So… a lot’s been going on. Following the completion of Drakin: The Story of Raiya, I dove right into the sequel. This… is admittedly kind of rare as I usually take time off between books… however, I got a really good idea going and decided to just keep chugging along since I was on a roll!
I usually do these announcements independent of the previous books’ release, but I know I gave pretty clear signals that there would be a sequel. So everyone should consider this full confirmation… yes, there will be a sequel to Drakin: The Story of Raiya.
So let’s run through a quick list of questions that people typically ask me when a new release is announced. See below for the FAQ:
Do you have a title?
Yes. It took me a while and I admit that I had the book mostly done before I landed on one. The title of the next book in the series will be “Drakin: The Orphans of Haven”.
Do you have a release date?
… no, not yet. We literally just finished the 3rd draft and it has gone to the editor. Likely they’ll be ripping it apart for a few weeks before we can move on to the final draft.
Okay… any rough idea?
We’re hoping for late-fall. Maybe October, but who knows? We might be able to get it out sooner. *Fingers crossed*
Are we going to be reading more about the adventures of Raiya?
I honestly cannot say. While some characters from the previous novel will appear and have an impact on the story, they are not the main characters here. Their appearances will be strictly cameo.
Where will I be able to get a copy?
Barnes and Noble, Amazon, local booksellers should have it or at least be able to order it.
Where/when will the story take place?
After the events of The Story of Raiya. So this will be set after the end of the Red War.
