Many things this month (sticking to monthly posts until this peace-keeping mission is over):
– Writing Updates
– Guest Blogger
– Blood Kiss
Secret project Bards the First (aka Roaming Cadenza) is about done; just waiting on post-production.
Since I’ve finished all major work on it, figure it’s time to share.
When I first published Roaming Cadenza there were some issues with the manuscript.
The short version is that the final editor/proof reader and I had some significant disagreements, and I ended up doing the entire thing on my own.
Terrible decision on my part for a first novel; it resulted in the final product being much lower quality than anyone taking the time to read it deserves.
If I had realized how unqualified I was to do a full revision at the time, I wouldn’t have released Roaming Cadenza like I did.
Having said that, I owe my readers an apology. I’m sorry I released it in such a poor condition.
To make amends, I’ve been working closely (and tirelessly) with a couple editors and proof readers to revise and clean up the entire first manuscript, which I’ll be releasing for free over the next two weeks.
I expect the epub/general ebook version to be available by the end of the week, with the mobi/Kindle version available early next week.
EDIT: Both versions are now available here.
Following that, Dustland Requiem’s tentative release date is 25 June, pending any major issues.
And chapter four of Emarosa is posted.
Later this month, I’ll be hosting Dianne Harman as a guest blogger.
She’ll be sharing a bit about her writing, providing a fresh perspective.
Okay, so this is wicked exciting.
Amber Benson and Neil Gaiman have both signed on to act in a kickstarter indie film entitled “Blood Kiss” by Michael Reeves.
Normally I’m not a big fan of the vampire genre–I feel like it has beaten the horse to death, sired it, killed it again, infected it with the t-virus, and then destroyed civilizations before finally dying out for good…hopefully.
However, this particular film seems to have a lot of fresh blood (feel free to flog me for that) and again: Amber Benson and Neil Gaiman.
