The Next Rogue Queen Serial is Delayed :(

Let’s rip this bandaid off fast: the next Rogue Queen serial is going to be delayed by a month or so. I was hoping to start it by the end of the year, but edits for Chaos Reigning just landed. And while my editor liked the story overall (yay! always a relief), it needs a few fairly big edits and not a lot of time to complete them.

All of the house stuff and moving has put me super behind schedule. Usually, at this point in December, I’d have about 5-10k of the serial written already, because I need to be a little ahead of what is posted due to my writing style (aka go back and change earlier things as I write).

Let’s just say that I am nowhere near that mark. :(

That means if I started posting around Christmas as I planned, the updates would be short, sporadic, and lower quality than I would like. So, delayed it is. I’m so sorry. I know a lot of you are looking forward to the third book—it’s one of the things people email me about the most.

Edits are due mid-January, so depending on how they go, the serial will hopefully start late January.

As a small consolation, and to give you something to look forward to, book three has a title: The Queen’s Triumph. And here’s a peek at Samara:

For those of you who wait for the published ebook, this shouldn’t affect that schedule. Right now, it is tentatively scheduled for late summer.

I won’t be around too much while editing, so I hope you all have a great holiday season! See you in 2020!

(Also, where did this year go? If anyone sees my missing months lying around, please return them.)

    Thank you for your amazing Books I got to read this year- I know where some of my time went I guess…. And enjoyed it very much.

  3. You were planning it as a Christmas present to us? Really? Awwww, that’s so sweet. Totally understandable delay. Looking forward to hearing what our beloved Samara has been up to in January. Best wishes for the holidays, hope you are enjoying the new house!

  4. Delays happen to the best of us, especially when you move….let’s not even factor in the holidays.

    We love you Jessie so you can breathe. I’ll be just as excited a month from now as I am today.

    Enjoy your new house,enjoy your holidays, and I will look for all your missing months along with mine. They are probably with the other half of my dryer socks.

  5. It’s sad the serial is delayed, but it is something we are getting for free so…. can’t complain too much :D
    Take some time to relax with the upcoming holidays and finish the edit in peace. I’m looking forward to Chaos Reigning *-*
