I Hate Wait

So, we have a delay.  I've been sitting here, writing the next book, looking forward to posting chapters.  I can't do that until Book Four is out, of course, because Spoilers.  SO.  MANY.  SPOILERS.  You people will shoot me in the face for all the spoilers.

And naturally, I get a message from my publisher that the publication date on Nemesis is getting moved back.  My editing notes haven't even arrived yet, so it wouldn't be physically possible to publish on the 1st as planned.  I'm going to hold it to within the month of May, and the specific offer I got was the 27th.  Waiting another four weeks for you folks to get to read this awesomeness does not please me, but I have little choice.

Preorders, at least, should go up on the 1st.

Seriously, I am vexed more than anything because you folks will go nuts over Nemesis, and I can't wait to watch that.  My alpha readers promise that the book gets better and better as it goes along.

Hooray For Complete!

Book Four, Please Don't Tell My Parents I Have A Nemesis, is complete.  None of my alpha readers saw the ending coming, and said they're hooked for the final book, so that's a good sign.

My intent is to write the fifth and final Penny book next, although I can't post anything until this book is out because SO MANY SPOILERS.

Right now, I'm trying to remember who my beta readers were.

Supervillains and Traditional Law Enforcement

Someone in the previous thread asked how local and federal government felt about superhumans.  This was such a good question, I thought the answer deserved being moved to its own post.

One Final Taste!

I bring you your final teaser for the fourth book!  I may have to take these down soon.  I'm not sure how happy my publisher will be, and they're setting up some kind of... contest, or special membership program, or something.  Access to chapters as they're written was discussed as an option.

EDIT - Wow, I goofed!  I can't believe I was THREE chapters behind showing you guys stuff!

Chapter Four

Chapters Five and Six

Also, minor good news.  The audiobooks have sold so well, the fourth book has already been contracted.  That's actually unusual in a small press.  It means the audiobook company thinks I'm a safe bet.

I'll try to write the rest as fast as I can!  It really helps to know you folks are interested.

This Will Be The Day We Waited For

Book is out!  Book is OOOOUT!

https://www.amazon.com/Spider-Superhuman-Intelligence-Please-Parents-ebook/dp/B01LYNX2DQ/


For those of you who have been patiently waiting, because I don't THINK I handed out many beta read copies, you finally can read the rest of I Did Not Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence!

If you have time after reading the latest chapter of Penny's continuing story.  Chapter Three!  I probably can't provide many more, but I'd like to at least give you Four.

EDIT - I just found out from my publisher, they now will give out epubs or pdfs for those people who use other ereaders beside a kindle.  What you do is, you buy the Amazon kindle version, and email them the proof of purchase at marketing@curiosityquills.com

When Old Books Get Too Weird

Okay, so, I just recently read Children's and Household Tales by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.  This would have been the perfect place for a review anyway, but it didn't occur to me until now.  Now, I have no choice but to review it, because something is so weird it sticks in my craw.

Still Trudgin'

Things got rather... uh, interrupted there, for a bit.  I haven't been able to do more than glance over your previous thread.  Goodness, you people love discussing Penny's power.  I don't mind that at all!

But I really thought you should have the sample of chapter two.
