April Fools

Nah, I'm not going to play any jokes on my readers. But taking some time to break away and give you a few updates.

As a reminder for those who haven't seen the news, SIX MONTHS is now available!

I have also added some new items to the MAGERI STORE, including several mugs for the Weston Pack. You can find lots of cool Mageri gear to show off your Breed pride. CLICK HERE.
 There is also a new CHARACTER POLL on my sidebar menu on the website for SIX MONTHS. Vote for your favorite characters in this book, and check out who is in the lead! You can also access the poll HERE.
Now that readers have finished up Six Months, I'm getting asked this question a lot. Like most new books you read, authors don't usually have release dates on the next in the series. This applies for me as well. Five Weeks is currently in edits, and the cover design will begin this month. The plan is sometime late summer, but we'll see how this plays out. I don't rush my books in the writing, editing, nor the release.
Once I've finalized the cover design, the subject for the next book will be disclosed during the cover reveal. Seven fans might not know the way I operate, but my Mageri fans know how much I love holding the surprises. This will be fun since the book cover alone will identify who each book is about. No date set at this time. If you are a blogger, I will have a cover blitz planned, so I hope you'll want to participate!
 I'm juggling two projects at the moment. I'm finishing up the last pre-beta edit for FOUR DAYS (Seven Series #4), and I've begun the first draft for THREE HOURS today. These characters gave me a lot of trouble when I tried to write them into Four Days, so I swapped them out. Let's just hope they're finally ready to tell their story. I will also have the edits back for Five Weeks this month and be working on that, along with the final proofs.

Please be sure you've signed up for my NEWSLETTER. Once you do, add the confirmation e-mail to your contact list so my future mailings won't go to your spam folder. It's always a good idea to check that folder frequently anyhow. If you have Gmail, they are particularly bad about this, so check your spam folders.

Subscribed to my newsletter and have GMAIL? Check the folders on the left, and you might need to use "MORE" pulldown link to find the SPAM folder. Scroll through and make sure nothing in there was spammed that shouldn't be by placing a check next to them and then at the top, click the NO SPAM link. That sends it back to your inbox and will prevent it from getting spammed in the future. Don't just read it in the spam folder and leave it there! Do this once a month since Google purges spam every 30 days.

As previously announced, the Mageri series will be available in audiobooks as early as June. The pre-orders are currently in setup, and Sterling appears on Amazon. They're also available on the Tantor website, but we should have it ready to go pretty soon. If you know anyone who likes audio books, this would be a great gift or recommendation! Links will be available on my Books page, as well as announced, once they are live.

Thanks to everyone for all the reviews you've been putting up for all my books, and especially SIX MONTHS. You have no idea how much support means to me, and more than anything, I'm so glad to see readers connecting with this story. Writing about struggle is never an easy task, but we've all been there. We've all had moments in our lives when we couldn't ask for help, and it seemed like the sky was falling. The darkest periods in our lives are there to teach us strength.

This is a story of triumph about two people learning to accept each other for who they are, and nothing more. That a happy ending is what you make of it.

Hope you survive April Fools. Keep your wits about you.
