Happy Friday, y’all! Can you believe that it’s July already?! Eclipse the Moon is out in a week and a half, and I’m not ready. It’s like I blinked and June was gone.
But, since we’re so close to the release date, you can head over to the book page to find the third chapter! And if you still haven’t gotten your preorder in, now would be an excellent time—especially if you’re going to preorder from BookPeople!
As a reminder, the first fifty-ish (it’s closer to sixty but I can’t remember exactly) orders at BookPeople will come with stickers and a bookmark, shown in the graphic, plus a signed and personalized book. And you can order backlist books for signing, too!
If you’d rather buy from somewhere else, I’ve got some handy links for you, too. :)
Now that I’ve gotten the server all fixed up, I’ve opened up a Scrivener file and started poking at an idea I had last fall. When I originally wrote it, it was fantasy, but I’ve recently thought I could shift it to sci-fi, so it could go either way.
I still adore the 5k I wrote last year, so I’ll probably keep working on it for a bit to see if I can develop it into something marketable. Book three of Starlight’s Shadow ended well (eventually), but it was a slog to get there, so I’m enjoying this time where I’m not under a contracted deadline to have some fun. There are a lot of things I probably should be writing, but a new shiny story is always a little magical.
This story, if it happens, will be very loosely based on Beauty and the Beast, which means it’ll probably end up nothing like the original because I never quite know where my stories are going to take me. Hunt the Stars was pitched as like The Mandalorian, and yeah, maybe if you squint, but mostly it went its own way.
But for now, I’m taking a long weekend because Mr. M is off today. Happy Fourth of July!
