Ok, yeah, so I've been home from our latest trip for a couple months now. :D I've been trying to recover, but this summer has been full of this and that and the other, and in between I've been working hard on the books.
I'm down to the final rounds of cleanup and polishing edits on Mages' Uprising, Book 3 of Defenders of the Wildings. It's at 99,000+ words, by far the longest of the Wildings novels. I always hesitate to announce release dates because stuff *always* happens to delay them, but I think we can look for this one to go live in late September/early October. As always, to make sure you don't miss out when it's released, sign up for my email newsletter. And watch for the cover reveal, coming soon! (Newsletter subscribers will get the first look!)
I'm also almost done with the first draft of book 2 of a new series, set in the Islands where Silas's ancestors came from, shortly before the mage emigration to Granadaia began. I'm having a lot of fun with these characters and the different setting. There's still book 3 to write, then all the revising and editing, and I'm saving up for covers, so there's a long way to go until these are ready for release. The prequel novella will be free for subscribers to my email list!
Anyway, I'm making progress, even if it's in fits and starts.
And now, some photos from my trip to Scotland!
Doune Castle. Parts of Monty Python and the Holy Grail were filmed here, along with scenes from the Outlander and Game of Thrones TV shows.
Standing Stones of Torhouse. About 4000 years old. It's amazing how evenly they're arranged, and in a perfect circle.
A mysterious castle near a seaside hotel where we stopped one rainy afternoon to get something to eat.
