EDIT #2: It's live!
EDIT: It's uploaded! The book is in Amazon's hands now. Leave me a comment here or on Facebook when/if you see a working link.
Ladies and gentlemen, I'm currently preparing my newest novel (Unsouled) for upload! I'll be putting it up in just a few hours, which means it will be available tonight.
Unsouled is the first book in a series I'm calling simply Cradle, and I'm trying a few things differently with this story.
For one thing, I'm primarily following one character in chronological order. There are a few sections from a different POV, but 90% of the book is told from the perspective of the protagonist, Lindon. In Traveler's Gate I had Leah and Alin take up about a third of each book, and in Elder Empire I jumped around in time, but I'm keeping those things to a minimum here.
Second, I'm trying to fill in some details and progress a little more steadily than I have in the past. In House of Blades, for example, I skip some things I could have shown in scene, and Simon progresses very quickly from "completely powerless" to "murdering dozens of Travelers." In Cradle, Lindon will be moving at a more measured pace. If you wanted my books to fill in the books a little more and take it one step at a time rather than jumping ahead, this is the story for you.
Third, while I wrote this book primarily for fun, the series has room to grow as long as I want. In the TGT and EE, those series had planned ending points. This one doesn't.
It's about Lindon growing, exploring the world, and slowly becoming absurdly powerful.
If that sounds interesting to you, or if you enjoyed the preview I sent out over my mailing list last month, then check it out in a few hours!
Also, Unsouled is (by a little) the shortest novel I've written so far. I think it works better if the books are relatively short but they come out often, though I'm open to feedback on that.
Let me know what you think!
P.S. For those of you waiting for word on this month's mailing list story, I'm on it! I was in Central America, and then sick because I went to Central America, and then releasing this book. But it's coming very soon! Prepare thyself!
P.P.S. Also, House of Blades is on sale for free this week! Check it out!
