Coming Soon! Demon Isle Witches Preview of Volume 5, Firebrand Feyks.

Hi all!  

In a day or so, I'm going to have a short preview of Volume 5 in Witches of The Demon Isle!

This volume is entitled 
Firebrand Feyks.

It's nearly completed, with sections of volumes 6-7 done as well. 


SORRY! I know it is taking longer than I expected... but I guess somehow it always does! It seems that planning a move across the country, which commences in a few weeks (AHHHHH! Freaking me out just a little), is proving much harder than I'd thought. Especially to find a few hours straight, without interruption, to write. But they are coming along and HUGE progress is definitely being made. 

If I can get Volume 5 finished to my liking in the next few days, I will still have time to get it to my editor and back, and published, before the move starts. I had wanted to publish 6-7, within a few days after. Instead, it may be a few weeks. My editor and I will need a bit of time and will have a learning curve, as we figure out how to best work together from a distance. Something I had not really thought about until these last couple weeks.

ANYWAY- If you want to get the FREE Preview, be sure to sign up for Book Release & News Alerts! I'll be sending out the preview sometime in the next 48 hours!

A quick HOWDY, Demon Isle Drafts Completed, Updates...

Hi all! Just a quick hop in, update and hello! My life right now pretty much consists of:

Writing. Packing. Writing. Packing. 

Sorry I haven't really had any extra time for being online. Writing and planning a move across the U.S. is proving most time consuming. I hope your spring is going well. The snow continues to fall in Maine.... not cooperating in the least with my moving plans!

Demon Isle Update: Drafts COMPLETED! Still editing and so much other little stuff to do. But coming along very nicely.

Fated Saga... still planning on Spring release :)

That's all for now folks!
If you're in the snow zone, here's to hoping it finally stops falling and starts melting!

Have a great one!

Fated Saga/ Demon Isle Updates- Letter to Fans!



Open letter to all my fans...

I’m taking a break....

I know this is not what any of you want to hear! And I’m sorry...

But the truth of the matter is, I haven’t taken a real break in over 7 years and it’s taking a toll.

The honest truth is that being a self-published author is basically like running your own business. You don’t get to just write... you have to do everything else that comes with publishing a book and owning a business. I won’t bore you with details but more or less, a person can only put in so many 13, 16 or 18 hour days, six to seven days a week, year after year, before they just crash.

Unfortunately, this is where I find myself. I’ve been fighting it for months now, but I’ve lost the battle. And I have not given myself permission to take a break in far too many years. And in order to keep writing the way I want to, I need to give myself permission to do so...  

Yes, this means some delays and I’m truly sorry for that. I was sincerely hoping once I was able to be a full time writer, which just happened in December, that I’d be able to whip out the books left and right... and I know this will happen. But not this week. Or next week. Not without a little downtime first.

Anyone that has worked at the same job for a long time, has run their own business, or works in the art/music/writing business... I’m sure you can relate. And it’s time for me to admit and accept that I’m only a superhero in my mind :)

I’m planning on taking a few weeks off. I may well pop in and say hello... but I’m putting away my pen and paper for just a little bit, to give myself some time to recuperate. It will be worth it in the long run... I promise :)

I just want to thank each and every one of you for being a fan. I will be back soon! The books will be better for it and I want to give you all the books you deserve to read! And the books I very much want to write...

The delays won’t be too long. Just a few weeks. Please hang in there with me :) This last year has been one of change and transition. I’m looking at this as part of the final piece of the transition...

I’ll be in touch soon.

Rachel

*** Demon Isle Witches Volume 5 Update ***

Just a quick update on Volume 5 in The Demon Isle Witches. It's coming along nicely and I expect to have it finished very soon... then, it just depends on how long the editing and readying for publication take...

I don't know if it will be available before the end of Jan, but definitely not too far into Feb.

Thanks all!
