The Stroke of Eleven–Now Available!

All right, you can officially stop guilt-tripping me about the release date delays. XD It's here!

The Stroke of Eleven, the highly-anticipated third book in the Beaumont and Beasley series, is now available on Kindle! (A paperback version will be released on Amazon later today, and the book will be coming to other ebook markets soon.)

It's hard for me to talk about The Stroke of Eleven without getting spoilery, so I'll resist the urge to drop a lot of teasers. I will say that there are a bunch of surprises, and that this book changes the entire status quo of the series moving forward. I've spoken before about there being six books in “Beaumont and Beasley Season One,” but actually, after finishing Book 3, I feel that it works as a “season finale.” So in a way, this release completes a trilogy, though it doesn't actually bring most of the major storylines to an end. I'll be delving deeper into those next year. I'm actually considering a new format for future books, but I'm not quite ready for an official announcement on that front yet. Stay tuned for more details.

I hope you enjoy The Stroke of Eleven! If so, the book's Goodreads page is ready for reviews. I'd really appreciate your feedback.

Happy reading! Watch the site for more news in the coming weeks. I'll be catching up on all the blog comments and social media stuff I've neglected because of the book launch over the next couple days.

Come on, you, type those replies faster! (She says while dealing with two sick children and attempting to re-work her disaster of NaNo…)

I’ll be checking out the GR page in a mo here. Hope everybody else you know can start reading asap! šŸ™‚

Awww, they’re sick again? I’m so sorry!! Praying for the whole family. And thanks so much!

Thank you! Yeah, Muffin is about over whatever he had (mostly sniffles and a cough, but eventually his temperature spiked – thankfully nothing we couldn’t control with rest and a little tylendol!). But poor White Fang has been struggling all week, and his voice totally gave out yesterday.

Aw, I’m so sorry! Hope he’s feeling better!

Yes, they both are now!

Awesome! šŸ˜Š

[…] The Stroke of Eleven by Kyle Robert Shultz, which is the third Beaumont and Beasley book, came out today and I’m ridiculously excited for more Nick and Crispin and Cordelia and fairytale humor. I CAN’T WAIT. ā¤ […]

AAAHH YAY! The excitement is real over here. šŸ˜€ *does a dance* I’m so excited for this one, and DID I MENTION I LOVE THE COVER?? Because I love the cover. šŸ˜€ Congrats on the new release! *applause and confetti and cupcakes for the hard-working author* I can’t wait to read it! ^_^

*scarfs down cupcakes* XD Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy it! šŸ˜€

By the way, I can definitely understand your “season finale” feeling, and support whatever changes to initial release/publishing/plotting ideas/notions/plans this may result in.

Readers don’t always realize that we writers are only human, subject to the whims of fancy and the tides of time. (Or, that our lives get busy, too, and we can look back at an idea we had a year ago and say, “WHAT THE HECK WAS I THINKING?!”)

LOL, yes! That’s exactly how I feel. I’m slowly learning that once I actually get into writing a story, stuff always happens that I hadn’t planned initially, hence all these changes over the past couple months. But I think I actually have a pretty good scheme in place for the future now. (He said, little knowing what the future might hold.) XD

And BTW, given our previous conversations about her, there are some developments with Molly in this book that I think you and White Fang may find intriguing… šŸ˜€ Also, it’s VERY Doctor-Who-ish. So much timey-wimey-ness. XD

Yes, I think more about Molly (whether it’s good, bad, or just information) would be very interesting!

Whoops, I somehow didn’t see this comment when you posted it. Yeah, this book goes further into the aftermath of everything that happened to her in The Tomb of the Sea Witch, and also teases some stuff about her future. šŸ˜€
