And it's an exciting one! Secrets are revealed, secrets that could change the course of the war with the Issan and secrets that will change how characters see each other. I spent a long time trying to figure out the right title for this one and thought I had a good title before changing the cover for this title, which fits even better. Honestly, the title was more work than writing the book. The first draft is looking to top out at 43,000 words, making it the longest story in the series to date. (I have only one more scene to write but had such a marathon weekend that I needed a break today.)
I will list #4 (IN DARKNESS, LIGHT) for pre-order in the next 3-4 weeks. I'm looking for a near-Christmas release date for that one and can only list it 90 days out. That should give me ample time to write #6, which is going to be so much fun! (Okay, I say that about each of these... mostly. #3 was difficult because I wanted to establish some foundation without locking myself into too many details.) #6, however, is going to break from the hardcore story-arc and let the characters do something not related to the Starfire or the Issan. It'll be like The Rule of Yonder in that it was a character-building, explore-the-possibilities-of-this-setting, and not-worry-about-the-overall-arc story. I may even bring in some of the species mentioned in TRoY. But I'm getting ahead of myself. You'll have to wait until next summer for that.
In the meantime, if you haven't started reading this series, the first ebook, A NEW BEGINNING, is only $0.99. All books after that are only $2.99. The second book, THE RULE OF YONDER, is available now also, and the third book, VAULT OF THE CELESTIALS, will be out on September 12th. You can pre-order that now.
