Progress Report 12/28

 The challenge with the final books in each of the 3 mini-series (Rise of the Unseelie, Touched, and Champion of the Sidhe) is that the stories are so interconnected at this point, and yet each has a unique story and a unique perspective. Getting the balance just right requires working on all three at once. It's been quite a juggling act, I can tell you!

In the story review with Ravynheart, a couple key scenes in Captivated had to get completely cut, and London's book required an entirely new approach. Which then rippled across to the other two books, Uprising and Keeper of Secrets. I think the new approach and the changes will make the story much stronger, and fans of London will like the new story twists and London's approach to them. (I hope!) More than anything, I do not want to release something that is less than the very best that we can make it.

At the moment, Uprising should be in its final form and ready for the editors when the time comes. Keeper of Secrets is very close to being done, and should hopefully go quickly once London's re-write is done. The holidays slowed done the work, but hopefully we'll be back on track now. I'm excited to get these new scenes written and edited, so I am hoping it will go fast!

The Fey Apocalypse

 We've so far survived the end of the world! 12-21-2012 hasn't been the total bust that it was predicted to be, although my Coke did explode all over me this morning, so maybe that's what the Mayans foresaw? Otherwise, there was no zombie apocalypse or demon asteroid pummeling the planet.

The Sidhe weren't so lucky, though! Not long ago they suffered an apocalypse of their own, bringing their realm crumbling down around them. You can read the first 3 stories of The Sidhe for free and see what happens to the fey in the wake of the Collapse of the Mounds.

Be sure to share this with your friends 
who like awesome Urban Fantasy!

Unseelie Party Song

 The earthborns of the Glamour Club know how to party hard. A dance song like One Direction's "Live While We're Young" is one they could really go wild with.

Progress Report 12/3

 So both Captivated and Keeper of Secrets are with Ravynheart for the final check and his edits. They are fairly close to their final form, I think. They will have to go through the editor and beta readers before they are ready to release, but hopefully that will be very soon.

Which leaves me with Uprising, the final book in the Rise of the Unseelie series. It is fairly close to completed. I have one major scene I need to write. Also, I need to do all the edits now that I can see the full picture. When I write, I work on the scenes that come to me, and that rarely happens in the correct order. Now that I have all the scenes pretty much written, I have been able to rearrange them and check for any holes in the story. It looks pretty good right now, though! I would think that I should have Uprising ready to pass off to Ravynheart by the end of the week, if not sooner!

The end of the Rise of the Unseelie, Champion of the Sidhe, and Touched mini-series does NOT mean the end of The Sidhe series! While many story threads are tied up, there are new ones that show up in the final books, and cliffhangers leading into 'Season Two.'

What's coming up in 2013? More action. More of the characters you've come to love, especially the Unseelie. We've got a new mini-series in the works that features new characters and that will be setting up 'Season Three.' Oh yeah... There are plans. Big plans. Stay tuned... You don't want to miss a thing!
