This is my current book publishing snapshot:
Forever Fifteen PUBLISHED Forever Fifteen is sold at Kindle, AllRomanceebooks.com for 99 cents. If you paid $8.99 for the Barnes and Noble version, PLEASE CONTACT ME at the email address to the lower right side of this page. This price is actually a mistake (long, boring story) and wasn’t supposed to be on B&N. Right now I’m in the process of pulling Forever 15 from B&N and starting over with them. The print version of Forever Fifteen is sold exclusively through Lulu. My apologies for versions that show up on Amazon for freaking $27.00 or some nonsense. You can get the big-size paperback book through Lulu for 16.16.
BTW, Forever Fifteen is selling extremely well on Kindle. Just in August, which at the date of this writing is not nearly over yet, I’ve sold about 200 copies just on Kindle (it’s also for sale on AllRomance). I’m starting to receive royalty payments since I started with Kindle Direct Publishing in the beginning of June. They sent me $10 for May and payments of $80 and $150 are forthcoming from what my royalty report says.
Forever Fifteen II: Burial PUBLISHED The Burial eBook is sold at Kindle ONLY until September 15, 2012, when I will arrange to sell it everywhere else in all other formats. Burial is not yet available at B&N or AllRomance. The print version is available for around 15.15 or so from CreateSpace.
Forever Fifteen III UNWRITTEN My plans are to begin writing 1000 words a day on the third and final book in the Forever Fifteen series November 1, 2012. I invite you to follow my writing progress on Twitter @queeniemusic.
Honey PUBLISHED Honey is out on AllRomance and Kindle direct as an eBook only. AllRomance was the first to pay me after I published with them in June – $50 for sales of Honey, my first foray into the world of m/m erotica.
Money UNPUBLISHED Just last week I finished the first draft of Money, the sequel to Honey. The end product totaled about 33,000 words. I plan on releasing Money and Honey as a Createspace print book, basically 2 novellas in the same book. Probably will re-release Honey with a discount if you buy it along with Money. Of course Money will be available as its own ebook.
River’s Heart UNPUBLISHED River’s Heart is a finished book, however, it is still being proofed by my dedicated fan proofreader, Marie Wilson Krieger. She has proofread a bunch of my stuff for free, including my Labyrinth fan fix and Forever Fifteen II: Burial. So far I have only paid her in Cheetos and tourist swag from Chicago, methinks I should come up with a more capital-oriented arrangement, yes?
Books planned for the future: I wrote my own guitar method called the I Love Music Theory Method for Guitar which still needs some refinement before I send it to the printers. I don’t have a schedule on it because right now I just use it with my own students.
After the Forever Fifteen series is done, I plan on diving into a new series called The Dream of Flight about a young American girl who gets sent to a haunted boarding school in remote northern Japan. 3 books are planned for that series, each revolving around a different character.
I want to release a short story anthology at some point called Bedtime Stories for the Criminally Insane. My Horror Addicts award winning story, the Butterfly Collector, will be the centerpiece of this anthology but I want to write a few more for it as well that combine dark sexual themes and horror in the same way as Butterfly Collector.
In the very distant future, I plan on writing a fictional prequel to the Amityville Horror, detailing how that place got so darn haunted.
