New Years Update!
It's been a quiet past few months for me as I work on Daughter of the Moon, and despite my hopes of getting it released by the end of 2015 the delays of moving house and all the other hassles associated with it have unfortunately impeded my progress a little. You'll be happy to know that progress on the novel is still going well, though, and with a little luck it should be hitting online retailer shelves within the first couple of months of 2016. Hopefully. Unless I get carried away and my ending ends up running on for 50,000 words again. >.>
Fortunately the next release after this one should be arriving in a much snappier time frame, as the length is a lot more manageable than the recent door-stoppers I've been writing. Besides progress on Daughter of the Moon I've finally (I think) sorted out a system for a mailing list that I can operate without giving away my personal details to anyone who asks. This is one of those innate problems with mailing lists that's made a neurotic crazy person like me very hesitant to set one up in the past, despite a couple of attempts, but this time I should be able to get everything up and running so that people can get updates on my new releases without having to manually check my blog and twitter feed. Who knows, once I figure everything out there might even be some neat bonuses and giveaways for the people who sign up!
So as 2016 arrives I'll be chugging away as usual with my stuff. I'd try and spare a word or two about how I've been neglecting my blog posts and want to get back to putting up little musings here, but my writing time's been so occupied with, well, writing that committing to anything here might be a hollow promise. I do have one or two ideas that've been rattling around my head for a while, though. Maype they'll pop up at some point in the coming months in between writing announcements.
Until next time, though, happy 2016 to everyone! I hope the new year brings all sorts of lovely awesomeness and productive endeavours to you all. :)
