According to my records, The Oracle's Golem should be going out of print on May 31. What does that mean? Luckily, absolutely nothing. LT3 has already agreed to renew the contracts for the previous two books in the series and I have not seen any indication that it will be different for Golem. Since we're not editing or changing the covers for this series, there shouldn't be an interruption in sales. I'll let you know as soon as LT3 and I have a conversation about it. That should be it for stories going out of print in 2019.
I am really hoping to get The Oracle's Current finished this year so I can complete this series. I've been doing some planning for the book, which has always had a basic outline, but has lacked some of the firmer details. Right now it looks like pirates will be back in play. I'm still trying to decide if the pirates will be good or bad (or something in between), but Lichen is going to have some "fun" regardless. I'm struggling on how to get Lichen away from the Monastery right now. There's a big, emotional scene that needs to happen first, and the build up to that isn't flowing well. Only after that scene is written can I really turn my focus on getting him into the hands of the pirates.
In other news, The Coup and the Prince appears to be well liked! The reviews have been positive and the comments seem to indicate readers are enjoying the story. If you haven't gotten your copy yet, it's available at LT3 and on Amazon, as well as on your preferred bookseller's site.
I have seen the second draft of the cover for Ground of Resurrection and it's even better than the first. I can't wait to have the final version to share!
