I know it's been a hot minute since I've posted on here. There wasn't a whole lot of movement regarding "Æsa" for a while, as I was waiting for the editor's evaluation of my manuscript to come back.
When it did, the editor mentioned they liked the story and writing a lot better. This didn't come as a huge surprise to me, as the story came far more naturally than "Red" did. "Red" was years in the making and stood alone until after "Æsa" and the third book were written, only then did I go back and make changes to have "Red" fit in with the rest of the series.
A little fact about "Æsa", it is a very loose retelling of The Little Mermaid, and like "Red" focuses heavily on grey characters with pasts that haunt them.
In the next few months, as "Æsa" is put together by FriesenPress, I'll share bits and pieces. Right now the cover design is being revised, the manuscript is being edited. Once I get those back, I'll do a cover reveal as well as share some excerpts from the book!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this process. A bonus shout out to people who have had "Red" as a book club pick, I cannot thank you enough.
Stay tuned for more updates on "Æsa" coming up!
