Coming back...with a giveaway!

I don't like to chat unless I have something to say, you know what I mean? And while I could tell you all sorts of things about my personal journey- oh, just go read Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and you'll get the gist- I don't like to waste your time and I know that if you're going to come here, you expect to read about publishing news (mine or otherwise), and I did not have that much to say about it right now.

Although I've had my latest drafted for almost two years (what?!), because this story is more "where I live" than the other things I've written, I knew that I might be too close to the subject matter to be objective and that I was going to need some help. In other words, I've been extra-special worried about getting this right.

Separately, I think it's also fair to say that many people in the indie publishing world have started burning out, and while I'm not one of them, this has indirectly affected me. Even the most dedicated and ambitious person can work multiple jobs and not sleep for so long before something has to give. And when the industry has pretty much promised a protracted downturn, those who could slog away for three or four years before burning out deserve our applause. It's an industry reality I've had to adjust to.

But it's all good...

I'm still here and while I've been biting my nails about the best way to bring this latest story to market, I haven't stopped writing. I'm confident that readers are going to love the additions to the New Pioneers universe- and the stories they have to tell- and I'm even more excited about the next installment (already written). I think readers are also going to be very satisfied with how this series will wrap up (or at least this part of it). Thanks to everyone who has patiently awaited it.

Alrighty then! While I don't have a publication date yet (but it will happen before March, 2016!), I'd like to use this time to invite more people into my characters' little universe so you'll be all caught up when the time comes, and what better way to do that than with a giveaway? That's right- in exchange for signing up for my newsletter, you'll be entered to win not only my books but also some others I've loved in the last few years. And what kind of giveaway would it be without some Amazon gift cards?

You'll have plenty of chances to win a prize, but if you don't, you know I always take care of my newsletter subscribers. So please sign up (and tell your friends).
