Okay, I get that I seem to have disappeared lately. That’s a fair assessment. To set the record straight, I am not dead, I am not sick, and I am not suffering from anything keeping me away from writing beyond life. But I changed jobs around the first of this year, and as a result, I don’t have the same amount of writing time that I used to. But I am writing, and I do still intend to get what I owe my readers out eventually.
Here’s where we’re at with the ones people have been asking about.
The Knight’s Folly (Twin Magic 3): This is the big one, naturally. Remind me to never promise publication dates for sequels. I suggested I’d get this out mid-2015, which means it’s two years late. Hey, at least I’m not as late as George R.R. Martin is with the Winds of Winter. But I set out to address some of the criticisms of the first two books with this one, namely that they were too short and rushed over things people wanted more of. So I’m aiming at 100k words on this one. I’m not there yet. I won’t tell you where I’m at, but there’s a ways to go yet. Some hints: Hans and Julia are back. The third color will be revealed. There’s going to be a war. Martin Luther puts in an appearance. Beyond that, who knows?
Scorpion (A Dark Web
3 2): I actually started this one before Spider was even released, but didn’t get all that far. I’ve written a bit more here and there. All I can tell you is that most of it takes place in Africa, it’s even darker than the first one (there are two murders in the first chapter alone), and the title refers to Makayla. The rest you’ll have to wait for.
After two months in pre-order, I’m happy to say that The Witches’ Covenant, Book 2 in the Twin Magic series, is finally live on Amazon and ready for download. As I type this, its #1 in Greek & Roman Myths & Legends (why Greco-Roman? I have no idea) and
#5 also #1 in the overall Myths & Legends category. If you’re one of the many people who pre-ordered it, thanks for the support and I hope you enjoy this installment.

That’s the subject of my guest post over on Literary Musings, the first tour stop for The Witches’ Covenant. With it I’ve got a short excerpt from the book. Go check it out.
Between now and April 6, I’m going to be promoting The Witches’ Covenant with guest posts, interviews, excerpts, and more across the book blogosphere. The tour is being organized by Enchanted Book Promotions, and you can find the schedule here.
The book will be released March 20, and I’ll have a special promotion running March 15 through March 21. More on that later.
I have—appropriately enough—engaged Enchanted Book Promotions to help me launch The Witches’ Covenant. The promotional tour will begin March 6, leading up to the book’s release on March 20. I’ll be doing some promotional specials to support the tour as it progresses—more on that later.
If you’re interested in being a tour host or reviewer, please contact Enchanted Book Promotions on their web site via the tour page.
That is, The Witches’ Covenant, the sequel to my bestselling novel The Wizard’s Daughters, is now up in Amazon and ready for pre-order. The book will be released March 20. Meanwhile, you can admire the awesome cover art from the equally awesome Ellinsworth, who did the art for Book 1.
I’m just saying.
The first draft at least. Lots of proofing and revision yet to go, but expect it for pre-order soon.
