I’ve been a bit quiet lately. I’ve had pretty bad allergies the past few weeks, so I’ve been under the weather and drugged up. Although, I know now what I’m allergic to: TUMBLEWEEDS!
How can something so cool and iconic be trying to kill me? Lurking in my backyard, sending in armies of pollen warriors through windows to sneak into my bedroom at night and swell my throat closed! Ack!
Fortunately, I have exterminated them all from the backyard. First my backyard, then the world … muwahahahaha!
In any case, I just wanted to give a quick update on the status of this fall’s book lineup and ask your opinion on an area I’m puzzling over. I’ve had to push everything back, because I’ve been either offline or in maintenance phase (focusing on correspondence) and not writing since the Attack of the Tumbleweeds began.
Kiera’s Sun (sequel to Kiera’s Moon) – will probably be released in late Sept/early Oct.
Gabriel’s Hope (Book I, Rhyn Eternal) – uncertain about release date. May be pushed to Dec.
Autumn Storm (Book II, Witchling Trilogy) – possibly mid-Oct for beta release on Wattpad and November for official release through ebookstore channels.
I’ve got a few short stories and other projects planned as well. Katie’s Hellion has 78 reviews on Amazon.com; I promised everyone a short story about Katie and Rhyn when it reaches 100 reviews, so I’m hoping we reach that marker this fall!
Finally, I’m exploring a couple of new marketing ideas and thought I’d ask my readers for their thoughts on potential new marketing strategies. My question for you: How can I better spread the word about my books?
If you have an idea, I’d love to hear it! Feel free to post it here or drop me an email: LizzyFord2010(at)gmail(dot)com
