The Mirror of Rorrim—New Release Date!

Yay! *confetti* Isn’t that awesome?

I’m trying to distract you from the fact that I’m delaying the release date for Beaumont and Beasley Book 3. Is it working? No? Drat.

Here’s the thing—I’m having kind of a crazy month. I just got back from a business trip, and so I’m behind on everything, including The Mirror of Rorrim. It’s going well, but I don’t think I can properly manage the launch in my original Halloween timeframe. Which is kind of a bummer, because a Halloween release date would have been cool.

BUT. Maybe I can still give you something Halloween-ish on the 31st. Something short and manageable. We shall see.

Anyway, the new release date for Mirror is November 17. This will give me enough time to send out ARCs, set up a blog tour, etc. I do apologize; I hate delaying stuff, but I know this is the right decision.

So here’s a spiffy new announcement graphic, and a very-slightly-tweaked synopsis. (All I did was change one character name, and yes, it does mean what you think it does.)

1922 E.A. Private-detective-turned-monster Nick Beasley is in trouble. A heroic mission gone wrong has exposed his secret to the world. Fortunately, someone is offering to help—Harry March, a rising star in the motion picture industry. But what is March’s true agenda? And what dark power has been unleashed by his film production of Snow White?

1915 E.A. Street thief Nick Beasley doesn’t believe in magic…yet. These days, he’s mostly preoccupied with making sure that he and his brother Crispin don’t starve. He’s not interested in the rumors about a memory-stealing magic mirror. But an encounter with a mysterious stranger reveals a way for Nick and Crispin to escape their life of poverty.

All Nick has to do is solve the disappearance of Lady Cordelia Beaumont.

Reality is crumbling. Time is turning back on itself. A crisis is coming…and not everyone will escape.

Thanks for your patience, everybody! I’m really looking forward to sharing this book with you.

    Whenever life doesn’t behave, making changes are so important. It’s why I haven’t set a concrete release date for Volume 2 yet. I expect to be able to get it out more or less on my original timeline, but I also do not harbor any unrealistic plans.

    Totally understand! *updates calendar*

    *is distracted* Wha–? *glances around* Oh. Will try not to be too sad. XD (Just kidding! So important to update these things when one can’t quite make it.) And thanks for letting us know! ^_^ LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!!

    My theory was that I’d have time to read it BEFORE NaNo and be all caught up. The thought of aaall the stuff I still have to do during November is terrifying but IT’S BEAUMONT AND BEASLEY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, so if I can make time for anything during NaNo, it’s that. XD

    (Also oh my word MARCH HARE. O_O)

    Good luck on getting everything finished!

      Thanks! LOL, so sorry for disrupting your NaNo schedule. XD I really, really wanted to do a Halloween release because that would have been so cool and convenient…but oh well. And yes, the March Hare! 😀 He plays into the story in a very interesting way. I’m really going heavy on the Wonderland elements this time around. The book will include origin stories for both the March Hare and the Mad Hatter.

    I never know when anything is releasing, so I didn’t even need the distraction… but now I do, because … oh wait… I haven’t read the second book, yet. But it’s on my birthday wish list!!! And… November 17th just happens to be my birthday, so… that means I could get both of the books on my birthday (well, or nearish my birthday) and it’s a date I will be able to remember!

    I totally understand not being able to hit certain deadlines. Sometimes it’s important to take a step back and make sure all the dragons are lined up in a row (or at least all in the same cave). On second thought, too many dragons in a single cave might not be a good idea… fights are liable to break out.

    I think I’m a bit scatterbrained this afternoon.

    I really just came over to say, “Best wishes with all the things and I am excited to read more about Beaumont and Beasley.”

      LOL, thanks! 😂 And believe it or not, you’re actually the second person who’s told me they’re excited about the Book 3 release because it’s on their birthday. Plus, I realized after setting the date that it’s also when Justice League premieres, so everybody will probably think there’s some hidden connection. 😆 (There isn’t.)

      And yes, I agree that it’s not good to keep too many dragons in a single cave. Good way to end up with a volcano. 😂
