Hello, dear readers! Another month has passed and I have a lot of exciting news to share with you! It’s been yet another busy month, probably the busiest so far, and I can’t wait to share what’s been going on in the month of November with my writing and my blog relaunch!
So to keep you up to date, here are some updates on my writing endeavors in November!
Updates on My Books
Oh wow, where do I even begin? I had no idea how much I’d be able to get done in just a month!
First of all, I’m finally about ready to publish my book, The Silver Queen and Other Dragon Tales! I sent review copies out earlier this month, so if you were one of the beta readers who sent me feedback on any of my stories, you should have a copy in your email! If you missed the email, don’t worry: I’ll be sending out reminders soon with a link to download the PDF.
As for when I’ll publish the book, I’m planning to launch it next month! If all goes well with my launch prep, you can expect to see the book on Amazon after December 9th! Wish me luck!
I’ve also been participating in my first ever NaNoWriMo all month. I set a daily word count goal of 2000 words for up until the Thanksgiving weekend, and after writing every single day since November 1st, I finally won NaNoWriMo yesterday! I can’t believe I actually managed to write 50k words in under 30 days!
The novel draft I’ve been working on is the first in a YA/NA fantasy series about dragons. The first draft isn’t finished yet and it’ll still need a lot of editing before it’s ready to be published, but at least I have something written now, and that’s the first step! I look forward to shaping this draft into what will likely be my first real novel!
Once I finish this draft, I’d like to let it sit and return to the short story series I’d been planning to write after The Silver Queen. Considering the amount of work that will still need to go into my novel, I may end up publishing these stories next. More updates on that soon!
Updates on My Blog Relaunch and Rebranding Campaign
For the first time in months, I actually have some real news to share about my blog relaunch! It’s a small update, but progress is still progress, right?
This past weekend, I took advantage of Namecheap’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales to get huge discounts on email and web hosting. I already set up an official email address through my new domain, and I’m currently working on setting up a proper Coming Soon landing page for my upcoming website. I’d still like to use SiteGround for hosting once my new blog is ready, but in the meantime, I’ll be able to collect emails through my landing page and use my new email address for my official author mailing list!
For now, I’ll still be focusing mostly on my book launch, but once The Silver Queen is finally published, I can really start focusing on my new blog! Again, to everyone who’s been waiting for a major update, thanks for your patience!
Reminder: Guest Posts Still Wanted!
And finally, this is another friendly reminder that I’m still accepting guest post submissions to help me promote my blog relaunch! There’s still plenty of space for more posts, so don’t be shy!
