No WWW Wednesday today, as it’s pretty much the same as last week. Instead: I’d like to talk about my publishing schedule.
As I may have mentioned before, I’d really like to get two books out next year (2012) and three books out in 2013.
Tentatively, my publishing dates for 2012 are May 13 and November 13. I will always publish on the 13th of any month, regardless of the weekday, because it’s my favourite number 🙂
My Spring book will be called The Violet Fox. The cover is pretty much in production, and the first draft is over half way complete. Plot-wise, it’s kind of a cross between The Mask of Zorro, Cinderella, and The Little Mermaid, set in a fantasy world that is divided between the people who live on the surface (the Marlenians), and those that are forced to live in caves (the Freetors). A 16-year-old girl who lives underground must disguise herself as a Marlenian princess to retrieve stolen magical documents in the castle in the middle of Marlenian city…but gets more than she bargains for when she uncovers a potential assassination plot and, of course, falls for the handsome Marlenian prince.
I haven’t decided what I want to publish for November 2012. Either it will be the 3 Day Novel Contest novel that I wrote this year, entitled Kidnapped (young woman gets kidnapped by her boyfriend’s desperate, estranged father) or another novel called First Blood, which is more dystopian (women live in a society where they are not allowed to menstruate).
In either case, it’s going to be a busy year! I also have manuscripts lined up for 2013, but most of them are still in the concept stage, or aren’t finished yet.
