Hiatus and such

I’m 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.
To 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 far behind.

So where does that leave us?
Windswept is still coming out. Shortly.
Every 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.
I won’t wait for some special release date. The second I get it, it’s out. I’ll announce on twitter too.

After Windswept?

Relics 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.
I won’t link the romance to my account here, but after it’s done, Relics is next up.

Now I’ll be making an effort to stay around the web and keeping everyone updated. Thanks for following. <3
