Are you filling that brand new Kindle with awesome new books? Are your bookshelves overflowing? I hope so!
I thought I'd take a moment to share an update on what I'm working on. The big news, of course, is The Strength to Serve releases in two weeks, on January 19th! In this book, the stakes are higher, the conflicts bigger, and the consequences for failure far-reaching. From the back cover copy:
As an invading army threatens their homeland, Daro, Cecily, and Pathius are drawn back into the political turmoil of Halthas. An assassin wreaks havoc on the city, a dangerous artifact is stolen, a force bent on conquest marches toward their border, and they all must take up arms to defeat an enemy their kingdom is not prepared to face.
Writing this book has been quite the journey. It's longer than the first two, and the scope is considerably bigger. I'm really excited to share it with all of you!
This story takes place across the ocean from Halthas, in the Empire of Attalon. Rhisia Sen is a highly-paid assassin, living in luxury in the capital city. With the wealth she's amassed, she's only a few years away from retiring from her trade. She's offered a lucrative contract, and although it means traveling to the outskirts of the Empire, the price is too good to refuse. This could be her last kill. But when she arrives at her destination, she discovers her target is nothing but a child...
I've enjoyed writing this book so much and I'll keep you posted on my progress. Like I said, my target release date is sometime this spring.
Happy reading, everyone!
