WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS
by P. C. Darkcliff
Please welcome P. C. Darkcliff, Author of the newly released Wizard's Blade, First Book of the series, The Magic Circle. He pulled me out of a bind this week when my Author backed out last minute. Thanks P.C.
What The Future Holds
So, 2023 has barreled in, and what a year it will be!
While 2022 was a dull transition year of wrapping up one series and drafting another, I’m pretty pumped up about the wicked stuff I plan for this year.
It might sound crazy, but I’m going to unleash the first three books of my new series, The Magic Circle, over the next six months. Since each is about 120k words, it’s scary and stressful but incredibly exciting—and I worked my ass off throughout last year to make it happen.
The first installment, The Wizard’s Blade, is already out, and it’s getting some pretty cool feedback. Unfortunately, the sales haven’t been good so far. It was to be expected, though: since it’s my first epic fantasy project, I’m a new, unknown writer when it comes to that genre.
I’m stuffing the books with lots of magic, battles, monsters, and all the other juicy stuff epic fantasy readers like, so let’s hope the series will take off… one day.
I’m now working on the third draft of the sequel, The Dragon’s Eye, which I’m publishing at the end of March. (Click cover to pre-order)
The third book—which is also already drafted—will follow in June or July, if everything goes well. The final title is The Traitor’s Spell.
So, these are my plans for 2023.
Wish me good luck. I wish you the same.
