What I’m Working On

Thank you so much to everyone who has been waiting so patiently for my next book.  I apologize for no new books in so long.

I currently have several stories in progress.

  • THE JAGUAR KING – Book 3 of the Weathermages of Mystral series. I’ve received quite a lot of mail asking for an update on this. I wrote 500 pages on this but wasn’t happy with them. So I’ve gone back to the drawing board to see what I can salvage, what needs to be rewritten, and what needs to be tossed.  And to am trying to plot the book in such a way as to feed into the last Season’s book (Autumn’s book) to conclude the quartet of Mystral books.
  • Bel’s books – Fading Lands novel starring Belliard vel Jelani. I actually started it a few years ago and was going gangbusters but had to switch over to THE SEA KING. Frustration and delays ensued, as you all know. But I’m continuing to work on Bel’s story.  This is the next big Fading Lands story I intend to tackle.
  • Untitled Fading Lands novel featuring the Sief of the Pale (the icy land north of the Feyls). This will either be a novella or a full length book. Not sure yet. The way I’m planning it now, it will be set after MELLIANDRA and before Bel’s book.

I am now trying to write every day again, while trying hard to avoid my perfection/procrastination tendencies that always sabotage me and my ADD brain.  I really, really appreciate your patience.  As I’ve said before, every book I complete is a battle I win against my brain, which constantly works to distract and derail me.

Thanks so much for your understanding.
