I have been telling everyone for some time now that Book 2 of the Rachaya Series has been written. This has never been a lie, and in fact it has already gone through a rigorous round of beta testing. Unfortunately, though, I was never entirely happy with the book and I wasn't going to send it out into the world in the state that it was in. Once Fyrebyrne Island had been published I was able to find the time I needed to reassess Book 2 and properly give it the love and attention that it deserves.
I am pleased to be able to announce that Book 2 is not absolutely complete. I have spent just over a month wrestling with all of the difficult scenes that were so poorly written the first time around. In a couple of weeks I will give it one last editorial sweep before sending it back off to my wonderful beta readers. After that it is off to the editor to be primped and preened. I am still well on track for an end of year/ start of new year release (this will depend on the availability of my editor, which is up in the air at the moment and out of my control).
Thank you to those of you who have read and enjoyed Book 1 - Fyrebyrne Island so far. I don't have the words to express how wonderful it is to see my book out in the world and in so many hands.
