So, if you haven’t seen the announcement on Facebook or Tumblr yet, I’ve finally finished the rough draft of Volume 4! I cannot overstate my appreciation for everyone who still cares. The last five years have been pretty rough for me. To everyone who’s posted comments and sent messages reminding me how much you love Thalia’s Musings and how much you’re looking forward to Volume 4, thank you so much for giving the encouragement I needed to finish this project.
Now, the draft I have right now is a very rough one. It needs a good rewrite before I can even show it to my beta readers, and then it’ll need another rewrite with their notes. So I can’t give you an exact timeline just yet, especially since I’m back in school. But I do feel comfortable saying it will be posted in 2020. I’ll keep y’all updated on a release timeline, title reveal, cover reveal, and all that good stuff.
Thank you so much for sticking around. I hope I’ll make it worth your while.
Boy, am I on top of things this year. I made an announcement to my Facebook page on New Year’s Eve, posted it to Twitter on New Year’s Day, and just now remembered I haven’t blogged about it. So here it is:
There is a decent chance 2018 will see Thalia’s Musings 4.
Because I finished one of the other books I’ve been working on.
Well, finished the rough draft. Still have to finish the rewrite, send it to beta readers, do the next rewrite, all that stuff. But I finished the rough draft! And I’ll be seeking representation for it in the next few months! It’s a young adult classic fantasy with a diverse female-led cast.
Looking forward to sharing more updates about the new book and Thalia’s Musings in the new year!
Snarled Threads (Thalia’s Musings, Volume Two) will be available as a DRM-free ebook for Kindle and NOOK on Wednesday, 12/12/12.
In the meantime, if you haven’t gotten A Snag in the Tapestry for Kindle or NOOK yet, check out the new “Shop” page, and keep an eye on it for further updates as more Thalia’s Musings works become available for purchase.
In what is UNDOUBTEDLY the biggest news story to hit the internet today, I can now give you an official release date for the very first Thalia’s Musings ebook. A Snag in the Tapestry will be coming to Amazon.com and BarnesAndNoble.com on…wait for it…

For my non-American readers, Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is when American retailers start the Christmas shopping season in full force. It is a day of overhyped sales, shopping riots, and pure unabashed commercialism. It is something no sane, rational human being would ever voluntarily participate in. And I finally get to be a part of it. >:-D
Alas, this obviously is not the Hades chapter. That’s on my flash drive with my beta reader’s notes, awaiting a final edit. In the meantime I thought I’d catch you up on what’s going on with the site and the series.
Due to health issues, I haven’t been able to do nearly as much writing this fall as I thought I would. So the release of Volume 2 is being pushed back to spring 2012. I will post the Hades chapter, but that’ll be the last of the bonus content. After it’s posted, this site will go on complete hiatus while I finish drafting Volume 2. I’m about a third of the way into Volume 2 right now.
I’ve gotten some questions about fan art. I’d be happy to post it on the site if people wants to submit it. Email fan art or anything else to me at amethyst[dot]marie[dot]writes[at]gmail[dot]com.
And now for an announcement I’m very excited to make…
…The first volume of Thalia’s Musings, A Snag in the Tapestry, is coming to Kindle and Nook stores in summer 2012!
May whatever holidays you’re celebrating this season be happy. See you in the spring. 🙂
