Update on Release Dates for Dust and Core’s Attack

Happy Sunday everyone!
A quick post to keep everyone up to date on what is going on. Over the last month I’ve been extremely tired. I’m pretty sure it is the heat and allergies as I have a sore throat and a cough that I can’t quite get rid of. I’ve been pushing myself to ignore it. While I was in Spokane it hit me hard when not one, but three people mentioned that I needed to be nicer to myself and listen to what my body has been telling me. I’m one of those that will go-go-go until I drop. Well, I’m stumbling at the moment.
So, long story short Dust and Core are going to be slightly late by a couple of weeks. One of the things I will never do is short-change a story for a deadline. I write as long as the characters talk. Dust is turning out to be an amazing story and nothing like I expected which makes it even more exciting. I know Core and Runt will do the same.
At the moment, I’m looking at releasing Dust now on July 10th and releasing both Core and Runt on July 31st. That may change depending on/if the exhaustion I’m feeling doesn’t pass. This time of year the heat, humidity and every blooming thing under the sun seems to have my name written all over it.
I hope you bear with me and aren’t too disappointed. I hate being late with anything and it drives me batty that my body is not listening to my head at the moment.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and thank you for being there as I work through this.

      Thank you, Alice. I hope you are feeling better. It sucks when you are feeling off—and hurts when you break bones! LOL. I’m quickly learning that’s no fun, so I’m crossing it off my bucket list to ever do again.

    I hope you are feeling better! I was wondering when the Core’s attack and Runt are releasing? Also can you give a hint for Aadalhard (sp)and Samara? Curzian Warriors? I love that whole connected series!

      It is exciting seeing so many of the series connect together. Susan will have Core’s Attack out by the end of this year and there are a heap more stories coming in 2019.
      Cheers Narelle
