2016 is winding down. I must say it has been a busy one. In January I joined Paper Gold Publishing and Ella Medler, (publisher, editor and all-round wonder woman) who decided to re-invent how my work was presented.
The Sage Seed Chronicles (5 book fantasy series) got all new covers. She, then, picked up on the trend of some people thinking their lives were too busy to read full length books and decided to publish my longer short stories as singles under my personal imprint of “Quick Reads”.
All of a sudden I had an impressive stack of books to my name. Wow! Throughout the year, at approximately six week intervals, a book was launched. Thirteen of the fourteen books are available in paper and e-book formats, the exception being Tendrils which is available in paper only. You can see the available books on my book page here on my blog. Buy links are available there.
Several multi-author boxed sets came out this year, too, and my work is in a number of those impressive collections. I’ve frankly lost track of how many but my estimate is 10-12?
Through my wonderful previous publisher, Paper Crane Books, I have my fantasy series: The Sage Seed Chronicles and my steampunk book: Sunstone out in audio book format also.
My last official public appearance this year was at a wonderful event: The Bellingham Holiday Book Festival. It was the first time I was able to debut the full collection of books. The place was so full of authors, space was at a premium. My new book rack came in handy to display all the titles.
Due to a freak accident I injured my foot and am awaiting surgery. You can just see the orthopedic boot at the bottom of the picture. This means I have time to get a start on 2017. Do not expect another fourteen books out this coming year. But I will do my best to have new reads for you.
Happy Holidays in what ever form you celebrate. Thank you for being a part of my wonderful year. You are awesome! Comment (the comment button is under the title at the top of the page) and tell a friend about my blog and I will draw a lucky name at random and offer them a free e-book of their choosing. My gift to you. Hugs.
