Back again to give a quick update. The work on Jaliun continues. I've made a number of revisions to this tale, and I like where it's going. There seems to always be a wrinkle I'd like to twist, here and there, with this work for some odd reason. I suspect it has something to do with the nature of the book. Writing what is essentially a crime novel within a science fantasy world I've created is an odd process. It's enjoyable and challenging, unique for me, and something I really want to nail down to the best of my ability. Needless to say, I'm really looking forward to this one being in the hands of readers. It may be some time yet, as the Chain hardback is probably all I'm looking at for a release this year, but it'll be worth it when it comes; I assure you.
As far as my other works, Shores of Ornateam is accumulating the occasional edit and new poem/short, but that's a particularly slow process with all I have going on right now. And the Canon Xarhcanum is along for the ride. All of these will be of varying lengths and have different aspects of the world of Xarh associated. Some will be light and some heavy. Some will be informative, as it pertains to the history and culture of Xarh, and some will be purely excerpts from people, places, and times that you would have read about in my previous work. It will all combine to add layers to Xarh and smooth the overall world. It's a never-ending process, this world of Xarh, and that's exactly what it's intended to be. There's always something to add, some piece of the puzzle to find, and some new experience to be had on the four continents.
I'll check back with you soon. There are a few things that will be popping up shortly. Some of which are certainly newsworthy. Until next time, Xarhians.
As always, happy reading!
