Of course, once this second book in the duology has been edited and signed off, it's on to something new and seeing if I can get that picked up and published...not nerve-racking at all to go back and do the submissions process all over again.

But now you are published and have an agent(?) and everything it should be easier.....

I don't have an agent at the moment - my previous agent took a step back from it all a few months back. Hopefully having two previously published novels will help getting another though, when I have a finished manuscript for another book.

If you can talk about (if you'd prefer not to, no worries!) how have your books been doing? Did The Traitor God earn out? Also, I've got a spot reserved for reviewing The God of Broken Things at The Fantasy Hive, so when you have an ARC available, send it my way!

Well, a publisher based in Hungary and one in the Czech Republic bought translation rights (it comes off your advance) so yep, already earned out. As for numbers sold, you usually get a statement twice a year, covering Jan-June and July-Dec. As my book was published at the start of June...yeah, I don't have many details. but pretty good as far as I can see.

That's ace about the review slot! As soon as they have an ARC I'll get them to send one your way.

That's awesome. I see no reason another agent wouldn't jump at the chance to represent your next project.

Looking forward to it!

Aw, you are a star @ScarletBea :)  Four weeks to go now! Eep. After that I'm back in the wilderness of publishing. I need to finish off this new thing soon.
