Summertiiiiiiiiiime…and the livin’ is easy. (Admit it, you sang that.)
It’s June and time doesn’t stop. Piper, aka Hyper Piper, aka Piper Monster, is five months old now and bounces between being adorable and being a pain in my side. Ah, puppyhood!
In the meantime, I’ve been to the California Library Association Convention, had a booth at the YLAAF Celebration of the Arts and Music Festival, and been writing, editing, writing, and editing.
WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THAT PIRATE-DRAGON STORY
And What’s In It For You?
The books are all done. The books are all edited.
The clock has started. I’ve formatted BLOOD DRAGON RISING for Kindle and for paperback and will shortly format it for hardcover. Do I sell a lot of hardcovers? No. I may not sell any, beyond the copy I purchase for myself.
For an author, hardcovers of your books are like having a tiara–you didn’t know you wanted it until you put it on your head and felt like a princess, a queen, a RULER. It’s worth it to me.
Look for BLOOD DRAGON RISING on October 7th, 2022. MOON DRAGON FALLING will be released in December, and NEW DRAGON SOARING in February 2023. My birthday is in February, so it all seems to make sense.
I’m still looking for beta readers for the second and third books, if you’re interested. I realize what a big ask it is, so I appreciate those of you who have stepped forward. And for those of you who love to read large, sprawling fantasies, I’m happy to supply the first book so you can read the whole set.
In the meantime, looking for covers? Hop over to my blog. https://gaylecarline.blogspot.com/2022/04/the-countdown-has-started.html
IN THE MEANTIME…WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
There’s nothing much happening until September, when I give a workshop at the California Writers Club of Long Beach, then teach at the Southern California Writer’s Conference. I’ll keep you informed of the what and when.
KEEP READING PEEPS!
