Ever since releasing The Deadbringer in 2016, I have been thinking about its sequel and what it means, both for me and for the world of the Ellderet. As that sequel, The Faceless God, took shape following the release of the prequel novella To Nurture & Kill in 2017, it grew and changed, and went places I hadn’t expected. While I originally expected to publish this year, after a lot of thought, I’ve decided to push the release of The Faceless God to 2020.
So, will the wait be worth it? Yes! The patience that you readers have been kind enough to show me hasn’t been wasted. I’ve been using this time to further explore the world of the Ellderet and to grow professionally as an author. The time not spent typing away at the keyboard has been used exploring the many characters, their voices, and the world they live in. And those voices — each of them has their own story to tell, even the stubborn ones . . .
