Hello everyone! I just wanted to share the latest news about some upcoming events which I’ll also post on the News page later today. There’s so much going on I’m just now getting everything in order.
First, I will be making a few appearances tomorrow for Indie Pride Day. I’ll share the links in a post tomorrow but I’ll be on Angela Chrysler’s blog tomorrow and I’ll be part of a Brain to Books takeover on Goodreads starting at 12PM CT.
Next, I’ll make another blog appearance on July 22nd at Renee Scattergood’s site, Renee Writes for her Friday Author Spotlight. I’ll share more about any special announcements for the day as it gets closer.
Expect a few more appearances to occur during July so I’ll get those posted as the schedule is firmed up.
Last, I’ll be on blog tour the week of 8/14-20. Look for more news about that week as time gets closer.
In other news, I can’t share anything specific but I’m delaying (at least for now) my plans to release The Bow of Destiny in print. Something else has come up that may make worthwhile to hold off on this project for a while. I’ll announce any changes to plans when I there’s more to report.
Otherwise, I keep working steadily on An Arrow Against the Wind as my schedule allows. I’m also working my short story anthology (I know, I keep talking about but I have priorities!) but I’ve included a little teaser with a preliminary cover (comments are welcome). Also, I plan to complete the rough draft of The White Arrow as soon as I get An Arrow Against the Wind of to the editor for a final edit.
Welcome to all the new readers of The Bow of Destiny in recent weeks and thanks all the regular supporters!
