Shadow Bound – Book 4 (Prequel to the Crescent Bound Series)

Some things in life become long overdue.  In writing, I like to say the long anticipated addition to the series.  This is the last line I wrote today.  “The End”  So, you know what that means? No, it is not being published yet. Rounds of editing are due up next. Will it be out in August?  I certainly hope so. I even will go as far as to think so. Can I promise you? Nope, but we can hope and anticipate together now, because as of tomorrow it is out of my hands and into the editor’s.

This novel was quite a challenge for me on so many different levels. It pushed me to nosedive right into a medieval type world, and build my own fictitious nature to it.  I hope that everyone will enjoy it and fall in love with the world I created. I want you to relive Marcus’s past life.  I originally wrote the Crescent Bound series thinking I was writing about Alyssa and her life.  I have now learned that it may be more about Marc and his life and discoveries than I ever thought before. This novel should shed some light on that note for you.

Since I promised in blood to have this one out in July, I owe you all some blood.  I will be bleeding for you with updates right here on my blog.

Here is a little something to wet your appetite.

The Seer and Shadow Walker – Alissa (aka Alyssa)

*The meaning behind her name – The spelling of her name was formed from a plant called the alyssum flower, in a time they had  thought it would cure madness. *

***I highly recommend reading this series in order, Demon Bound (book 3) is definitely a must before diving into this book, it will make sense of why and how this story is revealed.***

As promised I will keep updated posts on here and hopefully soon I will have  the book trailer for you!

Shadow Bound – Book 4 in the Crescent Bound Series – Status Update

Hello Everyone,

I want to give everyone an update on Shadow Bound. One fateful day, not that long ago, I had an accident. Well, my laptop had the accident. The result of that was a major section of Shadow Bound was lost in the literal crashing of my computer with the floor.

I was fuming mad and in tears all at the same time. Fortunately, I had a backup, to an extent. Several of the major scenes in the book were lost.  I felt so distraught over this that I had to set aside Shadow Bound for a while.

I am now back at it and working hard to complete this forth installment into the Crescent Bound saga.  Here is a taste of what I am working on…

I set a release date for late June, well, that is approaching so fast I now see that for this book to be the quality I want then I will need more time. It is a huge pet peeve of mine to make a promise and then not be able to deliver on that date. It tears me up, but I keep telling myself that you, the reader, want a great book, not an alright book that could have been better. So with that thought process in mind I am moving the release date of Shadow Bound into late July.  No exact date, but I believe this delay will help me complete Shadow Bound properly.

 

Here is another sampling of what you are patiently waiting on.

Shadow Bound is coming, it won’t be delayed again, that I promise in blood. I will keep everyone updated as my progress toward the end nears. I also want to share the book cover with you.
