The winter holidays are just around the corner. I’ll be taking a lengthy break, starting around mid-December, so you’ll only see a few more posts from me before the new year starts.
I’m happy and proud to report that I met my personal goal for NanoWrimo this year: The Hunting Grounds is now complete at just under 50k. That means I wrote about 25k this month alone. I’ve spent about a week now recovering from that effort! (Thank goodness for Thanksgiving break.)
I’m not sure about the ultimate fate of this novella. It needs reworking, obviously, and good going-over by my various writing groups and critique partners. But once that’s done, I’m tempted to try the self-publishing route with this shorter work. Given the nature of the story (dark fantasy, paranormal romance), I will probably shoot for a September release. Stay tuned for more updates in 2016.
In other news, a great book sale is happening right now at my publisher’s, Hadley Rille Books. They are celebrating their 10th anniversary by putting all ebook editions on sale for just $1. This includes the Hadley Rille imprints of Eolyn and High Maga. To see a full list of titles, visit the blog of editor Eric T. Reynolds. This is a great opportunity to stock up on your winter reading!
Speaking of winter reading, tune in next week to see my book list for the holidays. I’ve got some great titles lined up, some by friends or friends of friends; one by my hero, Guy Gavriel Kay.
Wishing all of you a great week!
