5 Quick Updates

Just sending out a quick update for all of my readers and friends. Wish I had made this site a long time ago. Things have been very busy for my family recently. I’ll leave that for another post. This one will update you a bit on some new projects that I’ve been consumed by.

  1. There’s more Xarrok to come! Newest release is in the final stages of development and should be out the last week of the month. Additionally, I know many of you have heard me discuss Greshna’s Escape – Seeds of Revenge. That book is going to be available only through my website. Watch this page for more details on that shortly.
  2. My children have started writing Animal tidbits. They both enjoy learning about animals and my daughter has a dream of becoming a rescue one day. As part of that, we’re excited that she’s begun her research, with the incredible support of her brother. We will be putting out shorter versions for the Ebooks and the print will have tidbits, games, images and so much fun!
  3. I’ve been doing a lot of research on Women’s Health Issues. It seems there aren’t enough books that provide information for the most basic things women go through. I plan to make research easier for other women. Watch for that arrive the start of the year 🙂
  4. For years, Xarrok.com has remained neglected. That is about to change, but to start with, don’t hesitate to visit http://xarrok.info in the coming weeks. There will be some fun opportunities there.
  5. Watch for some snippets and guides that will be available for SciFi authors in the near term. We do a lot of research, this will provide a series of books that will touch on science basis, scientist speculation, and resources for your own development. It’s not going to be a long series or long books. They are going to be designed to develop a quick reference for an author who doesn’t need the internet distraction. I know the research process often leads me to the distraction, making the book writing process so much longer. It’s the hope these reference guides will help with focus, and avoid internet or facebook time sucking experiences.

Is there anything you’d like to know about? Drop me a question and I’ll try to get it answered ASAP 😉

Updates and newsletters

So much happens in short periods of time. I don’t have the room to update you on all of it, so I’ll just take a couple of quick chunks.

Dual Series Promo 1

We’ve been hopping over here. We’re preparing for an official launch of the Knights of the Immortals Series. I’ve talked a bit about it here already. It’s going to be a lot of fun. I’ve been enjoying writing it and enhancing it. I’m nearly finished with book five’s final revisions. Book three and four still need uploaded to the ebook networks. There are a few sites that I love working with.

Over the last few weeks I’ve spent a lot of time confronting something that usually made me feel uncomfortable, even knowing the value it has. Email is a very personal way of communicating with each other. It’s fun, fantastic, and opes the way for people to exchange active conversations. I love that! I was afraid for the longest time that I’d mismanage things, or that I’d chat about stuff that didn’t interest people. Truth is, I do that on Facebook, Twitter, and even on this blog (or any number of my other blogs).

Years ago I used to run a freelance business. Do you know I could have stayed in contact with some really incredible companies if I had kept an email list in one place? That’s how I’m looking at things now. I love connecting with my readers in the facebook group or on my Xarrok page. It’s a wonderful thing and so much fun! The fun part is the best EVER so . . . Now I am going to email all of my incredible readers.

Keeping in mind that I’m a mom, first and foremost, my Xarrok series, which is very busy right now, isn’t something I’d want my young kids to read. Knights of the Immortals and it’s coming spin off, Atlantean Progeny are a totally different thing. That in mind, I’m happily going to keep two email lists. If you’d love to keep in touch about all things Xarrok, there’s a page for that. If you’d like to connect and talk all things Atlantis – Knights and Progeny – there’s a place for that too.

We’re going to play games, get books giveaway free, and do live Q & As for the newsletter people directly. I can’t wait. It’s going to be so much fun. Watch for the next post. It’ll have info about some freebies and the links to sign up.

** Ebook Retailers **

 

I’ve had a lot of wonderful readers join me from Kobo, Nook, and Kindle. Late last year I started putting out what I call the Xarrok Saga. These are shorter sections of the full-length novels and will eventually lead to my releasing chapters to the coming novels a sneak peek for my kindle readers. This has been a lot of fun and it’s been very well received so far. Needless to say, this makes me very happy and makes the adventure worth having.

Going forward, I’m going to keep the Saga on Kindle only – Releasing the Full-Length novels to the wider Xarrokian audience as they are finalized. However, I don’t want to leave my Nook and Kobo fans out so, I’ve begun creating two more new, fresh Scifi/Space Opera series that’ll be released solely on Kobo or Nook. Once I’ve got more for you, I’ll make sure to share it.

Can’t wait to hear from you! 🙂
