I know this is late, but at least its here now ha ha. TSH 3 will be having a new name (since it would appear that the name I mentioned back in Dec is already in use). The Sage of Hytrae Book 3 will be known as “The Sorcerer’s Gamble”! This was the previous working title I had for the project, and so I feel it is a good fit.
I have also been working on cover art for The Sorcerer’s Gamble, but it is still to early to share. The book itself will be released this summer, I need to set a date or I’ll never finish, and so I will be also announcing a release date today!
The Sorcerer’s gamble will be released June 26th! This will be the climatic conclusion of The Sage of Hytrae trilogy, mark your calendars the wait is nearly over!
My plan is to have the first draft finished by Easter this year (April 1st and this is no joke), and put it through the normal revision process I have used before (I think book 1 and 2 both had no less than 7 revs before release). I plan to get a version of the cover art out for everyone to see in April as well. Plus I will be going to more regular updates again starting this week (since this is the first post). Be sure to check back here on Fridays to see the most up to date announcements concerning TSH and other projects I’m working on!
Just wanted to make sure I got in with everyone before it got to late in the month. I have been busy working on Book 3 in The Sage of Hytrae trilogy. Sadly I’ve not decided on a name yet, normally one becomes apparent to me around where I am in writing it though so I might be back soon with a name 🙂
Soon after I get the first draft done I will be getting the new artwork worked out, which will include a new banner on christopherjhillger.com at the least, maybe another site overhaul but I do seem to like the current layout right now. Exciting things either way, I will be updating some of the other pages on the site in the coming weeks and months as well. The more I write and develop this wonderful world the more I want to share. While this story will be concluded in the book I am writing, I do not believe that is the only tale Hytrae has for us. More to come in both departments.
I hope everyone is having a safe and warm January!
I am sorry that I have been pretty quiet lately. Life is getting busier as I’m sure it is with everyone around this time of year. I have been making progress on the final installment in The Sage of Hytrae trilogy. I’m hoping to release the final name for book 3 in or before January, with a synopsis soon after. Just finding the time to buckle down will be the biggest factor in getting this third book out to everyone. Thank you all again for the support, it would be so much harder without it! 🙂
Just wanted to make sure I hopped on and left a note of how things are going. Book three is going well, I might be ready to announce the title late this month, but it is probably going to be early next month. I’ve been sick a lot the last three weeks, so that has definitely slowed me down some. I’m hopeful to have the manuscript in proof reader’s hands by mid November.
Thank you all so much for all the support during the free book promotion. After reviewing the total numbers it looks like it doubled the number of people who have my first book, which is very exciting. I hope everyone who got to pick it up enjoys it, as many of the people I’ve talked to have.
Oh! One final announcement. I am planning on being at a book signing at Peebles’ branch of Adams County Library, (that is in Ohio if you don’t know). That event should be taking place on October 15th and I’m still working on finding out a time. I will update as soon as I have more details!
Last week was a little crazy here with the free promotion of The Crystal Seal (if you missed it, the kindle edition is still available for $4.99, checkout our “Where to buy” section above for links). I believe the promotion went well, and a big thank you to everyone who supported it by downloading the book. I would like to encourage anyone who liked it to leave a review on amazon, it really helps to connect it with other readers.
As a minor note, in order to make this promotion possible I had to take The Crystal Seal off of Nook. Since Nook was super unpopular way to get the book (literally no one downloaded it form there) I don’t plan on relisting there (unless people express desire to me to release on that platform).
