I’m happy to report that I’ve been finding the time again to do some editing on The Gilded Empire. I’m also happy to report that the editing process is going very well.
I will not hit my initial deadline for the end of April, but I’m confident I can have it ready sometime during the month of May.
I’m really excited about this book because I feel it’s the best in the series so far. Empire of Chains started out as a pretty traditional fantasy. The Shadowed Land threw a few new wrinkles into that more traditional setup. The Gilded Empire takes the series in strange and unexpected directions, and it includes some of my favorite scenes in the entire series.
If you haven’t read Empire of Chains yet, I encourage you to give it a try. It’s only $0.99, or you can read it for free with Kindle Unlimited. I still expect to have the entire series released by the end of the summer, so it’s the perfect time to jump in.
I know I’ve been quiet around here lately. That’s because life has become very busy. It’s been a tough semester in my electrical engineering courses, so I haven’t been finding as much time to write (especially here on this blog).
Because of this, I’m going to have to push back my tentative deadline for The Gilded Empire. I had hoped to have it out by the end of April, but I’ve had very little time and energy to edit it recently. It’s in pretty good shape overall, but there are still a few rough sections, and I don’t want to publish it until I feel it’s ready.
That probably means a delay of a month or so. As I said, I’m pretty close. I just need a little more time.
After that, I still hope to have The Winds of Time edited and published by the end of July. Again, this is subject to change, and it doesn’t bother me too much if I’m a little behind my self-imposed deadlines. It may be tough with The Winds of Time because it’s the longest book in the series.
This is mostly me reassuring you, the reader, that I am still working on these projects. With only one summer course, I should be able to get The Gilded Empire into shape by the end of May.
My next two releases after I finish World in Chains will be the second and third books of my Sunweaver trilogy. Tentatively, I expect to release those by the end of October and January, respectively. After that, it will be The God War’s Chosen, most likely next spring. I’ve already written the first two books, and I’m writing the third at the moment.
After that, I have no idea what my path is. I have a lot of ideas vying for my attention.
