Happy New Year! + New Author Blog Coming Soon!

Happy New Year, dear readers! I can’t believe we’re already in 2019!

January always brings with it the promise of a fresh start, and this year is no exception. I’m dropping in real quick today to let you all know that I’m finally getting ready to set up my new author blog!

This means I probably won’t be sharing any more updates until the new site is ready. I don’t know yet how long the migration/redirection process will take, but once all is said and done, you’ll be able to find me at naomilastrucciauthor.com!

If you’re interested in staying in the loop and helping me relaunch my blog, you’re more than welcome to sign up for my mailing list! (Note: this is a separate list exclusively for updates about my blog relaunch. After my new site is up, you’ll be invited to join my regular author mailing list for blog updates and news about my books.)

Join My Blog Relaunch Street Team!

Fellow authors and bloggers are also welcome to submit guest posts to help me promote the relaunch! Read the guidelines first, then sign up for my list above and you’ll receive an email in a few days with instructions on how to pitch me your guest post.

Thank you to everyone who’s ever read my blog and enjoyed my writing! I’ll see you again soon in the next chapter of my author journey!

I hope you have a wonderful and productive new year! May you all have a blessed 2019!

December Updates on My Books and Blog Relaunch + Guest Posts Still Wanted!

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!

To everyone who has already signed up for my blog relaunch team and sent me their guest posts, thanks so much for your patience! I hope to be able to showcase your awesome posts soon!

Reminder: Guest Posts Still Wanted!

And finally, this is a 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!

If you’re interested in submitting a guest post, be sure to read the guidelines first, then sign up for my list below!

Post-Launch Update on The Silver Queen

Hello, dear readers! It’s been a little over a week since I launched my ebook of fantasy short stories, The Silver Queen and Other Dragon Tales, so I thought I’d check in today with a brief post-launch update!

Since launching last week, my book has gained 9 positive reviews on Amazon.com, plus a few more in the international stores and on Goodreads! I’ve also gotten a handful of sales and KU page reads after the free promo, which is actually better than I expected for my first published work. I’m now in the process of setting up AMS ads and planning for future promotions. So excited to see how my book fares in the future!

You can download The Silver Queen and Other Dragon Tales for $0.99 on Kindle or read it for free through Kindle Unlimited. If you choose to buy a copy (or you already have), thank you for your support! I hope you like my book!

P.S. If you’re interested in keeping up with my writing, you’re always welcome to sign up for my new author mailing list for updates about my upcoming books! Thanks!

My book launch started a few days ago, and I’m excited that it already has a handful of 5-star reviews! If you’re one of the readers who read my stories and left a review on Amazon or Goodreads, thank you so much! I really appreciate your help with my book launch!

You can download the ebook for $0.99 on Kindle or read it for free through Kindle Unlimited. If you choose to buy a copy, thank you for your support! I hope you’ll enjoy my book!

November Updates on My Books and Blog Relaunch + Guest Posts Still Wanted!

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!

I did it! *happy dance*

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!
