The Monk’s Habit – Now in Editing

I’m making good progress on The Monk’s Habit. I’ve sent it to my editor. I have just gotten the new cover. The device for The Monk’s Habit is something you will find in the book. The crown pin on The Disinherited Prince cover didn’t show up in that story. Now that the draft of the second volume is in someone else’s hands I can begin on Book Three.  The working title for the third adventure is A Sip of Magic, A Taste of the Blade.  That comes from the way Pol uses magic as a pattern-master.

Monk’s Habit Progress

I finished the first draft and the story came out just fine. I’m now in edit mode and have tweaked the ending and am going through my normal rewrite process. When the draft is done, I like to let it settle a few days and begin to bring the next book into focus. The working title of Book Three is A Sip of Magic, A Taste of the Sword. I know, I know it’s a bit long, but it is what Pol does as a pattern-master.

I intended on having Pol spend a few years in the monastery after each major adventure, but that’s not working out. Pol will just have to remain precocious for a few more books.

I’m anticipating a mid-October release for The Monk’s Habit.
