Hey everyone! I live! ^_^
It's been a crazy time lately. I went through a bit of a rough patch, escaped to nature for a little bit, stocked up on some games for the Nintendo nerd in me, picked up some new anime to watch, and now I have more writing projects! Can't tell you just what the newest writing project is about yet, but keep posted for updates. It's a fun little piece that I'm writing and I daresay it's a bit therapeutic as well. I think you'll all enjoy the tale once it's out.
But don't worry! I'm still working on the first round edits of CHAMPIONS OF ARRYGN. There's so much work left to be done in that novel. I'm sorry that it won't be coming out within the year, but I promise you all that it is worth the wait.
In the meantime, CHILD OF BLACKWEN and MISTRESS OF BLACKWEN are sitting at $2.99 on the kindle. Book one has 21 Amazon reviews (ahhhh!!!) and book two has 4! Thank you to all who have reviewed. Once book two has ten Amazon reviews, I will post the prologue of CHAMPIONS OF ARRYGN here on the blog for you all. It's not something you want to miss either, especially if you're curious about who Eclipse is. *winks*
I also promised you some author interviews, didn't I? I have three of them to share with you all. Learn some fun facts about me as well as my writing process! I do mention working on SHADOW WALKER in them too; I have officially decided that that series will be in the "New Adult" and "Dark Fantasy" genres. I won't quit the YA genre, do not fret!
Here are the links to the author interviews:
I've also thought about prequels/novellas for a handful of characters in the Artemis Ravenwing novels. It's something I really wanted to do once the series was over, but there are a couple of characters who are telling me that I should start on it sooner rather than later. So work on them, I shall! I'll keep you guys posted about that too.
For those of you who follow my cosplay adventures, I did start working on both Yoko Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho and Vampire Princess Miyu from her self-titled anime. Sabaku Con in May is going to be awesome, I can feel it.
Yoko has needed more work than Miyu, believe it or not. I especially want to get his fox tail just right. He has a very unique tail; those who have watched the anime will know. Here are some progress pics of my first trial run (note: I did deviate a lot from the tutorial I had! The next tail I'll make will be a definitely mixture of both that and the mental notes I made during the first crafting):
I'll post more progress pics when I have them!
Alas, duty calls before my retail shift tonight. Happy reading and adventures, everyone! ^_^
