Today is an exciting day, at least for me. It might be the best part of writing books for a living. I’m going to write the Big Finish of The Crusader’s Kiss. I have it all mapped out and the dialogue is running in my head. I’m excited about the ending of this book – it’s not predictable but it’s satisfying. This is my favorite kind of Big Finish.
This book is very late. It’s been a fighter, mostly because I didn’t want to take the predictable path through the plot. I’m quite pleased with the result, even if I am late. You may have noticed that I moved the publication date from the 19th to the 31st of this month – I actually did that earlier, when I realized that Duncan and Radegunde’s second installment (The Crusader’s Handfast: Part Two) would be published the same week as Bartholomew and Anna’s book unless something changed. It all worked out well, though. Even better, even though I’m running late, my partners are picking up the time for me and have committed to crazy turnarounds in order to ensure this book is published on time.
The buy links for The Crusader’s Kiss are live at Kobo and iBooks right now – they’ll appear at the other portals once the final book is uploaded. Expect them around the 20th of this month. I have the reader letter to upload and share with you, and then some more things to catch up on next week. It’s been quiet on the blog this week, but that will change. If you’ve emailed me and are waiting on an answer about anything, you’ll probably hear back on that next week, too.
Today, it’s all about Sir Royce getting what he deserves. Mwa ha ha. I love this part!
