Update on THE SEA KING

As those of you who’ve been following me on Facebook know, I’ve been hard at work on THE SEA KING, the second of my Mystral series. It’s extremely important to me that whatever book I put out is the best I can possibly make it, and despite my best efforts, I haven’t been able to do justice to this story and still make the deadline for an August publication date. Therefore, after a great deal of soul searching, my editor, agent and I have all agreed to pull THE SEA KING from the 2015 schedule so I can concentrate on making this book the best it can be. Our plan is to release both THE SEA KING, and Spring’s book (tentatively titled THE DESERT KING) close together, hopefully next year.

For those of you who have been waiting so patiently for my next Fading Lands book (Bel’s book), rest assured, I am continuing to work on it and will bring it to you as soon as I possibly can. I was hoping to have it out next year, but due to this delay, my publisher insists that I concentrate on the Mystral books at this time.

For everyone who has preordered THE SEA KING, I am so sincerely grateful for your support, and I hope you will be willing to wait on the story a little while longer. I can only keep publishing because there are wonderful readers like you willing to buy the books I write.

What I'm Working On Now

I’m currently working on a second Weathermages of Mystral novel. THE SEA KING. Like THE WINTER KING, THE SEA KING will be a standalone fantasy romance, and it will feature characters who made their appearance in the first book. I love when characters show up on a page and make me fall so in love with them I need to write their story!

In addition to the SEA KING, anyone who has been following me on Facebook knows I started Bel’s book for 2013’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I had high hopes of actually winning NaNo for the first time ever (by writing 50,000 words on Bel’s story), but I had to pull out of the contest to finish up my work on Upon a Midnight, my novella contribution to ONE ENCHANTED SEASON. The good news, I will go back to working on Bel’s book once THE SEA KING is turned in.

As always, beylah vo, my friends, for your patience and your support. Miora felah!
