Quick Update – and Cover Reveal

31 Mar

Hi, everyone

It’s been a maddening couple of weeks.  You never quite realise what you have until it’s gone – in this case, the freedom to walk around, send the kids to school, etc.  I’m not supposed to go out unless it’s really urgent – as I’m immunocompromised – so really I’ve been stuck inside for the last few days.  A sizable number of medical appointments that would have been important last month have now been cancelled.

On the plus side, I’ve completed 31 chapters of Cast Adrift and approved the cover for The Artful Apprentice.  It’s currently being edited, so I’m hoping to do the edits next week and then have it in your hands.  I’m going to write a short story next – Nanette’s Tale – that will fill in some of the blanks in Schooled in Magic, without – hopefully – throwing off the story too much if the next volume of Fantastic Schools is delayed. 

I hope you’re all keeping well.

    The cover looks good. But most importantly you stay safe.

    Yes indeed. Here in the Pocono Mountains USA. We’re still not going anywhere either. Sure is amazing all the neat things we get from China! Keep well!

    Yes, super excited to see where this book goes! The cover with the dragon is also interesting so I can’t wait to see what you have for us Chris 😏

    Is Nanette’s Tale a short story or just a journey from minion ( albeit not yellow ) to apprentice evildoer and finally a BIG BAD. Sounds like trilogy

    Please stay indoors! My 84 year old mom’s getting chemo for Lymphoma now, and she never leaves the house! Great cover & can’t wait for Nanette’s story!

    From an Italian fan of yours, who is entering the fourth week of lockdown… Please stay safe.

    WHAT is that background image to the Dragon? Could that be a MAP of the UnNamed World that shows the 2nd Continent and the waters between them???!!!

      Actually I think there is already a 2nd Known Continent, but it (The image in the Cover Art) still might include the 3rd Unknown Continent that Emily saw on the Map underneath Whitehall School in Infinite Regression (Book 9)

    Sorry, I think that I looked the cover picture wrong, I think it may be the top side of the dragon instead of a background image of a Map.

    Do stay safe. Would hate to miss your stories due to a virus. I know you have some great ones still to be told!
