I didn't post this earlier because I didn't want you to be scared it was an April fools.
I have something close to a schedule for the year.
Barring anything resembling a move or other nonsense, I should be able to stick relatively close to it.
You know how it normally has gone this last 5 years, I say it'll be this date or that and it's plus or minus a couple weeks. Nothing ever works the way I want, so let's not set these in stone.
Under normal circumstances, the schedule is close-ish.
The last year and half has been my own personal version of author hell.
But the chaos is pretty much over.
My house is 80% finished rebuilding.
My pool is 75% done.
I am relinquishing the reigns to Mr. Brown and the rest is his problem. I found a maid and everything is feeling pretty much awesome in my house, almost dust free.
Spring Break is over Monday.
My temporary office is being decorated and put together tomorrow.
So now are going to go back to normal, what was normal a year and half ago. Not this last year and half of hatefulness.
I am going to finish my series books off first.
It is on!!!!!
So the writing schedule will be close to this -
Third Time's a Charm - Publishing date is set firmly as April 17th. The details of this series are intense. It's taking a lot of focus, having the office now I want to spend a couple days really pouring over it in silence and privacy to make sure I have every detail the way I want. I will hand it over, like the hostage I have been keeping it, on April 17th.
Next is Puck Buddies. I am writing it, not sure if I am publishing it. Thats all I can say. If I do publish it, it will be on April 24th.
Then it's The Last Hour. May 10th is the date I have penciled in.
Then Valiant. I have May 22 as my hopeful date.
After that I am finishing the revisions on Cursed and all the Devil's Roses. We are in the middle of the new covers and I am SOOOOO excited for you to see them. I suspect the revisions will take me around a month. Which puts the release of Betrayers around June 5th. Both Betrayers will publish at the same time. The sexy one and the YA one.
Try to be patient, just a little longer. I do have the Emerald City book signing in this time. And the England signing in Birmingham. Which means I could be a bit jet lagged and it could delay the tight schedule. With a schedule this tight, I have to hope for 3 easy months. If not it will be off.
This is the actual order I have written down for the writing, editing, rewriting, and publishing.Third Time's a Charm - April 14th
Puck Buddies - Possibly April 24th
The Last Hour - May 10th
Valiant - last book in series - May 22nd
Betrayers - last book in series - June 5th
Born - the rewrite
Born to Fight - the rewrite
Reborn - the rewrite
Four Crimson Corners
Hang Five - last book in series
The End of Lies
The End of Love - last book in series
The Earth's End - last book in series
White Girl Wedding
