Good morning all!
It’s been awhile! I know I’ve been a bit quiet since NaNoWriMo ended, but that’s because there are some big things in the works!
Since NaNo was my last update, I’ll start there. I did win NaNo, finishing a little about 50k, bringing The Aldar Dominion to completion at 82k. This of course is only the first draft and is currently being worked on by myself and my AMAZING new critique partners. I’m very excited to have TAD coming along so well, and I hope to begin querying sometime in February.
The next piece of news is my favorite to tell people… HAVEN came in 2nd in the World’s Best Story contest this year, which I’m not going to lie, is incredible! I did not see this coming at all, and honestly it still doesn’t feel real! But, what this means is Haven will be published sometime in 2016 by Friesen Press! I’ll have more details in the New Year, but for now, just knowing that I’ll be published next year is making me HELLA excited for 2016.
So those are the big pieces of news I wanted to share. Aside from that, I’m going to have a LOT of editing to do in the next few months! Sanctum, Haven and The Aldar Dominion are all going to be edited to a perfectly polished shine. TAD for querying, Haven for publishing, and Sanctum for (possibly) self-publishing. But we’ll see where the next couple of months take us first. 😉
I’ll also be announcing the next book I’ll be working on in January when my business plan for 2016 is solidified. So in the mean time, I’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me thus far! You guys are amazing, and I could not have come this far without every single one of you! A special thanks to my parents who’ve been supportive in reading my latest works, as well as my best friend Shelyse for reading every little thing I send her way. Last but not least, a thank you to my boyfriend Matt for putting up with all my story ramblings and random ideas.
Here’s to the New Year! I have a feeling it’ll be a great one.
To everyone taking the time to read this, have a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays and a happy New Year to all of you! See you next year. 😉
Stay classy internet.
