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.
