Envy and Avery
It's cover reveal time! Here is the beautiful cover for the second book in my Green Witch Village Series! I love it!
In this story, Jade the teenage witch decides to postpone her gap year and take a few classes at the local University. She's enjoying working behind the scenes on the college theater production of The Wizard Of Oz. Jade is busy painting backdrops when a heavy lighting fixture falls to the stage during rehearsal, right on top of one of the other students!
But, the show must go on. It's up to Jade and her friends to solve the mystery and catch the killer before there's another murder in the land of Oz.
So - here's a little hint about Indie publishing. I don't have a release date yet. I don't know when I'll get the book back from my editor and after that, I don't know how long it will take to make the edits and get the final copy. Since I'm the boss of this operation, there are no firm deadlines. I had hoped to have this released well before Halloween but that is not looking realistic. Oh well, better late than never. I really enjoy writing these characters. They're young and naive and they make mistakes. There's a hint of romance and plenty of magic in this one.
The first draft of Green Witch Envy took me two months to write. For comparison, my 4th book in the Grace Texas series, Avery Now and Then, took me a year. Why the difference? I've been asking myself that question. I love writing the Grace Texas series just as much but I did struggle with getting Avery finished.
During the year I was writing Avery, I moved into a new home and my day job was more demanding at the time. There were family things that came up like they always do. I was also learning and trying new marketing techniques. Even so, I don't really know the answer.
Early reviews for Avery Now and Then are good. It's got 4.6 stars on Amazon so I don't think the writing suffered for being a longer project.
I have plans to continue both series and even start a couple more, so stay tuned!
