Burn, Mirror, and other Valkanas stories

I know I announced that Burn would be published soon–so let me get more specific about where it is in the process:

  • The main writing is done
  • The big picture revising is done
  • The cover art is done (that’s what you see here–cool, right? Thanks Jason!)
  • It’s currently with my editor getting a final round of changes

My goal is to publish it before Christmas, but since I’m depending on the editor’s timeline right now that isn’t a certain thing.

In the meantime, I’ve been working on book 3 of the series–and I went back and revised Mirror.

What? you say. But Mirror is already published. Why revise it?

Well, after I finished this book, I went back and realized there were things I wanted to change in Mirror. Most of them were small stylistic changes–excessive wordiness in a few patches that drove me bonkers every time I thought about it. I also wanted to make the links to Burn clearer, which meant revising the final scene. And I wanted to add chapters from Burn to the end of Mirror as a preview of the next book in the series.

Here’s where you all come in though. I can either publish the revised Mirror first, with the prequel of Burn, and then put Burn out once it’s finished with editing, or I can release the revised Mirror and Burn on the same day.

Either way, I plan on putting Mirror up for a free day promptly so that those of you who have a paid copy can get the revision for free.
