Okay everyone--I'm going to admit that waiting sucks.
I have been getting questions from various people about when Book #2 will be released, etc. So I'm going to tell you what I know right now.
Here's the skinny on what's going down over at HarperCollins: I have line edits for Covenant. Unfortunately, I still do not have the editorial notes. Without them, I can't revise the book. And so I wait, and wait, and wait. And in the meantime I keep myself busy, because just sitting there and waiting would be plain dumb, right?
The publication date right now is June of 2013, though this could change. Believe me, I was hoping for sooner rather than later, but we authors have no say over release dates. >_> So I hope you can all be patient with me, everyone! I am doing my best for us all. Honestly, it kills me because I love Book # 2 and I know you will too. But, hey, such is life.
Be assured, however, that I will keep everyone updated when I am updated.
In the meantime, Archon will be released in paperback on November 6 of 2012, which is an amazing milestone for any author. The content remains the same, although I was able to include a helpful glossary this time--something I had hoped for with the hardcover. Also, the final words at the end of the paperback now say, "To Be Continued" if only because I never realized how many people read Archon and thought it was both the beginning and end of the story. Far from it! Stupid me, I know . . . O_O
Anyway, if anyone else has any questions for me, feel free to contact me here, or through email, FB, Twitter, etc. I'll make sure to get back to you ASAP.
