Well, next week is going to be exciting for me, and for several of my colleagues at Evolved Publishing. Let’s start with the BIG DAY.
December 20, 2011
Oh yeah! My novel, Forgive Me, Alex, will be available as an eBook (sorry, but print version won’t be available for a couple months). I’ve been delaying this to focus on other Evolved Publishing business these past few months, but I’m pleased to finally—Finally!—release this book. The good news about the delay is that I’ve done some additional polishing, aided by the keen eye and strange mind of D.T. Conklin, and the story is stronger and more compelling than ever. I think you’ll agree. (I’m keeping my fingers crossed.)
Also available on the 20th will be a book I had the pleasure of editing, Kimberly Kinrade’s lower-grade chapter book, Lexie World. This is the first installment in Kimberly’s The Three Lost Kids Trilogy. The book includes several great full color pictures from our artist fantastique, Josh Evans. The two of them have combined to create a series that will not only charm and thrill kids, but provide important lessons, as well.
A third book from Evolved Publishing will hit the eShelves that day—Evolution: Vol. 1. This is a collection of short stories resulting from our first Short Story Contest. It includes 7 terrific stories from 7 excellent authors who participated in the contest. It also includes 3 short stories from the EP stable—me, D.T. Conklin and Ruby Standing Deer. This anthology results from the first of our semi-annual Short Story Contests. Our next one opens up for submissions in mid-February, and we’ll release Evolution: Vol. 2 in June 2012.
Christmas and New Year’s Day
By Christmas day, we’ll be releasing Circles, by Ruby Standing Deer. Once again, it has been my pleasure to edit this piece. Ruby’s historical fiction novel, set some 500 years ago, features a Native American tribe enjoying the pleasures of a simple life, yet struggling to survive upheaval. This charming cast of characters will capture your heart, with their extraordinary family bonds and easy sense of humor.
Some time between Christmas and New Year’s Day, the second installment in Kimberly Kinrade’s The Three Lost Kids Trilogy will be out—Bella World. Once again, she has teamed up with artist Josh Evans to create a spectacular lower-grade adventure.
Hot on the heels of that will be Maddie World, the third installment in the trilogy….
…followed quickly by the omnibus edition that combines all three books in a single Three Lost Kids edition.
And so, as you can see, it’s gonna be a fun holiday season! I’ll be back on the release dates with all the appropriate links for purchase. Please enjoy!
And please, have a safe and prosperous holiday season. Merry Christmas!
