Just now, I finished my final draft of The Gilded Empire. I anticipate another week or so to do the final proofread, and then the saga of Nadia, Markus, Berig, Kara, and all the others will continue.
This book has a very special place in my heart. It’s the book where I really take the series to fun and unexpected places. The first two books seem like fairly straightforward epic fantasy reads. This one keeps the spirit of the first two, but introduces elements that make it much more complex and interesting.
After finishing the proofread, my next project will be editing The Winds of Time, the final book of World in Chains. If all goes well, I should have that out sometime this summer. Then I’ll turn my attention back to Sunweaver.
For now, though, I’m going to make that last push for The Gilded Empire. I hope you like reading it as much as I liked writing it.
