Great news! Stoc is now live for purchase on Amazon! I released the novel last night and pushed the final build to Amazon. I’ve got the novel up on my Kindle and it looks great!
The paperback version will be out as soon as I can finish the work and approve the proof. This usually takes me about 3-4 weeks. It is easier now than with my first novel. It just requires a little patience on my part and a goodly amount of time in Word making the formatting perfect. By the way, Stoc clocks in at almost exactly 100,000 words (I’m shy by seven words). This puts the novel at my least amount of words but honestly, I think that is the perfect amount of words.
I am truly very pleased with Stoc. It tells the story of the struggle Will has in coming to terms with what his draoi can do and what he is being asked to do by those who wish to return the land back to the original monarchy. I hope you enjoy!
In other news, I have started Freamhaigh, Volume Four! It will come out as soon as I can write it but likely in early 2018. It never seems to end! The outline is started and the story I always envisaged is starting to come close to completing. Two more novels I think: Freamhaigh and then Cill Darae. Five is a perfect number for a series. Don’t you think? Any more than that and I get annoyed as a reader.
Meanwhile, I am in Portsmouth, England. I am enjoying the English fare and the weather which has been lovely. I will need to go on a diet when I get home on Thursday.
Lastly, please come check out the launch party tonight. It starts at 5 pm EST with me kicking it off and talking about Stoc and the New Druids Series. There will be prizes!
