new authors

It’s 2018 and we’re off with a bang!

Ok, well it’s not quite 2018 yet. Still a few more days to go. But we’re ready to start our fifth year with a bang!

We’re ready to write 85,000 words by the end of March, 2018.

First up, Murandy and I will be participating in the #85K Challenge for the 3rd year in a row. If you’d like to join us on this adventure, you’re more than welcome to. If you don’t know what the #85K Challenge is, it’s a community of writers working to complete 85,000 words, (approximately the length of your average adult novel) in 90 days. You can read more about it and sign up to complete the challenge on their website 85k90.com or on Facebook. Murandy and I have competed each year since the challenge was founded and we’ve found it to be a reasonable, though still challenging, pace and a great community to be a part of. And the community support doesn’t stop in March! The website has details for what to do the rest of the year to stay focused on your writing goals and complete your novel. It works for us, and I highly recommend the program.

We’re ready to announce our 2018 line up and will be doing so over the next few weeks! 

We’ve got some really great books coming your way in 2018 and we’re really excited to be able to announce them. We’re going to do so one at a time, starting next week, so subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already so you don’t miss any of the exciting announcements. We’ve got two new authors we’ve added to the family and six new books for the year. It’s going to be fun.

We’re ready to make edits to the third book in the Mirror World series, Mirror’s Deceit.

Mirror’s Deceit has come back from the beta readers and over the next month or so, I’ll be working on edits and rewrites. The cover art is done and we’re on target to have this book in your hands for May (or earlier if you’re a member 😉 Learn more about membership and its benefits here.)

And we’re looking forward to seeing those of you who can make it to A Taste of Literature event on January 15th to celebrate Sharon Ledwith’s Lost and Found: Mysterious Tales from Fairy Falls.

This weekend we’ll be in London, Ontario for the Southwesto Book Expo!

Also, we’ve been asked by the Expo and the London Writers’ Society to make ourselves available to listen to queries and pitches from authors, so if you’d like to speak to us or hand your submission in IN PERSON this is your opportunity to do so! Either way, we look forward to meeting you!
