I'm so horrible at keeping up with blogs. But I can't believe I didn't post this before!

If you haven't noticed, both of my books got a makeover.

However, I haven't been able to get the new cover for SOMETIME AFTER MIDNIGHT on the paperback edition just yet. Apparently, you can't have text on the spine of a book if it's under ninety-nine pages.

So, I'm writing another story to add on to the end of the book.

It's titled THE MAW, and it's about a navigator on a spaceship who is bored with her life. She feels like every day is exactly the same. Until it really is. And then Nami has to take on a new challenge; navigating out of a temporal loop.

I have exciting news for INTO THE FORGOTTEN FOREST, as well!

I've been chosen to participate in the beta for print books through Draft2Digital (who I publish through now). As of today, the book is still in the "Preparing Manuscript" phase, which could take a few more weeks. They take a lot of time and care with each book, and they're an absolute pleasure to work with. For anyone going indie, I HIGHLY recommend their services.

They aren't a vanity press. They don't get paid until you do. And they do things like auto format your novel, and set up the front matter for you.

It's wonderful, and I plan on using them for many years to come!

I also plan on doing a reading of the first chapter of INTO THE FORGOTTEN FOREST soon. The date and time are TBD, but I'll make sure to keep everyone posted on here, Twitter, and Instagram.

Well, that's it for now, folks!

Talk to you all again soon.
