iTunes, Audiobook, Interview & 5 Quirky Things
Here in beautiful Colorado, we foolishly assumed spring had at last arrived on account of the 70+ degree temperatures last week. We were wrong, as evidenced by the snow currently coating the back yard. It's never boring in Colorado.
First, welcome to all the new subscribers who have signed up since finishing Starshine. It's great to have you here :).
New blog post, 5 Things I Learned Writing (and Publishing) Starshine. Give this one a read, I think it's worth your time.
The paperback is now available on the Barnes & Noble site, as well as all Amazon's international sites except Brazil, Mexico and Australia. It is available in Australia, however, at Angus & Robertson and other online retailers.
Audiobook production is well underway. If you're a fan of listening to books in the car, the train or at the gym, I think you'll enjoy it when it's released.
I'm interviewed on Maer Wilson's awesome blog today. Head over for some amusing tales about me, writing and more.
General good news announcement: Starshine has already sold well enough* to enable me to cut way back on paid editing and programming jobs (to essentially zero) and write full-time for the foreseeable future. I haven't made enough to buy a Ferrari or even take a vacation to the Caribbean - we're still utterly normal people with a house in suburbia and a leaking basement (don't ask) - but it does mean Aurora Rising gets my undivided attention. It is my hope this will result in even better novels, sooner, with more flair :).
* When added to my husband's hard-earned and well-deserved engineer salary, naturally.
