May Update 2017

Hello Everyone,

I appreciate the encouragement and support I’ve received from so many of you. I haven’t been able to respond to everyone because I’ve been busy writing.

I’ll be finishing the draft of Book 3 in the next few weeks, and then it will be on to review and editing.

I’ll let you know when I have a better idea of the release dates.

Good reading!

Kel

  1. Kel I want to congratulate you on your success with these first two books. God forbid if something happened to you, I would weep twice. Once for you and once for the fact that, I would never know how the story ends. I have never found a series so enticing and enthralling that I have listened to both audio books back to back more than 6 times without getting bored once. And the only thing about them that bugs me is how many jaws drop throughout the series. But I guess they cant help it either, since everything is just so amazing!!! Thank you for the amazing books!!

  2. Just finished listening to the 1st 2 books for the second time. They are very enjoyable. I can’t believe you are able to write so quickly with such a busy life! I was looking for Book 3 and then realized 1 and 2 were only released last August and October. You are a machine. A real life Reskin, hopefully without all the murdering and such.

    Anywho. Thank you. Take your time. Hug your kid.

  3. Hi Kel. I am looking forward to book 3. Not sure how to cope with the suspense. I hope you don’t kill Rezkin or his Girl Friend. Thanks for an amazing story.

  5. Going on a expedition, I my companion and I decided to listen to your story for the long journey out and back. Your stories were exhilarating with prodigious words expanding my vocabulary. I highly enjoyed the voice cover as well. All the adventures expressed made my own traveling much more bearable. I want to thank you for all your stories and continue to urge you to use your talents. You are amazing at what you do! From your newest fan.

  6. Can’t you just make a website which you can publish the third book’s chapters so we don’t have to wait because I’ve been waiting forever for the third book. ;-;

  7. I am on the last chapter of book 2 of the audio book. I finally stopped listening at 1 AM this morning just because I needed a few hours of sleep before work. This is an excellent series thus far, and I cannot wait for book 3.

  8. First thing I have to say is that I loved the first two books. I can only think of one book series that held me more captivated then the kings dark tidings. Now the thing that I cannot understand is not the long delay of the the third book or the promises that it will be out in a few weeks but got delayed. It’s the Monthly updates that say that it will be out in a few weeks and nothing to explain the, what I feel, the broken promises to us fans. I feel lied to as a fan. I understand that the book is delayed to any issues, I want the best book that you can give. But to me it’s not too hard to post a short note saying sorry I’ve been delayed again. Now I want to reiterate that I loved your books and that I wait anxiously for the third book. But I feel awfully hurt as fan that for all I care for the series that we don’t warrant the time to explain the delays. Thank you for the first two books.

    • I’m glad to hear that you like the books. Unfortunately, you misunderstood the last update. I said I would be finishing the writing of the book in a few weeks, not that it would be released. After the draft is finished, it still has to go to the editor (which can take a month or more) and revisions. I must also coordinate release of the e-book with the audiobook publisher, which may or may not happen at the same time, as they need time to process it, the voice actor needs to read it and prepare his performance, and they must record and edit the audio version. The schedules for all the other people involved must also be taken into consideration since I am a self-published author who must contract services. Luckily, the cover is already finished. 😀 I’ll be releasing an update once I get a better idea of what is happening with all of the other parties involved. Thank you for your interest and patience during this process.

  9. Amazing books, keep up the great work!! I think you have the potential to be remembered in the same company as Joe Abercrombie and Brian McClellan. I also greatly appreciate the pace at which you’re writing, I know it’s hard work.

  10. I think the 1st 2 books are FANTASTIC! You and Brandon Sanderson are currently my 2 favorite authors … In my humble opinion people should be happy the next one is so close at hand… It could be like Patrick Rothfuss KingKiller Chronicle. A great read with no final installment even on the Horizon!
    When i read some of the complaints and expectations of being informed, i am reminded of what an instant gratification society we have become. It really is a testament to the talent showcased in the first 2 books to have people that fired up about it… Thanks for all your efforts. I, like so many others, continue to wait for this next book with great anticipation!

    Thanks Kel !

  15. Kel I love your work the kings dark tidings series is turning out to be one of my most anticipated story lines so far. I just have to tell you to hurry up and finish the next book, and that i can’t wait to read it.

  16. Your creation of believable character personalities, creation of a unique world and a captivating plot shows such a depth of talent. I enjoy the constant focus on the topic of friendship, the descriptions of its virtues and responsibilities. Since I have a trusting and open nature and have lived a long life, I personally would be curious to see the perfectly schooled and idealistic Rezkin deal with deception and betrayal. So far he is too inexperienced to confront life’s darkest moments.

  17. Just finished re-reading… *sigh*. These are the greatest! I’d almost forgotten how much I love The story and the characters!! (I am hoping Frisha grows up a tad in the upcoming installment though; her mistrust and jealousy did get a bit old.) I am so stoked for book 3!!!! Oh… and I gotta know if Pride made it to the escape ship!!

    • I’m just away to start me 3rd read of the books. I agree about Frisha. For me, If she is to be the main “romantic” interest of Reskin then she needs to have more substance.

      She does seem to (slowly) be leaving her Jealous ways behind but she just seems so clueless sometimes.
