Update: It still doesn't have a release date.

Question: is this book ever going to be published? Has it been published and this page not loaded? Has the author quit this project? We'll probably never know. It's the mystery of the unpublished novel, unfolding right before our very eyes.

Asian-inspired fantasy series by Wintersong author S. Jae-Jones. Inspired by girl-centric narratives like Sailor Moon, four girls must combine their elemental magic to defeat a growing evil and restore the rightful heir to the throne.
It's *sniffles* it's happening! Finally girl super hero power is hitting. I knew it had to come eventually. As long as it's "inspired" and not Sailor Moon fanfic.

So I’m really confused. This was a book I was really excited to read two years ago, and it never came out. Does anyone know if it was put on hold or if the writer or publishing company dropped the project?
