So now that Orion’s Kiss is out and about, what’s next for the Tales of the Aekhartain?
- SING TO ME: This is a f/f romantic novella starring Freyda and Dóma, both of whom were seen in Orion’s Kiss. This is my current project, and I’ve just finished it! It’s now 25K words. Now all I need to do is edit it up and release it for FREE on Smashwords. This is my first attempt at f/f romance though, so there may be some hiccups in the editing process. ETA: Mid-March 2014
- DEMERO’S TALE (title to be decided): This collection will contain the stories Jealousy’s Shadow and Unbound and Free, both rewritten, as well as at least one more new story. Demero is one of the oldest Aekhartain characters and this collection will take place around 500 AD, telling his story from when he was a young child to when he finally finds his feet as an Aekh. I don’t know how long it will be, but I doubt it will come in below 50K. Tentative ETA: Late Spring/Early Summer 2014
- CRUSADES OF DARKNESS (title subject to change): Nawaquí’s tale. If you don’t know who he is yet, I won’t spoil it for you. This collection will contain Crusades of Darkness, Letters from the Dark and Dark Words, all rewritten and thoroughly edited, as well as at least one totally new story. The setting will probably be around 1000 AD. Tentative ETA: Autumn 2014
- WINTERS CHILL: Want to know more about Beatrice Winters? Well, this will tell you all you need to know and more. This collection will contain Winter’s Chill and Darkest Night, both rewritten, as well as at least two all new tales. Tentative ETA: Winter 2014
Depending entirely on how well Sing to Me does, there’s a high chance I’ll release more short tales for free between each of the longer stories. I’ll announce them and add them to the list as and when the inspiration strikes.
After that it’ll probably be up for grabs as to who comes next. Alamé’s tale, perhaps? Maybe Dóma. Theiran and Anna will definitely get their chance before long. After that, well, there’s rather a lot to choose from. One thing’s certain: I won’t run out of rewrite material any time soon.
Are you an old reader of my stories? Is there one you remember that you’d like to see again? Are you new? Has someone caught your eye and you’d like to know more? Well, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
