My books are in print!
I just thought that I would update you on the status of my novels. Both Blood Rain and Blood Moon are print to order on Amazon! Hooray! I have to admit that it's a nice feeling to be physically holding them. Even though I'm not opposed to e-books, I like the feeling of a book in my hand. Also, seeing my novels in print is kind of surreal.
Many thanks again to J.M. Lee for his awesome cover art. We tried to pick the right type of cover to do the pictures justice. At first we went with matte finish, but we ended up choosing glossy because the colors are more pronounced. We also did some work on the margins and we think we're pretty satisfied now. Many thanks also to my husband, Joel, for handling the format changes.
Long story short, both books are available print to order if you would prefer a print copy over an e-book. The e-books have also been updated to include any important changes. (Mostly, I fixed the grammatical issues that my editors found, and I added a few days here and there to travel times. This doesn't change the story, but it makes the world a bit more realistic and it satisfies my perfectionist tendencies.)
I probably won't make my goal of finishing book three by March 22nd, but we'll have to see. Progress is slow, but I feel like the story is going pretty well. I'm going to take as much time as I need to make sure that the last book is as good as it can be. I'll keep you updated on the status of Blood God as I write it. Currently, we're at 35,000 words. Wish me luck.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Blood Rain and Blood Moon on e-book or in print, whichever you prefer. Thank you for your time and for reading my rambling. I hope you enjoy the novels!
