100k for Avaelyn

So, busy, busy, BUSY! So many tasks, including translations, preparing shorts for Christmas, editing and formatting … AND writing Avaelyn. Now you understand why it has been quiet here! Avaelyn is now at 100k words and not near finished. I had intended to have the first draft done by year end, but that won’t come to pass. Not only are the characters misbehaving but this story is layered and needs a few more words (I’m already envisioning around 200k at least, which makes this book a doorstopper). Around March 2022 is when I see Avaelyn ready for publication.

Sanctum 1: Nemesis Blade

Due to a change in narrator for the Nemesis Blade‘s audiobook, I had a look at the cover (to change the name) and it occurred to me to add something missing to both the audiobook cover and the eBook. So, tweaked! Do you see the added thing?? The audiobook is now in full production, and Jez Sands will (fingers crossed!) do all 4 books 🙂

Haven’t mentioned Arcana’s NFT for a while …

… so here’s a bit of an update! The token is currently priced at $4.99 to test the waters but will be going up to over $90 in a few weeks. Grab yours today! Enjoy the read (and listen and a look at the extras), keep it as part of your NFT collection or resell later.

If you’re wondering how to buy an NFT book from BGS, here’s the lowdown over on my Writing World blog, a post dedicated to the how – it’s easier than you think, promise!!


As I’m still writing the final book in the Terra series, this cover may yet change from the pastoral (perfectly describes Avaelyn!) to something that reflects the grander story, much like Lykandir has ‘clocks’ on it to showcase the measuring. Who knows? But, for now, this is AVAELYN’s cover, and below it the four Ancient Terra books are together. Now that the cover project draws to a close, I’ll be concentrating on writing again. My hope is to have the first draft done before year end 🙂
