Adventures in Writing: Part 9
Well, it’s been two months since my last post… my bad. It’s been a crazy couple months! So much has happened. I will try to keep this short.
The Lost Legends
My debut novel released March 17!!
The amount of love and support it has received is overwhelming. I am so happy to see people enjoying it!
The Lost Legends is the first in a Robin Hood/Tangled retelling series. You can find this YA/NA fantasy on Amazon here!
Fun Size Anthology
My short story, The Lost Warriors, released March 10 in this anthology by Circle City Publishing!!
It is a brief backstory of the Nihryst about when they were cursed, sent to war, and then abandoned. You can get a copy here!
The Last Summer
My next book releases June 17!!
It’s currently in editing. ARC sign ups will go up soon, so be sure to join my Facebook group if interested!
This is a sweet, YA contemporary romance. It’s light and fun, with a bit of feels through out. It will make a great summer read! Pre-order on Amazon here!
I am currently working on the second book in The Nihryst series, The Lost Prince. I’m about a third of the way done with the first draft and aiming to release in November! The 10th anniversary of Tangled happens to be that month, so what better timing is there? This book is intense, and I think I’m going to end up loving it more than book one. I already have the cover, which is absolutely gorgeous. My designer did such a wonderful job. It made me cry, it’s so perfect. I’ll be doing that reveal in a couple months.
I’m working on the sequel to The Last Summer, title TBA. The two books can be read as standalones but go together. The Last Summer is about Lila and Gavin; the second book takes place after and is about their best friends, Beth Ann and Dylan. I already have the cover for this as well, and it’s amazing. I’m aiming for this to release early in 2021, but we’ll see… it might be earlier if I get it done quickly.
I have a couple stories being published in anthologies later this year as well. One is another backstory of a character in The Lost Legends. The other will be unrelated, and I have yet to start it, but it’s for an anthology I am putting together with a friend.
There is also half a fae book done that I started a couple years ago and am jumping back into now. I have an incredibly perfect cover for it (by the same designer as The Nihryst books), and it’s already plotted out with over 40k words written. So, I might finish this and sneak in its release this fall. I’m not officially announcing it yet because I have a lot to catch up on before I can focus on it. The part I have written needs A LOT of work, as I have learned a lot about writing since I started it. But I love the story and am excited to finish it.
The Ursula retelling got a new cover recently… because I have no self-control. It was too beautiful to pass up though, and it’s the same designer as The Nihryst books again. However, I haven’t worked on the story in months. It’s plotted out for the most part, but I just don’t think it’s happening this year.
I have a ton of other stories started and ideas written down too! Including a sci-fi retelling series, where there may or may not be a Lion King story with humans and cyborgs instead of lions and hyenas… I cannot wait to share them all!
