As 2022 draws to a close, I thought I’d update you about what I’ve been doing in the world of writing.
Unnatural, the first book of the Erica Rosen MD Trilogy, is now available on audio through Audible. I’ve enjoyed hearing my characters come to life through the voice (or should I say voices?) of the talented narrator, Onyx Volcan. If you are curious, you can hear a short clip of the book for free on the Amazon site. Onyx is almost finished narrating the second book of the trilogy, Unwitting. I’m hoping it will be available by the end of this year. Narration of Unforeseen, the final book of the trilogy, will begin in early January 2023.
Most of you probably haven’t heard of Kindle Vella. I recently familiarized myself with this platform for publishing short stories and novellas electronically. Authors can post serialized works on the site, and readers can access episodes on the web at www.amazon.com/kindle-vella or by using the Kindle app. For each story, the first three episodes are free. Subsequent episodes can be unlocked by redeeming tokens which are purchased at various prices, depending on the quantity. Longer episodes require more tokens to unlock. I have a number of short stories saved that I was planning to publish as a collection. Not knowing when I would get around to that, I decided to try Vella. Five episodes of my six-episode story, Pennies from Heaven, are available now. The sixth episode will be published this Friday (remember, Vella allows you to read the first three episodes of each story for free).
Lastly, I want to mention that I’m working on my next book, a stand-alone suspense novel. The first (and second) drafts are done, but I still have more work to do. I hope to publish it in 2023.
Hope to catch you again next year.
