One More Book

Well, there is one more book to go in my current phase of super-mega-book-publishing. It began with Shadows of Tockland, continued with Bloodstone and A Whisper in the Void, and it will conclude with one final book. And what is that book, you ask?

It is none other than the thrilling fantasy novel, Garden of Dust and Thorns. Yes, that's the title of it now. That was not always the title, but that is the title now. What is this Garden of Dust and Thorns all about? Well, it's about a garden hidden behind a high wall of vines, a garden surrounded by an entire world of dust and decay, and the people who live in the shadow of the wall. And it's also about the 1,000 armed men who appear in the desert one dreadful morning, ready to tear down the wall and defile the garden. "Whyever would they want to defile the garden?" you ask. Well, you will have to read and find out.

Oh, here is one potentially interesting detail. Most of the names in the book are of Tamil origin: Adhi, Kathiri, Magesh, etc. "Why are they of Tamil origin?" you ask. "Why not?" I reply.

I am currently self-editing the manuscript like crazy and should be done in a couple of days. Then it will be another week or two for cover art, formatting and uploading and all of that business. However, Garden of Dust and Thorns should be wonderfully available for purchase by the end of April.

After that, I will have no more books for you to read until August, when Mary of Shadows comes out. Sorry.

  1. Sounds rad. Looking forward to reading it. Also, I think Kristina is tearing through "A Whisper in the Void" at the moment. She also gifted a couple copies of "Bloodstone" and "Shadows of Tockland" to various people.
