I wanted to put up a quick post this week to keep everyone in the loop regarding Kira, the Rainbow Princess.
A lot of people have been asking about Kira's launch date -- especially because they're starting to think ahead to Christmas and the idea that Kira might make a nice present for a middle-grade (3rd -8th?) child.
Unfortunately, as of today, I still can't commit to a definite launch date for Kira. There are a couple of reasons for this. One of the things I've discovered about being a self-published writer, is that it's a lot like juggling. You throw multiple balls up into the air and then you try to keep the faith that those various projects will land as you expected. So how does that relate to Kira?
Next week, I will send Kira, the Rainbow Princess to my editor, Liam Carnahan at Invisible Ink Editing. I cannot say (with any certainty) how long it will stay with Liam before he sends the revisions back to me. My best guess is 4-6 weeks, but honestly, who knows? Once I get the edited version of Kira back in my possession I'll be able to lock in a definite launch date.
The Good News is that (if everything goes according to plan) Kira should be available on Thanksgiving Weekend . . . making it the perfect literary present for any of your middle-grade friends and family!!!
Thanks for being patient as I try to navigate this publishing process for only the second time in my life (without a very good map or compass).
Finally, one last note. Next week I would like to post a Question and Answer for Kira, the Rainbow Princess. So, if there's anything you're dying to know about the story, the characters, or the process . . . please drop me a note in the contact page on my website.
Thanks again for your support!
