It’s 2013, now what? Less blogging and a monthly newsletter

Sometimes decisions are hard and sometimes you just need to wake up from a good nap and have an epiphany. That’s what happened to me today.

After what feels like forever, I’ve finally decided that I’m going to throw myself into producing books and put this blogging thing on the shelf. So from here out, I’ll be using this web site as just that: a web site.

I’ll be keeping my promise to the other indies I have scheduled to do book reviews, and if you have a book you’d like to have me review, then by all means check out my Request a Review page, but those reviews won’t be coming on any regular schedule. If you’re an author, I’m sure you can understand my reasoning behind cutting back.

Occasionally I’ll post updates or news or other interesting things, so don’t despair. 🙂 It’s just not going to be every other day or even every week.

For everything else, like my fan page or follow me on twitter.

Here’s the great news for you, the fan/reader:

I have so many exciting things going on now that I can’t wait to tell you all about it, but there is a catch. You’ll need to sign up for my monthly newsletter if you want access to all the sneak peeks and juicy special prices for new releases.

To that end, let me start this first month of 2013 with an update of some of the exciting things you can look forward to if you sign up for the newsletter:

  1. I’ve contracted with someone through ACX to produce Apprentice Cat as an audio book. I’ll announce when it will be available in the newsletter first.
  2. The cover for Journeyman Cat is finished. I’ll be releasing a sneak peek later this year.
  3. I’m working on a novella set in the Apprentice Cat world called The Malkin, featuring a character from the first book. Subscribers will be the first to know when the ebook is available and receive a special subscriber price.
  4. I’ll be releasing sneak peeks at first chapters and other goodies, including special reduced prices from time to time, but only to anyone who signs up to the newsletter.

Get in on the great deals now by entering your email address in the “Subscribe to my monthly newsletter” in the column to the right. Remember to click the subscribe button, too. 🙂

Can’t wait to let you in on the excitement!

      Thanks, Patricia. It was a difficult decision to come to, but in the end I think it will be the right one. 🙂

  2. […] by the time I got around to doing this post (which is among the last regular posts, so sign up for my newsletter for sneak peeks and awesome specials), I wasn’t able to tag five other writers. They’d […]
