2013 News & Notes


Hi. Been a while since we were here. This is my 2012 end of the year post. I know, right? Always late. That should get better after the next couple releases. And after life settles back down a bit.

I know, you came for From The Ashes details. It will be live, here, sometime in Feb. I’m offering it in paperback, Doc, EPUB, and PDF. On retailers? It’s going to be a while, months at least.

Why only here?

As of right now, I have 5 days to move and no house to take my kids to. The deal with that stunningly beautiful home fell-through at the last minute and my current landlord has chosen not to break the new lease he signed when informed of my coming move in Dec. (After 2 years, I’m month-to-month and he’s worried over being sued by the new tenant, I think.) Also, the IRS has decided that I owe them $10K, 1/3 of it due by tax day, with interest and fines still adding up until they’re paid in full. Clearly, I’ll be hoping for a payment plan or a quick hit from a sniper’s slug.

The book has to go up here because I have to survive if I’m going to be able to write the next one.

On the upside, my wonderful daughter is about to turn 17, I just found out I’m going to be a grandma for the first time by my 21 year old, and my mildly autistic son is reading - to me. I also may get book 6 out in 2013. Those things top the IRS any day!

I’m sure you want to help, but sadly, like the rest of the planet, we need money and I refuse to beg you for that. What I will ask for, is this: I have a small amount of merchandise and a variety of formats of books available. If you can, buy them directly (from this blog and my website) so I get the full amount instantly. The retailers take a large cut and make me wait 60 days. You can also tell the people about Life After War and my other work.

As I'm being forced back to selling ghost-writing skills on Elancer and Freelancer in what little spare time I have, I won’t be around to answer comment or messages for a while, but I will get through this and I will be back. Probably not until after summer break, though, if I’m going to get the next 3 books ready.

…Don’t forget me, okay?

Sigh.


Heading back for another round of putting Beta edits on book 5. Have a nice week, world.

I'm so sorry to hear of all the obstacles you are having to face with this new year! I just want you to know that my thoughts are with you and that I have a feeling something great will come of all this. My 2013 has started off similarly with a couple of bad speed bumps that i won't get into. I just know that for both of us this just means that we're getting all the negative s*** out of the way early so in the future when we tell family and friends how awesome 2013 ended up, we can be a little humble. I really hope that things are getting better for you. Congrats on the grandbaby! I'm so glad you have some positive things going for you in spite of the negative. I have told ALL of my friends about your LAW series (i'm a huge fan!!) and i will also pass along the info to purchase the books through this website. I really hope things get better for you soon! Can't wait to read more of your material. I'm a huge fan for the Changeling series and Alexa's travels as well :) You are one of my most favorite authors of 2012. Nothing but good wishes your way!

Angie, you just let us know when book 5 is ready, and I'll happily buy it directly from you (I always knew the pub business works like it does, I think I bought my book 4 from you so YOU would get all the $) Don't stress too much! and being a grandmother will rock your world, be prepared to meet the best friend you will ever have!

Angie, thank you for the great books and the thrill. It's hard to wait for the number 5 but after all I'd rather have it finished up and polished... I think, lol. Just know that your fans will be (at least I'll be) here ready to buy your book as soon as it comes out.
A question, if I buy it from here will I get it in Kindle format?
And again, congrats for the talent you have and your grandchild. Good luck and blessings with everything :)
