Hey everyone,

Last week, I received the final version of the map of Kaldwyn, the continent where Sufficiently Advanced Magic takes place.

I’m planning to include this map in either a revised version of Sufficiently Advanced Magic, the sequel, or both – I’m not sure just yet. But in the meantime, you can take a look right here!

The map was drawn by Karl Vesterberg from traditionalmaps.com, and I was very pleased with the results.

Hello everyone,

Just a quick status update for those of you who aren’t on my mailing list yet.

I’m about 35% of the way into the sequel to Sufficiently Advanced Magic (roughly 70,000 words). It slowed down a little bit because I decided to cut out a portion of content that I felt was too early in the story, which also required spending some time making adjustments to other parts of the book to keep it consistent. I may end up re-inserting some or all of that cut content later, but I’m not sure.

I’m also about 20,000 words into Defying Destiny, the third book in the War of Broken Mirrors.

Finally, I’ve been dabbling with some other side stories as the mood strikes me, such as a spin-off for Keras and a few ideas for more traditional “LitRPG” style stories. I’m not sure if these other stories will end up going all the way to publication or not – time will tell.

I’m still targeting early 2018 for the sequel to Sufficiently Advanced Magic. Defying Destiny will most likely end up coming after that at this rate, given how much I’ve switched my focus. I still intend to continue working on Defying Destiny gradually, however, so hopefully it will be quick to finish after the next sequel.

After that, it’s going to be a bit trickier – there are parts in the third Arcane Ascension book that were going to be tied into the fourth (and most likely final) War of Broken Mirrors book, so I might end up doing two War of Broken Mirrors books back-to-back. It’s still too soon to say for certain.

Hello everyone!

I’m proud to announce that Sufficiently Advanced Magic is finally available in audio format, narrated by the amazing Nick Podehl.

For those of you who are interested in status updates, here’s some new information!

  • The sequel to Sufficiently Advanced Magic is about 25% written, at about 50,000 words so far. That’s close to half the length of Forging Divinity, so it’s going to be another big one.
  • The third book of the War of Broken Mirrors series is also in progress, at about 15,000 words. This has been a tougher story for me to write, but I’m making gradual progress.
  • I also have some side projects in progress, such as a more “trapped in a MMORPG’ style novel and a Sufficiently Advanced Magic prequel from Keras Selyrian’s perspective.

I’ll be updating my mailing list shortly with some preview content, so if you’re on the mailing list, stay tuned!

Hey all,
 
If you haven’t picked up Sufficiently Advanced Magic yet, the Kindle edition is on sale for 99 cents in the US kindle store.
 

Hey all,

Some quick updates about book status.

Defying Destiny has been going slower than planned for a number of reasons. Some of them have been general practical things, like moving to a new apartment and my video card dying.

The main one is really that I’m getting a lot more interest and encouragement to write the sequel for Sufficiently Advanced Magic, and that book is also fresher in my mind.

Going forward, I’m going to be splitting my time between writing both books. This will definitely delay Defying Destiny further, but I’ve found that I get a higher amount of total writing done each day this way, since I can switch between books when I’m in the right mood to work on one or the other.

I’m still hoping to get Defying Destiny out this year if possible, but I may actually get the sequel to Sufficiently Advanced Magic done first. Not sure yet.

 

Aside from that, I’d like to give a quick book recommendation: Valley of Embers by Steven Kelliher.

Valley of Embers (The Landkist Saga Book 1) by [Kelliher, Steven]

It’s another anime-inspired fantasy novel, and it’s currently *free* on Amazon. Stylistically, I’d compare it to something along the lines of Avatar: The Last Airbender crossed with the corrupted animals from Princess Mononoke.

You can find it here, and if you’ve already read it, the sequel is currently on sale for 99 cents.

I suspect most of you have already checked out Sufficiently Advanced Magic, but if you haven’t, you can pick up a free preview over on InstaFreebie here.

Hey all!

At long last, I’ve created a mailing list. People have been asking about this for ages, and I wish I’d made one sooner, but I’m glad to finally have one to work with.

If you’re interested in getting direct e-mail updates about the status of my books, as well as some unique snippets of lore, short stories, and whatever else I’m feeling like throwing in there, you can sign up for my mailing list here.

Hey all!

The paperback version of Sufficiently Advanced Magic is now available!
You can find it here:
For those of you waiting on the audio book edition, that’s still in progress and I’m looking at roughly a July release.
As for the sequel, I’ve done a very early draft of the outline and about 10,000 words of pre-writing.
I’m currently still planning to finish Defying Destiny first, but there’s a possibility that I might swap to spending more time on the sequel to Sufficiently Advanced Magic due to the sheer amount of interest it’s been getting. I don’t want to leave my Broken Mirrors fans in the dust, though, so I’m definitely going to keep working on that regardless – I might just end up moving over to more of a 50/50 split in my time.
It’ll depend on what kind of writing pattern keeps me the most productive.

There’s a half-month check in post for people who are reading Sufficiently Advanced Magic and interested in discussing it with other readers!

More detailed discussions will be at the end of the month.

Also, there’s this gem from /u/HiuGregg, who is doing parody covers for all the Reading Resident Authors novels.

It’s…perfect.
