Workin’ On It

This blog entry is for all of my readers wondering about release dates. ☺

One of the disadvantages of print publishing is that you’re under a contract deadline and hence have to write what you’re contracted to write whether you feel like it or not.

Or rather, I should say that one of the advantages of indie publishing – is that you don’t.

Right now, I have readers asking me for the sequels in five different series: The Kings, Neverland, The Lost Angels, The October Trilogy, and The Chosen Soul. For some reason, the fates deemed to bless me with the ability to write well, but often not about any single thing for too terribly long, lol. Characters and their situations fight one another for attention in the ring of my mind, and whichever is the strongest at any given point in time is the one that wins the immortality of ink and paper.

And so, I can’t give you exact release dates for any of my series except one. The October Trilogy is a seasonal series, clearly, and since the month of October is so integral to its telling that the word is in fact in its title, you can rest assured that the third book in the trilogy will be out in October of 2013.

The others, however, I have to write as they want to be written. This is a good thing. It means I won’t go rushing through any of them when I’m not inspired to do so. Writing when you don’t feel like it often lends itself to a poor end product. Since I won’t be doing this, you can rest assured that when the books do release, they’ll be freaking awesome.

    Your books are always freaking awesome. I’ll be here waiting as will many others. Thanks for the tidbits and teasers even though the last one had me sitting here bouncing up and down with my impatient side trying to throw a fit wanting it now 🙂 . Keep up the great work.

    Well I have just gone through all 4 The Big Bad Wolf Series and the 3 Kings Series. I went to your site to figure out when The Goblin King would come out. Guess I will be waiting a little while. Maybe I should of drawn out the week or so it took me to read all of them and I wouldn’t have to wait so long. But I just love the world that you have created within these books and how I kept getting to peak into so many different characters I fell in love with.

    But on the upside I can start reading all your other books and see if they keep me drawn in just as the ones I have already read.

    Hi Taryn – If you friend me on my facebook page, you’ll have front row seats to release announcements (such as the one for the Goblin King, which I will be making there very soon). You’ll also be able to take part in Giveaways and contests and you’ll get to read teasers and snippets from the books that you won’t find here. 🙂 I do hope you enjoy my other work! I put the same care and passion into each and every one of them. xoxo

    I will look for you on Facebook. Thank you for the information.

    I finished the Chosen Soul last night. Then realized that there is a second book, read the first chapter before I went to bed.

    I just love all your books so far.

    I really love your writing, and am excited for your new books to come out. I’m especially excited for the sequal to”Forever Neverland”. Especially since I have always found the story of Peter Pan interesting. I just hope it will be soon, I’ve been waiting since December of 2012.

  9. HRKW says:

    Thank you Kate. 🙂 I’m working on BNL right now, believe it or not. I mean, literally, it’s the other page that is open on my computer. xoxo – Heather
