So, I just got some concept art back from the artist for a new book, and things are progressing right along. The new novel is called The Tomni'Tai Scroll. I won't go into too many details now, but we are shooting for a late September launch. I'll be sure to put up a "teaser" and likely a first chapter or two.
As for the sequel to The Dragon's Champion, I have received several inquiries asking me to move up its release date. I can't promise that it will be out before Spring 2014, there are many cogs involved in the machine... but I will see what can be done. Either way, I will post updates as things progress --stay tuned!
