A New Look
You've probably already noticed, but I've finally gotten a bit of new art up. A full view of the beach race can be viewed in Visual, HAVEN Concept Art section of the website. It's been nice to give my brain a break every once in a while to listen to some music and do some War of the Princes inspired artwork. There's more to come, so keep checking in. I may even do some sneak-peek art from the upcoming sequel.
Fan Made Art
Check out the Visual, Fan Art/Photography/Cosplay section of the site. A gorgeous, hand made, Haven themed necklace was sent in by an especially awesome reader. Thank you for that, Ericka, it's incredible!
Well, everyone has been asking, so I'm happy to finally be able to make a small, general announcement. Haven's sequel will be released within the first half of 2013. I can't be more specific right now, in case I'm able to get everything edited and published sooner. I worked in the video game industry for three years, and if it's one thing I've learned, it's not to commit to a release date that could compromise the quality of the project. This book may seem like it's taken a while to come out, but the reality of the situation is, I'm an independent author, I've shuffled day jobs, moved several times, and even gotten married since Haven was first released. But I'm a dreamer and a fighter, and though the road has been bumpy, there's nothing more important to me than getting this series out. Let me tell you, I couldn't be any more excited than I am. :)
I hope that January has treated you all well. Be sure to make some time in your life for an adventure. Everyone needs one or two of those.
