I tried to write the short story idea to introduce people to Through the Fire this past week, and it was easy enough… and then I realized it was a better prologue than what I had in mind. So I incorporated it into book 1 of Through the Fire, titled The Avatar’s Flames. I’m kind of bemused, because I intended not to get into the series until I got back from the convention at the end of the month, but it appears that isn’t going to happen. I have about 6500 words written on the book, and intend to get going on it for real this week. I don’t have any estimate on when I’ll release The Avatar’s Flames yet, but I’ll let everyone know when I do.
In other news, I’ve received word that recording of the audiobook of Down with the Queen is complete and it’s currently waiting on both an editor and proof-listener to go through it. I expect it to be complete this week, at which point I’ll have to wait for Audible to approve it. I expect it out this month, but it could be close.
I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m going out of town this month, to a convention called PaizoCon in Seattle over memorial day weekend. I’m hoping to attend a number of interesting panels and the like, and maybe to get a slot where I can try their upcoming playtest of Pathfinder 2nd Edition.
I hope everyone is doing well, and I very much hope that I can get The Avatar’s Flames out sooner than later.
