2014 brought a lot changes, starting off with the sale of Marcher Lord Press. My publisher underwent a change in ownership and name. It’s different now, but not bad. I am looking forward to working more with Enclave Publishing in 2015.
A year ago I was finishing the last book in the Follower of the Word series. Heir of Hope took me almost a year to write, but it was a year well spent. I can’t wait to share with you the conclusion to Rowen, Lore, Caleb, and Nierne’s journey. Right now the projected release date is March 23rd.
On that note, I hope to reveal the new covers that were commissioned for the Follower of the Word series sometime this month. They are amazing, if I do say so myself ;). So be watching for a cover reveal!
I am now working on a new series. It is a Victorian steampunk (which is a definite change from fantasy). Steampunk is a genre that can be set in either a Victorian or western time period and usually involves steam-powered machinery rather than advance technology.
I’m about a third of the way through the rough draft of the first book, Tainted. I forgot how hard rough drafts are (especially when starting a new series), but I am also enjoying the new characters and settings. Right now the series is under consideration by a publisher, but I don’t know yet if it will be acquired. In either case, I plan on finishing this series :).
So that’s what 2015 is shaping up to look like for my writing, and what an exciting year it looks to be!
