Wrapping Up the Week: New Readers & My Editing Schedule

the-bow-of-destiny-by-p-h-solomonJust sharing a few notes about my writing happenings from this week.

The Bow of Destiny remains on sale since it’s selling so well. If you haven’t read it yet, just click on one of the sales banners to the right or below and have a look. The response has been great and the price won’t remain discounted so low for much longer.

An Arrow Against the Wind is in progress and rounding out more this week as I continue work on it but more on that in a moment…

Here’s a really nice follow-up to something several weeks ago: a few of you may recall that I mentioned last month that The Bow of Destiny was being considered for use by a teacher who follows me. Well, here’s the update to that from my Twitter feed:

That’s wonderful news and I hope those students are getting something out of it as well as enjoying it. I can remember reading about the riddle contest between Bilbo Baggins and Gollum as a first-grader. It was a very fascinating scene to read and I wanted to read more. Once I was much more proficient as a reader several years later, I read The Hobbit. I think fiction of various kinds is important to read in school and this recent re-blog was interesting in that many of the authors who were asked about what should be included in school curriculum included a lot of speculative books. I’m glad someone is already using my book in a class – WOW!

Additionally, someone recently DM’d me on Twitter to ask if The Bow of Destiny is appropriate Book Cover Arrow Against The Wind Revised (2)for a 12 year old girl who loves fantasy. The book is actually written for all ages above about 13 or 14 so I suggested she read it first to make sure that she thinks it’s appropriate for a 12 year-old.

Now to An Arrow Against the Wind: I heard back from my editor and we’re a go with an open schedule for An Arrow Against the Wind pretty much whenever I get it ready. Once this second book is with the editor a final time, I hope to complete the rough draft of The White Arrow and maybe some work on a short story anthology. I’ll be buckling down on An Arrow Against the Wind as much as possible and that’s important because of these – the first is from a reader commenting on his rating on Goodreads and the second from a reviewer on Amazon:

Yep, people are starting to clamor for the next edition. With that being said, I’m working on a firm release date but it seems like An Arrow Against the Wind will be released somewhere between mid-December and early January if I can work everything out. I’ll make a firm decision based on progress in a few weeks and make the announcement then and make some plans for release events. Have a good weekend, everyone!
