Some pretty grand news today: a Selene cover reveal up over at Mel’s “My World.” (You may have noticed the new banner up at the serial site.) The cover comes via Indigo Chick Designs, and I can’t recommend Skyla’s work enough. She also does editing and ebook/print formatting.
The Selene ebook and paperback are scheduled for release in January, and they will include both the prequel short story Brother’s Keeper AND the sequel Just Ask. There are other stories that take place between Just Ask and the events in the Dante Valentine series, but I haven’t told those yet. I likely will not for a while, due to time shortage. I am considering a Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign to tell the story of Selene’s years as a mercenary and her return to stay with Nikolai, but I’m not sure there’s enough interest in the characters for me to raise enough cash to make it a viable project for me.
Speaking of which, the prize mailings for the SquirrelTerror campaign have hit an unexpected snag, but I do plan to get them out the door before the end of December.
Lastly, there may be some news on the Steelflower front. If things go well I may be able to take the financial hit involved in writing a sequel, which is, I’m sure, welcome news to fans. It will definitely be a liability, though, and it depends on a lot of other scheduling stuff that’s up in the air right now.
Today is for going through the revised draft of Kin and layering in small details in the new scenes. Also, as soon as it warms up above freezing, Miss B and I might attempt a run. Yesterday we went for a ramble and stuffed her nose with interesting new smells, but we both need a hard run to work all the fidgets out. I’m crossing my fingers that the weather report is accurate and that we’ll get somewhat of a melt today.
Onward into the breach, dear Readers…
