The publication date for Mary of Shadows, the first sequel to Mary of the Aether, is August 13, 2013. Now you know! Mark your calendars. I know that's still quite a few months away, but I would like to share with you the book's blurb. It is subject to change, I suppose, but for now, this is the description that will appear on the back of the book. Here it is:
“You will lose friends and family, you will lose
everyone you’ve ever cared about.”
In this harrowing sequel to Mary of the Aether, Mary Lanham finds herself under relentless
assault by her enemies, the Lookers. Her powers will be tested to the breaking
point, as the Lookers wage a campaign of terror in the tiny town of Chesset,
Arkansas. Mary may have found a new ally in the mysterious old woman, Vera, but
who is Vera and what does she really want? On top of everything, the worst
person in the world is moving to town to spend the summer at Kristen’s house.
There you go. That's it. In the meantime, I finished the first draft of the second sequel, Mary of Starlight, and did a cursory rewrite. It is almost ready to be submitted to the publisher. Brace your ever-loving selves.
