It's been a while...
Happy October, everyone! It's been a bit since I posted last, and I wanted to chat with you all about upcoming projects and what JH and I are up to for the rest of 2020.
Like the rest of the world, we have been under stressors and been bogged down with worries for most of the year. From March until September, our family was with us full time, which meant we had a lot of fun, but there were also some pretty rough days in there, too. But we soldiered on and made the best of it. Writing was shuffled to the back burner for a bit, but we were pleased to finish with our projects for this year: Augmented Creatura, Legends of Xavalon, and Rise of the Spell Thief. JH and I are so proud that we have managed to complete three full series this year, with 6 novels published and 7 novellas published! It was a great ride and we are so pleased that you all came on it with us.
But now, stressors in life are creeping back up again. Covid-19 is starting to take hold of our little community, and that means that our littlest family members are back home and school is out. Daily work assignments are catching up with us, and JH and I are struggling to find the time to write our stories.
So, it is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that we will not have another new release this year.
JH and I are currently working on our first standalone novel, a piece that we lovingly call "Escort Quest," which came out of the frustrations of escorting a Tauren through Feralas in World of Warcraft one night. But this new story is moving slow, and while we are both dedicating time each evening toward writing it, our publishing pace has to slow down to make way for life.
As of right now, we are looking to do some more fun things with our current works, though.
Augmented Creatura, a trilogy about AR monsters come to life, has went wide! You can now catch this series on Kobo, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, and more!
Rise of the Spell Thief has finished, and we are planning on releasing the monstrous box set of these seven novellas in November!
And The Kobold's Tale will be going wide to other retailers in the near future!
As for the project called "Escort Quest", JH and I are hopeful about finishing the novel, editing it to perfection, and having it out on Amazon hopefully by January 2021. This is subject to change, of course, as life has a funny way of throwing things at you, but right now, in the middle of October, we are feeling very confident that we can have this story to you.
We, along with the rest of the world, are hopeful that 2021 will be a better year. We have stories we still want to tell, and there is nothing in this world quite like writing our characters and scenes that have been stuck in your head. Austin's story and his escort quest are just part of our big picture, and we hope that you all will be patient with us as we move forward with this wild wonderful journey.
Keep an eye on our blog for more info coming, and we will make sure to announce any and all changes to our timeline as we come across them.
Stay safe and healthy!
Milly McAdams is the head writer of the pair!
