Yes, I am still alive (and writing)

Book 3 Drafts

I just wanted to post an update in these strange pandemic times to let people know that I am still alive and that I am still working on Book 3. Other work (the kind which pays the bills) has kept me busy the last few years, and of course everything that has been going on the last few months has also been distracting. But I am still writing and determined to get the next leg of Erynn’s story into the world. I have lived much of the last six years without Internet at home (not even on my phone!), which is partly why I have not visited here in a while. I have (frustratingly) also had little to say other than I am still writing.

I posted the above photo back in August 2016. I have this strange need to keep all of my drafts (the ultimate backup, I suppose) and it’s where I was in terms of Book 3 drafts at the time. The photo below is what that same pile looks like today. Four years, almost. And oh so many trees!


Book 3: Title Release


Happy Canada Day!

I still don’t have a release date for Book 3, but am far enough along in the drafting of the book to feel comfortable in releasing the title I’ve had stuck in my head the last four years:


Writing this book has definitely been a challenge these last few years, but I'm very pleased with the way it’s coming together and can’t wait for it to finally be finished and out in the world.

I’ve gone off social media again, so stay tuned to my website, or subscribe to my newsletter, to find out more about the eventual release of the book. You can also follow me on Amazon.

Book 3 of the Cael Stone — Update

For those waiting for the release of the next book in the Cael Stone series (and aren’t following me on Twitter or Facebook), I wanted to post an update to let you know that it IS coming. It’s just taking me MUCH longer than I had originally anticipated. Life has thrown me a few curve balls over the last three years since Dragon Fire was published, including three moves and some unexpected home repairs, and, of course, these things always seem to take priority…

BUT I am still plugging away and growing VERY excited at the thought of finally finishing the book and getting the next leg of Erynn’s journey out into the world. The photo below was taken back in June and shows all of my drafts up to that point (much of my writing takes place in between the lines and around the margins of my printed drafts). It currently clocks in around 152,000 words, and that’s another reason it’s taking so long. Longer books take longer to write!

Although I am still unable to provide a release date, I will do my best to post more frequent updates here on my website, as well as through my newsletter and social media accounts. 

For those who haven’t yet read my books, or know someone who might like to, my ebooks will continue to be available for FREE to Amazon Kindle Unlimited members until August 22. After that, my ebooks will no longer be exclusive to Amazon and I will be redistributing them to other online retailers (including Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, and Smashwords). It might take a couple of weeks for them to show up on those other sites, but they will be there eventually!

Thanks again for your patience, and I look forward to providing another update soon! :)


THE LAST FALCON will be available for FREE download at Amazon over the next 5 days: September 5 through September 9.
