UPDATE: Release Date, Official Site & Special Offer

Hello Everyone,

I am hopefully going to post a monthly update from now on. I aim to release these updates the first of every month to let you know about upcoming posts, information pertaining to the Prophecy Six Series, changes in the schedule, and you know… some special offers that you may be interested in, (like at the bottom of this post…)

So, let’s get started:

Upcoming Posts!

As some of you have noticed I have started posting some recipes and my photography on this blog. My goal is to turn Prophecy Six Blog into a place where I can share all my hobbies with you such as my cooking, photography, and DIY projects along with keeping it as a hub for my sharing my writing.

With work and managing several sites online I found it was time to accumulate everything into one ‘mega’ blog in hopes that some of you are interested in what I have to post.

Another series I’m hoping to bring back is Prompts, which I aim to put out every Monday.

The Schedule I have planned is:

MondayWriting, Dialogue, or Character Prompts

Tuesday – Photography, recipe, or DIY

Wednesday – Prophecy Six Focused (Character build, themes, images, book bits).

ThursdayThinking Thursdays

FridayOld Word Friday

Saturday + Sunday – Recovery Days or Special Announcement Days

And yes, before you say it, I know I’m crazy… but that’s part of being a writer.

Prophecy Six Series Announcement:

Today marks only 20 days until book two – Children of Sirphan – is released. I’m so excited I’m just jumping with glee.

As the book is being released I have made some major changes to the Official Book site. Such as:

Updated the About Author’s Page, Layout of the Website, Organization of the site, and Character’s of the Series Pages.

What I have recently added to the site are new location information, information pertaining to the Gods, what the series is about, a contact page, and a subscription page.

Why should you subscribe?
Because the first 50 subscribers it a free e-book version of the second book! I will go into detail about this closer to the release date but you can go to the site now, sign up and you would have reserved a free copy of Children of Sirphan. Subscribers also get updated once month about special events and offers before those who aren’t subscribed, meaning you’re more likely to get the offers before they run out. I’d sign up if I wasn’t the moderator. XD

Anyways, I think I’m done for now. I will be posting another update on December 10th, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Until next time stay safe, get creative, and as always toodles! ^.^

 

 

Updates: Beta readers and Editing

Hello World Out There World!!

It has been a while since I’ve done an update but I think it is due since I have things to update all you lovelies on. 🙂

First off!

Only 2 months and 15 days until book 2 – Children of Sirphan – is released and I’m starting to freak out. Not that I’m freaking out due to anything bad, it is just so much to do and so little time to do it. I’m excited to have the second book ready to share with all of you and I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. 🙂

Second on the list! Beta readers!

I never had beta readers for book one but I decided I’d try something new the second time around. I’ve only heard good things about having beta readers… so we shall see. So far I have three and I’m hoping to find two more before the end of the month since I’m looking to get feedback before November 10th at the latest… since I still need to make those changes and have my editor look over the book one last time before print.

If interested in being a beta reader for book 2 go to my contact page and send me an email with the subject – Interested In Beta Reading Book 2

Third on the List!

If you have followed me on Instagram you have probably seen a picture or two of sketches hinting towards them being in the book. The plan is to have each chapter leading with an image that either reflects something in the chapter or talks about an item mentioned in the book. For example: Liora’s earring, the manifest, Caldor’s pipe… and so on.

Hopefully I will get to share more with you as time goes on, but it is balancing life right now that I’m having to focus my attention to.

Fourth thing!

I have been changing up the content on here lately as I want to try new things to see what you think. If there are any suggestions or things you want me to try my hand at on here let me know. These suggestions could be short stories, more weird/ old words, talking about my writing process or self-publishing experience, or a question you have wanted to ask me but haven’t had a chance to. Just let me know! 🙂

All right… so I think I’ve covered everything I wanted to talk to you all about today.

As always thank you for following me on here. I know it has been crazy with me lately and so thank you for being patient. As things are starting to get figured out with my life I am starting to be able to get back to blogging – as you have probably noticed.

Until next time stay safe, be creative and as always – Toodles! ^.^

Today I Published a Book

testingthis

Twelve years ago I started on a journey that many take and few complete.

Twelve years ago, I opened a notebook and stared blankly at those lined pages unsure what to do or what to write. After putting my pencil to paper, and listing ideas down a story started to form and a world began to grow from my words. I created characters that made me laugh, cry, get angry… I learned how to write from writing.

When I put my pen to paper I couldn’t stop. The writing bug had bit me and every moment of every day was consumed by escaping into those lined pages. I spent nights writing to the light of my night-light. I was scolded by my teachers for working on my ‘project’ instead of their assignments.

Writing helped me find people who loved the written word as much as I. Writing gave me teachers that pushed me to do my best and taught me where I could improve. Some of the best advice about life I got from those who taught me to write.

And sure… I had my bad moments with writing as well. I had moments I wanted to give up. There were moments I believed I was never going to be good enough… or would ever have anyone read my story. I was convinced my writing was the worst in the world, and that I was a failure in my craft. There was even a moment in my life that the passion I had as a child died… leaving me staring blankly at the pages with long apathetic sighs. The longer I stared at the pages the more I withdrew… the more it became work…

But somehow in some way it returned to me and here I am writing again.

Twelve years of typos, scratched ideas, sleepless nights, and apathetic sighs. Twelve years of cramped hands, broken pens, spilt coffees, and missing notebooks. Years of lost files, computer crashes, and research…

Twelve years and I can say I did it. All that had work and time I spent writing has finally brought me to this part in my journey. This – of course – isn’t the end of my writing… it is only the beginning but at least I can say something that my 12-year-old self always dreamed of saying.

I – Deanna Wiltshire – have finally published a book.

UPDATE: BOOK RELEASE!

002(184)

OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS!OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS!OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS! OH GODS!

Okay… now that that is out of my system….

The title of this Update says Book Release, and that would mean that now my book is released…

Good news! It’s released, and can be found in e-book form on Amazon. 🙂

REALLY GREAT NEWS! I know I’d say the paperback would be a while longer… but I lied. I’m sorry! Lying is bad I know that but this was the first time I’ve done this so I’m just learning the ropes. The reason why this is really good news though is that the paperback is available on CreateSpace. Those of you that like to order from Amazon will be able to get the paperback off their site in 3-5 days. I’ll do another update when I find out about that. 🙂

Now onto the money.

Depending on where you live it will vary but the major two US and CA I will cover.

E-Book:

Right now for the US this version will cost 0.71c due to some marketing thing they have going.

For the Canadian side, sorry we are not cool enough for marketing or promoting price decreases so it will cost you 0.99c. So, you have a choice to get a small coffee at Tim Hortons or my book. Choose wisely. 😛

 

Paperbacks:

The paperback book on CreateSpace will cost you 9.99. 

I do not know what they will be for Amazon as of yet but I will post an update for that in the future when I get that information. 🙂

 

AND so… that’s all I have for now….

I just want to thank all of you for sticking by me through this awesome six month journey. You have all been wonderful to talk to, learn from, and read about. It’s your support that kept this thing going and without you I don’t think this would have ever gotten to the point of publication.

With that said, this is not the end. Child of the Light is only the first book in the P6 series and there is a long journey to the end. I look forward to posting more blogs in the future and hearing from you in regards to the second books creation but right now I think I’m going to hermit from the world and recover from this roller-coaster for a little while. XD

Thanks again for everything guys and please let me know what you think in the comments below.

Toodles,

UPDATE: Free Preview!!

PREVIEW

So… I know I said I would update in 2 hours but Kindle was being a pain… and then I found out the only way to get a free preview was to go through Smashwords. Now that I got that out of the way, I also discovered upon uploading this to Smashwords that the formate doesn’t like wingdings…

I apologize for the 1H and 2G thing for the chapter heads… formatting isn’t as easy as some may say. I also said the book wasn’t going to be perfect… and I have a few days… 2 days until I have to get this all fixed up.

With that being said, here is my gift to you for all being so awesome. A two chapter preview of my book. Enjoy.

Update: 2 Milestones!

testingthis

There are two big milestones coming up, which I’m so excited about.

One is I am about to get 400 followers, which is absolutely amazing and I still can’t believe. You are what makes blogging so much fun and I love hearing from all of you about my different posts. XD

Two is in three days I will be releasing book 1 of P6 – Child of the Light. This has been a long 6 month journey of writing that all of you were around to experience with me, which I am so grateful for. I may have written this book, but it was your encouragement and support that pushed me to complete it.

So, with that said I will be posting something for all of you soon to hopefully enjoy to celebrate these two milestones with me. I will be posting another update within the next two hours that hopefully will be well received. 🙂

Talk to you soon,

Classy (Deanna) Canuck

Update: 5 Days!

testingthis

5 days! To go… I can’t believe it and just as I’m adding my finishing touches OneDrive dies on me. Thanks a lot Microsoft… not cool.

Oh well, I still have five days… which honestly isn’t a long time but I am determined to publish on the 20th damn it! So Gods help me!

 

Anyways… that’s all I wanted to let you all know. Oh and this:

002(184)

For those of your that haven’t checked out my About Prophecy 6 page where I give a synopsis of the first book and show you the fancy new cover page. Well, you get to see the fancy new cover page now. 🙂

Wishing you all a happy holidays and I’ll update all of you again soon.

Toodles!
