Release Dates Pushed Back
So my editor wrote to me last week to let me know that I’ve had some push back on release dates for next year’s line-up. Olivia–the first book in the Newport Ladies Book Club Series won’t be out until February instead of January, and Hazzardous Universe–The Magician’s Last Words won’t be out until March. Each got pushed a month. I think it’s cute that my editor for Olivia wrote with an almost apologetic tone as though she worried I’d be unhappy or something. I am not at all unhappy.
The push back was because they wanted to get the cover right and it’s taking longer. I am *so* okay with that. I would much rather wait a month and get a superb cover than be early and not really ready to be marketed. People say not to judge a book by its cover, but we all do, and I want my cover, and the rest of the covers in this series, to be right. And yesterday the girls I’m writing the Newport series with and I received a sneak peek into our covers and they are so dang ADORABLE! Worth the wait! I’m excited to unveil them to you. They are bright and shiny and as Heather Moore stated, they make you want to visit Newport and relax with a good book on the beach.
In the mean time, I am writing a new book! And it has been fun! I love starting something new. I mentioned elsewhere that beginning the writing on a new book was like that long luxurious stretch first thing in the morning. It just feels good.
I’m doing nanowrimo for the first time ever and it’s been a nice motivation. But I spent the last several days going over Galleys, so no new writing has been accomplished. Next week it’ll be back to work! Be on the look out Olivia’s cover will be posted as soon as I get greenlighted to share.
