SOLOMON’S THRONE is now on Amazon.com in the paperback version. The Kindle edition should be up later this week. Thanks to those who have already purchased copies – it was a fun first day!
In other news…
I am at 75,000 words on the sequel to Solomon’s Throne, called The Hoard of the Doges, and will be finished by the weekend. I have a few beta readers lined up, and the first draft is coming out pretty clean, so I should be on track for a mid-September release. Stay tuned!
Editing will start next week on Undaunted Love. After much soul searching, I’ve decided to send it to the agent who suggested I write a book in the genre, and see how that goes. If she doesn’t want to rep it, I won’t query it, I’ll go the indie route. It was a difficult decision, as I am 100% sold on the author-friendly aspects of indie publishing, but I’m feeling good about my decision.
I have changed my idea for the August Camp NaNo. I was going to do a screenplay of a mystery that’s been kicking around in my brain for awhile, but after a boat ride with my daughter a couple of weeks ago, and a fun incident that happened on Carrot Island, I am going to be doing a YA mild-fantasy dystopian thriller. For now, we’re calling it “Where the Ducks Went” although this is NOT the title! You’ll have to read it to find out where…
After August, I’ll be taking September off from any original writing. I’ll let the beta readers loose on WTDW, and either take a break completely, or do a rewrite/edit of the nonfiction book I wrote in May of 2011. We’ll see how tired I am! Since I’ll be doing NaNo in November, it may be good just to take a break, work on marketing Solomon’s Throne and getting The Hoard of the Doges from prepublished to published. Then I can use October to plan the NaNo novel, which will most likely be another Christian historical romance. (NO, for those of you who’ve already asked, it won’t be a sequel to Undaunted Love – one couple can only be put through so much!!)
Oh, and I’m also helping my husband on his final production efforts of his upcoming nonfiction book called You Might Be a Liberal… He starts working with Streetlight Graphics the week of August 7, and is in the final editing and organizing stage.
