So, book 2 of the Auran Chronicles is officially called…
For those of you who’ve read Message Bearer you’ll know what this refers to, but in summary, the Consensus is basically the Observer-based reality that forms the core of the magic system of the Auran Chronicles, and if it’s breaking, well, that can’t be so good, can it? 🙂
For a more detailed overview of the Consensus, see my earlier post on the Auran Chronicles magic system.
Anyway, on to the exciting bit. My new cover is ready, courtesy of Novak Illustration, and you can find it below, hope you like it.
Consensus Breaking is currently penciled in for release for May 2016.
Message Bearer is still available on its current $0.99 promo here.
A milestone reached last night – 10,000 words in the sequel to the Message Bearer. I don’t have a title for it yet, so “Book 2” will have to do for now. Message Bearer changed names about 7 times during its lifetime, including during the beta read, so I’m not losing any sleep over it just yet.
What is interesting is how easy the words are coming out for the sequel. During book 1, the story was so tricky to nail down (won’t say anymore than that – spoilers) that it was like navigating a plot minefield ensuring all the pieces aligned up correctly.
With book 2 though, this isn’t the case. I’ve got a clear end game for this one, and the way book 1 ended allowed me plenty of opportunity to reach it. In fact I think it gave me too much scope with which to attack book 2!
In summary, I’m enjoying writing book 2 immensely, my only fear now is that I won’t be able to wrap up the whole story in 3 books!
What’s the term for 4? A quadrology? 🙂
