An Update (and some Miscellaneous Bits)

It’s been a while.

The unfortunate part? I was sick with a terrible summer cold (that is finally on its way out), and that resulted in my latest book being delayed once more. Luckily, I was able to release it the day before what would have been a 2 month delay.

Astral Threads is my latest standalone work, and one that I admit I struggled through. The most I can hope for is that what it lacks in story length can be made up in content, and that it’s enjoyable. On that note, I hope to meet you all once more for the final book in the Resonance trilogy, which will be released this year on December 21st.

For upcoming posts, there will one “From the Muse’s Bookshelf” post focusing on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. The next book featured after that will be Haruki Murakami’s The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.

In non-literary news, soon I will have another corner set up. Stay tuned for more info!

An unexpected announcement.

Delays are unfortunate, but in some cases it allows us to pause and consider everything going on around us. We are all going full steam ahead in our day-to-day lives; we never really stop to relax, and when we do—whether in a staycation or at a place far from home—we worry about what needs to be done in the back of our minds.

I tend to push myself a lot when it comes to work; I don’t stop until a project is done, and even then work is not completely over. However, these past few weeks have shown that even though I’m writing (and working), I’m not superhuman. I may think it, but I most definitely am not. I guess that’s part of my perfectionistic tendencies.

That brings me to the reason for this post: My next novel will be delayed by one month, and should be out by May 21st, 2017. This is a decision that is the result of me not wanting to rush out content, as well as to better take care of my health.

Aside from the next “From the Muse’s Bookshelf” post, which will focus on Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” I hope to meet you all once more next month.

An Anniversary Celebration & A New Novel!

Four months really does fly by in a flash, doesn’t it?

First off, the sequel to my debut novel Resonance is finally out: Vociferation was released just a couple days ago, and I have to say that I’ve never been more nervous. After all, this is a follow-up to a story that I released on the heels of nervousness one year ago. Currently, Vociferation is available for $2.99 until January 6, 2017. Get your copy here.

To add to that, it’s been a little over a year since I started my writing venture. Every little step I’ve made so far, whether it be good or bad, has brought me some experience, and what matters the most is that I am learning as I go.

Switching gears, I would like to state the reason why my releases are on the 21st of the month, and why I don’t put in any dedications.

Some additional notes.

It’s been a (long) while. For the curious, I’ve been dealing with a few changes out in the real world, which I hope will be for the better, so all I can do is keep my fingers and toes crossed. On the writing side of things, I finished the first draft of my third novel, but I’m still fiddling around and thinking of a title that will actually stick.

I also want to bring to your attention something that can go unnoticed. That is, my works’ availability on the other Amazon websites. The “Published Works” page will also be updated to include this information. I have to offer my apologies for noticing this and posting it so late.

“Resonance” Release Roundup!

Wow, it’s been an exciting week.

 

First, I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday. Though Christmas is over, we still have New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day to look forward to. To be honest, I’m really looking forward to the new year, and hoping things will be a bit more positive. Life dealt me a few bad hands, but I did make some good memories over the course of this year.

I would like to move on to the subject of my debut novel, “Resonance,” which I released six days ago. There are probably more questions about it regarding the formats, and I’ll try to answer those questions here.

“Resonance” is available at multiple bookstores, all of which can be accessed by various devices. Note: Inktera, Kobo, Scribd, Nook and 24symbols all have apps. For the uninformed, Scribd & 24symbols are subscription services.

Also, aside from Instagram and Twitter, I opened a Facebook page. I’m still getting the hang of crossposting everything everywhere, so some places may be updated a bit earlier than others.

With that, I just want to thank everyone for their support thus far. It isn’t easy getting up the courage to publish one’s work, and even now it still feels surreal, almost a week later.

Take care, and may 2016 be an even better year for us all.
