Things have been moving along at a steady pace this week. I'm happy to announce that I finished and sent back the latest edits for Damnation's Door, the first and final Cursed novel due for release in early June. I've also done a little work on the sequel to Crimson Sky, which is going to be out in just six days!
They’re always watching. They’re always waiting. They’re always starving…
Ten years ago, the sky shattered and the Hellions emerged. No one was able to keep them from destroying the city of Westraven. Now that the bloodthirsty monsters rule the skies and have forced the few remaining humans underground, Claire Abernathy lives in a nightmare. She survives by using her skills as an engineer for a ruthless tyrant connected to her mother and father’s past failure.
Then Claire’s world is torn apart when her sister Abby is kidnapped by the Hellions, and Claire herself is taken by dangerous sky pirates known as marauders. But Claire will not be intimidated by them while her sister’s life hangs by a thread, and so she strikes a deal with them: If they help rescue Abby, she will fix their ship and give them the chance to take the revenge they desperately seek.
As Claire fights for her sister’s life, she begins to realize that the Hellions are not the only dangers she’ll face. Burdensome secrets and devastating betrayals threaten her at every turn, and if she loses herself to them, it won’t just be her life that is destroyed…
I'm still working on submitting Crimson Sky to various promotion websites. It's tedious and I'm not sure how well it's going to work in the long run, but all I can do is keep going, right (I read an article about 25 hard truths about writing and publishing, which doesn't exactly put a spring in ones step, but is at least realistic)?
This week is also the first week of a new writing/critique group I've started with a couple friends. It's been a while since I've done one of these and never in with a group of physical people, but it'll be nice to brainstorm and study a little more. I was in charge of the first week's project, and I admit I'm a little behind on it since I'm trying to wrap up the last chapter of the Blood Moon series, but I have an idea and should be jumping into it tomorrow.
And that's all for now! Have a good night! :)
