Looking Back on November

Looking Back on November at KellyApple.com

Okay, people. I have THANGS to share.

First off, the next installment of Heart of Stone has been paused so I can put together a cover overhaul. To make a long story short, while I realized the original covers were very similar in appearance (which is not a bad thing because I want the covers to have a cohesive look so a person could tell the books were from a related series), they’re so similar even I’M having trouble telling them apart.

So. New covers for the 3 parts of the story already out and new covers going forward.

Which means I need to put together covers (I have an idea of what I want, I just have to find the time to sit down and CREATE!) before part 4 comes out.

While I have every intention of getting this done in December, it honestly depends on how crazy things get with the holidays and family. And my day job. Because, yes, I have a day job that is currently hitting me up with ALL THE DEADLINES.

So that’s the bad(-ish) news.

On the positive side, I NaNo-ed my way through November and absolutely didn’t write on any of the things I thought I was going to write on. (For the record, November was supposed to be dedicated to writing Wild at Heart, the book after Heart of Stone. I’m about a quarter of the way done with it at this point, so that’s my other focus in December and going into January.)

There you have it. Some writing, some (future) creating, and some…deadlines?

Yeah.

Looking Back on October

Looking Back on October

Oh, hey. Another month has come and gone. HOW WEIRD. Honestly, October really was a weird month. I took on two big projects at my day job and have been running in deadline mode for the past few weeks. Which is a BIG part of why Rock and Road didn’t go live when I had […]

Looking Back On August

Another month gone by and YESSSSS Heart of Stone is done! Definitely done. Part one is edited. The cover has been completed. Now I just need to format and upload and you’ll have Vane and Cin’s story in all it’s wildly sexy glory! (and since I’m writing this on Sunday, if I manage to find […]

Looking Back on July

July was a Camp NaNo month and it turned out to be a goooooood writing month, guys. SO GOOD. In a nutshell, I’m well into writing the final part of Heart of Stone and I’m digging the twists and turns Vane and Cin are taking on their road tripping journey to reconnect with Vane’s family. […]

And in Other News…

Heyyyy there! So, I’m deep in the writing cave (so deep!) and I’m alllllllmost done with Heart of Stone. Which means good things for the future. Namely, that part 1 will likely be ready for an August release. You know, provided I get a cover made for it. Anywho. I’m going radio silent for the […]

Looking Back on June

OH LOOK! Another month has gone by. HOW UNEXPECTED. Ha. Right. So anyway. June has flown and I got THINGS DONE. For real. The first book in the Monstrous World series is well under way (I’m nearly at the halfway point as of the writing of this post) and that’s FANTASTIC. Vane and Cin are […]

Looking Back on May

(My friend thinks it’s funny that I always start these posts with an OMG! WHERE DID THE MONTH GO? and I don’t want to disappoint so…) HOLY WHAT? WHERE DID MAY GO, PEOPLE? Seriously. These months are flying by and I’m side-eyeing them hard because I don’t always get the things done I think I’m […]

And In Other News … Pricing

And In Other News … Pricing

I was having a thought the other day. Weird, huh? Anyway. I was thinking about how I price books and how–IN MY HEAD–it all makes sense, but maybe I should explain things instead of just assuming everybody can read my mind. So. Pricing. The BEST time to buy a book is when it’s freshly released. […]
