Hello, dear readers! Just a little writing update for you. I have recently finished draft 2 of Weaver’s Stone book 3 (or Chrysolin Heart, as we know it!), and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Working on this draft included reading through the book in its entirety for the first time, and I am SO thrilled with how it turned out, I’m just dying to share it with all of you!
I’m going to be honest here. Writing draft 1 was…difficult. It felt like a fight the entire time, which was a first for me. Sure, every book has had its challenging passages, but this time almost the whole book felt like an immovable brick wall that I had to chip away at bit by bit. But, all that to say, editing it has so far been a pleasure and gone very smoothly, even the parts that needed some rewriting and rethinking. Definitely thanking my past self for all that hard work the first time around! I feel like, while being the most challenging book I’ve written, it has come out the best for it. It also cranks up the level of epicness big time from previous installments, so get ready for an adventure!
I don’t have a concrete estimate yet for when the book will be finished. I plan to start draft 3 next week, then have my husband/alpha reader give it a spin and hear his take on it. It’s possible it will be ready sometime during the winter, or and if not I’m hoping for spring. I will keep you posted!
Also—I mentioned this briefly on Instagram a while back—I have written informal recaps for books 1 and 2, since, let’s be honest, it has taken me rather a long time to get book 3 to you (thank you for your patience!). I plan to make them available closer to the release of Chrysolin Heart. They will, of course, be teeming with spoilers, but I hope they will serve as a helpful reminder of the events of Weaver’s Stone and Galreyva’s Heir for those who have already enjoyed them. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to read these books, now is the perfect time! I’m currently running a free Kindle sale for book 1, so you can download the Weaver’s Stone eBook for free now through November 13th, right here! Both books are of course also available in paperback. Happy reading to you!
For those awaiting book 3, thank you once again for your patience! I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my stories with you, and I trust you won’t be disappointed!
