I should have posted this before, but workload got in the proceedings. As of a few weeks, my novel, Tempest Blades has a home! *Cue celebrations and embarrassing dance moves*
Artemesia Publishing has agreed to publish the book under their Shadow Dragon Press imprint. They loved it, which is always a good sign. Now, the book won’t be out. As with anything related to the publishing industry, it will take time to get to the dead tree/dead e-reader I mean print and ebook final evolution. Edits have to be done, cover has to be designed and all of the marketing ideas have to be, well, planned. That takes time. When I talked about the timeline with the fine folks from Artemesia, we agreed that the reasonable launch date will be around the summer of 2019, this with the idea of ensuring a quality product. As long as it is published before my birthday that year, I’m happy.
The bright side of the somewhat long wait is that it gives me time to annoy you with pleads to buy the book as well as start writing the sequel. Because oh yes, there will be a sequel and hopefully a threequel and a quadroquel or whatever is said, with more electric boogalooness. Writing the sequel was not exactly in the cards and it takes me time to get a decent draft, between six months and a year, given my peculiar plotting & writing system. But that means that you will have time to wait for the book and re-read it. The Final Countdown begins.
So please keep an eye in this space for more news on Tempest Blades and thanks again to the people of Artemesia for this opportunity.
