Hello everyone, and I hope you’re having a good October so far.
I’ve spent most of the last month working on edits to Book 3 of Arcane Ascension. It’s out with my Alpha readers – the very first people who get a look at it – and I’ll be sending out the next revision to Beta readers shortly. After that, I’ll parse through the beta feedback and get to the professional editing stage in time for a release in December. It’s going to be difficult to get everything done in that time frame, but I don’t plan to delay the launch.
Speaking of launches, Will Wight’s Wintersteel is out today. If you’re not already following the Cradle series, it’s one of my own personal favorites, and I highly recommend it if you’re in the mood for some martial arts fantasy.
If you missed the previous updates, we have a release date for AA3 – December 6th – and the book is up for preorder. The book also finally has a title – The Torch that Ignites the Stars.
We’re also less than a month out from the Kindle release of How to Defeat a Demon King in Ten Easy Steps.
In terms of other things I’ve been working on, my next book release is going to be the third Weapons & Wielders book – Soulbrand. I’m a long way into that, but I barely touched it last month: edits have simply been taking up too much of my time.
I have several other projects slated for the next year or two that I’ve already started on in small ways. Arcane Ascension 4 is already in the planning stages, and I’ve written the first scene of it. (For those of you who don’t know already, Arcane Ascension isn’t a trilogy; it was planned for 6-7 books, although I may still end it on a different number, depending on what it takes for the story to feel complete.)
I’ve also been continuing to work on planning for Wrynn Jaden’s novel: Carefully Worded Wishes. I think a lot of people are going to enjoy this one.
I have a few other projects I’ve been dabbling with, including a LitRPG parody and a couple different xianxia-style novel experiments. I’m not sure when any of those will see the light of day.
I’m hoping to get back into blogging a little more frequently and posting things with more substance, such as preview chapters and deleted content, but we’ll have to see if time permits.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a great October!
