BRoP: Year in Review with A. W. Exley

We have come to the end of another great year. Together we have met some wonderful authors and my reading list has gotten bigger and bigger.

As 2013 comes to a close, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of the joys and triumphs of the year. To that end, we bring you the 2013 Blog Ring of Power Year in Review Giveaway Hop

We’ve teamed up with this past years’ BRoP interviewees to bring you 22 days of “year in review” guest posts and 20 fabulous giveaway prizes! Each day we'll share a new guest post on the year in review from a previous BRoP interviewee and you’ll have another opportunity to enter the giveaway—so get hopping! And be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of this post!

A. W. Exley

A few things have happened since I last appeared on the Blog Ring of Power. I had two short stories published in anthologies where 10% of proceeds are being donated to no-kill shelters. They were a bit of a departure for me as I ventured out of my steampunk world and created my own gargoyle mythology. The two stories share the same world and mythology but have two different sets of characters. One story is GOTHIC GWEN a YA paranormal story in CQ Prime Time. The other story is THE QUARRY, which is definitely an adult story in CQ After Dark. There is the potential for either to become a full length novel as the stories are open ended, I just need to find the time!

Since certain characters in my head wouldn't be quiet NEFERTITI'S HEART became a series called The Artifact Hunters. Book 2, HATSHEPSUT'S COLLAR was released on November 15. Do you know how many times I stared at my cover of Hatshepsut's Collar before I realized we had spelled Hatshepsut wrong? Let me tell you, it was a lot! lol Having given my cover artist an anxiety complex I have agreed all future books will have titles of only 2 syllables or less ;)  I'm currently writing book 3, called NERO's FIDDLE.

I also have a YA steampunk novel that needs a light going over before it's ready for release. So things are very busy in Middle Earth. Plus Xmas is just around the corner, which happens in the middle of summer for us and that's normally my time of year to relax in the shade with a stack of books.
