FREE Cat’s Eye Chronicles Wallpaper + Ferran’s Map Release Date Announcement

The Good, the bad, and…the good.

Release date changed!

Release date changed!

Hello everyone,

First, before we get to the good stuff, I have some bad news. I will need to push back the release date for Ferran’s Map probably to October. I am not sure of the new release date yet. My editing team is hard at work but looks like we’ll be making more major changes to the manuscript. All for the betterment of the story, of course. This next book in The Cat’s Eye Chronicles will need a bit more work before it hits its juicy, flavorful fruition. (Try saying that 5x fast haha.)

I strongly feel this next installment is going to be the best in the series. I am incredibly excited to release it–when it’s deliciously ready.

This change of release date might even be considered appropriate….if we account for the fact that Ferran’s Map takes place around the winter solstice festival…and now the release date will be a bit closer to winter (at least, in the Northern hemisphere.) A snowy read for the autumn season?

Writing a book is a lot like remodeling a house. You start of with a solid plan, and as you go, you run into complications, hazardous waste tucked behind walls or under floors, bad wiring, old plumbing….You get the gist. Sometimes a project takes longer than we originally expect.

The Good News! Free Cat’s Eye Chronicles Wallpaper, made just for you!

As a peace offering, I have taken a few hours out of my day to create a Crash and Sora wallpaper for all of you! Save it to your computer, share it on Pinterest, put it on your Facebook–whatever you want. I have three different sizes for different screen resolutions. Please download the wallpaper that fits your monitor. In the background you’ll see the City of Crowns and a glimpse of the Temple of the North Wind. Lots to look forward to in Ferran’s Map. 😉

  1. Squeeee wallpaper!!

    • enjoy! 😉

  2. As disappointing as it is to hear that the next book of my favorite series is going to be pushed back, I do hold out hope that this will, as you say, be the best book yet! And so, only by keeping that thought at the forefront of my mind can I patiently wait until October. But I JUST BARELY have that amount of patience.

    Keep up the great work, and keep writing, writing, writing! I’m dying for more (I’ve literally reread the series 4 times now).

    • Well Lauren, if I didn’t care much about the quality of my books, I would push it out the door as-is. But the thought of that makes me want to vomit a little in my mouth, since there are so many scenes I want to make stronger and more enjoyable for everyone. I care about YOUR reading experience as much as my own career. 😉

      I can now imagine how it feels to be an author with a publisher breathing down one’s neck, racing to keep ahead of that next deadline. No wonder so many amazing authors begin turning out “blah” work. I mean, how is one supposed to turn out a 300+ page manuscript over and over again, ideally several times a year? It’s a huge creative drain. Deadlines help, but where quality is concerned, they are NOT an author’s best friend. I refuse to tarnish the quality of The Cat’s Eye Chronicles just because of some editing delays and a poorly conceived deadline.

      On the bright side, when I say I feel this is going to be the very best in the series so far…I absolutely believe it. With all the hard work and long hours going into this manuscript…it’s going to be epic! *excited* ~TL

  3. I’m disappointed to hear that the book’s release date will be pushed back to October! I’ve been practically going insane just waiting for it to come out in August (as in rereading the first three books+Caprion’s Wings), but since I know it’s for the best, because the book must be perfection, I will have to wait.
    The wallpaper is surely amazing, though! c:

  4. I don’t know whether to start pelting rocks over the release delay or throwing confetti that you say it’s going to be the best one yet.

  5. Do you have an idea of the release date for the next book yet? Just curious 🙂 keep up the god work!

  6. I am so excited for October! It’s hard to wait, but at least it’s nothing like my husband waiting years on George R. R. Martin, lol… I am absolutely in love with this series, thank you!

  7. Oh my gosh!! I love this series its different and keeps you on the edge of your seat! When I finished the thrid book i couldnt wait to read what happens next! Please keep writing!

  8. It’s November 2nd…. where is Ferran’s Map….. I’m dying…. Can’t wait
