Happy St. Patrick's, everybody!
In celebration of this, I bring some fittingly jaunty music (Changing Your Demeanour, performed by The Chieftains), and some decent to great writing news!
First up: As of March 6th, I officially have the publishing contract in hand for Bloody Relations with Sea Lion Press! Though the editing work to make it publish-worthy is still being organized, the estimated mid-year publication date hasn't changed; with any luck, this Civil War What-If should be out on Kindle and physical shelves before the end of this summer!
Next: Though prelim and job work (and the ever-present editing-while-writing reflex I've often suffered from) have regrettably combined once again to slow my current writing beyond the previously promised mid-March deadline (the start of my school's Spring Break, in other words; i.e., today), I can proudly say that Dixie Curtain has cleared perhaps its last major hurdle(s), and should be in beta-ready form by no later than the end of this month--possibly sooner, since I'll be taking a slightly delayed Spring Break from prelim work the week of the 25th!
Lastly: Obsidian & Steel, Dillinger in Charleston, and For State & Country are on sale on Kindle as of 3/16, and through Sat. 3/23! If you're in need of a historical fiction or What-If fix, or know somebody who is, grab yourself a digital or print copy!
That's all for right now. Should anything pop up before April, I'll let you know here or on my FB and Twitter feeds; otherwise, just enjoy your holiday and break(s), and keep on reviewing and sharing!
