My Alpha readers aren’t all done with Crisis of Faith, but enough of them are (and liked it!) that I decided to put up the pre-order, which is set for November 4th. One thing I’d like to note, I’m giving a slight discount on the book for the first week of its pre-order, and it’ll increase in price after that. Not by much, mind you, but it’s worth noting!
Also, as the question has come up a few times, Crisis of Faith is set approximately four months after the end of Halls of Power, so a little has changed, but not an immense amount. The events of the previous trilogy are extremely fresh in their minds, but at the same time, this story introduces new enemies, and isn’t focused primarily on Sistina, though she plays a major role in it.
With that out of the way, I’m also working on Webs & Wards while I wait for feedback, and it’s coming along well. I haven’t started (resumed?) working on Queen’s Move yet, as I want to do that after finishing my edit of Crisis of Faith. Add to that my upcoming birthday in the beginning of October, plus my wife is making good on her threat to drag me off on a vacation where I don’t just end up writing, and I don’t expect to get fully into Queen’s Move until mid-October.
Still, lots of progress is being made on multiple fronts! If, and this is a very big if, I can keep up my current pace, and if an editing date drops open for me like last time around, you very well could see Webs & Wards before the end of the year. Joy is just wonderful to write about.
