Kiah,

Thanks so much for your interest in Book 2, aka Mardan's Anointed. I've been working super hard on it (for too long), and I plan to launch it late this summer. Meanwhile, I hope you've had the opportunity to read the companion novella to Book 1 called Healer's Curse. Did you wonder what was happening back home in Northern Marst after Srilani and her siblings were kidnapped? There's plenty of palace intrigue going on, and you'll learn more about some of the characters who will be important for the rest of the series.

Also, Mardan's Mark has a new cover that is supposed to be "live" on Amazon on April 5. We will see if they get it up on their site on schedule. After that, Healer's Curse will get a gorgeous cover in the same style leading up to the big cover reveal for Mardan's Anointed.

I'm so happy you enjoyed Mardan's Mark. That's a huge encouragement.

Beware of pirates!

Jojo, You are a bookreading machine! I am in awe. By the way, I've been meaning to ask which software you're using to create your book trailers.

Ironically, my middle school daughter is creating a trailer in Windows Movie Maker for Huckleberry Finn today.
