Update: Seas of Gold, Camp NaNoWriMo, and more.

I know I haven’t written since the year began. I promise I haven’t forgotten about you, I’ve been going through a few issues and a lot of changes. As promised here’s my update.

Seas of Gold is in the process of editing and revisions, but there is some good news on that front. I HAVE A COVER!!!!!! And it’s beautiful. Stay tuned for my cover reveal. I won’t be doing a cover reveal party like I did with GO the cover reveal will just be me posting it on my social media. However, I promise there will be some event for when SoG goes live.

It’s Camp NaNoWriMo time and I will be there with everyone else. I’m already in a cabin with some of my amazing author friends including my prose ho, Candace Kuhn. This camp’s story will be book three in the series tentatively titled Golden Parachute. There’s big changes on the horizon for Siobhan and the crew of Dragon Hill. I hope you enjoy what I’ve got planned.

Part of the reason I’ve not been able to post is I moved from my childhood home in Oregon to South Carolina. We drove across the country from Oregon in a fully loaded car with two cats and a dog. It was one heck of an adventure, one that I don’t want to repeat anytime in the near future. I’m loving South Carolina, it’s not as wet as Oregon is this time of year and I love the people. I’ve even found the local library where I am currently researching local legends and mythical creatures for potential use in the Custodian series.

I’ve removed GO from Kindle Unlimited. I’m sure the program works well for a lot of authors, but giving exclusivity to KU limits exposure for newbie authors like myself. Because of this, I will no longer be exclusive to Amazon. GO will go live on Smashwords and still be available at Amazon, but now will be available in all digital formats including iBooks.

I’m about to graduate with my bachelor’s degree in psychology. Although my original plan was to continue on to earn my Ph.D. plans have changed. Instead of applying to graduate programs in psychology, I’m applying to MFA programs in creative writing. I swear I never saw this one coming.

That’s pretty much all that’s been going on in my life, what’s going on with you? Leave me a comment to tell me what I have missed out on.
