Getting the first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine wiped me out for a couple of days this week, so I only got Queen’s Gambit up to ~70,000 words. Not nearly as far as I wanted to get, but it’s how it goes. Honestly, I didn’t even realize I had any side effects at first, it was only after half a day passed by with my brain feeling like mush that I realized it was causing me issues. I’m pretty much over it at this point, and hoping to finish the rough draft this month. I’ve also commissioned artwork for it, but Mario Wibisono, the same artist who did the covers of Queen of Diamonds and Queen’s Journey, is busy until later in the month so it’ll probably be into May before I’ve got cover art.
Speaking of cover art, I’ve decided to hold off on sharing what I got for Evelyn until I have something I feel is accurate, which is also going to be coming from Mario after Queen’s Gambit is done. I’m just not happy with sharing it at this point. The audiobook of Queen’s Journey seems to be stuck in review hell on Audible, so getting it via other channels like Google Play, Chirp, Nook, or others seems to be the best idea at this point unless you’re fine with waiting. Nothing I can do about Audible, unfortunately.
Anyway, hopefully I have better news next week! Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
