I am in the process of edits and corrections for the book, and will be needing outside readers later this week.
Wolf of the World should be done next week, the draft at least. It will be a novella.
I got ambushed by a dark fantasy story this weekend. We’ll see how it goes. I want to get the Merchant book done before tackling anything else.
For those worried about Book 18 being the end of the Familiars, no. It is the end of a major plot arc. The series will continue.
