Happy New Year 2022!

by Jan 1, 2022Wonderings8 comments

Happy New Year everyone!

This has definitely been a rough year, but it’s in the rearview mirror now, and hopefully 2022 will be a much better one. However, in doing a retrospective on 2021, there were some highlights, for which I am grateful.

It begins with Memories of Prophecies, which was received so well. My day job is certainly fulfilling, but it has been very stressful over the past 2 years. As a result, writing has become my retreat and knowing that I helped anyone get through this crisis in any small way is both unexpected and humbling. In addition, because Instrument of Omens as a whole has done so well, my entire back list has also increased in terms of sales.

This gives me options that I never expected to have when I started out my writing career back in January 2014. I’m not sure what this means on a long-term perspective, but having options is always a good thing.

And returning back to Instrument of Omens, I have good news. Book 3, A Necessary Heresy, releases on January 7!

That’s not too far away, and while this was the most challenging book I’ve ever written, I’m also very proud of how it turned out. I’m also just plain excited to see the book enter the world. Here is the preorder link, which should automatically take you to the Amazon of your country: https://readerlinks.com/l/2240689

As far as the audiobook for A Necessary Heresy is concerned, it will be narrated by Nick Podehl, which is awesome. The release date should be in the summer. Sigh. I know. Another long wait, but I think it’ll be worth it.

    Thank you, I first read the cast’s and the outcasts years ago but have immensely liked Instrument of Omens (and consider it your best work so far). I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while.

      Glad you stuck with me after Castes, and I also think Instrument of Omens is my best work, so no worries there, lol.

      Dear Davis,

      Happy new year to you. Am very happy to hear about the release of book 3. The first two books were the first time I came across your work and both were great reads. I was wondering if you had any plans for any new series in a different or same world in future?

      Best wishes,
      Kay

        Hi Kay,

        Happy New Year to you, as well. I have lots of plans. There is a series that connects Castes and the OutCastes to William Wilde. That one would explain why Rukh and Jessira left their world to come to Earth. Weird, I know, but blame Jessira. She insisted on it. Then there would be a series that would be set in Earth’s past, and how Rukh and Jessira became known as Shokan and Sira, and their first war with Shet. There are others beyond that, too.

    Was extremely excited to hear this is finally getting released! These books and all your others have hooked me and this third installment for Cinder and Anya has been highly anticipated! I see that this is being released for kindle on January 7th, but I was wondering, when is hard copy going to be released?
    Thanks for all your great work and getting it out there to your fans so quickly.

      Anticipation can be so delicious. I still feel that way for so many books.

      I’m hoping to have the trade paperback for A Necessary Heresy ready later this month. I’m also hoping to hardcover versions of all three books ready at around the same time as well.

    I’m super excited to read book 3. And I know you mentioned the audiobook but do you know when a physical release of the book will be?

      Hi Justin,

      I am still working on the print version, but I should have the paperback ready within the next several weeks. I’m waiting on my author proofs, and after that, things should be fine.
