Heartache in Audio!

Get it from Amazon for Audible by clicking here.

In other news, I’m still getting things set in my new country, so work has been slow, sorry. But we’ve got a place to live as of next week and so things should happen again after that. River of No Return (book 9) will by out by end of month. Just need to get some stuff sorted out before I can release it. Thank you all for you patience!  Also Thicker than Blood should be out in audio sooner than later as well.

Books in July

Hope everyone is having a good start to summer. As some of you might know, I’m moving overseas to the Netherlands at end of June. Packing for a 5000 mile move and getting everything in order while dealing with a serious injury is stressful and taking a lot out of me, sorry. While book 9 probably could go up next week, I frankly don’t want to rush and deal with a book launch in the middle of this move. I was hoping to get the book out much earlier in the month, but hope and spring and eternal and all that, right? 🙂

So I’ll probably upload and get all that done from Amsterdam instead the first week of July.

Thank you for your continued patience while I navigate this huge life change and this stupid back injury.

 

May News and Update

Hey, quick update. Books 9 and 10 are still coming, I promise. I’m just having the most epic episode of House in terms of trying to figure out what’s going on with my stupid back injury and am currently stumping every doctor and specialist I see (apparently it’s also related/possible made worse by the terrible case of plantar fasciitis I have, sigh). So the writing and editing have been very slow going. I’m also prepping for a huge move (moving 4,991 miles!) which isn’t helping. Once I’m moved, we’re going to make some modifications to my new office which should allow me to work with less pain, but we can’t do much before that since we’re currently getting rid of 90% of our things.

My goal is to have both books released before the move on June 30th, so hopefully I’ll be updating twice at some point in June with a “yay book” post instead of “screw this pain” post.

I thank you all for your continued patience. It sucks to be so far behind my writing schedule (The next projects after 20sided are so cool and I want to share them and I can’t yet because I need to focus on 20sided, grr) and I know it sucks to have to wait so long for books. Thanks for being here and understanding that sometimes life happens while we’re making plans.

 

The Universe Hates Me

Apparently the cosmic forces of the universe don’t want me to finish editing book 9 so you all can read it. I have had a horrible cold I am hoping is not the flu this entire week. (Fever broke yesterday, so I’m hoping it isn’t the flu, just a shitty imitation of it)

So book 9 will be out as soon as I can breathe again. Might be end of next week, might be week after. I’m really sorry for the delays.

Where’s Book 9?

ETA: Had a few days of serious pain and wasn’t able to work, sorry. So book 9 will be early next week instead of this week. Thanks for your patience, not much longer to wait, I promise!

(TLDR: Book 9 the 20th or so of March, Book 10 the last week of March)

I know, February is almost over.  I could possibly rush edits on River of No Return and get it out by the 28th, but I’m leaning toward not doing that. Books 9 and 10 follow on each other’s heels story-wise (and given that I’ve been writing them simultaneously they will also release close together) and I want to make sure the story continuity and set-up is solid.  Which means rushing an edit would be a poor plan.

Which is a really long-winded way of saying my new plan is to release book 9 on the 13th or 14th (depends on upload time at various retailers so I can’t predict exact day) and then release book 10 around the 27th or 28th. I’d reveal the cover for book 10 but it would be spoilery so y’all gotta wait, sorry. It’s shiny and epic af though.

I’m sorry I’ve been so delayed lately, but I’m still rehabing my back injury with no end in sight yet and it means that I can’t work more than a couple hours a day due to factors like constant pain and being unable to sit at my desk (where I do my best, most focused work, sigh) etc. I’m doing what I can and I’m very thankful for everyone’s patience. I’d love to say that my physical therapy is going great and I’ll be 100% any day now, but alas that doesn’t seem to be the case and we’re hoping another couple months will do it.

Again, thank you all for your patience and messages of support. I hope that I’ll be able to get more stories out once I’m healthy again. And hey, the wait is truly almost over, I promise.

Quick January 2018 Update

I am currently getting books 9 and 10 finished. Still going very slowly because of my back injury, sorry. I really appreciate all the kind messages and how understanding everyone has been. Your support has made the last few months a little easier as I deal with doctors and physical therapy.

The downside is, it’s unlikely I’ll get book 9 uploaded before January ends. The upside is both 9 and 10 will be released in February and I doubt there will be more wait time than three weeks or so between books.  Currently I’m on track for releasing 9 at start of Feb and 10 by the end of Feb. So… not too much longer to wait now.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. I’m hoping that the focus these last few months on recovery and healing will mean I can do a lot more writing and be healthier in the future.

 

Oh, and if you are dying for a kick-ass Urban Fantasy read… give K.F. Breene’s new series a try. It won’t disappoint, in my opinion. Click here to get Natural Witch (Magical Mayem Book 1) from Amazon!

2017 Wrap-up

Quick update:

I hurt my back while traveling at the end of August and instead of getting better it got worse until it has severely impacted my ability to do anything, sorry.  I am seeing yet another doctor in December, and I think we’ve finally figured out what is wrong, but it is going to take 4-6 weeks to know if treatment/physical therapy is working and likely many more weeks of physical therapy before I’m back to some semblance of normal.

So… writing is going slowly. If you’ve ever been in a lot of pain, you know how unpleasant and difficult it is to do even the most basic tasks, much less keep track of complicated tasks, characters, time-lines, etc.  As always, I won’t release a book I’m not 100% satisfied with.

That said… Book 9 is almost done (but not edited etc yet) and I’ve already written some parts of book 10 (it follows closely on book 9’s events). So my plan at the moment is to finish both books before the end of the year, and then release them in January fairly close together (depending on edit time needed etc).

I’ve got a lot of plans for next year, but of course my health is always the limitation on my life plans. It sucks, but it’s my reality and I’m trying to work through it as best I can. My hope is that I can stay illness and injury free next year and bring you all a lot of kick-ass books because this book-a-year pace makes me sad. I have far too many ideas to get out before I die and I want to write them all NOW, damnit.

The TLDR: bad news- I’m hurt and work is going slowly due to that, sorry.  Good news- books 9 and 10 should release in the same month so you won’t have to wait nearly a year for the end of Jade Crow’s story.

 

(also, I’m planning a novella epilogue for Jade and another novella prequel for Kira’s series. I’ll be doing a cover reveal for Kira’s series in February as well and trust me, these covers are knock-your-socks-off awesome)

October News

That’s the cover for book 9 of Twenty-Sided Sorceress. The good news is that this will be out in November.

The bad news is that Harper’s Tale won’t be out this month as planned. This story uses some real-life stuff (fictionalized of course) from my own life and that of friends, and it’s proving to be very emotionally difficult to write. I want to get the story right, but I can’t keep letting my perfectionism hold up the rest of the series. Jade’s story can keep going while I work on Harper in my spare time.  So I’m letting Harper’s story rest while I work on books 9 and 10 (cover reveal for the 10th and final Jade Crow book will come in December or so).

Thank you all for your understanding and patience. I think you’ll enjoy books nine and ten and I’m looking forward to making them my focus so it doesn’t take a year between them, which I know y’all will also probably prefer 😉

Thank you!
Annie

Where’s the Book?

Y’all are probably wondering where Harper’s novel is.

The answer… not done. This is the toughest book that I’ve ever attempted for multiple reasons I won’t bore you all with, but I am not going to release it until I’m 100% happy with it. It’s a side novel and working on it won’t delay books 9 and 10 since the story doesn’t relate to those at all except tangentially (it’s purely Harper’s story, after all) so it’ll be done when it is done. I was hoping to release it earlier this month, but again, I’m not happy with the book as it stands and I’m going to re-draft it.

So…that’s the bad news. The good news is that while I’ve been stuck on Harper’s book, I’ve been working on the last two Gryphonpike Chronicles novellas. They are both about 90% right now, just need endings and edits etc so I’m going to release those in early June and that will tie up that series (there will be a full trilogy of novels called Gryphonpike Legends with the same characters out next year, so don’t despair, I’m just finishing up the novella series so we can move on to the novels).

To sum up: Harper’s Tale will be done when it’s done and I can’t make any promises. More GPC novellas coming (two of them!) next month. Books 9 and 10 of 20sided will be out in Sept/October.

Thank you for your patience!
