I am hard at work on Dawn of the Sacred Land. The cover pic at the side is a tentative cover that I may use for the new book. The book itself I plan to give away for free as an introduction to the Sacred Land Saga. I have the final book of the series carefully planned out (and it has some of the material I had originally planned for Redemption already written within its pages) but I want to carefully go over all the books in the series and make sure that the final book kicks fantasy butt! I answered a lot of questions from the first two books in Redemption and I'm satisfied that I can tie everything up in the final book titled Legacy of the Sacred Land.
Other than writing Dawn and finishing the Sacred Land Series , I revisited and re-planned out the two remaining books of the Wielder Cycle and I am working on planning out a new four book series titled the Shadow Legacy. It is a completely new series and does not tie in with the Sacred Land at all. There is also another two original series in the works, but they will probably be for 2016. Also in late 2016 or early 2017 I will begin planning and writing another Sacred Land Series, which will begin a few years after the final book in the current series. I want to explore some other stuff before I tackle another Sacred Land Saga after my current two series are concluded. For those of you who do not know, the Wielder Cycle ties in with the Sacred Land Series.
I am dying to tell you guys about my next series. I think it's great, but its too soon. Actually, I hinted at a couple of series I have in the works in past blogs and I still plan to write them all, and all of them are in various stages of planning. It just so happens that the next series (I will announce it soon) began developing faster than the rest and is now the forerunner. That happens sometimes. I actually had another series in mind to write next, but this one started coming together much faster.
Anyway, The Sacred Land Series is pretty well planned and done, all I have to do is write it and send it to the editor.
Same goes for the Wielder Cycle. Once I finish and release Dawn of the Sacred Land, I should be ready to announce the next series while I finish writing Legacy and wrap up the current Sacred Land Saga. The Wielder Cycle will be at a slower pace (probably) because I want to get The Sacred land Saga done first. The final Wielder books will probably be released along with the first book or two of the new series.
