A delightful update!

Great news!  The amazing Selkie, who editing the first two books, has agreed to edit BB3!  This is really great because not only does Selkie clean up my word splatter style of writing, but also helps me clear up and improve scenes.  Both of the first two books were better thanks to Selkie’s input, and I am thrilled to have help with the final one.

I also want to thank all the readers, especially those who posted here, wrote reviews and sent me emails.  Your passion for the story helped motivate me to keep writing, and I am putting this last book out as a gift to all of you!

I am confident I will meet the Valentine’s Day deadline, and if I can make it work, I will also make the book available for pre-order this week.  Haven’t done that before, so I can’t promise, but I am looking into it!

With bloodshot eyes…

… and aching fingers, I write to tell you that the first draft is done!

It was a monumental weekend of writing, and I wasn’t sure I was going to make it, but at last it is complete.  Now. to sleep and hope the editor elves magically clean up the manuscript while I rest.

Friday!  Update time!  As I have received a couple requests for updates, here you go!  I expect to finish the first draft this weekend.  I have cleared the decks, so I can spend the next three days focused on writing, and barring something unforeseen– or the story going crazy on me somehow—  I believe I will have the draft done.  Then, a week editing, and maybe– just MAYBE– it will be out sometime in early February.  As promised, I will post when the draft is done, and I will also alert you when the material has been uploaded to Amazon.

I thank everyone for your patience and interest.

I am getting lots of questions about Maxis and Progenita.  My original plan was for the third book to include a clarification of the gods and their roles in the world.  The way things have gone, I am not sure that will happen.  However, if it doesn’t fit into the story, I will post something here, though I want to emphasize what will be revealed will be a “grounds eye view” meaning that it will be knowledge that becomes available to the people of The Shattered isles and not authorial revelations.  Why?  Well, I feel that it is good to keep a little mystery about things!  I do think people will be largely satisfied, if not pleased at the revelations to come.

Many questions will be answered.  Who ends up as King of The Shattered Isles?  How do things end between Serren and Pattenia?  Will Maxis or Progenita rule? What will the third age in The Shattered Isles look like?  All will be answered!
