Goodreads asked James L. Nelson:

What are you currently working on?

James L. Nelson Currently working on Book 3 of The Norsemen Saga. Thorgrim Night Wolf and company are still trying to get back to Norway but the gods seem to have other plans. The book is called Vík-ló, a place name that developed into the Irish town of Wicklow (as tempting as it is to think that the "Vík" is from Viking, but it's not. "Vik" means bay, and "lo" means meadow, thus "Meadow by the bay.") Vík-ló should be out in in early 2015.

I'm also doing the final editing on a new series that focuses on the exploits of Jack Biddlecomb, the son of Isaac Biddlecomb, the protagonist of my first series. The book is set in 1797 at the start of the Quasi War with France. Jack is a young merchant captain with his first command and he gets tangled up in politics and sea fighting that he hardly understands. The book is called The French Prize and will be out in June, 2015.
