Still Writing

I feel terribly guilty for not posting anything here for so long, but I am going to use the excuse that I’ve been working hard on the new book (the final part of the trilogy).

Of course, I haven’t just been doing that, but I’m still going to use it as an excuse.

Sales have remained reasonably buoyant since the give-away, slowly tailing off as time passed – as you’d expect. I’ve heard mixed reports from other writers who have tried the scheme, some very positive, some much less so. Overall, I’d say it’s been positive.

The third book is still tentatively scheduled for Summer 2012. I did make a rash promise of June at one point, but that’s looking a little unlikely. I might have finished writing it by then, but by the time it’s been to my proof readers and been through a couple of rounds of edits, it’s likely to slip back a month or two (and – shock! – I’m going to be on holiday for a couple of weeks, and I doubt I’ll get anything done during that time). So, apologies if you’re champing at the bit for the final instalment, and are desperately wondering what happens to Tony and the rest of the family, but I hope you’ll think the wait is worthwhile.

As usual, you can keep up with me on Twitter – @MarshallBuckley

The books are all available on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo (for some reason only Broken is showing there at the moment, that should change soon) and the Sony Reader store.

Finally, if you’ve read either of the books, it’d be great if you could leave a review (on Amazon or where-ever) – reviews are so important for new authors. Thanks.
