The answer to the length of fantasy stories has always been to break them up into smaller, more digestible elements. Lord of the Rings is really one story published in three volumes, not three books. There's a fine difference.
That's how I am approaching my epic fantasy The Unfinished Song. I could publish a 400,000 word ebook, but I thought it would be more delectable to parcel it out in delicious snack sized bites of epic.
That also means, however, a rather grueling publishing schedule of one book out every two months--yikes!--good for readers, but definitely a schedule to keep me on my toes. There are revisions and edits and ARCs, oh my!
All of this is a lot of throat-clearing for the Big Reveal of the cover art for the second book in the series, Taboo. Out in March, fingers crossed! (Curse you, revisions!) So without further ado, here it is:
Yes, it will also be available in trade paperback, starting in April. Book Three, The Unfinished Song: Sacrifice will be out in May.
