It is with paramount excitement that I’m going to announce some news today that I have been teasing for months. Many readers have asked me what my plan is following the Air Awakens series. With the last book, Crystal Crowned, out in July, there’s only so much longer I can go without an answer.
The Air Awakens series has been finished since early 2014. While it went through extensive rewrites and months of edits for each book, my mind was free to begin conceptualizing the next world I wanted to take my readers to. Before even keying the first word of this new place, I spent months working on a magic system, developing histories, and pushing myself to create what I hope will be a new and deeply rich experience for my readers.
Today, I can share the name of that world with you all: The Loom Saga.
But, my announcements don’t end there. As many of you know, I use a distribution company (Gatekeeper Press) to help with getting Air Awakens to market. Through this business relationship, I came to know Rob Price, founder of Price World Publishing. He had his own project that he thought I would be perfect for and, after months of working out the details, I am excited to say that The Alchemists of Loom (Loom Saga, #1) will be at the forefront of Price World Publishing’s new imprint, Keymaster Press.
This partnership is unique in that it will allow us to leverage our individual strengths. Rob and I have an excellent existing working relationship, so we are going into this new partnership with mutual trust and an extensive knowledge of how the other works. I was not about to entrust my stories into the hands of just any publisher, so I’m relieved to say that I have nothing but confidence surrounding this relationship.
This is also the first time I have signed with a traditional publisher and will have that support behind me in releasing a new title. This will mean a few things to my readers that I am very excited for, such as lower cost print books (when compared to Air Awakens) and a full release in major book retailers across North America and the United Kingdom.
Obviously, there will be more details surrounding publication in the coming weeks and months. And, more importantly, more details on the world of The Alchemists of Loom! I couldn’t be happier about this and I hope that you, my dear readers, are as well. I would not be where I am now without every one of you, and I hope that you will continue to let me take you to new worlds for many years to come.
For now, however, enjoy the nearing conclusion of the Air Awakens series.
Forever your author,
