We’re sorry. (But we’re not that sorry.) Let us explain: for the first time in five years, the female is taking off for the holidays. She deserves time with the male. This is the beginning and the ending of that story. Without moving Plaidypus, she couldn’t do that. Moving to May was the sensible time to move it, preventing a backlog of books and crunched deadlines.
That means there will be changes to the publication schedule. We’re also sorry but not sorry for this. (The female’s mental and physical health matter. While she’s game to write ALL of the books… all work and no play makes her bitchy.)
We are sorry for disappointing you, but we’d rather do a little disappointment now in the form of a moved release date than release a disappointing book.
The female’s current writing pace is a stately thousand words a day due to being tired, foot injuries (she really needs to stop doing that), and real life other stuff making a mess of things.
But really? It’s been five years since she’s taken the holidays off without heavy workloads.
So, back to the schedule changes.
This is how 2022 is going to work.
Silent Stalker will release in March as scheduled.
Plaidypus will release in May.
Dirty Deeds 2 (with a Mag Rom Com title) will release in June.
An anthology with a short story will release sometime in the later half of 2022.
After the New Year, the female will be working on Silent Stalker at a steady but slow pace, and she will work on play projects as she wants however long she wants, each day. These play projects will release as finished with a short preorder period (if she feels like it.) Preorder periods will be between 6-12 weeks depending on her mood, the phase of editorial process when she’s loading in the preorder, etc.
The female will probably do a mix of Witch & Wolf and Requiem for the Rift King out of the gate.
Do not expect extra Mag Rom coms for a while. Female is tired and wants a change of pace. Vigilante Magical Librarians and Fox Witch will be worked on as play projects until she decides it is time to hurry up and finish them.
If you want an exact release date for anything “I don’t know” applies.
Patreon will become more active starting in January, although the female is hoping to have two short stories done by the end of the year. Ask the Novella from Hell to play nicely, please.
Anyway, thank you for your support, humans. The female appreciates the chance to rest and breathe–and enjoy some time with the male. Guilt-free time, where writing is only done for fun.
