It’s T minus three months to launch and there’s so much stuff going on right now.
Shiny new website
I have a shiny-new website and I’m dying to know what you think. Lots of hard work has brought me here, to a point where I needed a professionally-developed site to showcase my fantasy series and hopefully, interact more fully with my readers.
There’s still work to be done. There are banners to develop and buttons to tweak, bits and pieces of coding and of course me getting my head around it all. Still, I’m chuffed with the results.
Coaching and editing
Dawn of a Legend is coming along just fine. We’re well into the third draft now and work is full-on. Early starts and midday siestas are on the menu, it’s the time when neighbours start wondering if I’ve gone mad, asking themselves why I am still in pyjamas at lunch time. But they know I don’t care about that.
When are we launching? We’re on target for a late April to early May release. There will be a cover reveal on 27th March and I’m wondering if any of you would like to participate? If you would, please visit this link to Xpresso, the organisers. I’d love to see my cover on your sites.
Sign up to participate in the cover reveal!
Path of a Novice is now available as a pre-release on Audible. You can check it out here. And Road of a Warrior has just popped up on the Tantor site with a release date of 28th February. The sample is not available yet though, and here I am frantically refreshing the site so I can be the first to hear it
Path of a Novice release date: 12 February
Road of a Warrior release date: 28th February
Remember, those of you on my newsletter email list get to participate in a prize draw. By purchasing Path of a Novice on Audible as a pre-release, you could win a signed, dedicated copy of book one or book two. I deliver internationally, so wherever you are, you’ll get it.
So back to work for now. Don’t forget to leave your comments on the new website!
Love the new website! Much more open with a great color scheme and layout! Your team did great!
Yay! Thanks, Victoria. I’m like a kid with a new toy!
When will the new book be released?
Hi Monika. Dawn of a Legend is due end April to beginning of May. I look forward to your comments on it!
I’m so excited to hear book 3 is almost here! I fell in love with this series from the first chapter. The character development and world building is fascinating, and the progression of the story feels natural and realistic. It feels like I could be right there with them. I love that the book changes viewpoints, it helps develop a lot of the secondary characters and makes the whole book more realistic. I finished book 2 a few months ago and have been eagerly checking to see when book 3 would be coming out! I’m so nerding our over the books that I talked my husbands ear off for a solid hour speculating and wondering about how the plot would develop and the fate of the characters. I can’t wait!!!
I read a LOT of books, and would easily say this is in my top 3 favorite series. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the series develops!!! You’re doing an amazing job, and I’ve been recommending this series to everyone I know who likes fantasy books. Keep it up!
Hey Jenna. It’s great to meet you. First off, amazing that you are enjoying the series. I am honoured to be right up there with your favourites!
So you already know when the book is coming out. Great. I suggest you either follow my blog or sign up to the newsletter. That way you won’t miss out on updates. (You also get the free short stories The Silvan Chronicles)
I also have an Advanced Readers group on Facebook. If you would like to consider joining, click on the link and answer the question.
I really hope to see you on the newsletter, or on Facebook, or simply here, whenever you feel like commenting.
(off for more coffee – need to get this scene right!)
Hi. I have read and re-read this series. I just love all the characters. Please tell me when the 4th book will be released.
Hi Jennifer. Book four should release late April, if everything goes to plan. I am currently looking to widen my network of advanced readers, in case you’re interested! Now thank you very very much for taking the time to tell me that you are enjoying the series. It’s what keeps me writing.
I listen to books while I work. My son and I are excited for the rest of the series on audiobooks. Hopefully soon. Love the narrator!
Hi Brenna. Glad you’re enjoying. Tantor have told me that release date for Return will be towards the end of October. I think COVID has probably set the date back. They don’t usually take that long!
