A quick update about where I am with a few projects:
The Lost Mask
Have handed in the next round of revisions to the publisher and now we hope to go into copy editing very soon, and remain on track for the December release. So if you enjoyed City of Masks, you don't have to wait too long before the follow-up is out!
The Fairy Wren
Sadly I've faced a few delays and should now release The Fairy Wren in the middle of November instead of the end of Oct - in the meantime there's a Goodreads Giveaway on at the moment, so If you're curious check it out :)
Sea of Trees
Revisions for The Lost Mask bumped this one back a little - I hope to finish the third draft in December while TLM is in production. Then the novella should be ready in the new year. I've got a bit more foreshadowing to do on the story and it will be much, much better for it.
Here's a rough, general blurb:
When ESL teacher Riko finds an old journal buried in the forests beneath Mt Fuji, her chances of staying in her adopted home are threatened, as dark forces begin to twist everything around her; work, friends and even the very fabric of reality.
Worse, no-one takes her fears seriously and the more she studies the journal for answers, the more questions she uncovers.
Planning for Book 3 of The Bone Mask Trilogy is all done and I've got a rough chapter one down - only fifty or so to go!
