Coming In March

So excited! Florian and Lucille and the gang will be coming to you in March! I will, of course, let you know exactly when it's out when I get all the links and all the other necessary information. I'm really excited. I hope you guys enjoy the first book in my Magic series.

Blood & Magic came about as a way to immortalize two characters from a roleplay I really enjoyed. The world is different and their personalities are a teensy bit different to fit their new setting, but they're pretty much the same characters. Although Lucille (based on a character that I had named Petula) is annoyed that I have a Petula in the novel that isn't quite so nice. I had to remind her, however, that she was going to be a villain, too, and probably would have if it hadn't been for Florian (Lorcan).

It's funny how some of my characters have more personality than people I know. They amuse me and vex me endlessly, but in the end they are the family I never had. My characters are real people to me so, of course, I feel for them. I get emotionally swept up in their problems. Like I said they are the family I never had. Although, I'm kind-of glad I don't have part-vampires and faeries in my bloodline. It might make things a little more complicated than they already are.

Eek!

So excited! Blood & Magic could be released as soon as the end of March. Just got an email from my editor this morning and she had a slot available in March. I am really excited! Can't wait for all of you to meet my diverse cast of characters.

Yesterday she showed me the interior design for my upcoming novel and all I can say is - yum! It is so lovely. Not to mention the book cover itself is very eye-catching and beautiful. I'm so thrilled. Everything keeps moving along rather smoothly. I'm praying everything goes all right. I'm sure it will. I'm just a worrier. I'm delighted. I asked my publisher if she would like to see the second novel in the series or if I would have to submit it the same way I did Blood & Magic.

Dragons & Magic is the second book of my Magic series. I am currently working on the third book of the series Centaurs & Magic. I already have ideas for the fourth book in the Magic series so I'm trying to calm my mind down and get the third one finished first. All the ideas for the fourth one are coming in like a flood and I do like how these ideas tie into the earlier books and the book I'm working on now.

Some News

Well, my friend has finished looking through my manuscript. So I'm going to look through it and start correcting the errors and then send the revised version back into the editors. I'm excited! It's not nearly as many mistakes as I thought there may have been - still enough to cringe at, but it could certainly be worse. I did try to edit as I went along chapter by chapter. Evidently that paid off a little.

I'm really excited! I'm going to fix the errors today with any luck and then send them back into my publisher later this evening. Then we'll see what happens from there. I've already seen the cover art and it's gorgeous! I can't wait to share it with you all because it's absolutely stunning. I'm very pleased with it.

I wish you all a happy Monday! I'm recovering from a cold or flu - something nasty. I keep hacking my lungs out, but that's not going to ruin my day. Going to keep writing and rest up when my body tells me I should so I can recover all the more quickly. Ta ta for now.

Musings

Don't really have anything new to report. Not yet. I'm still pretty excited that this novel is going to be out in the world. I can't wait for you to meet the characters.

I already have ideas for the 4th book in the Magic Series. But first it would probably be best to finish the third, eh?

Florian and Lucille are growing impatient for me to finish this third book. They're annoyed that they're not in it, but it is placed in a setting that is before they were born. So I think I'm going to have to make it up to them by having them make a few cameo appearances in the fourth book. These characters are something else, I tell you. But they wouldn't be my characters if they were any less than ridiculous. Ha ha. I do love them, don't get me wrong, but they are very demanding.
