Hey friends.

This will be quick, nothing major. I recently released images of the new maps that will be featured in Erafeen #2 (click here if you missed it). Get your first look at the Cyn, Passion, Still, and Archaic Kingdoms.

Alessandro, the illustrator for my book covers, sent me some mock-ups today of what he’s been working on. All I can say is that it’s going to be beautiful and will set the tone for how the story feels, and I can’t wait to show the finished product with all of you—and that includes a title release, so I don’t have to keep calling it “Erafeen #2”.

Sadly, I’m in the middle of a fourth read-through of Erafeen #2. We’re now on the book’s fourth draft, and it should be the last. Or at least I hope so. My brain has turned to mush. As proud as I am of this story, reading it four times in a row is … ugh. Especially after the gazillion times I’ve read through bits and pieces of it as I wrote it.

So that’s all I have tonight. Remember that The Jestivan is still free on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo, Smashwords, and NoiseTrade, or by subscribing to my newsletter.

Have an ethical day.
