Update on Scylla

It’s time for an update on Book II of the Worldstrait Duology: Scylla.

Scylla has been slow going for me. Part of this is because of the infamous “second book syndrome” I’ve been hearing so much about, but the other part is that I have been suffering from a great deal of depression in the wake of my parents’ sudden death. Losing them both at the same time was a terrible blow, particularly when I was so close with them. They were a huge support pillar for me as I worked through my writing career, encouraging me every step of the way. They never got to read the finished version of Charybda, something which saddens me deeply, because I know how badly they wanted to read it. However, I am forging on with Scylla because I know that they wouldn’t want me to give up.

So, needless to say, Scylla has been a particular challenge for me. I want to get the story finished so that people can read the exciting conclusion to this two-book series. So I have been putting a ton of pressure on myself, which has done nothing to help me out.

However, I am steadily working my way through editing chapter 10, which is not quite halfway point, but is getting pretty close! I hope to have the beta version ready sometime early 2019.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already, check out my novel, Charybda. It is available for Nook, Kindle, and in Paperback. Follow the story of Nivin, a blind seventeen-year-old girl who lives in a land where all defects are punishable by death. When she is discovered and flees, she finds herself pulled into another world, where she is dragged into a centuries-long conflict between the Freemen and the wicked sorcerer Scyllorin and his dragon Bride, Scylla.
