The Witch's Daughter, book 7

The Witch's Daughter
Book 7 in the Rune Alexander series

In book seven of the Rune Alexander series, Rune meets new allies, enters a bizarre and vaguely familiar world, and realizes all over again that she can never really trust anyone.

Except, maybe, the one she lost...

Sucked into Skyll by the echoes of Wormwood, she must complete a very important task in order to return to the world in which she belongs.

She realizes that when she does return, her world will be changed.

If she returns.

If...because Skyll contains something more precious to her than anything in ANY world.

But the Others of her world--all Others, including those she loves--will die if she stays.
Either way, her choice will shatter not only her, but those who love her.
Those who need her.

Join Rune as she walks through the world of her creation. She'll find old faces and new enemies, will uncover bitter secrets, and will have to fight horror without her monster or her crew.

She will come to understand quickly that torture and despair are the rule, and that tiny silver threads of hope are all that keep Skyll from plunging over the edge to be lost forever in the black depths of hell.

Tentative release date--early September 2015

The Witch's Daughter, book 7, coming soon for preorder!

In spite of what the meter says, the book is not finished. I'm not sure how far over 70000 words it'll go, but I'll keep updating and will let you guys know when I've reached the end and am beginning edits.

Also...I wrote the first chapter of the new series last night. I'm still feeling it out, but I have hopes for it. When I'm farther into it I'll give more details and post some excerpts.

This morning, before I got out of bed, I got a pad and pen and began to map out the idea I've had for a new series.
Not that I'd stop writing Rune and Shiv Crew, but an author can do two different series, right? :)
It's in the very, very early stages, so I don't want to say too much about it.
Right now, I'm thinking it'll be less dark than the RA series, and the characters will be younger. Of course, when I actually start writing the story, it might turn out darker than I'd believed it would.
I have the name of the heroine, but that's another thing I'll tell you guys about when I'm a little closer to writing the books.

As for book seven of the Rune Alexander series...
are you keeping an eye on the meter in the left sidebar?
It's getting closer to being finished. The meter is not exact--I have no idea how many words I'll really have when the book is finished, but it's going to be longer than Wormwood Echoes.

One thing I can say about book seven--it's an ending and a beginning.
