MASQUERADE (CREEPY HOLLOW, #4) Waltzes Into Kindle Stores

After tripping over a few feet, MASQUERADE has finally found itself dancing amongst the other ebooks on Amazon and Smashwords! If you've been looking forward to reading this one after the cliffhanger TRAITOR left you on, then I do hope you enjoy :-)







Taking A Break

At the end of GUARDIAN, LABYRINTH and TRAITOR, I included a "look out for the next installment" page, along with the cover of the next story. I haven't done that this time. Why? Because I don't know when the next one will be ready! This year has been really busy so far with teaching and writing and publishing, and now I have to plan a wedding (yes, engaged 3 months ago, getting married in 4,5 months time, and we've done pretty much NO planning yet!). So I'm taking a bit of a writing break. Well, I'll still be writing, but without fixed (self-imposed) deadlines hanging over my head. I've already got parts of the next few installments written, but I don't know exactly when they'll be finished for everyone else to read.
I look forward to being less stressed out and interacting with all you guys online more :-)

Counting Words

If you're interested, here are the word counts for the first four stories already out. MASQUERADE took me a few more words than expected ;-)

GUARDIAN:   13,700 words

LABYRINTH:   18,000 words

TRAITOR:   15,200 words

MASQUERADE:   24,700 words

A Thank You

And thank you to everyone who downloaded and spread the word on Wednesday when GUARDIAN and LABYRINTH were free. It was a great way to end off my time with KDP Select :-)

Congratulations on both launching MASQUERADE out into the world and on your upcoming wedding! :) That's very exciting!

MASQUERADE is my absolute favorite of the bunch so far. You did a fantastic job, and I'm of course looking forward to the next novelette. Whenever that may be, it'll be worth the wait.

Enjoy your time off! :)

Totally understand you taking a break. Stress is a horrible thing and it's always amazing getting out from under its hold. Myself though? Right now I need to put a little more stress on the writing.

Hope your wedding is splendid. :)
