I’m in the final stages of editing Dusk Gate at this point, then I’m going to be sending it to my editor. I’m really hoping to have it out before the end of the month, but at present, the pre-order is set for November 2nd. The link to the Amazon pre-order is below!
Dusk Gate somewhat fascinates me due to the nature of Xandra, who is if not the main character, she’s one of the main characters. She’s sarcastic, short-tempered, and generally doesn’t filter her responses by what’s polite. As one of my friends put it, “She’s like an overworked retail employee that just doesn’t care anymore.” I think it’s a pretty accurate description of her, but I don’t intend to leave her like that.
That said, I think that this series is going to be a little different than most of my books. Darker in some ways, but with plenty of light here and there. I’m not entirely sure how it’ll end up, but it’s certainly going to be different. What intrigues me the most is that it’s possible that she and the characters in the book could cross paths with Ruethwyn and the other characters of Through the Fire.
We’ll have to see where things end up, though. For now, I’m going to be working on Queen’s Journey once I’ve finished with Dusk Gate.
Edit: So everyone is aware, Amazon seems to be having some problems on the back end at the moment. The pre-order took over a week to go up (usually it takes a couple of hours), and it doesn’t have a page on all of their stores (.de, .au, and others. It’d be faster to share which ones it is on). I contacted them on Sunday, and they’re looking into the problem, but I can’t guarantee when it’ll be available. Just wanted to let you know.

Well, I’m looking forward to it. Checked this evening and saw it was available for preorder, so you’ve got one sale at least. Now I just need to stop looking pitifully at my screen wondering why it’s not here yet.
Glad you’re looking forward to it! Tomorrow I should finish editing it, then I’ll send it off to my editor, so it’ll get out in due time!
Alas, I’m now running into issues with Amazon, where the pre-order isn’t available in ten out of the thirteen Amazon storefronts. I’ve opened an inquiry with them, but who knows what’ll happen there?
I look forward to people seeing the book, though! Xandra is… very, very odd. I have no idea where she came from where my imagination is concerned.
The preorder is not up on amazon.de (I could preorder too in the past).
I am looking forward to it!
Unfortunately, the only stores it’s currently live on is .com, .co.uk, and .nl. I’ve contacted Amazon and they’re looking into it. Hopefully it’ll be up soon!
Are you going to continue through the fire? I enjoyed those books and wondered if you are going to make another.
I am! Currently it’s a little behind Lilith’s Shadow in the schedule, and Dusk Gate is set in the same world, and around the same time, so I may need to finish it first, but I’ve got at least a trilogy planned for Through the Fire’s second story arc.
