I'm pleased to report that I finished the copyedits of Urdaisunia today, a whole week ahead of schedule! I'm feeling a little more confident about a mid-February release date, though it might be a little optimistic to think I can do the proofread and the ebook building by then. This week I'll work on the map and the Who's Who; watch for those to be posted here on my site too.
The big revision pass on The Lost Book of Anggird is nearly done, too. I'm shooting for Thursday or Friday of next week, and in the meantime I'll be rounding up some test readers for it.
What else is going on? I mentioned the Daughter of the Wildings series as being a future project. It actually isn't all that future--Book 1 is already a complete first draft, and I'm planning Book 2 and just about ready to write it. Since I hate it when the next book in a series takes forever to come out and also when the author seems to lose their way in the middle of the series, my plan with Daughter of the Wildings is to have all five books in first draft before I get into revisions and start releasing them. That way I can keep the whole storyline and continuity under control, and readers can begin reading the series knowing that it's complete.
Also, I forgot to mention last time that I'm also planning paperback editions of my books. So if you prefer paper over ebooks, you won't be left out.
Finally, I signed up on Spotify, and learned they have a feature where you can put a Spotify playlist on your blog or website. So, yay, playlists! I get a lot of inspiration from music as I write, and thought it would be fun to share some of the music that goes with my stories. You can enjoy them without listening to the playlists, of course, but if you want some mood music to go with the reading, or to get a feel for the mood of the book, you can check out the playlist. So watch for that, too.
