Weekly Update - April 23rd

Okay, so things have been absolutely crazy the last couple of weeks. I have so much to share with everyone and I'm so excited to do so, so let's jump right in.

First things first: Lady Knight.

On May 15th, Lady Knight will be starting its first book tour with Bewitching Book Tours! The tour is going to last for one month and will be making the rounds among bloggers and social media alike. This is going to be huge for Lady Knight, and as such, we can expect some big changes.

First of all, I have the final draft of the new cover!


Ruben has done an absolutely astounding job, and I couldn't be happier with the new cover. As always, you should check out his work here: http://www.rgramos.com/ The paperback will have the full cover, including the back which I'm not quite ready to share yet.

This cover is going to go live ASAP, so... in the next day or so!

Additionally, I've enlisted the help of someone I trust to do revisions for Lady Knight, so alongside the new cover, t…

Weekly Update - April 7th

Some days, inspiration is like a lightning bolt. It hits you out of nowhere, and there's little you can do to stop it if it's determined to strike you. That's what happened with this blurb:

People don't die anymore. It's rude, you know. Think about it. You die, your loved ones mourn, have to pay for funeral costs, then there's the matter of all your stuff. Your children miss you. Your job has to replace you.

So Dr. Takamori made his nanobots. Get injected once, and boom, you're immortal. Cancer? Gone. Internal bleeding? Fixed. Brain degeneration? History.

Sounds great, but what about the people that want to die? They have enough money to handle everything, they've done it all, and they're done. Life has nothing left for them. 

That's where I come in. My name is Hannah, and I kill people. They pay me, then tell me how they want to die. I take care of the rest. Most of the time it's exciting. They don't want to know it's coming, don't …

Weekly Update - March 31st

Hello everyone!

Unfortunately I mostly have bad news this week, but as with all bad news, there's also some good. The new cover and revisions for Lady Knight have been delayed until April, through no fault but my own. As such, the giveaway for Lady Knight will be delayed as well. Perhaps until May.

In Knight Captain news, things are going mostly smoothly. Life likes to throw curveballs, so I'm having to work through those right now. Knight Captain's first draft should still be complete in June, so there's that at least.

I've begun to look into the possibility of getting an audiobook of Lady Knight created, but I don't have any details on that currently. It is exciting to be looking into the possibility though - I've always been a fan of audiobooks and listen to several every month, so having Lady Knight in audiobook form would be fantastic.

Additionally, I am looking for alpha readers for Knight Captain. While certainly the book isn't finished yet, I do…

Weekly Update - March 24th

Hello everyone!

Some good news and some bad news this week.

First, the bad news: The giveaway for Lady Knight is going to have to be delayed. While Ruben has done a fantastic job keeping to our schedule of having the new cover complete by the end of March, I haven't done such a good job of revising Lady Knight. I'll have a revised date for the Lady Knight giveaway soon.

The good news is that work on Knight Captain is progressing steadily, and as of today the book is almost 40% complete! We have over 100 pages of Knight Captain goodness, and by the end I expect to have well over 300 pages. For comparison, Lady Knight was about 240 pages, so Knight Captain will be about 40% longer than Lady Knight. Daunting, but exciting!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Update - March 17th

Hello everyone!

Behold!


While not the finished product, this is the first draft of the color version of the new cover of Lady Knight. Obviously there are still some rough spots in the illustration, but overall I believe Ruben has done an absolutely amazing job so far bringing my characters to life. I am constantly blown away by his skill, and you should definitely check out his other work at his website: http://www.rgramos.com/
I'll have the final version of the new front cover soon, and I hope to be able to share with everyone the back cover soon as well. Right now we've been focused on getting the front perfect. As soon as I have the final version of the front cover, I'll make sure to post that.
In Knight Captain news, the book is one-third complete! This is an exciting milestone, as the storylines are in full swing now. In fact, I'm about to go write the first chapter of where things start to get really exciting!
Thanks for reading!

Weekly Update - March 10th

Hello everyone!

Steady as she goes this week. Knight Captain is progressing steadily, and is, at the time of this post, about 25% done. One fourth of the way already! That's pretty awesome. I'll admit I'm not progressing quite as quickly as I'd hoped, but I'm still on track for having the first draft completed in June. Emil and company are proving to be a bit more difficult than I'd expected. But, my pre-alpha reader Alexandra has been giving constant feedback and her encouragement is, well, encouraging.

We're very quickly approaching the completion date for the new cover of Lady Knight - it's hard to believe that March is already a third of the way gone. I was hoping to have something to show by now, but it's okay. A good cover takes time to perfect, and I'd rather not rush showing everyone an incomplete product. All I'll say for now is that Ruben is doing a fantastic job.

The Lady Knight giveaway is still on track for April 7th thru 10th. …

Weekly Update - March 3rd

Hello everyone!

I've decided to start naming these the "Weekly Update", since I'm able to post them pretty consistently once a week. You can look forward to a Weekly Update every Friday from now on.

Unfortunately for the inaugural Weekly Update, I don't have a lot to talk about. Work on Knight Captain is progressing steadily, and as of this post it's approximately 22% complete. We're still on track for a June completion for the first draft and September release.

Lady Knight's new cover gets better and better with every iteration. I'm not quite ready to share any sketches yet (plus I still need to check with Ruben about actually sharing them), but I should have something to show in the next week. That will likely earn its own post.

I've decided on a date for the Lady Knight Giveaway, as well. It will start on April 7th and end on April 10th, and to re-iterate, I'll be giving away three signed copies of Lady Knight with all the revisions I h…
