Book II Announcement
Or...The Dragon releases the name

Fantasy writers know, there's an old legend that you should never reveal your true name to anyone. For once an enemy (or anyone else, for that matter) learns it, he can use it in a spell to capture you, force you into your true form, and vanquish you. It's bad news all around.

Today, I throw caution to the wind and announce publicly the name of Book II of the Choices trilogy.

Choices Meant for Kings

Ooooooo. Ahhhhhhh.
It has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? I wanted to call it Choices Meant for Ring-givers, because I'm such a fiend when it comes to that Old English, Anglo-Saxon way of the world, but, alas, how DO you go about getting everyone to agree on capitalization there? And would the population in general "get it"? No.

So Choices Meant for Kings it is. Wish I could give you a release date. But we'll know that the day before it happens. Rest assured, it'll be sometime this summer. Late summer. We could make it a contest. In fact, I'll chat with DeNita over at Author Island about that contest idea...

Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

Thank you, Guys!

Jenni, you generated a couple confused e-mails from folks who now demand I send them the second book. Bwuahahahaha. They've been informed that only the elite Test Readers are so priveleged.

Now I'm looking for reviewers so I can get marketing under way! Woo-hoo!!
