I had a wish for Christmas, that Sins of the Father, Book Three of the Song of the Elves saga, would be ready for a Yuletide release. Yet again I’ve dug myself in to a hole with promising something I cannot deliver (something similar happened with The King’s Blades). I’m going to move the relase of the novel back by a few weeks, to allow myself the time to do a final edit of the book. It will definitely be in your hands by Easter…
Sins of the Father is a large manuscript, almost as long as Books 1 & 2 put together, and as such there is quiet a lot of tidying up to be done. I had hoped that my last edit would be it, but on reading the paperback proof there are several elements that I’m not happy with. I will never release anything for purchase that is less than professional – you, my readers, deserve the best.
So, following a seasonal sojourn, I wil be launching back into the manuscript to iron out a few kinks. Rest assured, the wait will be worth it!
I would like to finish by wishing all my readers a very merry Christmas. You have made 2011 an exciting and rewarding time for all at SOTE HQ.
Until next time, up the elves!
