Most people start thinking of their resolutions for the upcoming year in December, and I am no exception. I have a list of things I want to do, but something in particular stands out to me. I love books. I love writing books, and I love reading them. A great deal of my daily life involves writing books. It’s a lot of work preparing a novel for the world. if I’m working for 8+ hours a day, I can write a novel in a month. That makes a few assumptions, including a seven day work week. I like taking two to three months on a title, mainly because I’m working on more than one novel at a time.
In 2016, I plan on releasing Unawakened, The Hound and the Chameleon, Summit, World at War, and Feather’s Angel. Yes, that is five new Dae Portals novels. Unawakened releases on January 26, 2016, and I hope you all have as much fun reading it as I have had writing it. I’m hoping to have The Hound and the Chameleon ready in either February or March, but we’ll see. I’ll be moving sometime between now and then, so it’s a bit up in the air.
I have recently acquired a lot of new books, so I’m going to share my super crazy to-be-read list. I’ll be (eventually) reviewing every book I read, so if you want to follow the shenanigans, follow me on GoodReads.
