The Power of the Reader

I came here to post good news: my book is with the proofreader and half-way through editing!  Yayayayayayay! Things are looking good for a September publication.  I also have my book cover.  Which I'm happy to share with you all.  Here you go!

I won't give any hints on what happens in this book, but as you might guess from the cover image... Luka figures rather strongly into the storyline.

As I said, I came to tell good news, but along the way I got sidetracked.  I found some long-lost comments that got sidelined for moderation and decided to "get rid of the spam" as it were.  Except, they weren't spam!  They were lovely comments from my readers, telling me how much my stories have meant to them.  They brought tears to my eyes and made me remember again why I keep doing this.

Because, honestly, I do ask myself sometimes (mostly when I'm doing line edits. yick).  Why do I keep doing this? It's hard.  It's long and complicated.  It's time consuming.  And it's just a story, right?

But you all have reminded me, time and again, with emails, with comments, with goodreads messages, that my silly little stories mean something to you.  That you want to know what happens next.  That you still wait for the next edition.

Which makes me excited that I'll be able to share it with you soon! Happy Reading!

I just finished rereading the first two books in this series and have been searching the internet this morning trying to find out what ever happened to Terris! I am so excited that I found this post and found out that it's almost done! Thank you so much for this series. It's awesome. I can't wait to find out what happens next!

This is best news ever!! I finished the first two books of the Compis series in March 2015 and loved it! The story and the writing continued to get better as I progressed through the books and before I knew it, I was obsessed. I was so upset when I read your last update that said you might not continue the series for a long time, but now I am so ecstatic! Thank you so much for pressing onward, your fans definitely appreciate it!

Are you planning to have an audible version of Terris? I'm excited to read it - and am reading / listening to the first two books right now!
