Quick (or maybe not so much) update on my four former SP stories.
* Bound By Love has been officially retitled For Eden: The Shadowfire Ring. It will be rereleased in February, four years after its first release, but less than a year after rights reverted and it went out of print. Prepping for this release has reminded me of the ideas I had for these two. Bound was never meant to be a solo release. Those of you who read it before it disappeared from shelves know that Beliaz made a deal at the end that could lead to all kinds of trouble.
* Fallen will be rereleased at Loose Id in less than a month. It was originally slated for the first Tuesday of November. I’m scheduled to be out of town that week and that brought back memories of a certain trolling fiasco that occurred so conveniently during a previous out of country trip. Funny how these things happen while one’s back is turned and one’s internet connection is severed. Needless to say, I requested a different date and the wonderful LI folks readily agreed.
* My Ghost is still on sale at Smashwords.com with the coupon code HE39Z. This coupon will remain active through the end of October. I’m a bit surprised at how little the code has been used so far, but I guess that means you’ve all already read this dark little ghost story. I like the new cover art so much I’m considering a sequel just to see that model grace another cover. What do you think?
* Man Whore is still out of print. If you see it for sale somewhere, please let me know. Damn pirates! I have a couple of ideas on where I may submit it for republication, but I want to clean up the synopsis for the entire series before doing so. Some reviewers commented that the first novel seemed fragmented, like two stories smashed together into one book. I get that. As a series, that’ll make more sense, so I want to make sure I can sell the series theme with the first book, and give the editor enough info to tie future hints into the first story. Give me some time, dear readers. I will get this done, and with that, the next story in the series.
That’s all for reverted rights. In other writing news, I do have a couple of works in progress, but nothing ready to send out just yet. One is a contemporary friends-to-lovers theme that I’ve been working on on and off for a while, and the other is the sequel to Fallen – aka Bran’s story. With the work I’ve been doing getting Fallen ready to publish, Bran is more in the forefront of my mind, though further from being ready to submit. I should get back to him now…
Happy October, dear Readers!
