Hello, everyone! You might have noticed that we are here at MY NEW WEBSITE! (Those following on my wordpress blog, click the link! It’s awesome, I promise! And I won’t be updating here regularly much longer.)
There is a lot to tell since my last blog post. Most exciting of all is that I have an official publishing credit to my name now! My short story “An Issue of Blood”, a sort of prequel story set in my Soldaris universe, took third place in the 2017 Dragon Comet short story contest by Sibyl’s Scriptorium and was published in their anthology. Volume 4 (2017) of Sibyl’s Scriptorium I am, of course, really excited about this.
Second piece of exciting news is that my health has improved to the point where I am able to do gainful employment again. While I will lament the loss of my “excessive” writing time, the truth is that the stresses of being unemployed and sick were taking a toll on my ability to write anyway. I imagine that having a day job again will help with the self-confidence and with idea generation. It’s hard to get new ideas if you never leave the house or have no money to go out and have new experiences.
The third exciting thing? I have a tentative release date in my head for my first novel. It’s not going to be Soldaris, as I thought it would be. It’s from my Servants of the Source series, an urban fantasy romance series about a modern order of paladins. I’ve enjoyed getting to know these characters and this world, and I think you all will as well. As I get things like cover design and everything nailed down, I will have a better idea of the actual release date to announce it. 😀
Soldaris and Empress of Gold (my massive epic fantasy romance inspired by historical Korean dramas) are still in the works, but I’d feel wrong giving them to you before they were ready. ❤
I’m looking forward to some serious changes here on the blog, and I hope you are able to enjoy them as well. Please don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter so you can keep in the know about news and when that release date gets announced!
