I’m writing now to let you guys know what to look out for. I have a few things on the horizon for the next few months. Here are a few of them.
I was nominated for an Indie RECon award for “Most Heartbreaking Ending” for Olympia Heights: The Cult of Kronos. You can vote daily, so please do!

The first thing is a website relaunch. I wanted to talk about it now because I have other important things to announce at the redesign reveal. I know I changed the look of the site about eight months ago, but I need to do it again. You see, I was lured into this theme by pretty animated graphics, but it’s slow and clunky and not very responsive. I’ve found a new theme that I’m adapting to hopefully be how this site looks for the next few years. I’ll be getting together with Carly Strickland to shoot some images for it this Wednesday and in the next few weeks I’ll be getting everything together to hopefully relaunch around the end of the month.
The Heroes Launch
I’m launching a street team website when I launch the new amyleighstrickland.com. It’ll be explained thoroughly in a video I’ve already shot. Be patient. There will be swag.
At the end of September I’ll be appearing in Sheffield, AL at a con called “Geek Gathering.”
Early October will come with the launch of the Kickstarter for Lightning Rod, the first Olympia Heights comic. I’ll be doing events around that, including a Google Hangout on launch day. If you want to get an email when it launches, sign up at www.olympia-heights.com/comic
A local group is organizing a con in Montevallo, AL in October. I’ll be there with the family at our company’s table as it’s right now the road from my house.
CONjuration is a Harry Potter convention organized by fans in Atalanta. I’ve just been accepted as a guest (yesterday) and will spend Halloween weekend there. I’ll be on panels and selling my books.
November brings NaNoWriMo and a new project. This project has no title yet, but it will be a NA serial set in Arkham, Mass. I’ve been reading a lot of HP Lovecraft.
Royer Goldhawk 2
I’ve been editing the sequel to Rescue, OR Royer Goldhawk’s Remarkable Journal for a late fall release. Expect a cover reveal some time during NaNoWriMo.
So keep your eyes peeled for big changes and big announcements. Thanks for checking in!
