First off, thanks for all the fan mail. I love the new distribution available through Amazon because I have gotten responses from all over the world including places I didn’t even realize I was published, like Indonesia. It’s kind of funny, not a lot of social media stuff, more personal like direct email, and I must say I enjoy it that way.
I have had a number of queries about the upcoming release of The Sjöfn Academy, and all I can say is that I promise it is on the way. The book itself is complete; I’m just obsessing over the cover. And I’m doing this for a number of reasons. First, I really loved the cover of The Dragon’s Lover, and I would like to keep it consistent within that theme and look. Second, I have learned the hard way that good cover art is CRUCIAL to the success of a book, especially when trying to communicate what it is really about. I mean, it wasn’t that difficult to figure out what was going to happen in The Dragon’s Lover from looking at the two women, and it communicated the genre without really having to explicitly state anything.
And finally, I feel The Sjöfn Academy is a very special book. It is really unlike anything I have ever read and I have no doubt that fans of the series will be blown away. So I want things to be perfect. So bear with me, have a little patience, and I promise that you will not be disappointed in any way!
