I've been working diligently on the basic outline of the manuscript, and have an overall idea of the direction. Currently, I've completed 10 chapters in the first draft, and probably have about 20 more to go. I'm really excited about this book, and the direction of these characters. There are going to be some really emotional parts of this book.
As far as the cover, I've sent in the written description of what I'm looking for over to the cover illustrator. I hope to have a final version complete by the end of the summer, and will be doing a cover reveal probably sometime in September or October. It should be a really cool design.
I will send out further updates as the book progresses. We are looking at July 2016 for a release date for Sonora, and the Minotaur of the Maze!
