So... I've been MIA for a couple of months, but I've got a very good reason, I swear. In the middle of December I started a new day job, which required somewhat of a big move. As in, I was moving from Wisconsin (in the far north) to South Florida (in the far south). I had a month to find a place to live, hire movers, pack up my house, and get myself south -- and I'm talking far south to a region where people have no idea what snow is.
In the past few months, there's been moving, unpacking, fighting to locate boxes that were lost, fighting to get reimbursed for boxes that were never found, settling into a new job, and finding some good places to eat in my new hometown. My husband and I have taken the time to wander around town, try some wonderful restaurants, sneak up to Walt Disney World for a day, and lounge at the beach.
Oh... and did I mention that I finished writing a book and handed it in to my editor. Yeah, I did that too.
I have completed the final book in the Asylum Tales series! It has been handed into my publisher. It still has to go through several rounds of edits before it's released to the world, but it has at least started down that road. Of course, we also have to come up with a title. I'm still thinking on that one. We're looking at a release in mid-October.
To celebrate the upcoming conclusion to the Asylum Tales (and me finally completing my move), I am giving away a signed copy of ANGEL'S INK, the first book in the Asylum Tales series. With the final book coming out this fall, now is a great time to start the series. Just leave me a comment below telling me what you're most looking forward to this summer. I will announce a winner on Sunday, March 9. (Sorry, this is a US-only giveaway. I promise that I'll do an international giveaway closer to the new book release.)
In the meantime, I am working on a brand new world with a brand new set of characters. I am really excited to start writing on this one. I wish I could tell you more... but it's still too early. I want to keep it to myself for a little while longer. Don't worry. You'll meet my new friend soon enough.
