Happy Birthday to my Amazing Assistant, Carien. I can’t begin to tell you all how much she does for me. She keeps me sane and all the balls in the air. Plus she is beloved of cats. Check out her blog here.
At long last, a blog post from me! I’ve been podcasting pretty regularly – and posting those links here – but I’d hesitated to put too much content on my website because I knew I’d be changing website hosts. I know I told you all I hoped to unveil a new website in early October. Though I paid for it back in September, my previous website designer and host didn’t get it done. And didn’t get it done. And then, when it was theoretically done, half the stuff I’d asked for was missing and the stuff that did make it in had broken links and fatal errors.
But I’m very excited to be with a new host now and they are fantastic! So professional and responsive. They’ll be designing that new site for me and I believe they’ll actually do it! So stay tuned for that unveiling.
For those not listening to the podcast, Sorcerous Moons #5 is DONE! ORIA’S ENCHANTMENT is with my copy editor now and I expect to release it before the end of January 2019. As soon as I have a more specific date to give you, I’ll do the cover reveal. As always, the best way to be notified of the book release is by signing up for my newsletter.
I’m working on Sorcerous Moons #6 now – LONEN’S REIGN – and hope to have it out in late February or early March 2019.
One more thing I’m noodling… I was thinking this morning how much I miss book twitter, back in the before times when Twitter wasn’t all politics. I use lists, but that means my feed gets so curated I miss the conversations about random stuff. So I’m considering making a list – like “Jeffe’s Book Twitter” – and people could ask to be added to the list. If those people had book tweets to share, they could use the hashtag #jkbooktwitter or some such. To follow it, we’d have to follow the list and filter for that hashtag, but I think it could work. There would be rules like book promo once a day, no trashing any books or authors, no publicists, though agents and assistants would be welcome. Otherwise, we’d just talk about books! What do you all think?
