Life is super busy for me right now, but I’m still plugging away on Rune Legacy, the final book in the Runebound trilogy. I’m almost halfway done with the first draft, and I hope to have the book ready to publish by the end of January. A full-time job and a growing infant mean my schedule is subject to change, but I’m committed to publishing this book as soon as possible!
Another update I’m excited to share is that I signed a publishing contract for the audio versions of the Runebound books this week. Podium Publishing is going to produce and distribute audio versions of Rune Empire, Rune Destiny, and Rune Legacy (when it’s complete). I could not be more happy to be working with them!
Anyway, I just wanted to post an update for the two people that might check this blog and wonder if I’m still alive.
I’m still alive, and I’m still writing!
I published Rune Destiny today! At 118k words, it is significantly longer than Rune Empire. From start to finish, it took me a little under five months to complete. If you had told me a year ago that at this point I would have two books published, I would have said you were crazy.
Anyway, I hope you like it! A hard-copy version should follow sometime later this week.
I wrote the final word on the first draft of the sequel to Rune Empire this afternoon!
The first draft of Rune Destiny clocked in at 116K words, which is 20k more than Rune Empire.
Now the editing and re-writing phase begins. Hopefully the book will be ready to publish by the end of August!
This is one of my lifelong dreams, finally realized. It’s pretty awesome to hold a hard copy of my book in my own hands.
I paid for the cover and map (thanks for the awesome art, Ricky!), but I did the rest of the formatting myself.
I think the print version of the book looks great!
I’d read it.
I published Rune Empire today!
This is the first book I’ve ever written. I started writing this same time last year. I got most of my writing done during my lunch breaks at work. It was a grueling process. Lots of re-writes and changes. But I’m happy with the finished product.
Now that the first book is done, I aim to finish the second in less than half the time!
Rune Empire is 95k words complete.
I’ve written 55k words for the sequel, Rune Destiny, in less than three months.
And I don’t plan on slowing down!
You found my humble corner of the internet. Most likely you were directed here by my book, Rune Empire. But if not, and you’re a weary internet wanderer, stay awhile and listen!
My debut novel, Rune Empire should be published within the next week. This is the first book I’ve ever written, but definitely not the last! It is book one in a three book trilogy. Rune Destiny, the second book, is already more than half-way complete, and I hope to publish it within three or four months.
