Almost Done

The pre-order for The Keys and the Naph is up. Which means all my previously released novels are available for sale again. Now to wait for the box sets coming next year.

In the meantime, I’m working on a new short story to go with the novel being released in January. Once I have it finished and my publisher thinks it’s ready to go, it will go up as a free ebook for two weeks… probably sometime this fall yet.

And I have to get back to proofing the books set for release next year. My publisher wants the finalized text soon so she can move on with her share of the work.

And Nanowrimo is rapidly approaching. Not sure what I’m going to work on for it, but I’m definitely doing it this year.

Happy Labour Day

To all my readers in Canada and the U.S. I hope you are enjoying the long weekend.

Experiment Redemption Part Two is once again available in print and ebook.

A Political Marriage and Beyond Experiment Redemption are currently available as pre-orders. The Keys and the Naph will be listed for pre-order later this month.

I’m not currently working on anything due to lack of concentration and my life being pretty badly unsettled right now. Hopefully I can return to writing fairly soon since I still need to finish a short story which will be a companion to January’s new release.

Slowly Getting There

Today, after much frustration on my publisher’s part, the pre-orders for A Political Marriage and Beyond Experiment Redemption are up. These two will be released October 5th. But this leaves one more of my previously released books to go. I believe the pre-order for The Keys and The Naph goes up next month, to be fully released in November. Once that’s done, all my books will be available through Howling Wolf Books.

In the meantime, Experiment Redemption Part Two is also available to pre-order for the next two weeks and will be out September 7th.

My publisher and I have been discussing running a contest. I’m not allowed to reveal any details right now, but we’re both curious what kind of prizes people look for when entering contests online? Would you want copies of books? Would you want gift cards? Would you want something else entirely? Feel free to post your ideas in the comments.

I’m slowly getting my concentration back and beginning work on something sort of new. We’ll see how far I get before I have to set it aside for Nanowrimo in November.

Somehow my life has gotten simpler and more complicated at the same time. Simpler in that I’m living out of a duffel bag and on a couch without access to much more than my laptop. More complicated in that this is a temporary arrangement at best and I have no idea what’s coming next.

In the meantime, my brain isn’t wanting to settle on a writing project. I won Camp Nanowrimo last month, but I’d like to finish another project this month. So far the month is half gone and no luck… or concentration.

Because of what’s been going on, it’s been hard to know what to write, beyond to keep you updated on pre-orders and new or re-releases. The rest of the Cemen Colony novels are coming this year as well as the last of the Tales of Cemen Colony collections. January will be a new release novel and then boxed sets. (Well, minus the boxes.) My publisher wants to offer at least two, starting sometime next year, including a bundle of all six Cemen Colony novels and a bundle of all four Tales of Cemen Colony collections.

Everything currently available is posted on Howling Wolf Books website. My publisher keeps promising to get the bookstore up and running, but I know she’s running into technical issues. In the meantime, there are links for both print and ebook. Don’t like those options? Try Amazon or your favourite online ebook retailer.

This month’s new book, Old Tales Retold, is officially out today. There’s still one more day left to enter to win a copy over on Goodreads. I believe winners will be drawn at the end of tomorrow and two lucky readers will have copies headed their way shortly after. Otherwise, look for it available for sale in print and ebook online.

I won Camp Nanowrimo for July 2015, adding another complete first draft manuscript to the editing pile. Don’t look to see this one in print any time in the near future as it needs some massive edits. Although, I will give you a hint on what it’s about.

When his own daughter proved imperfect, scientist Docteur Sebastien set out to create the perfect girl. His daughter was left a pale shadow to the perfection of her father’s creations.
But what is perfect to one isn’t necessarily to another. Self made mercenary Andre had made a deal to obtain one of Docteur Sebastien’s perfect girls, but discovers a preference for the original. Docteur Sebastien is only too happy to make the trade.

In the meantime, I’m returning to work on what, I suspect, will be a much longer running project. Only part of this is the novel in progress as I’m working on a much larger fantasy world and also, alongside that, the roleplaying system which has been in progress for years now. Whether I manage to finish all or only part of it in this go will depend on what else happens this month. My publisher and I are hoping for big things.

Ebooks On Sale

Smashwords is holding their July Summer/Winter sale until the 31st of this month. As part of this, all ebooks published by Howling Wolf Books on Smashwords are 50% off.

In other news, I’m attempting Camp Nanowrimo this month, but my concentration is shot and I’m falling badly behind on my word count. Well, I haven’t lost a Nano session yet.

Just a reminder that Old Tales Retold is available for pre-order. There are two copies to be won in a giveaway through Goodreads. Official release is August 3rd.

Special Project

If you’re a regular reader of my blog or follow me on Facebook, you know I sometimes post digitally manipulated photos for fun. Some of these are also posted on my deviantART account. Well, my publisher and I were discussing what more I could do with them and we decided to put them together in a collection. I haven’t said anything up until now because she was swearing blue and green at the formatting and I wasn’t sure how it would turn out until I received the printed proof.

Well, the proof looks pretty good. So as of today, the collection, titled Manipulated Reality, is available for purchase. The link below is for Createspace, but it should be up on Amazon within the next couple days. (They claim up to a week, but it rarely takes that long.) It’s only available in print.

Manipulated Reality

Old Tales Retold, my new book release for August, is officially up for pre-order and also listed for a giveaway on Goodreads.

Old Tales CoverA sci-fi twist on nine traditional fairy tales where the damsels aren’t necessarily in distress and sometimes the princes are the ones in need of rescue. And happily ever after doesn’t have to mean married.
Including the short story Magic Gone Wrong
In the aftermath of a disastrous court ball, Zariah’s fairy godmother offers her ‘everything a princess could ever want’ and Zariah accepts only to find herself separated from her family and caught in a situation more nightmare than dream. Now Zariah must take her fate into her own hands to reverse the spell and reclaim her life with her family.

Just to let my readers know Experiment Redemption Part One and Experiment Redemption Revisited are officially re-released today. Information and sale links can be found at Howling Wolf Books website.

The next release is a brand new collection of short stories called Old Tales Retold, which comes out August 3rd. Pre-order information will be available June 22nd.

It’s Monday

Or at least it is here for a few more hours.

Feels more like Saturday and I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the heat. Maybe it’s the things which happened today. Maybe it’s just the way I’ve been feeling.

I still can’t concentrate to write or edit. I can’t even concentrate to finish my current proofing project.

And I don’t feel like I have the energy to keep promoting books right now. I’ve spent a lot of my time tired recently. It’s been hard even to write a blog post a week.

There are books available for sale and more coming this year, including a new release in August. My publisher’s website,, has all the information and links.
