Six Sentence Sunday – Trouble Brewing #SixSunday

Hey all! Giving Six Sentence Sunday another blast.

Again, I’d like to share some lines from my Work In Progress (1st draft), the tentatively titled Book 2 of the “Touch” series: Warrior’s Touch.

I’m trying to share tantilising text without giving too much away (especially with reference to the soon-to-be-released Healer’s Touch). Hopefully this doesn’t give too much away…

Dusting the cobwebs away…

Things are a little quiet around here. That’s because I have decided that THE most important thing I do right now is write Book 2 (well, after “be a mother to my son”, oh, and, you know, “be a wife”).

Some work on Healer’s Touch is taking away from my writing of new stuff — I have to make decisions on cover design and the like. But that is coming to a close now, and I am very lucky to have my publisher to do a lot of that work for me (like the back cover copy!). Sure, I put in my two cents here and there, and then I leave most of it to them.

Merry Christmas – ARC’s coming soon

…And Kristell Ink are looking for readers. Obviously, there can only be so many free copies given away, and it may be more than a matter of “first in”…

Anyway, this is from Kristell Ink:

Soooo … we’re after some reviewers for our January release. Do you have time to read a fantastic fantasy book for us? We’ll supply the ARC if you supply the review.
send me an email – contact@kristell-ink.com and I’ll get the copy to you asap.

Where are things at right now? Well, the cover illustration is complete, and I think we’ve picked the font for the title/author text. Now it’s just a matter of a little styling.

Yeah…

Waiting to be Santa

Every year we attend the Christmas Eve Dessert Party hosted by some friends of ours (the 9th annual, this year). Tonight’s party has kept the toddler up two hours past his bed time… He’s just gone down (it’s MY bedtime, now). Time to wait for him to drift off, so I can sneak in there and be Santa… He’s 2. This year sets a precedent, I think. I hope I get it right…

Welcome to the Team…

I would like to welcome to the Healer’s Touch team…. dun dun duuuun… Matt Donnici.

Matt is working (like, right now!) feverishly on a cover illustration for Healer’s Touch! How mega exciting is that? Yeah! Mega MEGA exciting! We’ve been discussing concepts and finer details the last couple of days, and Matt has done amazing work shaping his initial sketch into something that looks really promising. Really promising. I’m excited. Can you tell?
