The King: An Update

I’ve noticed a few searches for The King’s release date, along with the occasional person asking when the follow-up to The Fool will be published. As always, I’ve got a countdown to my next release on the sidebar, and right now The King is next on the docket!

At the moment the manuscript is going through content editing, along with getting beta feedback from about 6 people. The due date for feedback is the first week of September, then I’ll need to implement the changes I think are necessary. After, it’ll need to go to a proofreader, then be revised a few more times.

My initial release date was October 31st. Now it’s November 20th. Depending on how much feedback I get and how many things I think I need to work on, I might push it to December 6th. If I was in perfect health, or even mildly good health, getting it out early would have been no problem. As it is, I’m still dealing with post-concussion syndrome on the daily. Headaches. Dizziness. All that fun stuff. It absolutely puts a dampener on how much work I can get done in a day.

ARCs will most likely go out once I’ve implemented my proofreader’s changes — because at that point it’s just me fiddling around with word choice and whatnot. I will make plenty of announcements for ARC sign-ups, and I’ll also be doing a blog tour for the release. Because I’ll be booking a bit late, I might have to reschedule the release because my usual tour organizer doesn’t have the date I want available. When will I ever learn to plan in advance?

Anyway. Just know it will be out before the end of the year. I’d love to get things moving faster, but I’m a one-woman show here with a brain who sometimes works with me, most times doesn’t.

Synopsis

Three centuries ago, Molly Darling’s ancestors signed a contract in blood—daemon blood—to protect themselves from harm. On the eve she turns nineteen, Molly leaves for her birthday party against her parent’s wishes, sick of their warnings about her “betrothal to a demon.”

Except that she’s very much betrothed, and he’s very much a demon—one who’s only agreed to the nuptials to steal Molly’s ancient daemon powers. Brash, arrogant, and built like a Greek god, Tensley Knight keeps showing up to save Molly from otherworldly attacks, only to insult her a moment later.

As Molly learns more about the demon world, she realizes two things: that her family’s safety depends on a successful marriage, while any chance of freedom she’ll ever have calls for Tensley’s demise.

Yet sometimes Molly spots a tortured soul beyond those liquid grey eyes, and there’s no denying the way her skin tingles when Tensley touches it. In Vein of Love, safety requires sacrifice, foe becomes lover, and one must decide whether to kiss…or to kill.

Excerpt

Her fingers caught his tie, and he froze, startled by her brave actions as she tightened the fabric around his neck. “If anything happened to her, I don’t know what I would do.”

So you wanna play “who’s in charge”, sweetheart?

His lips quirked, and he touched both her hands. “Is that a threat, Ms. Darling?” He’d show her who was in charge; he’d throw her on the bed and devour her—pleasurably, of course. His fingertips skimmed the hollow of her wrist. “Because I expect people who make threats to follow through.”

Her hands retreated. “Do I look like a threat?”

He half-smiled. She had no idea how much of a threat she actually was to him. How, if he let her in, she could control him, just like that human seductress had controlled his brother.

Brief Hiatus: July 27th – August 3rd

Hi beauties!

The next five days or so are a little chaotic for me. I’m moving to a new city, and packing and stressing and all that jazz is really hard on my concussed brain. So I’ve opted to disconnect tonight rather than forcing myself to keep up with social media while all this chaos is going on around me.

I’ll do a bit of tentative scheduling, but honestly being on the computer when I’m like this has been a bit tough. Lots of dizziness and insane headaches. Last night I went to bed with a horrible headache and woke up with the same headache hours later… It’s just not an ideal situation for my brain at the moment.

Plus we won’t have internet at our place until midway through next week. I will of course be checking my social media accounts until Sunday, so if you need to reach me, I’m still pretty accessible… Just trying to help my brain out. I still have about 500-1K of freelance work before we get into serious packing, sooooo… Guh.

Me to my brain.

A quick King update: a revised draft of The King has gone off to my editor! I’m aiming for a November 20th release, with ARCs going out in October. Keep your eyes peeled for updates. I’ll definitely be doing a blog tour and giving out plenty of free copies of The Fool leading up to the release.

SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE, CUTIES!
