Heavy Meddle Magic (Book 4), is just about done. I’ve got one more chapter to do, and then it will be off to the editor for a spit and polish.
Heavy Meddle Magic (Book 4) will be out in time for Halloween, so no worries. Thank you for all the kind words that we’ve received for Book 3. I greatly appreciate your feedback and am happy to hear that you liked it! I’m always grateful to be able to make my living doing something I love. Writing these books is like the dream job that I have always wanted, even though I didn’t know it was a dream job until I had it!
Until next month, stay safe!
A reminder! This is the book written utilizing some AI tools. You can read all about that here. I really have gotten into a groove with AI and allowing it to help shiny up the books with a little punch. Chapters 1-4 of Magic’s a Hoot (Book 3) were heavily generated (and then edited) from AI text as a foundational piece, so I’ll be curious if anyone notices a difference.
Hope you all are having a wonderful summer, and if not, remember—Halloween is almost here!
Magic’s a Hoot (Book 3), which is coming out in late August, is almost done. I’m working on the final chapter or two now, and it will come in at around 63,000 words. From there, it’s off to the editor. It’ll be released in e-book, paperback, and hardcover, and it’ll be right on time.
A reminder that this book is being written utilizing some AI tools, and I’ve gone back and forth with how much to use them. If you’re curious about that, there’s a section on the site you can go check out here that tells you more about it.
Hope you all are having a wonderful summer!
Owl’s Fair was released just a few days ago, and early feedback indicates you guys really like Astra and Archie. I am super-stoked because I have lots of ideas for this series.
I’m working on Magic’s a Hoot (Book 3), which is coming out in late August and I just uploaded the preorder for Book 5 to Amazon, so that should be showing up any day now. Book 5’s release date is December 15, 2021, and will have a December holiday theme.
Owl Star Witch is being written utilizing some AI tools, and the experience has been pretty interesting. If you’re curious about that, there’s a section on my website you can go check out here that tells you more about it.
Star of Sage & Scream was released this month, and I’m happy to say you all seem to like it. You really like it!
I’m working on Owl’s Fair (Book 2), which is coming out in late June and added the preorder for Book 4, Heavy Meddle Magic. Book 4 will come out just before Halloween, so that will definitely be our first Halloween-themed entry into the series.
I want to thank all my readers for giving the new series a chance. Magical Midway was moderately successful in that it sold briskly, but it never really knocked it out of the park. Mystic’s End was far more successful than I anticipated, but since it had a defined arc the ending was inevitable (even though it was selling well!) As I’ve said before, ending a successful series is a little bit terrifying—especially when it’s your first really successful one.
Owl Star Witch has started out stronger than anything I’ve released before—so thank you for helping me avoid a fear-induced nervous breakdown! 🙂 The reception has been awesome, and I’m glad you like it.
Astra Arden‘s first outing will be a little earlier than planned.
I was going to rapid release the first two books but have decided to go ahead and send Star of Sage & Scream out into the world in May, with the follow up coming out in June on its current release date. Star of Sage & Scream‘s tentative release will be May 20th, though it’s moving through the editing and formatting process pretty quickly, so I may send it out even earlier.
Feedback from the beta readers and my editor has been pretty good. Okay, I may be understating it—several folks have said this is the best book yet, so I’m pretty confident you’ll like it. Since I’m a writer plagued by insecurities, it takes a lot for me to make that claim. 😁
Hope you’ve gotten your Covid shot and are moving towards getting back out into the world!
