Monthly Author Check-In: “Seriously, Where the Heck is Your Next Book?” Edition
Forgoing my usual template, because I’m just going to jump straight to it: Yeah, I said that Who’s Afraid of Amy Sinclair? would be out in “early 2019” and… obviously I dropped the ball on that, hardcore. I’m sorry, and I’m really sorry that I haven’t been more present here on my blog and more open about the delay.
The thing is, I get into this weird headspace when I’m behind on deadlines, where I don’t feel like I can talk about it until I have solid, concrete news to share—an updated release date, or something—and so far I just haven’t. This book has been fraught with delays and complications and self-doubt, and it’s been a real challenge to get it to the point it is today. I can say that I am really proud of it finally, and it is almost done by now, but “almost done” is nebulous by design. I really don’t want to curse myself by setting a fixed release window, because the last time I did that, hoo boy. No sooner had I made my “early 2019” declarations that everything went to shit, so… yeah, I’m hesitant to be too specific. I really need this book to be done as soon as possible, though, for my own mental health if nothing else, so I’m shooting for this summer—ideally, earlier rather than later.
The one thing I can say with absolute certainty, is that the next book in the series is not going to take anywhere near as long. Probably, no other book in the series will. These delays have all been very specific to Who’s Afraid of Amy Sinclair?, and I’m going to be busting my ass to bring you books 3 and 4 in fairly rapid succession. So thank you all for sticking by me, and I promise, it’s going to be worth the wait.
In the meantime, this summer is going to be truly epic here on the blog. I’m going to be hosting a three month celebration of superheroes, inspired by the idea of the summer blockbuster. So for June/July/August, you’re going to get a post at least once a week, including some special guest appearances. I’ve also got a few exciting announcements coming in these next few months, so you’re not going to want to miss any of that.
