YA Indie Carnival ~ Writer Resolution

Friday, December 30, 2011

Mine is super simple... I resolve to just keep writing! Here is a list of the books I have planned for the coming year:

Forever is my next finished work. This book completes Danielle and Ethan's story. (And here are two preview shots of the cover! I haven't decided which one I like best yet. The center solar flare or the side solar flare. Which one do you prefer? And can you find the pixies?)

Danielle and Ethan may have solved their problem with vampires, but other magical beings have taken interest in the ones who discovered the cure. On the run trying to escape a gaggle of evil pixies, a clan of creepy werewolves, a coven or two of wicked witches, and a school of lovely but naughty mermaids, they fight to have a normal life with the aid of slightly dishonest fairies and flirtatious vampire bodyguards. The end of Celeste and Lucas will be revealed, as well as how Ethan and Danielle recognized each other...and how they finally get their happily forever after.

I know you'll miss these two characters. However, two novellas will come out to supplement the Fateful series. Max and Nadia, and Beon and Sophia will get their stories... One will take place in a historical setting, the other will start out historical and move into modern times. Richard will likely get his own novella as well, and if  you keep asking for more...I'll probably keep going....

Before those novellas, though, I'll release Sophia’s Cookbook for Mortals ~ A fun recipe book featuring recipes Sophia likes to mess up her apron with.

Christian and Tessa from Fair Maiden will get a novella about their wedding since many of you asked for that.

Following that, will be The Trapping club (A sequel to Fair Maiden) ~ Beginning with a magical masquerade and a kidnapping, The Trapping club is the tale of second sons as they struggle for survival in a society that leaves such forgotten. Those who’ve read the first book will be surprised to find that the hero of this next enchanting tale is the brother of the villain in Fair Maiden, and the heroine will be a grown-up Emma...

Book 3 in the Fair Maiden series, is titled The Mistaken Reformer. Peter, Christian’s brother, will be the hero and the heroine is still a mystery as of yet...

And somewhere in the middle of all of this, I'll release The Fairy Ring Enchantment ~ This is the first story I dreamed about, thinking it would be a short picture book. But when I started writing, it was turning into a novel. With no plans of becoming a writer, I was extremely confused by that. I never thought I'd have a novel in me. This is a story about fair rings and why you shouldn’t step inside them...

I enjoyed hearing about your writing plans and look forward to reading them all. Whether the side or center flare on the cover of Forever, I'm really not sure. They both look good to me. Are the pixies the little light circles that I see? If so, I see them better with the side flare. Later Cheri!

Sounds fantastic! We have the best job ever, right? Good luck and happy New Year!!

The pixies are at the bottom around your name??? Personally, I like the off set solar flare. I like asymmetry... I know, I'm weird. Sounds like you've got a lot of exciting things planned for 2012! :)

I love both covers of Forever... I am just ready for the book itself to come out.It is probaly one of my most anticipated reads of 2012.

I like the first one, the one with the light between them. It's sorta representative of their relationship.

I just want to read it! Does it have a set release date? Sorry if it says somewhere and I missed it!

Cheri Schmidt said...

Thank you for visiting my blog and for all of your comments! I wish I could set an exact date for it's release. I'd wanted it to be in 2011, not 2012! Argh! But when I'm reliant on other people to help edit what I'm blind to and to format it for me, my hands are tied.

I hope and I pray it will be released this week!

I'm definitely excited! I say the top right cover with the light coming from between the two of them, if you're looking for input on the cover. :)
