Sorry for the relative radio silence – I’m trying to focus all my efforts on getting work done. Here are some quick updates, though.
Audio Book for On the Shoulders of Titans – To the best of my knowledge, this is being recorded next month. I do not have a release date, but my hope is that if it’s recorded next month, it might be out by the end of the year. This depends on how long it takes for the narrator to record it and how long it takes for the production team to finish any necessary sound editing, etc.
Manuscript Updates – I’ve made some minor edits to On the Shoulders of Titans to fix some small continuity issues that readers have pointed out (e.g. Derek being referenced in a scene where he wasn’t present and some clarification on the follow up for Vellum and Corin’s patent application). These are very minor edits, but continuity is important to me, so I’m going to continue making changes like these if other mistakes are found in my books in the future.
Upcoming Books – Defying Destiny is still going slower than I’d like, but I’ve made some progress. I got one particularly challenging scene out of the way last night, and I’m hoping that I’ll be able to make a combo out of that and continue to make good progress. In days when I’m really struggling with it, I’ve been switching over to working on Six Sacred Swords, which has been a helpful way to get more writing done and retain my creative focus. As such, I’ve already made a good chunk of progress on Six Sacred Swords, and I expect that book to go much more smoothly than this one. My hope is to get both of those books out next year (early in the case of Defying Destiny, mid to late in the case of Six Sacred Swords), then get to work on Arcane Ascension Book 3. That’s going to take a lot longer – the Arcane Ascension books are *long* – but I’m still hoping to have Book 3 done before the end of 2020.
Thanks for everyone’s patience and interest. I’ll post more details when I’m closer to a release for Defying Destiny.
