THE WARRIOR Coming in Paperback December 15

THE WARRIOR paperback is a go. It will be available on Amazon on December 15, the same day as the Kindle version. Number of physically turnable pages: 536. The proof arrived yesterday and it’s beautiful. This might be my favorite book yet. I’ll have copies ready to sign and ship in the first week of January.

Formatting and final proofreading are now complete. How? I have no idea. It just kind of happened. All we’re waiting for now is my cover artist to finish up. Kindle pre-order info coming very soon!

THE WARRIOR Update – November 10

Editing is finished. Files have been sent off for formatting. I really have no idea how this is moving so quickly and easily. Bevan magic maybe? If it is, I hope it’s Sloane’s, not TB’s. Because I refuse to jump off any cliffs into any rivers.

THE WARRIOR Update – September 23

I sent THE WARRIOR off to my editor about an hour ago. Final revisions added about a thousand words to the count. I could seriously revise and perfect for the rest of my life but at some point I have to call it because I DON’T WANT TO REVISE AND PERFECT THIS THING FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. lol

It’s perfect timing, too, because Penned Con is in one week and I have a couple hundred of TB’s special dissolving cubes to wrap in brown paper and tie with string. Come see me there and you can help yourself to one. ;)

THE WARRIOR Update – July 26

The slaughter has begun. What’s on my mind as I finish up this book is how much is too much? Is there a line? A number, a body count? Something concrete that determines when a reader will start thinking the book’s hero/heroine is no longer so heroic?

Hopefully not. Because these last twenty thousand or so words are blood red. Please don’t hate me.

I’m writing as fast and hard as I can, I promise. And trying not to think about how much I’m going to miss these characters when this book is finished.

My guess is one and half more months until I type THE END.
