I spent the weekend reviewing the final drafts of Draoithe: The Dark Gift. Book Seven has been long awaited, but we are waiting for Kindle to say we are live. It will be available both digitally from Kindle and in paperback from Amazon for those who still love the smell of ink on paper and the glue that binds the pages as part of the whole reading experience. I swear there is something to be said for dogeared pages in a well loved manuscript.
The house hunt continues, and I must return to the day job soon. Don't cry for me though, pray instead. I still hope to launch Book Eight by the end of September. I will try to keep on top of that. But over the next few days, all the original books will be newly branded so that the covers take on the format from the newly released Book Seven. For those of you who are still looking for the prequel, give me a minute longer, and don't be mad if it is a bit shorter than the books in the series. But we are shooting for that book to be released shortly as well.
I'm excited to say that we are very close to being able to offer multiple promotions throughout the year. I wish I could just be the storyteller all the time and never worry about the day to day aspect of life, but sadly, I must still buy my top ramen to survive. I have been where the budget said no new book, so I will try to ensure that at least one of the books is promoted for less each month soon.
Thanks to all my readers. If you have any questions or comments, drop me a line on any of the contact points and I will try to get back at you soon.
Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
