Just a Quick Update

Ugh. I feel like I have all of these blog posts in my head that need to actually be put on paper, but typing takes time…time I could be using to write Beauty Beheld! Instead of doing a long post today, I’ve decided to try and give you news-sized bites just to let you know what’s happening behind the scenes.13230281_1576042356059595_1724895104876518421_n

  1. Blinding Beauty is for sale! And by “for sale,” I mean it’s on sale! At 132,000 words, I’ve got the ebook versionĀ up at $3.99 for one more week, then it will be moving up to $4.99. It’s also available for purchase in print form for $15.49. And seriously, I wish I could make that cheaper, but it’s so freakin’ thick! A lot more paper has to be used. (which isn’t a bad thing…because it means it’s a longer story!) I want to thank everyone who supported me along the way (especially my beta readers and early reviewers!), as well as everyone who’s purchased the book. I couldn’t do it without you guys!
  2. I’ve just (like, within the last half hour) finished the complete beats outline of the final book in The Becoming Beauty Trilogy, Beauty Beheld! *HAPPY DANCE* I’m shooting to have it published by Fall 2016, but if I can get it out sooner than that, I’d sure be a happy lady, particularly as it looks like we’ll be moving later this year.
  3. I have some short stories I’ll be posting as blog posts sometime soon. They’re not professionally edited, as they’re only rough drafts, but I’m curious to hear what you think of them. My eye is set, however, on retelling some lesser known fairy tales in short story or novella form soon. I’m curious to see what you all think!

As always, you guys rock! You seriously don’t know how many night I’ll read your reviews or letters as I fall asleep. Writing is really hard work, and it’s easy to fall into the trap of being sure your work is terrible and no one will ever want to read it. Your words are so encouraging, and I thank God in my prayers for every one. If you have a question or comment, don’t hesitate to drop me an email at BrittanyFichterFiction@gmail.com. Have a good night!
