In between chasing lizards with Grandson #3 and letting Grandsons 4 and 5 chase me, I have finished Flicker of the Flame! This is the second book in the Outlawed Myth series. You’ll be able to get it on Amazon March 9, and all other retailers May 20.
So here it is! I’d love to know what you think. Let me know in the comments.
What I’ve Been Writing
Most of my writing time has been spent on Sting of Power, the third in the series. But I’ve also begun a major rewrite of Flood of Fire, the fourth and final book. Many of the events in Flicker of the Flame and Sting of Power have changed the trajectory of the plot of the fourth book. One of the biggest changes was turning the male protagonist in Flicker of the Flame to female. That had an impact on some of the plot of Flood of Fire, but I feel confident is making for much better stories.
What I’ve Been Reading
I went back and re-read Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. Every time I read one of his books I’m in awe. And I finally read The Handmaid’s Tale, which deserves all the acclaim it gets. My take away from it is there’s nothing some in power won’t do to benefit themselves, no matter what impact it has on the people they are supposed to serve. Frightening.
