Progress report

If you’re curious about the status of what I’m working on, what’s happening with publishing deals, and anything else I think of at the time, then sign up for my newsletter here: Newsletter  I’ll be sending them out every few months, and there’s usually also information on a new release or a discount deal from another author included!

As it has been a year and seven months since A Shattered Empire was released, and seven months since Revenant Winds was published, I thought it would be a good idea to outline what I’ve been up to and what that means for future publications.

A couple of decisions added complications, but overall they’re good complications! I have a few irons in the fire, so here’s a breakdown:

47North series

Shadow of the Exile (book 1) – October/November(?) 2018 release, not finalised but the time frame is firm
Dawn of the Exile (book 2) – April/May 2019 release

Will 47North want more installments in the series? It will depend on sales.

The Tainted Cabal series

Revenant Winds book 2 – my best guess is early-mid 2019. My two books for 47North put this project on the back burner, and working on this is next on my list.

The Necromancer’s Key hexalogy

Shadow in the Flame (book 1), is complete, as are outlines of all six books. Book 2 in the series is almost half written. With this project I have a few options, but at this stage I’ve focused on getting the manuscript in great shape. I expect I’ll be able to tell you more about what’s happening in a few months.

Raven series

Raven: Reawakening (book 1), is complete. Again, I’m focusing on getting the manuscript in great shape.

It might look like I’m all over the place, but there is method to my madness! As with any business, I had to look to the future and decide what would be best for my career as an author. So I decided that while I’m working on my unexpected 47North series, I would do all I could to get two new series in good enough shape to pitch to agents/publishers, if I decided to take that route — hence The Necromancer’s Key hexalogy and Raven series.

I can’t put a time yet on when the first books in these series will be released, as it depends on many factors. But I can say that although my novel release rate has been a little slow over the last few years, with three completed and two half completed manuscripts currently, my publication rate will significantly increase in the following few years. And I’m very happy about that!
