Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying a good start to Spring (or Fall, depending on your part of the world!) I am still hard at work on this year’s new releases for you. 🙂
As I mentioned in my last post, we are looking at only two novel-length releases this year because of some life upheaval I have going on. The first book of 2016 was originally planned to be released at the end of this month, but I’ve had to push back this release due to a significant uptick in migraines over the past couple of months that have severely limited my computer time (I’m sure readers of Broken Mirrors will not be shocked to hear I’m a life-long migraineur.) It’s taking me longer to get things done, but they are still getting done!
Now I’m questioning whether I should just release both of this year’s books back to back or if I should still break them up, but I won’t bore you with all my hand-wringing. I’ll just say: have no fear, the books are coming, and it will be this year as planned. I’m very, very excited about them and will update you with some teasers as soon as I have firm release dates nailed down! I’m sorry to make everyone wait so long, but I hope you will find the new stories worth the wait. I would never give you less than my best.
I also have another exciting bit of news: Drachenmond Verlag is officially bringing the Broken Mirrors Duology to German readers in both print and e-book! I’ll post more about that closer to the time. I’m planning a special Thane and Kesara treat to celebrate their German release (but no worries for the rest of you, it will still be in English! 😉 )
Finally, I was asked in the comments of my last post about what reading I caught up on over my December break. I thought I had answered that and saw when I popped in to update that I either didn’t do it or it didn’t post, so with my apologies for the suspense, I finally caught up on the Inspector Rebus series by Ian Rankin. 🙂 I’ve always been a huge mystery fan as well as romance and fantasy/sci-fi, and I would love to write one of my own eventually. I’m not sure I’d actually be any good at it–I can usually never figure out whodunit as a reader!–but I think it would be a lot of fun to try! My favorite mystery writers, apart from Mr. Rankin of course, are Agatha Christie (especially Poirot! <3), Ruth Rendell, the Mary Russell series by Laurie R. King, and the Agatha Raisin series by M. C. Beaton. I’ve read and enjoyed other series/authors, of course, but those are the ones on my “auto buy” list!
Hopefully my next update will have some descriptions and release dates (and cover art) for you to enjoy. Thank you all for bearing with me during this weird transitional time!
