After that date, the price will go to it’s regular price of $3.99. it’s a good time to get a highly rated book at a nice price.

Stirring from Hibernation

Greetings to Archer’s Aim readers! I haven’t been working on the blog for a while much to my own frustration. A combination of factors have kept me tied up so the blog has not been active too much in recent months. If you’ve noticed more activity recently it’s because I’m putting a little more time into the site. My focus slipped on a number of activities last year with a thyroid issue that has been addressed over the last few months.

I had hoped to have one or two books released long before now but the issues I had over last summer and fall really affected completing projects. When my doctor told me the problem, I reacted with, “That explains a lot.” I probably should have noticed from some symptoms that are familiar but they were not pronounced enough to make me think it was anything other than just being worn out from work, writing and other responsibilities. But it was enough to noticeably hold up my writing schedule. Lesson learned.

With the little health problem, I was often physically and mentally tired so the blog suffered as well as my writing productivity. I’m happy to say that it’s all taken care of and I’m back in the saddle of late and doing much better with my energy for life in general. It’s much like waking up from hibernation and I hope things stay a little more even for a while.

Of late, I’ve re-doubled my writing efforts and made a lot of progress with several projects. I have one book, All Things Forgotten, back from my editor and plan to begin a serious overhaul of the manuscript sometime next week if all goes well. After that, it will be more editing and some feedback from readers, working toward publication during the summer.

Otherwise, my longer novels code-named “Mage” and “Glove” were recently pitched to a few publishers while on a working vacation cruise/conference. Both of these manuscripts have been requested to be reviewed by publishers present at the conference and my agent is also submitting them elsewhere. I should know more about the fate of these WIPs in terms of how they will be published within a few months.

I‘m also hiking forward with another book starting the Broken Shield Chronicles. This manuscript is soon to be finished and will go to my editor. My hope is to publish this book later in the year.

Otherwise, I’m also beginning plans for some sequels to The Bow of Hart Saga. I’m not yet certain the extent of the work but I’ll share more as the planning moves along. The current plan is to publish a novella series that bridges the events of the first series with those of the second series. This shorter series will use new characters with a few existing ones in a parallel story-line into which the next events involving Athson, Limbreth and others will flow. Some of the work for the novella series was started a few years back and were scratched to keep The Bow of Hart Saga as a more concise plot. But with the sequel, there are details that need revealing through this short series to help create context for the main sequel.

I keep pushing onward because I simply love reading and writing books. It’s hard to explain how much better I feel but it is noticeable in how much I accomplish so things are moving along much faster than just a few months ago. There is also the intention on my part to update this site when I can afford it so look for news about that change along with others as the year progresses. Follow me here, my newsletter, my Amazon Author page, my BookBub page or request access to my private Goodreads group for more specific news and opportunities for pre-release copies of new books and some possible freebies. Following on BookBub and Amazon are great ways to receive notifications about my latest books. If you’ve already read The Bow of Hart Saga, please share the books on your social media accounts.
