back from my hiatus…again. It feels like I drop off the web every few months.
Every time I do, I hate it. I feel like this has to be the last time. Unfortunately,
work never stops for me and I mean my day job—not my writing. Ideally, I wish I
had time to quit and focus solely on my books. After all, that’s really how you
become successful as an author. But in reality, I have to keep my head above
water and my bills paid. Anyone want to chat about student loans? Bleh.
put it in perspective, an average day I log eleven hours at work, five to six
days a week. When I get home, I still have to do basic errands and take care of
my monster (dog). They’re not excuses. They’re just the reasons I’ve been so
So where does that leave us?
is still coming out. Shortly.
time I read through it, I found one more thing I wasn’t happy with and changed.
I finally sent it off to be proofread. When I get it back, it’s just a matter
of formatting and release.
won’t wait for some special release date. The second I get it, it’s out. I’ll announce on twitter too.
of Ash is the sequel to Burning. It’s funny, Relics was half done before
Burning was even released. However, Relics won’t be out until next year. I have
another project (released under a different pen name) to finish up. It couldn’t
be less related and is romance based (seriously!). It sounds crude and hopeless
but romance is where the sales are and sales = me cutting back on my day job.
link the romance to my account here, but after it’s done, Relics is next up.
I’ll be making an effort to stay around the web and keeping everyone updated.
Thanks for following. <3
I kept talking about a new
Windswept cover and it finally arrived. I love it! Granted I was having trouble
putting the title on the cover without covering up the badass picture beneath.
Here it is.
This will replace the old cover
on every selling platform. So no more of this cover:
My cover artist always does a
great job, but I’ve finally learned to stay out of the cover-making process so
badass creations (like the new cover) can be made. Her information can be found
All this inevitably leads us to
the re-release date of the novel. I mentioned before that it’ll have the first chapter of the novella in it, along with a snippet of Burning in a
Memory. I know I’ve given some false hope on this before, but the novel is done
being tweaked. It’s sitting on my desk waiting for one last read over. So I can
affirmatively promise two weeks from here. I still work 60 hours a week at my
day job so, unfortunately, weekends are the only time I have to dedicate to the
You’ll hear all about the
re-release on my twitter so follow me @CSibline. I promise I don’t over tweet
so you can get the update without reading through my blog. J
is being re-released in March. This date is final. The book will have a completely
new cover, which you’ll see on this blog first. The book will have an excerpt
from Burning in a Memory. The book will also have the first chapter of the novella.
The Airborne Novella information hasn’t even been released on the blog and it
won’t be for a few months yet so this absolutely is the first look.
said, I expect the novella out before the end of this year.
More details to come. Thank you for your patience. :)
owe The Airborne Saga readers an explanation as to Windswept’s temporary
absence on the market. I realize some people have been waiting for its
re-release— originally scheduled for today. Unfortunately, it’s not going as I
expected. I originally pulled the book from the market for some minor tweaking and to redo the cover.
I’ve finished with the manuscript. I’ve changed the ending to include the
existence of the Airborne Novella coming out later this year. Now I am just
waiting for the editing and
at the tail end of the process so I’m optimistic it won’t be much longer. I
apologize it’s taken this long in the first place. I’m being more careful with
announcing a firm date, as I’ll post it sooner if I’m able. However, I can
promise that when it is posted you will hear about it. My twitter @csibline and
this blog will have updates and links.
I’ve been talking about on the web lately has been Burning related. Burning’s
sequel, Relics of Ash coming soon…
post, however, is here to show The Airborne Saga some love.
Back when Windswept
came out, I wrote a post regarding the things that would follow. It is true,
there isn’t going to be a fourth book in the saga. I’ve considered it in the
past, but everyone’s story has to end eventually. I promised a novella on the
series, before Avery was ever in the picture, to fill in the blanks with
Jericho and Mikhail. Now I’m here to announce an Avery novella—a follow up to
Windswept and all of the answers left hanging there.
price will be .99 cents and I’ll have a release date shortly. It will be 2015,
but I’m expecting early—January or February. Not too far off from Relics of
addition to the novella, I’m creating a digital edition of the saga with all Airborne
books (and soon to be novella) in one. This will reduce the price of the
individual books. This will have its own, individual cover, but will not be a
different book from what’s already on the market.
will also be getting a new cover eventually.
it’s closer to release date, I’ll post specific details. Hold on Avery and
Mason fans. Won’t be too much longer now!
been a long time since I’ve updated, but I’m happy to report that most of the
time in-between, I’ve been hard at work on the second book in the Burning
was initially waiting to reveal the name of the second book until I had the
cover in hand, but I let it slip at an interview. It didn’t even cross my mind.
So now that it’s out, the second book is called Relics of Ash. I feel like
without a cover I should type that in big font or something…
Book Two: Relics
I feel better now. Anyway, I know the book will be out sometime next year but
the first chapters will be released before then. I’m also going to have a
synopsis, a tab for it, and a goodreads page sooner than later. If you want
another spoiler, it will be Mistel on the second cover.
in the meantime, I’ll work on being more available, finishing the book, and
getting Burning going on another tour. Updates to come.
