I know! I know! I know!
The Monk's Grimoire is coming!
No. I don't have a date.
Yes. I'm excited, too! What's the hold up? Well, that's not an easy answer. A lot goes into putting out a book. It is written and it has been for a while, but we had some other priorities at the end of the year. I do still have a "real job" and it was taking a good chunk of my attention. My publisher had some other irons in the fire too. It happens.
The good news is, we are moving forward! The editor is working on it now and I will get corrections to work out and will do a couple more reads to make sure I don't mess anything up when I make edits. During all that, we have a cover artist who does the book-cover design. I have provided a few ideas for the symbol, but we'll make a final decision once we see a few mockups from the cover artist. The publisher and I are working on the cover copy - aka "the blurb".
Once all of that is done then the publisher will set the release date and I'll send out ARCs to my trusted readers for feedback and to get some early reviews to promote the book. We'll do a pre-release so everyone can order the book in advance, and it will be magically delivered to your Kindle or eReader on release date.
Now having said that, you might be wondering, "What can I do to help?" (Because I know how generous you are and that you want to be a part of The Veritas Codex Team - you little Truthseeker, you!) Here you go:
If you haven't already, read all the books (including the novella included in Christmas Tapestry).
If you haven't already, review all the books (including Christmas Tapestry.) We are almost to 100 on The Veritas Codex, but The Jaguar Queen hasn't made it to 25 and The Alien Accord has less than 20. More is better, and all the stars are VERY MUCH appreciated!

Be patient! It'll be worth it.
So, having said all that, I do want to share that I just finished another book in the series. You might have heard me say that I don't write my books in order. The one I just finished will be 6th in order.
And since this a new year, I have started writing a NEW BOOK! Yes, Truthseekers! This new one is intended for much later in the series. Where it falls depends on what else I write between now and then.
