Wow, it's been awhile since I posted last. Let me start by apologizing for my absence. I had so many plans for 2015, and suddenly life threw me some curveballs that made it very difficult to write as much as I wanted to. I believe I've mentioned before that I don't really like delving into my personal life, especially when other people are involved whose privacy I wish to respect, but suffice it to say, 2015 has been rough on me so far. I admire people who are able to compartmentalize their life and their work and everything going on. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those people. I tend to set priorities and focus on what's most important at the time. Sadly, for the past five or so months that wasn't writing and publishing :(
I'm trying to move on now, slowly get back on track, and start releasing again soon. I feel so bad for delaying The Rook, the second book in the Virginia White Chronicles. Although I had always planned to make it a "slow release series", perhaps one released every 6 months to a year, I've exceeded that time, and I'm very sorry for those who are waiting for it. The good news is, it will be out in early May. I'm just wrapping up the finishing touches now.
In my last post, I talked a bit about postponing the release of The Vampire's Castle, my first horror novel. Now that we're almost halfway through the year (time flies, fun or no fun), I've decided to just wait to release it in October, the spooky time of the year. It'll be the first book in the Monster Entries trilogy, and if all goes according to plan, I will release the second and third books in November and December, so that the books come out only one month apart.
Lastly, I do have a project that I would LOVE to release this summer, but I'm hesitant to announce it in detail right now. All I will say is, it's in the horror genre and a different type of story format than I'm used to, which is both nerve-wracking and exciting! I'm gonna keep it hush-hush for now, just in case it falls through due to circumstances out of my control. I don't want to continue to make deadlines and promises I'm not able to keep. But as soon as I'm more confident about the project getting finished, I will post the details.
As always, I want to thank all my wonderful readers. Even though I don't blog much and am hopeless at social media, I want you to know how much I appreciate you.
