Update on SEA KING


As some of you may be aware, I have been dealing with a number of personal and health-related issues over the last year that have delayed the completion of my next book, THE SEA KING, my second Weathermages of Mystral novel. I hope to have a completed manuscript by the end of this month. I do not currently have a publication date for the book, but will post the news to my website, FB, and twitter as soon as I do.

To all my readers who have been patiently waiting for this book, thank you so much for your continued support and patience. I appreciate it more than I can say. In addition to THE SEA KING, I have plotted and begun work on two other Mystral novels, to complete the Seasons of Summerlea trilogy. More news on those later.  They are still in very early stages.

For those of you who have been waiting so patiently for my next Fading Lands novel (Bel’s book), rest assured, I am continuing to work on it and other Fading Lands stories.  I hope to bring them to you as soon as I possibly can.

Please check back for updates.

UPDATE (February 2017).  I finished the SEA KING manuscript  and am waiting on a publication date from my publisher.  Will announce the new date when I have it.

I’ve recently discovered your books and am currently in love with them! Sharing them to everyone I know, even if most of them find the covers cheesy. Ha. I hope you’re feeling better. I’ve just finished The Winter King literally just now and I can’t can’t can’t wait for the sequel. I need more Keiran in my life too., so I hope for more Tairen Soul books to come as well.

Patiently waiting (from the Philippines),

Dear Ms. Wilson,
I have thoroughly enjoyed all your books especially Tairen Soul series as well as The Winter King. You have an amazing ability to pull the reader into the books and live every emotionof the characters. Someday (hopefully soon) i hope to write a novel and my inspiration is you, truly.
May i ask when we can expect The Sea King? Also waiting for all other Fading land stories that you are yet to publish.

You have my best wishes that your health issues will be resolved. I check every so often on several authors with delayed books on the way, and I’m always just glad to hear they’re still on the way! And I’m delighted to know Bel’s book is in the works, I’m rereading the Tairen Soul novels this week and wondered if there would be more. So while I am looking forward to reading anything you print, I hope you know your fans value your health more than a speedy publication date, and thanks for letting us know your long-term plans.

Hi Linda, I was working on Bel’s book when my publisher said they wanted SEA KING instead, so I switched gears and started working on that instead. I’m currently working to finish SEA KING, then it’s back to work on Bel’s book plus a couple of shorter works that I’ve been puttering with for a while.

Sherry, SEA KING has not been published. As I stated in my “Update on Sea King” blog, I’ve been dealing with personal and health issues that have taken me away from writing for a while. I am still working on it and do hope to have it finished soon. As soon as I do, I’ll announce it everywhere I can, including all my social media outlets and here on my website. Thanks!

I’m so sorry to hear that you are having health problems. I’m waiting patiently for all of the new books you are working on. I fell in love with your writing with the first Fading Lands book and own all of the books in Rain and Ellysetta’s story as well as The Winter King. I’ll continue to keep an eye out for upcoming books from you. In the meantime, I will be praying that your health improves and that you grow stronger each day.
