Hey just a fast announcement here. Yoly over at Cormar Covers made a new cover for me for The First Quartet, and I just uploaded it to Amazon and Smashwords. I will get it on the other stores soon. Here it is:
Did you get an email from Amazon saying there was an update to Enemy of an Enemy? Read on to find out why.
This morning I was surprised to wake up and find an email from Amazon saying that there was an updated version of my book ready for download (I buy my own books so that see things like this). To be clear, I did ask them to do this, but they told me it would go out in four weeks, instead of barely twenty-four hours.
I wanted to give everyone a fast update on Volume IV of the Lost Tales of Power series, so here it comes! I would say that ninety percent of the editing is done! I am just struggling with one key part right now, which I sent back to my editor for more work.
The writing of Volume V is well under way. I have plenty of new characters and problems for our heroes to deal with and a certain large, orange cat comes back as a main character. Finally, the leverage that Grandmaster Vydor has over him will be revealed. Small bit of trivia for you, in an early draft ofEnemy there was a chapter with him where Vydor and Kellyn visited him at his home. It took place during that year that the book skips over. I cut it as a distraction to the pace of the novel, but it was not forgotten! It has come back from the grave and is bigger and better then before.
Last night I completed the epilogue of Volume IV. At one hundred and seven thousand words it is roughly the same length as Rise of Shadows. Because I use an iterative writing process this is pretty close to what the final draft length will be.
