her doors for commissions, and can be found most easily through her Facebook page.
The Heretic's Dead Man:
If you have stayed familiar with my work for awhile now, you know that my series at present includes several short stories and novellas that tie into the main four books! And I have a new novella ready to go soon- hooray! Fans of the series will recognize Flann and Helen from Chimehour, set 300 years before the main events of the series. It's been an absolute delight to write them again in a new perspective, and I hope to have the new novella out in time for Christmas!
What Comes Next?
You know me, I am always busy with something else on my plate! And so I have been onward into new projects: I have returned to working on Beglamour and Endevour, the second and third books to follow Chimehour. They are in need of a lot of TLC, but I can focus on them better now that the first book is a completed product. I also plan to do a series of blogs with a few deleted scenes from Chimehour starting at the beginning of the year. There will be some new announcements regarding anthologies and a few new short stories coming into the new year as well. I will be picking up on my Senior Year in college after a semester off, so I will be back to my usual level of busy between that and work, but I have returned to most of my normal writer energy and don't want to waste a second of it!
