And today was going so well…
Then I managed to get knocked over by a guy who was rollerblading along the street and shoulderbarged me, and unfortunately I fell really awkwardly and fractured my elbow. Okay, I admit it: as I fell, I landed on a bag of shopping and it was a tin can that did the damage to my poor elbow. How dramatic! The characters in my books never suffer such mundane injuries. I’d post a photo, but there’s nothing to see so far, it’s just slightly swollen and I’m nervously waiting to feel what the pain’s like in the morning.
And guess what? The rollerblader didn’t even stop! Nice!
Anyway, this did slightly delay Dark Season III: Army of Wolves, which will now definitely be out on Wednesday. It’s finished, proofread and checked. I’ve converted the file and uploaded it to Amazon, so Amazon is now doing its thing, which can take anywhere between 12 and 24 hours. So I confidently state that the book will be available this time tomorrow!
I also have to put the Smashwords version up, which isn’t complicated but to be honest I feel I need to take some paracetamol and go to bed. So I’ll sort that out tomorrow and it’ll probably be up before the Amazon version appears.
The good news is that Dark Season IV: The Civil Dead is pretty much finished and should be up in less than a week. If you want an idea for how the narrative is developing, I’d say that The Last Vampire, Sentinel and Army of Wolves form a very loose trilogy in terms of Sophie’s developing relationship with Patrick. The next couple of books are quite standalone, although you will learn something very surprising about Vincent. I’m aware Vincent has been in the background so far, but he’s defnitely there for a reason. As is someone else who has been popping up briefly in each book.
Right. Paracetamol. Bed. Hope you enjoy Army of Wolves tomorrow!
