Emigrating is no Joke

(TLDR: emigrating is time-consuming and tiring, book 9 within the next two weeks.)

Hey,

As some of you who follow me on Twitter etc probably know, we moved 5000 miles to the Netherlands this month. I was expecting, because I’m an idiot apparently, that I would get here and just be able to get to work asap.¬† Instead it’s been a roller-coaster ride of discovering things about how my new country works, finding a permanent place to live, dealing with the ongoing back injury, and doing lots of appointments and paperwork for immigration.

So suddenly it is the end of July and book 9 still needs some final edits and a final copyedit (which is not done by me, but my usual peeps are pretty quick so that shouldn’t delay too much once I get done with my part), then the final final read-through, the formatting, the uploading, and then hopefully into your hands! (or Kindle, or phone, or whatever you wanna read on, I don’t judge).

I know everyone is tired of waiting, sorry. But give me like a week to two weeks (two weeks to be safe) and book 9 will be here. Book 10 also just needs a few more chapters, some edits, copyedits, final final read, etc, so I’m still planning to have book 10 out within about 3-4 weeks of book 9’s release, but obviously at the moment my total focus is on book 9 cause you gotta read that one first because I know none of you are those monsters who read series out of order, right?

Thank you all for your epic patience with my habit of thinking that I’ll magically be able to do more than I’m capable of ūüôā¬† It is my hope that this move will enable me in the longer term to be healthier, happier, figure out this stupid mysterious back injury that has stumped multiple doctors and physical therapists, and generally be able to write like the wind, because I have a ton of kickass ideas I’ve been developing while injured and I really want to share ALL of them with you peeps.

Hope your summer is going well.

Spring 2017 Update

Here’s a quickie update on what’s hopefully happening this year.

Next book out will be Tribes: Harper’s Tale. I should have it out by end of April or early May, depending on editing time etc.

After that will come Brood Mother (the 5th Gryphonpike Chronicles novella) and then a side novel titled Soft Paw which goes between 20sided books 8 and 9.  There will be one more Gryphonpike Chronicles novella which will wrap up that iteration of the series (a trilogy of novels will come in 2018, beginning Gryphonpike Legends). All of that should carry us well into summer with new releases fairly regularly.

Beyond that, my goal this year is to wrap up The Twenty-Sided Sorceress. There will be two more books, books 9¬†and 10. They are very tied together in terms of what happens with the story, so I will likely delay the release of book 9¬†until the fall when I can release book 10 within a month or so of book 9. I don’t want to leave readers on a cliff with a big wait (again, mwahahahaha*cries*).

Ending a series I love so much will be rough, but I have plans for the world beyond that which I’m really excited to explore. There will also be an epilogue for 20sided that will be the prequel of the series to come in the same world.

So I have a ton of plans this year. Health-wise I’m doing much better than I have in three years, so hopefully no derails due to health like in years past. I’m also hoping that after wrapping up 20sided I’ll have a few months to work on the sequel to Avarice and get the Pyrrh books out in the world finally.

So… TLDR is lots of fiction coming for you all in 2017 and I’m excited to be healthier and working regularly again! Cheers.
