January News and Notes


Now that the holidays are completely over and the freshness of the new year has completely worn off I figured it was time to give my first update of the year. I have several things worth mentioning so it is best that I get right to them.

New News:

I've recently joined Wattpad. I've heard a lot about the site and thought I should probably take the opportunity to join. I've been posting samples of my books there and I will continue to do so for the rest of the month until I'm just about caught up so take a look over there and if you have an account feel free to follow me (mindsofldaniels). As with my social media accounts, I tend to follow back and I'm a serial liker.

On Encroachment:

In just a few short days, specifically January 23rd, I will expand the release of my short story Encroachment. Currently the story is only available on Amazon but on the 23rd I will be publishing it to Smashwords and their associating distribution partners. Also I will be reducing the price from $2.99 to $0.99!

On Prisoner of Castigation:

I still have not finalized release details on this book. I am aiming for a spring release with an ideal target of late March. I will be undertaking the process of designing the cover very soon and I will share that once I come up with my final design.

On The Lost Stories Book 4:

I have not yet begun to write the story just yet but I am ready to reveal that the story will revolve around the character Hiroma. As for the direction of the story, it will most likely parallel Encroachment in which a good portion of the story will center around Hiroma's time away from the compound and the condition that sets him apart from his colleagues. Some of his quirks are introduced in Without Mercy and I will be expanding on that for this story.

Special Acknowledgments:

I'd like to take the time to single out a couple of authors. Over the past few months I've had the opportunity to read their stories and I thoroughly enjoyed them. The first mention goes to Allison Goh, author of the Egalia series. Her YA dystopian themed books are quick, action-packed reads about the secrets and hidden agendas of the people in charge of running what appears to be a perfect and equal society.

I would also like to give a special mention to Jim Heskett, author of the Five Suns Saga. These four books are politically themed dystopian thrillers focusing on the frenzied state of the US as each new revelation about a group of political masterminds sinks the country deeper into apocalyptic chaos.
