BOUND is forthcoming!

My hearts, I have made the decision to self-publish my novella, BOUND. And I’ve just launched a description of it on its own blog page, here.

Please check it out. I am currently researching cover art, and once I have a designer locked in, I will start making an official timeline for the release.

Tell your friends! Stay tuned!

Decision 2014

All right. I’ve received the latest feedback from a publisher where I had submitted my Viking novella, Bad Dream Entertainment. Unfortunately, BDE passed on it, but they had some really encouraging feedback, which was to say that my characters appeared fleshed-out and relatable, the story was interesting and I had “a good thing going.”

That’s some pretty stellar feedback for two sample chapters, I would say. The editor encouraged me to continue shopping it around. I took a little while to find some other viable small presses, but couldn’t find one I liked.  The third I had on my initial list appears to be strictly horror, and I don’t think my novella would fit well there.

Full disclosure: As my novella began more as a side project, I had told myself I would shop it around for a bit, and then consider self publishing.

I’m going to take that leap of faith and attempt this self publishing thing.

Many, many thanks to Bad Dream Entertainment and World Weaver Press for taking the time out of their reading schedules to provide awesome feedback with their declines. I highly recommend both places if you’re looking for a home for your book–just be sure to read their submission guidelines carefully, as always. Five of five stars for both places, would submit again.

Be on the look-out for updates, new blog formatting, and possibly a dedicated page (or site) for my forthcoming book. Oh my God, I just said forthcoming book.
