But stay tuned for some bonus stories coming in the next few weeks!
…I’m just not sure when.
Sorry I’ve been MIA! I was in the midst of planning the next book of Chatoyant College when I had to go back to work. Between work and the baby, I’ve had a lot of difficulty finding time to write, not to mention some free brain space.
However, we have the baby on a sleep schedule now, and I’m slowly being able to carve out more time. I’m planning to do National Novel Writing Month next month (as usual), and that will force me to get my schedule figured out! Hopefully after November, I will be able to keep up the momentum and get back to Chatoyant College.
If you follow me on Patreon, I plan to post some of my NaNoWriMo stuff there–I’m not sure how much exactly, but at least it will be something I can show.
Again, I’m very sorry for the long delay between updates! I wanted to let you all know that neither I nor the story are dead!
Book 12 of Chatoyant College, Reemergence, is now complete.
I know there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered. That’s why I may be taking a longer hiatus than usual between books, to figure out what exactly needs to happen in Book 13. I already have a pretty good idea of the major plot, but I’d like to plan some of the details, as well.
I don’t know exactly how long my hiatus will need to be, but I’ll make another blog post before Book 13 starts and you’ll see the first chapter (or the prologue, if there is one) both here and at Wattpad.
In the meantime, I’ll package Book 12 up as an ebook. That will be pay-what-you-wish on Smashwords, just like the others, but Patreon patrons will have access to it before anyone else. If you want that ebook first, become a patron!
I’m also working on turning the earlier books into ebooks as well. Book 4 is already available to Patreon patrons, and will be on Smashwords soon.
Talk to you in a few weeks! (Or sooner than that, if you follow my Patreon–there will be a Perennials story free to everyone this month, as well as the usual monthly patron-only story. I’m posting other goodies for patrons, too!)
Hi friends! I’ll be celebrating the holidays (at least two of them) with my family this weekend, so I won’t have time to get a chapter written. The next chapter of Book 12 will go up on December 29!
I hope you are all having a wonderful, happy, and safe holiday season!
If you’ve been wanting an ebook copy of your own–in any format, not just the PDF I used to offer for donations–it’s now available at Smashwords!
The book is set to pay-as-you-wish, so please feel free to download it for free. However, if you want to tip me for writing the story by paying for a download, I’d be happy about that as well 🙂
The other books are coming to Smashwords, and will hopefully take less time, except that I need to get covers made for them, and in some cases, actually create titles…
I also want to do some more work on this website to make it easier to use in the meantime. If anyone happens to know of a plugin or theme for WordPress (I’m not sure if one or both would do the trick) that would automatically create links within each chapter’s post to the next and previous chapters, please let me know!
<a href=”https://www.patreon.com/posts/november-2016-7176107″>The prompt post is up here</a>! This month’s theme is <b>endings</b>.
It’s open to anyone to prompt–so please feel free to head over there and leave a prompt (or leave one in the comments here)!
If you pledge just $1 a month, you’ll get to read the exclusive short story that I will post for Patreon supporters. If you pledge $3 a month, you’ll get access to a monthly epub file including all the posted Chatoyant College chapters from the previous month as well as the Patreon story.
I got home late last night and found that RescueTime had blocked WordPress. I have now taught RescueTime that WordPress is a productive site, not a distracting one, so that problem shouldn’t happen again!
