Where did this summer go? I swear I just blinked and it was over!
I’m working on the final book in the Storms in Amethir series, and I have ideas for the third book in the Circle City Magic book that are beginning to coalesce. I’ve been doing research in the form of sailing again, and I have some amazing photos to share from my Friends Good Will excursion in July. I also have cover art for Witchery’s End, and I hope to share that with you as soon as the cover itself is finalized.
In the meantime, I’ve had a funny little shakeup in my personal life. Not a bad one, just one that is going to require some readjusting of my schedule. I am fortunate enough to be going full-time with my day job, starting October 1. That’s great for my financial situation, not to mention giving me vacation and health insurance!
That’s not so great for my writing schedule.
Basically I’ll be adding another 8 hours to my work week, which means I’m taking away about 9.5 hours of writing time from my work week (allowing for my commute). That doesn’t mean I’m going to stop writing, of course! It just means that I’m going to probably finish projects a little slower.
I’m able to write quickly thanks to my particular writing method, but I can only sustain that for about a month at a time, and then I need to slow down again. So I’m probably looking at only getting Witchery’s End out this year, instead of Witchery’s End and A Stranger in Circle City.
In fact, it’s starting to look difficult for me to get Witchery’s End out by the end of the year.
I’m really sorry! But I hope you’ll all understand why I need to make this change, and be a little forgiving with me as I do some adjustments to my book schedule.
In the meantime, have some sailing pictures!
