Just so you know…

Amazon is offering the new Arena hardcover for 50% off right now. What a deal!

And sorry for being MIA these last few months. I don’t know where the time goes. Whoosh! and another year has passed.

Am I hard at work on the next book? Alas, only if it’s to be the ongoing chaos that my office has become. Really, I will get things cleared up, but it seems we’re always off to something — hiking in a special canyon, rarely used on the day we go — where Rocky can run free and does. I’ve also been doing a lot of reading when time permits. I have stacks of books around me now that I’ve had for years and haven’t read. So there’s that, and of course, I have my current work in-not-progress. That needs to change as well, and I’m hoping–praying– it will. Also hoping I can get back to blogging on a regular basis again…

Hopefully next time I won’t have to rummage through all the stuff that has somehow exploded in my office…

    Thanks for the update. Whenever I think of you, I pray for you. Whatever is going on in your personal life. And selfishly — for your writing. I have loved almost every book you’ve published. And I keep thinking I read (or did I only imagine it) that the work-not-in-progress is a story that links Arena to the Light of Eden series. Or did that book get set aside and your WIP is something new and different? If it DOES link things, I am SO very curious.

    Anyway, thanks again for the update. I’ll keep praying.

    I bought it and it arrived today!!

    A bunch of years ago, you sent out some autographed stickers to put in books. My original copy of Arena has one! Do you still do that? I’d love to have an autographed 20th anniversary edition.

    I hope you know you’re appreciated! I’ve missed reading new things from you but I’ve made up for it by wearing out the other books.

      Hi Dave,

      So glad to hear you’ve purchased the new printing of Arena! And yes, I can probably send you an autographed sticker for the 20th anniversary edition. (I say probably because my office is a chaotic mess at the moment. So I may have to go find some stickers to purchase. I’ll let you know when and if I do.

    I’m so glad that you have republished Arena, and I’ve bought it, even though I still have my old copy. Do you expect to re-publish The Legend of the Guardian King series? I’m so sad that it is no longer available to purchase on Kindle or even paperback. I always used to recommend it, but now I can’t.

      Hi Michelle — Thanks for taking the time to email me. I’m delighted to know you have purchased the republished Arena, and are looking forward the Guardian King series to come out as well. Enclave, my new publisher, does indeed intend to published the series. I don’t yet know the publishing date, but will try to update my readers on my blog and website when the promise becomes reality.

        That is great news! I can’t wait! Let us know when it happens. And if you want to write some new books, we’ll be ready and waiting.
