A Few Updates

So, some quick updates on what's been happening around here. You may have noticed a lot of reviews coming in recently. To make finding titles/authors that I've reviewed a bit easier, I've started compiling this handy list to keep track of all the updates. You'll be able to access this from anywhere on the site by letting your mouse hover the menu bar where it says, oddly enough, "Reviews."

To this same end, and because I don't remember if I've mentioned it before, you can also find a list of authors who have guest blogged here, along with some of the larger blog series that I've written about. This is all under the "Features" page.

Prep work for the release of CONSUMPTION is just about finalized. It'll be going to my formatting guru next month, and then out to ARC readers once I get it back (you can still request your free copy for a little while longer yet). I'm looking at an October release, and once ordering info is finalized I'll make sure you all know about it! You may have seen it over on the main page, but if not, here's the final cover art:

CONSUMPTION COMPLETE

I'm still in the midst of first-round edits for EMERGENCE, the follow-up to CONVERGENCE. There's about a hundred pages or so left of that, and then it'll be off for content edits in about three weeks time. I really need to buckle down and take care of what I need to on my end, but the early-2015 release I've been eying should still be feasible.

And speaking of CONVERGENCE, if you're attending Penned Con 2014, be sure to get one of the thumbdrives being given out by Smashwords. My book will be included, along with lots of other great titles!
