Can you believe 2020 is finally at its very end?? What a wild unexpected year it has been! And we’re not out of the woods yet… Well, on a more positive note, this month I’m sharing with you all lots of bookish fun to look forward to! What books came out this year? What books do I have lined up for next year? Etc. I hope your December has been full of holiday cheer and perhaps there is a story or two below that will peak your interest.
Onto the news!
2020 Book Releases
This year Wings of Ruin was released concluding my dark fantasy Otherworld Trilogy and though it took much longer than anticipated to write, I hope it was worth the wait. I currently don’t have any plans to revisit the world of Oneiroi, but let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in. Never say never, right?
This year also celebrates the release of Vicinus, the third book in my dystopian Walking Shadows series. It was really fun to explore this urban corner of the world and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
As always I am so grateful for your continued support which allows me to keep following this dream path of mine to write stories but I understand all too well how quickly buying books can overwhelm the bank account. While of course your purchasing of my books is sincerely appreciated (especially because it puts food in my belly), some other ways you can support me while respecting your budget is to request your local library to purchase my books, write reviews, or any of the things listed in the graphic that applies not only to small business but to artists as well.
2021 Book Plans
As you all are quite aware by now, even the best laid plans can go awry so I will preface this section by saying these are my current/tentative plans for 2021.
Next year I hope to publish the fourth book in the Walking Shadows series, Ultio, as well as the fifth which will conclude that series. I also have a secret project related to this series that I’m keeping hushed for now but I hope you’ll be as excited by it as I am when I finally announce it. Those three things are my top priority goals for next year but I’m really hoping I will also be able to dive into a new urban fantasy series inspired by Aztec legends and mythology. I’ve been slowly working on this project for months now and can’t wait until I can give it my full attention. I’m considering the option of writing all five books (yes the plan currently allots for five books in the series) and then publishing them each a month apart so you don’t have to endure any horribly long waiting between each release. Let me know how you feel about that idea versus writing them one at a time and publishing whenever I finish each book.
I am so excited about these future projects!! I’m really hoping I’ll be able to find the energy and time to get as much quality new content out to you as possible (also because I’m simply excited to see where these stories and characters will go!). And for those of you who’ve been with me since the beginning, don’t worry. I haven’t forgotten my space opera or historical/paranormal standalone novels. I’m not sure when those will demand their turn in the spotlight but oh no, I haven’t forgotten those fun projects at all.
I’m afraid to hope for too much in the new year but I am certainly glad to see 2020 coming to a close. I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and I hope you are all able to spend the holidays with loved ones even if only virtually. No matter the hardships this year has brought, this is a season of hope and I pray you find peace and refreshment in it.
So that about sums up the news for December! I’m sorry for sending out so many posts this month but at least they all contain exciting book-related news so hopefully you’re not too annoyed? You all are fantastic, you really are and I hope you know that. Well, see ya next year!
