Why hello there lovely readers. I have a surprise that I spoiled in the title of this post!
Out of Light is now available for preorder! It will be released on October 5th, 2019!
For now only the eBook is available because I don’t know how to do preorders with the physical copy.
Out of Darkness is, of course, still available. You should all buy it so I can get 100 sales.
Now that Out of Light is done, I will focus on Into the Void and decide if it is a viable third book. If not I’ll scrap it and move on to different worlds and different magic.
Out of Darkness is on sale this week, in case you wanted to know that. Here’s a nifty link https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079PSMDJR We’ll call it the “Tweaked Cover Sale” or something like that. Sounds legit. Only the eBook version because that’s just how it rolls I guess.
That’s the whole post, I didn’t think of anything else to write while I was typing that. So here is a picture of some kittens I wish existed.
Well, obviously they exist, just not in those colors.
Okay, well that’s not quite right. It’s not new so much as tweaked a bit. And the paperback now has a proper spine and back cover! But “new cover” is easier to say than “Slightly different cover for Out of Darkness that now also includes a back cover and spine.”

I got the proof copy yesterday, and even with the huge “Not for Resale” across the front it’s still pretty. That’s the entire post, I don’t have any other updates or things to say.
I just got through editing for the past three hours. The first hour was rough, kept losing focus and then suddenly I was in the groove and it’s 6 pm and I’m hungry and can’t remember if I’m me or my character.
Okay, now that’s a bit of an exaggeration. (But only a bit.) I love Out of Light, but I’m fast approaching one of the chapters I always have trouble editing. I had a chapter or two similar to this in Out of Darkness and I would end up procrastinating for a week to avoid the character’s death. I’m not sure, but I might be a little too attached to my characters.
Edits are coming along nicely, though. Pushing 50k words of the rewrite. I’ve killed about 4k words, I’m aiming to drop Out of Light from 125k to about 100k which given my tendency to ramble (who me?) that’s probably easily done.
Okay, I started this post with a clear ending in mind, it had a point and everything, but I seem to have lost it so I’ll just end here!
PS: Thanks for reading.
So, Out of Darkness has been available for sale for a week! (Plus a couple days, just pretend I wrote this on Friday.)
Paperback sales: 25 | eBook sales: 11
36 books! How crazy is that?! One of the charts on KDP also says there were 13 pages read through KU, but I don’t know how that works so I’m just ignoring it.
Not much to update on the Out of Light front. Edits are going well, though I may change my mind on that once I start letting anyone else read it! I missed these characters so it’s been fun to “meet” them again.
Okay, I’m done rambling! Have a good rest of your weekend, see ya next time!
