Hello once again! I hope you’ve all been enjoying a fantastic summer. For me, this year will go down as the summer of Stranger Things and Mr. Robot. If you’ve yet to partake in either of these, I can’t recommend them enough. Because staying indoors and binge-watching copious amounts of TV is what summer is for, right? 🙂
There’s nothing more frustrating than delays, whether it’s your flight to San Francisco, or twelve inches of snow that caused the vintage Castle Grayskull you bought off Ebay to get stuck in Nashville, TN. While some delays in life can be avoided, others cannot. After careful consideration, I’ve made the decision to hold off the release of Icarus until January 2017.
Why? I can say with 100-percent sincerity that this is due to a commitment to quality. I’ve revised the manuscript more times than I can count. I’ve received very positive feedback from beta readers. I could have released it this month on schedule, however, my editor has come back with recommended changes to make the book even better. At the end of the day, that’s all I want: to release the best possible book I can.
While I’m disappointed to announce the delay, it is absolutely the right decision, and I’m thrilled that the manuscript is in such capable hands. Over the next couple of months, I’ll be back to share the final cover and official description, so keep watching this space!
Odds and Ends
While I am deep into several projects, none are at a point at which I can talk about them quite yet. Icarus is currently undergoing line edits. At the same time, I’ve got another finished manuscript going through developmental editing. And while those two are baking, I’m just shy of 8,000 words into a brand new novel. Phew! I’m getting tired just thinking about all the work going on right now!
Super short and sweet update this month. The rest of 2016 promises to be extremely busy, and I look forward to sharing more information with you in the weeks ahead. Bye for now!
