Princess Smith Chapter One

Chapter OneCollapse )

Dec. 14th, 2009



Sales for PRINCESS SMITH have blown me away. Counting the pre-orders, we've sold SEVENTY PERCENT of our initial print run! I am indescribably overjoyed by this.

It is a gorgeous book, if I do say so myself. The cover turned out beautifully, and the page layouts are every bit as awesome.

... is now open for pre-ordering! Let me know if you're interested, and as soon as I have the copies, I will get you one! Signed by me, even!

Why I'm So Behind on Truthseekers

You may think that I'm really behind on Truthseekers, considering that a month and a half ago I was at 25,000 words and that's only a 15,000 word increase in six weeks. Well my friends, let me assure you that I haven't simply been sitting on my hands. Oh no! In addition to oodles of overtime at the day job, a website update that was months overdue, and all the other wacky hijinx life can throw at you, the main reason Truthseekers got a little back-burned is this:

Princess Smith and the Clockwork Knight is almost ready! Look for a book launch early December!

Sabledrake Enterprises and I are proud to announce that PRINCESS SMITH AND THE CLOCKWORK KNIGHT will be published this year, just in time for Christmas!

So Princess Smith got another rejection, this time from an agent. Such is the fate of authors. Harry Potter was rejected eight times before becoming a smash hit.

"How do you deal with it, the rejection?" Richard Smith-Jones
"Simple. We drink." - Geoffrey Tennant

Right. On to the next one.

So Princess Smith and the Clockwork Knight has gone out to an agent. Updates as events warrant.

Truthseekers 2 being at the editor leaves me with a curious void in my life. I'd grown accustomed to all-Ashley, all the time.

Once the show is over (tickets still available! get them while there's still good seats!) I'm going to be all-Ad-Astra, all the time - getting ready for the launch, signing pre-ordered copies of Truthseekers 2, printing out promotional stuff, PLUS the Ages of Wonder launch. Both are going to be the same day, Sunday March 29th.

And then... April. I think I will treat myself to writing that Action-Cityverse not-a-Squirrelman-sequel that's been kicking around in my head.
