February Already!

Hi internet friends!

Wow February already. Where is 2016 going?

I’ve had a pretty good year so far and I hope you have as well. I’ve been writing solidly for Blessed Cursed and am on track to finish the first draft in the next few weeks. Then it’ll be onto the ‘fun’ part of editing. Once that’s been completed, I would like to find a few people who would be willing to be my Beta Readers. All you have to do is read the manuscript and tell me your honest thoughts about it. Let me know if you would be interested in helping me 🙂

Since my last update I’ve finished reading Tamora Pierce’s Song of the Lioness and Immortals series. Both fantastic. I can’t speak any higher of them. I’ve also read Game of Throne. I did enjoy this although I did feel nothing was resolved. I understand it’s a complicated series and I intend to keep reading but I couldn’t help but feel a little let down when the book simply ended. I’m currently reading Dragon Flight by Anne McCaffrey. This is another book which I first read years ago when I was a teenager. What can I say except I love dragons and the Dragons of Pern series captures them beautifully. I’m very much looking forward to re-reading this series which is currently taking up almost an entire row on my book shelf. Are you guys reading any good books at the moment?

I do have some sad news as well. As of Jan 2016, my publisher for the last three years closed its doors. Unfortunately this means that Birth By Fire’s Embrace and the rest of the Amethyst series will be out of print while I look for a new publisher to take it up. I’ll keep you updated on how I’m going but it’s a long process. If you would like a paperback copy of Birth By Fire’s Embrace, there are a few online shop such as Amazon which still have a few copies in stock. I myself also have some which I sell for $10 plus postage. I’ve had a lot of people asking me when Standing In The Wind’s Shadow will be released. Unfortunately I simply don’t know how long it will take to find a new publisher.

But no sense dwelling on the unchangeable. There are words to be written and worlds to build.

Till next time,

Ashleigh

Update

Hi Everyone and Happy belated New Year!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve just been so busy. My wedding is coming up in a few months and I’m flat out trying to get everything organised. Who’d have thought so much effort goes into one day.

I’d like to thank all those who bought a copy of my book over the last few months. You guys are awesome. I’m also trying to get more reviews on Amazon.com. If you’d like to help me out with this, message me via the contact page. I’ll send you a free copy as long as you promise to put a honest review on Amazon.com when you are finished reading it. That’s a pretty good deal I think 🙂

I’m going to be running some more competitions this year so keep a keen eye out and the winner might just be you!

Update

Good Morning Peoples of the Internet,

I hope you are all well. I haven’t been around much lately and for that I apologise. Life is very busy. Mostly I’m trying to plan a wedding. Who would have thought there would be so much effort for one day!!

As for my writing, I’m getting a lot of progress done on editing the third instalment of the Amethyst series. If you ask really nicely, I just may post up an extract. Standing In The Wind’s Shadow is still in the publication process (long process) and hopefully will be available to you kind people in a few weeks. I’ll let you know once I receive word of its release date. To get ready for its release, I suggest you go out and have a read of Birth By Fire’s Embrace which is book one of the Amethyst series. It’s only $6 for the electronic version from Amazon. Also available in Paperback and on Ibooks.

I’ve also started to think about what I’m going to write after I finished editing book 3. Very tricky. I have a lot of ideas for novels. But I’ve been working on my Amethyst series so long it’s very hard to step away. The series isn’t finished after book 3 but I feel I need to write a different book in between books 3 and 4 to help evolve my writing style and keep my storytelling fresh. I still have a lot of editing to do so at least I have a while to think about it.

Anyway that’s my life for the last few weeks. Isn’t it epic!

Till next time,

Ashleigh
