I absolutely hate giving people bad news, and today I’m here with some bad news. Thanks to a week of being sick and being way behind on the draft of the novel I just finished, The Absence of Intellect will be released on Thursday, November 1st instead of today.
As much as I wanted to release it today, it just wasn’t where I wanted it to be format-wise and I chose to delay the release a couple of days rather than put out a substandard book.
I know some of you who were following Absence were looking forward to downloading the full story, and I’m truly sorry for letting y’all down.
The new story on the blog will still start the first week of December, and as it’s being written for NaNoWriMo you’ll be getting it hot off the press. I hope you enjoy it as much as this one, and that you’ll support Absence on Thursday when it releases. It’s still going to be free to download, so if you’ve been thinking of buying one of my books but wanted to check my writing out first, this is your chance! The other blog books are going to be $0.99 permanently, which is still a bargain, so keep an eye out for those too.
Thank you for your patience! Y’all are the best!
If you’ve been reading the pieces of Absence of Intellect that I’ve been posting on Wednesdays, I hope you’re enjoying the story! I’ve had an idea about it and I’m hoping you’ll enjoy that as well.
Once Absence is completed, I’m going to re-edit it and put it up on Amazon and in KU. It’ll be e-book only and permafree, so if you missed a chapter or just want to read the whole thing from the beginning, you’ll be able to own it and read it at your leisure. It’s going to be novella length, probably around 30-32K, and hopefully it’ll spark interest in my other books.
So far I’ve written 15 chapters and have 3 more to write, so it’ll be a couple of months before any of this happens but I’ll put all the news here so you’ll be the first to know when it does. I’ll likely release it around Christmas with no preorder, so no pesky waiting!
I hope you’ll keep reading the chapters of Absence as they’re posted, and give me your feedback on them. I’m looking forward to doing this and possibly started a new story after this one is concluded. I’ve got a bit of an idea sort of rolling around in my head that seems like it could be a good novella.
There’s always the possibility that I’ll get impatient and start updating twice a week or something like that, but we’ll see where this goes. Writing is a wild ride and sometimes all you can do is hold on and hope the brakes work.
My new book Only a Rogue Knows is now available on Amazon for Kindle and in KU! To celebrate, I’m offering Drowned History for FREE this weekend! If you haven’t picked up your copy yet, now is the time to do it.
If you haven’t read any of my work and want to check it out, the book will be free on Amazon from Friday, June 15 through Monday, June 18! Tell your friends, too, the more the merrier!
If you do pick up a free copy, be sure to leave me a review and let me know what you thought about it! And if you absolutely hate it, let me know too. I don’t offend easily and appreciate constructive criticism. It wasn’t my favorite part of my English minor but it really helps develop a thick skin because college can be petty.
