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…
