Well, first an update. You basically haven't heard from me, because I got mono in late November. That basically knocked me out for two months.
But, the next Glyphaery book was well underway, and I got it completed. I'm pretty excited. It's my first true sequel (well, prequel to be precise).
Here it is: Elder Ardryl.
It should come out at the end of this month. I'm in the final edits and ready to tell you about it!
Elder Ardryl is the elder and healer of Foxwell Canyon when Florian and Vil from Book 1 are kids. This book has their training under him to become Glyphaery.
This means you get to learn their backgrounds, how they ended up where they did for Book 1, and lots, lots more about the magic system.
In addition to all this, you get a full romance between Elder Ardryl, the protective steady man, and Myles, an independent and silly traveling merchant.
Their personalities might conflict, but their passion is strong. The romance keeps with the trend of a classic m/m romance thread in each of my books, but this character progression is new.
I'm happy with how it turned out, and I'll let you all know how to get a copy when it becomes available officially (sign up to the newsletter for instant notifications).
