The new novel is with the editor right now, and the cover is almost completed. I have to admit, the process is
a lot longer than I expected, by a factor of probably two. Beta readers (btw, if you are interested in being a trusted
beta reader, be sure to sign up for the mailing list and contact me) took a few weeks, round one edits took a few weeks, and now probably a few more weeks for round two editing and the cover. I'm hoping to be able to book some promos next month, and if everything goes well, release in September or October.
Meanwhile, I'm working on a prequel that focuses on one of the characters from this book. Jessica Luvkrafft is a member of The Order of Mankind, a secret organization created hundreds of years ago to battle the evil creatures of darkness. The prequel will focus on her struggle to find her place within the organization while being raised by one of The Order's most famous warriors and scientists (and overprotective father) Jake Luvkrafft.
Things goin' on.
