Although it is apt to change, Zondervan’s publishing plan is currently like this:
- Merlin’s Blade – February 2013
- Merlin’s Shadow – August 2013
- Merlin’s Nightmare – February 2014
So fans will only have to wait six months between releases, and not the usual year. After working since 2006 on the novels, it will be very strange that all of them will be out in a single 12 month window!
The only way I can keep up with that pace is that I’ve already written book 2, and have most of book 3 plotted out.
I thought this would be a good time to give thanks to God as well as to all those that have helped me along the way, not only in my writing, but also through life:
I can honestly say that there are lots of other writers better than myself that also deserve to be published, yet are not. All I can say is … Keep writing! Keep trying! You’re time will come if you don’t give up!
And everyone, make sure you tune in tomorrow to hear about some of my creative plans to promote Merlin’s Blade!
