Hail Gentiles All:

It is my honor and my pleasure to announce to you that Dragon Prophecy Book II: Blade of Empire has been delivered to Tor Books. At the moment it is 161,000 words long. We'll see how many of those words make it into the finished book.

In other news, I'm 20,000 words into Scourge of Fate (aka Dragon Prophecy III) so you shouldn't have quite as long a wait for the next one.

that is great news!

I am so glad it is done but I wish there was a way to hurry along Tor... :) I just finished the first book and I cannot wait to see what happens next!

Yay! How long do you think it will take for that to get to us?

You mentioned that Crown of Vengeance had about 1000 pages cut from it at Tor's demand. Could you roughly give us the original length and the cut length of Crown of Vengeance in word count? Or alternatively could you give us the rough number of pages that Blade of Empire is? Just for comparison and to possibly see how much might end up getting cut. Hopefully none of it does!

I have been really excited since the first time I read this, and I have been in a good mood since. I am surprised no one heard me a few states over. Hopefully it comes out this fall. Fingers Crossed.

Thank you for posting this.

Quoting and paraphrasing Lewis Carroll here, because I can't say it any better!

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
"She" chortled in "her" joy.

I'll be JOYFUL whenever each of the books are available, but of course I hope for sooner rather than later!

I love reading your books. The stories are rich in detail and characters have depth. I admit that I had a little nerd rage moment in the bookstore when I asked if the book had been released. The clerk seized the opportunity to crush my hopes in one fell swoop. I was stunned with disbelief. She laughed and suggested another book in the meantime. I found this site instead. Thank you for the tidbit. It will keep my impatience at bay for awhile longer and adds to my anticipation.
