Hello, my wonderful readers!
I do have an update for everyone on the Drakin world. In response to the question a lot of people have asked since day one… Yes, there will be one more sequel in the Drakin series, and yes you heard that right; one more. To be honest, I wasn’t keen on letting the series end on The Butcher’s Endsong. At best, it was an ambiguous ending, at worst, it was a downer. I don’t want that for a series that has brought a lot of joy, both for me to write and (hopefully) you all to read. I want to end the series right. I want it to go out with a bang, for better or worse. So I worked up the creative juices to deliver the finale once and for all. This book will end the series all together.
So wait, does that mean that’s it? You’re done?
If you’re asking if I’m done with the Drakin series… the answer is likely yes. However, never say never. I could wind up coming up with an offshoot title in the same world or an additional adventure to tie things together. I do have an incomplete story that takes place during the height of the Red War, which I have been toying with for a while. However, at this point, I am focused on finishing the finale to the main series.
If you’re asking if I’m done writing in general… the answer is most likely no. I love writing, like really love it. However, it takes a lot of time, effort, and money to get the book done, get it to publishing, and make sure it looks good. It takes a lot out of you. I’m pretty much at the end of my line in terms of inspiration and in need of rest. Over the last ten years, I’ve literally almost a novel a year, which is no small task.
I just want to say that this is an incredible journey and I look forward to it continuing. I can’t wait to deliver my next book to all of you!
So what can I tell you this far?
Well, this book will have a ton of cameos and honorable mentions. A lot. It will take the entire world in a new direction that will hopefully answer all of the remaining questions and give a sense of finality to Qira’s wish.
It takes place from the end of Cataclysm Protocol: Red and then moves onto the events of The Butcher’s Endsong before branching off into its own book.
The working title at this point is “The Rule of One.”
That’s what I have for now. I don’t want to tip my hat too much. Stay tuned. There’s a lot more exciting things to come!
