Hurry Up and Wait

So, my publication date has been pushed from November 2014 to the summer 2015.

At first I was all…


But then, I was like…


Maybe this isn’t such a bad thing after all. The marketing people from Ellechor have begun putting together my marketing package, and it’s enough to keep me busy for some time. I won’t bore you with the details, but suffice it to say answering all 100, 000, 000 questions for the author interview, compiling book-tour blog sites, and creating online profiles has been a bit overwhelming.

I also just finished the outline for the second book in the Sons and Daughters series…51 pages of notes, plots, subplots, and budding dialogue. I had always planned on finishing the novel before Daniel and the Sun Sword came out in November, but that deadline was starting to look unrealistic. It took me about 8 months to write the first novel, and then several months of editing.  How was I going to do that while editing and marketing the first one? Not to mention being a husband, dad, working full time, whine, whine, whine. You get the picture.

Now, however, I’ll have plenty of time to work on marketing the first novel, finish the second, submit it for publication, and do all the other things my life requires.

Now, I’m all…
