So I have an incredibly busy week ahead of me, culminating in the Windsor International Writers Conference this weekend at the Holiday Inn Ambassador Bridge. If you’d like to join me, there’s still space available for last minute registration, wink wink.
I’m currently working on a number of projects, the main one being preparing Karen McCreedy’s Unreachable Skies, Vol. 1, which releases August 17th and has a cover reveal coming up July 17th! I’m super excited for this release because it’s Karen’s first novel and she’s written a remarkable and beautiful blend of Sci-fi and Fantasy. Set entirely on another planet, without a human in sight, Unreachable Skies is the story of an apprentice fate-seer named Zarda who is tasked with guiding her people through a difficult time following a plague that has left the new generation of their kind without wings. This will be the first installment in a planned trilogy and we should see the second book in 2019.
I’m also working on our September release, the much-anticipated Mixter Twizzle’s Breakfast written by Regan W.H. Macaulay and illustrated by the talented Lulu. I’ve just received the art and it is ADORABLE. Partner that with Regan’s really clever and unique writing style, and I just know you’re all going to fall in love with the egg-thieving Mixter Twizzle like we did!
And last but not least this year, I’ll soon be starting work on The Gimmal Ring by Windsor’s very own Karen Koski. I’m looking forward to diving in to this middle grade urban fantasy, but first it has to go through Robert’s very capable hands and I think it’s fair to say I have enough on my plate at the moment!
So this week I’ll be looking over some submissions I’ve received in preparation for meeting one on one with some conference attendees, and judging some contest entries, then on Friday I’ll be hosting a round-table intensive where I’ll help a facilitate a group of writers as we review and critique the samples of their work they’ve brought with them. I’m also looking forward to listening to all the great workshops and keynote speakers and of course, participating in the panel discussions. It’s going to be a lively weekend. So if you can make it, even to one of the days, I recommend it!
Thanks for reading!
