As I write this, we are almost halfway through August, which is bonkers. My last substantial writing update was at the end of June, and I'm happy to say that I have been very productive in the past month and a half. Without further ado:
Right now, the cover is being finalized for my upcoming novella, Chasing the King in Yellow. It's a sequel to my first novel, Courting the King in Yellow, and it catches up with the cast of that book, who have been in the background during the events of the last two Parted Veil novels. If all goes according to plan, I'll have a cover reveal next week, and the book will be out sometime in September. the symbol above is my version of the Yellow Sign, which features prominently in the book and the series as a whole.
I have finished revising and updating my podcasting book, Making Ear Candy, and I'll be posting about the print and digital versions being available next week. I'm super proud of this book.
Jolene and I are also working on edits for Haunted, the second novel in the Woodsview Murders series. Our goal is to have this one out in time for Halloween, and I think you'll agree it was worth the wait. I am so excited for people to see what Jolene and I have done with the sequel. This series continues to be one long love letter to '80s slasher films. You'll need to bring your baskets, because like the first one, there are so many Easter eggs for horror fans.
Oh! I almost forgot--I wrote a brand new short story, that you will be reading soon for free! Jolene has put together another amazing writer and artist showcase--the Summer of Screams--and my story will be going up sometime in the next week or two. The theme for this showcase is summer camp, and since Friday the 13th is my favorite horror series of all time, you can imagine how excited I was to be a part of this showcase. You can read all of the stories and see some great artwork at jolenehaley.com.
I'll be back next week with more updates!
