House update: We finally got the living room floors in, the rug laid (I forgot how big it was (15'X12'), and a new couch. To say I'm so happy is an understatement. I was ready to burn the house down. It's far from being done. Bryan and I still need to put the tin on the walls as a chair rail and get some trim. But it's a HUGE improvement from not having anything. My next project, I'll probably get to it in July as the next month will be chaotic, is to get the utility room accomplished. Slowly and surely our home is coming together. June is action packed with Braedyn doing baseball and a family trip back to Oregon to see friends & family. But... phew... Oh my gosh I am thrilled to get this house stuff on the right track. It's truly relieving and a blessing.
Onto bookish projects: Aiding Azlyn and Killing Karlyn are both live on Amazon in ebook & paperback. The finale, Reviving Roslyn is releasing next week, May 30th. The boxed set paperback is live in regular print as well as large print. If you want to buy large print, click on the tab - Books - then scroll down to - Large Print Paperbacks - or click here to be taken directly there. I love doing large print books for the vision impaired. Having had Lasik myself, I completely understand the struggles to read. It's either the kindle (or similar) or a small variance of books.
Anyhoot, Reviving Roslyn is the last installment in the Zerelon series and she is such a sweet character. She's pretty demure and thoughtful with a speech impediment. Both my editor and proof reader loved the book, though both are partial to Killing Karlyn.
REVIVING ROSLYN BLURB
Getting his sister back from the men who stole her, was the easy part. Zorion slaughtered them all. Uncovering the reason why Ellanora was stolen in the first place, leaves him with more questions than answers. Finding those elusive answers forces Zorion into an unpredictable corner with choices he never wanted to make; especially in regards to those he loves.
Roslyn spent most of her life alone, secluded deep in the Ukelenori Forest. Her verbal affliction alienated her from the rest of the world. Roslyn’s small way of life shatters when thieves find her. When men come for the woman the thieves stole, a handsome, towering man invites her to be a part of his homeland. However, the more she submerges herself in his world, the more she discovers maybe it was best she stayed in that forest.
Come on an adventure to the land of Zerelon, where everything is more than it seems.
I'm Going WIDE: I've decided to take a few books of mine wide, meaning they will be available on multiple platforms. I'm trying to get my paperbacks figured out for not only Ingramspark but also for D2D (Draft2Digital) and B&N (Barnes&Noble). Due to amazon's increase in pricing, it forced me to increase the paperback prices I currently have. In doing so, I'm currently fighting with Amazon on one paperback I have and it's frustrating. The book published fine 2 years ago and *now* it's a problem. Due to the large monopoly of this corporation, I'm looking to eventually go wide with all my books. So, I'm starting with the Castre Fantasy Romance series and then working my way up. It's going to take me some time to get my footing in taking everything wide, but it's my ultimate goal. I want to continue to give readers amazing books at fair prices.
No Pen Name For Me: I've decided to not to a pen name for my books. I've worked so hard to establish myself as an author and my name/brand is who I really am. Plus, to be the ONLY Shanniak author in the world is pretty dang cool. And I'm serious too. If you type in my last name in google or amazon, I pop up. On Amazon though, you'll find me in an algorithm alongside kayaks but hey, I'll take it. Kayaks are cool too.
The Next Book: The next book I am working on is called - Wicked Witch. This book is set in the same realm as Zuri & Evander were in, in the Dangerous Ties series. This book picks up 60 years later and a lot has changes. Some of the paranormal are completely extinct. Some are in hiding. But one this for certain, is Hadley Birch, a mixed breed witch on the run, can't keep hiding.
I hope you all have a wonderful day, stay safe & have an amazing summer!
