Sorry for the late article! I had a very busy Christmas weekend.
Merry Christmas, and may you have a happy New Year! I hope you had a great Christmas. I certainly did.
So Guardians of Ashith (as you probably noticed) is not being published for Christmas this year. I actually think this works out well, because it’s giving me a chance to double-check it and make sure it’s as good as it can be before it’s published. I made five copies of it and sent it to a few friends and family members, so that they could “beta-read” it. So far there hasn’t been much I’ve needed to change.
As for the next release date– it’ll either be in the last week of April or in one of the first two weeks of May. If you’d like to be a beta-reader and give an opinion on it before it’s published, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll send you a Word file copy of it, and you can tell me what you think. Thank you!
Speaking of release dates, I have been planning for awhile to start an Etsy shop. I’ll be selling various homemade crafts on it– clay jewelry, to start out with. I’ll expand the collection from there. I plan on launching the shop (and, hopefully, an accompanying website) the same time as I publish Guardians of Ashith. I’ve narrowed the name of the shop down to two choices. Please vote in the comments which name you like better:
Option One: CaitlinCrafts
Option Two: CaitlinsCraftCenter
Thank you! I hope you will enjoy the shop.
In honor of its opening, I will be making a charm bracelet for Guardians of Ashith, which will be available for purchase when the shop opens. However, this will be a limited edition. Be on the lookout for it in May 2018!
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. I hope you are enjoying the holidays!
