I’m so sorry for dropping off the radar there. It’s been a very busy year for me. Moving, medical issues, etc. Stressful stuff. Anyway, I have some good news! I’ll be releasing (this month!) an ebook through Amazon entitled Dawn of Fate. It’s a short story/prequel to Nightingale.
I’m also working hard on the last two books in the series. I haven’t forgotten and they will eventually be released. The third is, I’d say, 75% finished. The rough draft is done and I’m going in to fix some scenes I’m not entirely happy with and to do more editing.
I’ve got maybe 30% of Book 4 complete. These two books will be released through Amazon. I know they’ll be ebooks and I hope I can also get them as paperbacks. I won’t make promises yet, but start keeping an eye out for Book 3 this year.
In today’s news, there’s an audiobook in the works for Nightingale! I’m really excited about this project. I don’t have much more information at the moment, other than that recording has started and I’ve heard the first 15 minutes. I really like the narrator.
Also, I’ve been toying with the idea of releasing a few Nightingale-related short stories through Amazon. They’d be Kindle only due to their length, so no print versions. The first would be a short prequel to Nightingale.
Hello everyone! It looks like Amazon has made the Kindle and trade paperback editions of Bones of the Vale available for sale already.
I hope you enjoy! If you do, please consider leaving a review. 🙂
We have a release date!
Bones of the Vale, sequel to Nightingale, will be published by Hadley Rille Books on November 28, 2017.
“The strange creature sat near the glowing coals, the light reflected in its great gold-green eyes, and it spoke. The voice was like gravel, like snapping trees, like the opening of the world. ‘I will save you,’ it said. ‘Build a place for me.’
“‘What place?’ said one man.
“‘Where?’ said another.
“‘Why?’ said the last.
“And the creature opened its great maw and devoured the third, for he had asked the most lethal of questions. ‘You will build a home of the earth,’ it said, ‘in the midst of the world. And I will give you life unending.’
After a long hiatus, I have news! Bones of the Vale, sequel to Nightingale, will be published by Hadley Rille books in 2017!
