What has Morgan le Fay been up to all these years?

Find out on September 1st.  The pre-orders are now up on Kindle, Google Play, Nook, Apple, and most other major retailers.

I sent out the ARC copies to the great folks subscribed to my newsletter who volunteered to read and review, and I'm getting pretty excited for the launch of this book.  Some feedback has already come back that's helping me pick and choose areas to focus on in the second book, which is coming along nicely, so I'm getting very excited for the series as well.

With the arrival of my new baby, I noticed today that my vegetable garden is in a terrible state.  It's been overrun with weeds.  I may have to take some time to reclaim things from the wilderness.  Not for a few more days, because my older child is sick with a virus this week (poor guy!).

I'm already contemplating the outline for the next Waldgrave book, which is the next project on my list.  I also accidentally read a very brief snippet of a lovely review that someone left on the seventh book in the Redemption series today; I don't make a habit of reading my reviews, because it doesn't play nice with my perfectionism and that way lies insanity.  I caught the first sentence of this one while trying to fix something on the sales page, however, and it was very motivating and encouraging to hear that someone enjoyed the series so much and wanted more books.

Thank you, kind stranger.  Your words made me smile.  Someday, when I'm dusting off the outline for the next book, it's fans like you I'll be thinking about.

Happy Reading,
Al

Ebook Sale & Update on Morgan Book 1

The manuscript for Morgan in the Mirror, Nine Morgans Book 1 is now out to my new list of beta readers.  I am so incredibly happy with my team for this novel, which includes several new members who had subscribed to my email list after reading another of my books.  Special thanks to everyone who volunteered!

I am currently writing the next installment in this new series, and it's coming along a little slower than usual due to the arrival of my new baby.  I did work a little maternity leave into my schedule, though, so I should be able to catch up and make my deadline.

Happy Reading,
Al

Also, Roz Marshall has orchestrated another listing for free and $0.99 ebooks, so be sure to swing through--your next favorite could be in here!

Morgan in the Mirror

I finished my initial edits for the first book in my Nine Morgans series.  The latter half still needs to go through additional editing, but for the most part, the book is done.

I'll be putting together my outline for book 2 in that series today.  I'm optimistic that I'll get that one at least mostly written before my second child is born (due mid-July), but I've had some symptoms that make me think baby may be arriving sooner than later.  We'll have to wait see.  Coupled with my toddler being sick the last few days, I'm running a little behind on my schedule, but I'll feel much better once I get this outline done--that way I already have my road map if I end up taking a short maternity break.

Anyone subscribed to my newsletter will be getting some sneak peak chapters and a cover reveal of the new series today, so enjoy!

Happy Reading,
Al

P.S. Roz Marshall organized an Urban Fantasy June Sale!  Check out the books below.

Wishing everyone luck at July Camp NaNoWriMo!

I'm going to try to participate this year.  I usually do.  However, I'll be setting my word count goal a lot lower than normal.

I'm pregnant, and my due date is mid-July.  :)

My toddler is thrilled that he's getting a new baby to play with (as are the rest of us), and I've been writing like mad the last several months to keep up my writing production schedule so that I don't miss a deadline if I end up taking some maternity leave.  This may explain for some of you why I suddenly started writing novellas instead of novels, as is my usual habit.  I've been busy cleaning out a spare bedroom, and in recent weeks, helping my husband to convert it to a baby room for the new arrival.

But the baby room is almost done, and the baby is almost here, and I am almost done writing the first book in a new series that I will publish this fall.  Anyone signed up for my email list will get a sneak peek of that cover in the Zombies & Zinnia release email that will go out on July 5th, as well as an invitation to beta read for the new series.

Happy Reading (& Happy Writing, to all of my friends doing Camp NaNoWriMo),
Al

More Witches on the way

...and maybe a Fay?  The latest series I'm sketching out is going to feature Morgan le Fay.  I've got the outlines complete, and I spent last night drafting covers for a 5 novel series arc.  Stay tuned for more on this one, because I'm a stone's throw from finishing the first book, and I intend to launch the series this fall!

I'll be putting the finishing touches on the 6th installment in the Hawthorn Witches series today, and it is set for a July 5th release.

A new Facebook page is up, so go ahead and give it a "like" if you want to keep up with my new releases on social media: https://www.facebook.com/addisynltyler/.  The page is still in progress, so forgive any mess until I get things put together and put up some posts.  Alternatively, you can always hop onto my mailing list if you want to get updates in your inbox.

I'm also participating in a free book promo this weekend, so be sure to swing through the lists to pick up some free books!  It's not just exclusive to Amazon this time around, so Apple, Nook, Kobo, and Google Play readers can get free books too.  :)

 Link to free books!

Happy Reading,
Al

Fried my laptop

Last night I made the classic bad decision to drink something without a lid near my laptop.  I spilled it, some got on the laptop, and now my laptop is dead.  I'm holding out with my last laptop, which has a dead battery, suspected RAM issues, missing the F5 key, and overheats easily.  I feel like a total moron.

This should not affect any planned releases through July, but stand by for further disasters.  :P

So I guess this means I'm in the market for a new writing laptop.  All suggestions welcome.
