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!

    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 !

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. ;-;

      That was just a suggestion like the last author’s book I read which had a website where you can read the book early.

    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.
