It joins The Ghost and the Volcano, and Tethered to the Sky, as short stories now available on Kindle. The next two books, Wanderers and Ion are both making progress, and are both past the 75% mark. I'm trying to have both of them out before mid-2020.

Wanderers is Book II in the series, but in the timeline it follows Ethos, and concentrates on the Metro family during the children's adolescent years, as tumultuous events cause them to move repeatedly from one home to another. Writing a book that falls into a slot in a larger timeline is a difficult task. The endpoint is known (if you have read the other books). Can you still surprise the reader? Hopefully the answer is yes.

Ion is Book VI in the series, and falls at the end of the timeline, which presents a very different challenge: After becoming so attached to the characters, and the evolving plot line, how do you bring things to a close? And what has the mystical child from Defender evolved into as an adult? The cover art for Ion is complete, and has been posted to The Republic of Dreams on Facebook.
