Another Afextra Update

Hi all, so I just wanted to write this post to give you guys another update about Afextra. I know it has been a while, which I do apologize for, and I hate that it has taken me so long to bring this book. I started Afextra back in 2012 and I knew early on that this would be the first book I published. I wanted to do something different which is why I incorporated Gargoyles into the novel. Anyway, this post is just to kind of let you all know what happened over the past year that delayed me publishing my book.

First of all, my grandfather died suddenly which was really difficult for my family because he was my last living grandparent and the only one that I had really gotten to know. A little bit after he died my mother was hospitalized for a major health condition. She later went on to be hospitalized four more times last year and then again this year. She is not recovering and we pray that she has beat the condition that has been trying to take her life.

 Thankfully all of that is in the past and my focus is fully on Afextra and publishing it as soon as possible. Like I mentioned in my last post Afextra is due out October 2014, but I might be moving the release date up since things are moving quicker now than I expected them to. I plan on posting an Afextra Teaser on Tuesday so stay tuned. I'm really excited about everything and I hope that you guys are still excited to read this book because I am going to publish it ASAP.

Also, I am in the process of reorganizing the blog tour that I was putting together when I had first planned to release Afextra. I will be giving more details about that very soon. Thank you guys for hanging in there!
