So, this post is largely a shout-out to all my lovely beta readers of Silver Rose. If you've sent me your feedback, (which many of you have), thank you sooo much! I really appreciate you volunteering to take on this project, and taking the time to go through it and edit & critique. Many thanks! ^_^
To those who haven't gotten back to me yet. The end of this month is the deadline. If you aren't able to make that, just let me know! You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If beta reading Silver Rose ended up being just too much for your schedule, just tell me, and I'll take you off the list! :) I would just like to know, so that I can began working on Silver Rose again as soon as I've heard back from everyone who's going to give me feedback anytime soon! :D Thanks!!
Also, author and readers alike, I have a question. So my goal is to make Silver Rose my next published book. And it's supposed to have a sequel (will probably end up being a trilogy); however, I just haven't had any luck after writing the first 40/50 pages of Diamond Dark. No inspiration. No love for this story.
Instead, I'm hugely inspired to work on this random dystopian story that I started some time ago. I'm a few chapters in, and have all sorts of ideas.
Would it be awful to publish a book, then instead of publishing it's sequel next, release a random stand-alone (or worse yet, random first book to a whole new trilogy)?? I'm just trying to think of the future here! :p Anyway, would love to hear your thoughts on that!
Bookish news here: I'm part of a launch team for Nadine Brandes's coming release, A Time to Speak. (I recently reviewed the first book in the series, A Time to Die, in case you missed that.) So I will be having some posts concerning that in the near future! Book review for A Time to Speak. Talking about why I recommend this dystopian series. Author interview with Nadine Brandes ... Fun stuff like that! So keep on the look-out! :D
Will also be helping with a cover reveal soon here. And spotlighting another book.
Writerly Stuff. A Dream Not Imagined now has 25 ratings on Goodreads!! And 15 on Amazon! Wahoo! :D It's doing fairly well, I feel. If you would like to help me vote it up on Goodreads, here's a link to the lists it's featured on so far:
And as always, I'm eager for more reviews! :) :)
What has the month of September looked like for you? What fantastic books have you read? ^_^
