A belated Merry Christmas to you, dear readers! We’re nearing the end of 2018, which means it’s time for my final update of the year! It’s been a great month, and I’m excited to share what’s been going on in the month of December with my writing and my blog relaunch!
So to keep you up to date, here are some updates on my writing endeavors in December!
Updates on My Books
Well, I finally did it: December 2018 was the month I finally became a published author! Only a couple of weeks ago, I launched my very first book: a collection of fantasy short stories titled The Silver Queen and Other Dragon Tales. The book has since been downloaded almost every day and received over ten 5-star reviews across all the Amazon stores and on Goodreads! It still feels surreal to actually be published, but I’m so proud of myself for finally taking the leap!
As for my other books, I’m still working on my novel draft from NaNoWriMo, which I hope to finish soon. Once that’s done, I’ll be able to let it sit and focus on the short story series I plan to publish next. I’ve also been considering writing sequels to the stories in The Silver Queen after a few readers have told me they want to know “what happens next”, so that may be another future book to look forward to!
Updates on My Blog Relaunch and Rebranding Campaign
Since I snagged a deal for web hosting during Namecheap’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales last month, I’ve been considering moving this website over to Namecheap before I start redirecting everything to my new domain. I’m still doing my research, but hopefully I can start setting up my new blog as soon as next month!
In the meantime, you can find a temporary Coming Soon page at naomilastrucciauthor.com. Feel free to sign up to my new author mailing list there for updates about my writing and future books!
Also note that because I may be migrating my site soon, this will likely be my last update for a while. Once everything is settled, I’ll be getting in touch to direct you all to my new blog, so if you want to stay in the loop, make sure you sign up for my blog relaunch list below! Thanks!
