I’ve been fighting this for a while, but as Resonance quickly approaches the final word count of the previous two books, there’s no denying it any longer—there needs to be a fourth book.
This novel is about characters making themselves whole and finding their place in the traumatized universe Suture ended with. Those themes are starkly at odds with a large part of the remaining narrative which deserves only one title; Ragnarok.
My plan was to end The Bleeding Worlds with book three so I could move on to new stories. But I also promised myself, and all of you amazing readers, I would deliver the end the series deserves. In order to do that, and not make you all wait another six months, it only makes sense to let Resonance tell its own story and leave the rest for a fourth novel.
I hope you welcome this news with “That’s great, more to read!” as opposed to “I wish he’d just wrap this crap up.” I suppose the answer won’t be clear until you’ve all had the chance to read Resonance. I’m working toward an October release date. Yes, it’s later than I wanted. But I hope the extra time will produce an even better product.
Thank you all for continuing to support the series and being patient with me. I’ll have tangible results soon.
All the best,
