So, I’ve been slogging through the third draft of The Lost Mask (Book 2 of the Bone Mask Trilogy) and will be handing it to my editor at Snapping Turtle on August 1st. So far everything looks set for me to meet that target so it’s my hope that The Lost Mask will see publication before Christmas!
I’ve also revisited the outline for Greatmask, the conclusion to the trilogy, and I have to say that I’m taking a lot of care with it. I don’t want the series to spiral into an endless line of books, but that also means that the third book might be a bit bigger than the first two – each a bit shy of 500 pages. We’ll see!
In other news I’m hoping to release an unrelated novel, The Fairy Wren possibly in September, you can check the blub here. I’m just working on preparing the e-book (print is ready to go as we speak) and the cover art. In yet more 'other' news, the parnormal fantasy novella Sea of Trees (working title) is also at the publisher and I'm really looking forward to the feedback so I can refine it further.
In the meantime, stay tuned for a cover reveal for The Lost Mask and a teaser from The Fairy Wren in the near future, along with a couple more interviews with great authors!
