Update on upcoming work

Book 2 - Shrouded Island 
The 2nd book will be released very soon - hopefully in 2 weeks.

Book 3 - Rise of the Witch
I just recieved the last round of editting back from my editor. Once the cover is finished and final formatting is done, it will be released. I'm hoping for mid-March.

Book 4 - Magic of Heroes
I'm nearly finished with the first draft and it's coming along quite nicely. I feel very good about the draft, and there should be minimal re-writes. I'm hoping for a late spring release.

My first two short stories, Winged Demon: Natalie & Darius and Circus Freak: Bryce should be released in mid-March. The third story Brujeria: Rafe, will be released more towards the end of March.

Once I get final covers for each, I will start posting them. March will be a busy month for the Department of Magic!

Update on what's coming!

It's been a while since I've posted on the blog, but I've been busy preparing the next wave of DOMA stories.

Shrouded Island (Book 2) - Onaje is finishing up on the cover and then it will be ready to go. I've seen it recently and it will look great!

I'm also going to release the first short stories from the companion series named DOMA: Origins. Each shotrstory will range in length of 30-60 pages and will explore one of Cadan's teammates. Initially I wanted to delve into the backstories in the series itself, but realized that I wanted to go into a lot of detail and doing that would slow the larger story down too much. I am very pleased with how they turned out.

I have a new set of covers for these that are currently in development. I will post them as soon as they are ready. Here are the first two that will be released:

Winged Demon: Natalie & Darius - This will be an expanded version of the story Natalie told Cadan in Betrayal of Magic. You will notice a difference in the version Natalie told and the one that actually happens. This inconsistency is intentional and will be addressed in Book 4.

Circus Freak: Bryce - This short story is one of my favorites!

There's a lot more coming soon after these, but I don't want to announce too much until I'm further along.

Thank you everyone for your patience!
