Want to get a look into the “legends” of Cirena?

That is, the time period before “The Wishing Blade” series and “Stone and String” series, back when the gods still had a large presence in Cirena, the Divide hadn’t yet risen, and Ruetravahn had not yet made a deal with Listhant-Nsasrar to give word magic power to the Cantingen language?

Then come join my new “Legends of Cirena – Collaborative Adventure” Facebook group!

Legends of Cirena - Collaborative Adventure Facebook Group

Originally, I planned to do this just for my newsletter subscribers. Then I realized that it would probably make the newsletter super long, and if I did a Facebook group, I’d be able to do it weekly instead of every other week, and I’d also be able to use the polling feature.

Plus, if you aren’t really into newsletters but use Facebook, this is the perfect way to get involved and get your input into a story!

This is a new, experimental process in which I’ll post a new story segment every Tuesday to the group. (This week, I’m starting with four polls that will decide the character for the first story).

At the end of the story segment will be 2-4 choices as to what the protagonist is going to do next.

Want to influence what happens?

Cast your vote before Friday at midnight! (This weekend it’s going to be Saturday at midnight, since the group is just getting started).

Then, based on the most popular response, I’ll write the next section of the story, post it on Tuesday, and the process repeats.

Once the story is complete (which may or may not be canon to The Wishing Blade universe), I’ll polish and publish it.

(Those of you in the group, of course, will get access to grab the polished version for free). 😀

Sound like fun?

Then click the link below, join the group, and make your choices!

I hope to see you there. 😀

Infinitas Publishing – Status Report

It’s time for another Infinitas Publishing status report! 🙂

* * *

Fractured Skies: (Book 2 of the Distant Horizon series). Feedback is in for Fractured Skies, and Isaac and I have proceeded through the read-aloud proofing stage. With that complete, I’m now ready to make a couple tiny adjustments, print out the manuscript and proceed to proofreading.

The blurb for Fractured Skies is also complete, so we’ll be announcing more details soon.

While we’re not 100% sure of the release date, we’re aiming for an October release!

In the meantime, we’ve just about finished the cover for book three of the Distant Horizon series, so stayed tuned for a reveal!

(Sign up for the Distant Horizon Universe Newsletter to get an early look at the next book cover!)

Lily’s Story: (Distant Horizon series spin-off novel) On hold while completing the main series’ projects.

The Multiverse Chronicles: On hold.

Little One: On hold.

Magebane: (Book Three of The Wishing Blade series) I’m still in the process of working on revisions, but I think Isaac and I have diagnosed a few possible issues with the current story (pacing and climax). This is going to take a bit longer to complete, as I need to shuffle a few scenes and add a couple plot points.

I’m not sure yet whether this is going to go through another round of beta-readers, but the current plan is to go through a read-aloud phase once the aforementioned issues have been resolved.

We’ve got a plan… but it’s going to take a little work to get this where we want it.

We also did a photoshoot for the main image of the book cover, and have a near-final draft of the cover.

The Wishing Blade – Book 4: (Title to be determined) On hold while I revise Magebane. 

Stone and String 3 (and assorted Wishing Blade short stories/novellas): On hold while completing Magebane and Fractured Skies.

However, I created a cover for the novella I mentioned last time, so that’s done, at least. Once I’ve made progress revising the novella, then I’ll reveal the cover. So that’s coming soonish.

(Want to be the first to see new covers in The Wishing Blade universe? Sign up for that newsletter here).

“MOG”: While I haven’t made any further progress on this particular universe, Isaac has read through the story I’ve managed to edit thus far, and he’s provided me with a loose plot outline for future books in this series.

Cyberpunk / Dystopian Snow White Story: On hold.

Game Design: On hold.

WCPL Book Sighing - August 2018Marketing: Continuing to work on newsletter swaps with other authors. Also, I’ve picked up a couple ebooks on copywriting with the intent to improve my blurbs and newsletters.

Isaac and I also did a book signing at the Webb City Public Library in Missouri. At least one person checked out one of our books from the library that was in circulation. Thank you! 🙂

SBibb’s Photographic Illustration: Finished a book cover proof and am preparing to do a typing/formatting project.

LitRPG / GameLit Story: I’ve received feedback from beta-readers and I have some notes from Isaac on the beginning of the story. Once Magebane and Fractured Skies are complete, I’ll start revisions. For now, it’s on hold. The tagline still eludes me.

* * *

That’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂
