After concluding a month of talking about my first books (The Birthday Present; A Year with the Harrisons; and two versions of Facets of Fantasy) I realized Victoria: A Tale of Spain does deserve its own print even if the story is shorter now. I also moved Jurant into a single, with its own paperback, and moved the Facets collections off the website.
Over the next few weeks I’m moving forward into the next books--Ryan and Essie and the Chronicles of Palladia. City of the Invaders, Consuela, and Alyce were all published at a similar time and are now being linked into a series. Very tidy, right? I’ve already done a few posts on Ryan and Essie and will do more, as it’s an exciting story that’s certainly worth a look even for the reluctant.
A Year with the Harrisons will be published in a couple of weeks, I hope. When a book's been delayed by 8 years, it can’t get out fast enough. There’s a gap in my publications that won’t be filled until it’s available, but the page for it is already up and you can take a look. I’m not sure yet about The Birthday Present. I think of it as my “extra” story and always have—that’s why it was gone for so long. But it gets steady attention, so I’ll throw in a post here and there about it too.
Just because I’m turning the Palladia stories into a series does not mean I am automatically "keeping" them. The series makes me able to sort a lot of jumbled material, but if it doesn't perform well I'll stop marketing it like anything else. I just feel the stories have to be in a series before I can begin to have an idea of their value.
And there will be more updates.
7 books published and 3 more on the way. Farmer's daughter, LOTR fan, loves to read rather than talk about reading. Always has time to finish her WIP.
