Final edits for CONSUMED BY WAR

I finished the first round of edits and have half of what I’ve done back from the editor for round 2 of polishing it up.  Amidst all of this I found that I wanted to leave something more for the reader, so I added a little surprise stinger at the end that will enable a plot point for a future book or short story.  It’s nothing big, but enough that I can go back to it soon and write more.

No matter what I do to wrap up this saga I just can’t help adding a little more for anyone who has followed the series or individual entries.  Perhaps all my future books will take place in the same reality as the current series, but on its own accord.  I love planting seeds like these, but what do you feel as a reader?  Do you like to have something to look forward to if the story is closed out?  Or would you rather there be no open ends?

Artwork for the new novel

While CONSUMED BY WAR is being wrapped up, and after the teaser last month for the cover (done by Dan Pipito) of the new novel, comes some amazing sketches for the interior.  Here’s a quick teaser with more to come, but in the meantime head on over to @vaughn_casons_creations on Instagram to see some of her amazing work and more images from what she’s working on for the book.  Stay tuned for pre-order info and release date in July.

Cover Reveal: Consumed By War

IMG_0719[1]The brainstorming and writing has been incessant as of late.  Wrapping up this novel has proven to be a challenge for me because it will be the final entry in this 12 book saga.  Making it stand alone and also tie up all the unanswered questions from the previous novels is probably one of the most difficult things I’ve done, but it will be well worth the wait.  The historical and mythological tie ins for this book exceeds everything I’ve done so far and in a way that will have the reader on the edge of their seat.

That being said, here’s the cover reveal for CONSUMED BY WAR.  My brother, Dan Pipito, did the art and came up with the concept for this.  Be sure to follow him @dpipito or check out his children’s art @pintsizedpages.

Let me know what you think.
