Update time!! Since an update is well overdue and I have so much to share!
First off, a huge THANK YOU is in order for those of you who have read my first book, The Moonlight Guardian. I have been completely overwhelmed by all the positive responses I keep hearing and by everybody's ongoing support. I certainly did not expect it but it definitely means a lot to me. It's great to know you guys are enjoying the series as much as I enjoy writing it.
I’ve been a busy little bee over the last couple of months. Between working at my ‘real job’, reading the latest releases from my favourite authors (luckily I read fast) and squeezing in time for friends/ family catch up, I have somehow managed to prepare the next book in the Moonlight series as well as work on a couple of new projects (I will fill you in on this later). Seriously, with all this going on at once I’ve barely found the time to sleep! Even then sleep just feels like it's getting in the way of things.
The Moonlight Prince is now in the hands of my editor, who is currently going through it very carefully to ensure it's legible and makes some sort of sense. What makes sense to me will most likely NOT make sense to any of you (except maybe to the friends who’ve learnt the art long ago on how to decipher the stories that can come out of my mouth.) In regards to the release date, we are looking at the end of May or very early June. I’m trying really hard to get it out to you guys as soon as possible, so my fingers are crossed for May!!
The front cover is complete (woo hoo!!) and ready for the big unveiling which has been set for Wednesday the 8th of May. So write the date down in your diary!! The blurb is soooooooo close to being finished! Keep your eyes peeled on Good Reads and the Moonlight Facebook page over the next coming weeks for this. I am very, VERY excited for the release of the second Moonlight book. As I’ve said before, this book will answer some of the questions you may have and will also introduce you to some new characters. I just can't wait!!
I mentioned earlier about some new projects. I am planning to make a completely new series of stand alone books. This means, each book will have its own separate storyline, but you may find that some characters are mentioned in or will ‘pop up’ in other books. It’s very early days yet, so I don’t know how many books are going to make the series yet but currently two are in the works. The two I have been working on are almost complete and I plan on having them published later in the year. One of the books contain a matter rather personal to me and has been quite a challenge to write, so it is important for me to be completely happy with it before I go on sharing it for everyone to see.
I am a huge fan of the latest genre called ‘New Adult’, where books are targeted at an 18+ audience because they contain some rather ‘naughty’ scenes unsuitable for younger readers. The new series will be under this genre. I am both thrilled and nervous to know what you guys will think. More importantly, how my mum will react. I know she will want to read them but I’m still trying to decide whether to let her or not. Sorry Mum!!
I will make more updates later regarding the new series (hopefully I will have a name by the next one!) and will try to have the blurb for the Moonlight Prince up as soon as possible.
Until then it's time to start counting down the days until the cover reveal...
Nine days!!! Only nine days!
