As I said this last week, Queen’s Journey is finished, and now that I’ve received feedback from several of my Alpha readers I’ll be starting on my second editing pass tomorrow. I fully expect that to take much of the week, and into next week. With it at this stage, I contacted the editor I’m using, and with the schedule they have, I’ve moved the release date to February 1st, 2021. I look forward to sharing it with everyone!
In other news, the new story, Chosen of Chaos, has proven to be one of the most riveting ones I’ve written since Ancient Ruins. I’ve written almost 60,000 words on it since November 30th, when I started the story, and it’s going strong. I fully expect this one to be done relatively soon, but I’m debating what I want to do with it. I have toyed with the idea of trying to get a traditional publisher, but I’m not sure about it. I’m going to take some time and figure out what I want to do.
Now, Dusk Gate‘s audiobook has started going up on other distributors (Google Play, Chirp, Scribd, Kobo/Walmart, and Audiobooks.com as of yesterday), and Audible has started moving it to live as well, but with how long it took Hives & Heroism, that could be another month for all I know. However, the audiobook of the Mantles of Power omnibus is live, so there’s that much at least! Here’s the link: https://www.audible.com/pd/B08QW7W1LD/?source_code=AUDFPWS0223189MWT-BK-ACX0-227822&ref=acx_bty_BK_ACX0_227822_rh_us
And as a final bit of news, on Friday, Christmas Day, I’m going to be putting a short story I wrote back this summer up on the website, a follow-up to Marin’s Codex. It isn’t terribly cheery in nature, but it does describe some of what happens afterward… and appropriately, it’s named Emonael’s Vengeance.
That’s it for this week! I hope everyone has a wonderful week, and stays safe.
