It is indeed that time! As promised, the official cover for The Clouds of Escalion. This one was painted by myself and Phanuchanat Charoensap, who you may remember from the A Cloak of Glass cover. She and I painted this one together over several months, bouncing it back and forth across the internet.
The Clouds of Escalion is of course the sequel to my first novel, Children of the Crater, which was released in 2014.
Escalion is all but done; I am about two thirds of the way through the final proof read before it is sent off to Magic Oxygen for formatting and printing. And of course, this coming March you folks will be able to read it for yourselves. Who is that mysterious girl on the cover? All will be made clear.
You heard that right!
In March 2016, there will be a new book on the shelves with my name on it-
The Clouds of Escalion, the long-teased sequel to 2014’s Children of the Crater.
She could sense it, out there in the greater world. A power so large and horrific it sent chills down her spine to even think of it. It was manifold darkness, two faces that screamed into the night as they awoke. She could almost feel the storm brewing on that distant horizon, the clouds blacking out the stars one by one.
I will be officially unveiling the cover of my new dystopian adventure right here on Cadellin.net next Saturday (24th October); Phanuchanat and I have worked many a long hour on it. For now here is a poster to keep you salivating.
For a long time, the progress bars on cadellin.net have featured a project simply marked “????” which I am pleased to announce has in fact been The Clouds of Escalion in disguise. The text is pretty much finished; I got it back from Magic Oxygen’s wonderful editor Izzy recently and I am in the midst of the final proof read. I started writing this one back in April 2014, just before the launch of Children of the Crater, and I think it really benefitted from the additional experience I had by that point.
I hope you folks will have as much fun reading it as I had writing it!
I have a new website! My floating island of mysteries and crazy stuff is now located at cadellin.net
If you are already here, welcome to the new site! I have some big announcements to make regarding future book launches, which you can expect on Saturday the 17th of October. Exciting, eh?
Write it in your calendar. Or your almanac. Or whatever it is that people measure their days with in this century.
