I would like to take some time to announce my three year book plan now that Darkness Rising has been published (and thank you to everyone who has purchased copies so far). I heartily appreciate all of the wonderful comments that you all have thrown my way about the work. Thank you. I also have noted your feedback, and I will comment on that towards the end of the blog post.
First I would like to talk about my three year book plan.
Darkness Rising was always meant to be a prequel or a book 0 of the Ancient Vestiges universe. It was meant to set up characters, countries, and the mythos for three lengthy books that would follow. Now that it is out, I have been hard at work at constructing the trilogy of novels. Today I am announcing the titles and release windows.
CHAINS OF FATE – Summer 2017
UNBREAKABLE WILL – Summer 2018
TRANSCENDENT – Summer 2019
These proceeding novels will follow the same format as Darkness Rising: they will be character perspective driven and have three distinct books or parts. For Chains of Fate, the individual books will be titled Daemon Lord, Godsbane, and Pantheon. I will be announcing the individual books for Unbreakable Will and Transcendent at a later date.
Now for feedback on Darkness Rising.
I have heard everyone loud and clear: the physical book for Darkness Rising is far too bulky. I will not be making any alteration to the book at this time, but starting with Chains of Fate, I will be decreasing the book’s physical dimensions, and lowering the font. This will make the book far lighter. In addition, when I re-issue Darkness Rising in later editions, it will follow this same format.
Thank you once again for your support. I will keep posting — and keep writing!
