Mid-Year Progress and End of Year Goals

It’s that time of year again for me to give readers an update on where everything is in the Quadrant-verse. Yes, it’s another state-of-the-muse address.

This time, the state of the muse is good. Yes, I’m a little behind my scheduled timeline (what’s new?). I will likely need to petition my publisher for a few extra weeks to an extra month on this due to unforeseen events at the day job. It seems all of my co-workers coined this the “Summer of Surgery” and I was called on to hold down the fort while everyone was healing, or taking care of loved ones who are healing. I don’t regret it and I’d do it again despite the fact that it has sucked up the bulk of my writing time this summer. I just want everyone to be healthy and happy.

Nonetheless — this —  (yes, it’s a damn tear jerker in some spots)

Yes, Saving Sarah May is happening despite the fact that I’m woefully behind schedule by about three weeks.  It’s nothing a few balls to the wall weekends can’t fix. Of course that requires the family to cooperate and suffer this world with minimal attention from me. Sometimes this is doable, other times – not so easy. It’s also peak garden time, so I’ll need to give the garden at least a half hour every night until end of September (or everything stops growing). whichever happens first.

It may also require me to carefully schedule readings and other things.

Ascending Darkness is still on schedule. I’m expecting it to come out before the end of the year. Closer to the end, of course.

And we’ll see if Lucifer’s Haven or Temple Apophis make it out this year. Still debating what  to do with The Danbury Ghost. To send it to a publisher or not, that is the question. I haven’t decided yet. Might enlist my street team to offer insight and help me with this one.

But the state of the muse is good and I’m VERY pleased with the books I’ve put out this year so far.  Her Demon Wedding, if you missed it, is available. Wortcunning for Daemonolatry is available.  See the main page of the site to see all of the past 12 months’ releases!
