Halloween Update and NaNoWriMo 2016

An update of what’s going on here in Romanpunk land!

Hi all,

As usual, I’ve completely disappeared for the first quarter of school here in the USA. However, here are some brief, and exciting, updates! Happy Halloween!

  • Cover art is nearly complete
  • Formatting is nearly complete
  • Both illustrations are in the works!
  • Outlining for NaNoWriMo 2016 continues!
  • Sale on Iron Tribune coming this November

Read more about what’s going on below the break!

So yes, just what I said above. What I can also say is that the illustrations should be larger than the last ones (so replacing quantity with larger pics, not a complete match but that’s alright for now.)

As far as a release data goes I’m looking at mid-November. I am not falling into the same trap as last year where I released on Thanksgiving weekend, which was not a good move for many reasons. First, it got overwhelmed by all the other things going on that weekend, plus most of my readers/followers are busy with family time. So I’m definitely going to do it differently, even if it means delaying the release slightly. I’m also going to be beginning work on creating at least a short blog tour to raise awareness of my new release! I’ll be updating you on where I’ll be hopefully by next weekend!

NaNoWriMo 2016 is about to start! If you’re not sure what it is, go and check it out here and here. Once again, I’ll be joining up and hopefully getting as much of Laurel Emperor finished as possible. My goal will be 50,000 words, so hopefully I’ll achieve that! I’ll be posting my updates here nightly (as much as possible, I do have some trips scheduled).

Thanks for joining me again, and remember to like me on Facebook as well!
