When I proposed the concept to the publisher, the senior editor had her doubts that he could pull it off. I never doubted, and sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, Ural Akyuz has hit another home run. I cannot say enough about his artistic abilities.
Now that the cover art is complete, Ural’s next endeavor will be some new art for my swag. If you love Dragons, then you will not be left wanting.
As far as the release of Shades of Virtue is concerned, the actual date has not been nailed down yet by Twilight Times Books, but I’m still hopeful for an end of summer or early fall release. Trust me, I am just as frustrated as you are, but sometimes that is how things roll in this industry. If you enjoyed Shadows of Kings, I promise the wait will be worth it.
The third book, Shards of Malice is almost complete. I am just putting on the finishing touches. In the months to come, there will be an announcement about a new series related to my Avalla universe.
That wraps things up for now. I hope you like the cover of the second installment of the Dragon Rising series.
