Thank you. I am trying to get South Coast now. I will also try to get the other tales from the Lammas wood; I cannot wait for the Ravenwood sequel. I thought it ended quite well I was surprised to have a sequel. That book warmed and cheered me well. ...
I need to finish writing it first. I had hoped to finish it before November, but that's not working out so well. I'm about 20k in but I need to put it down to do another project. Look for Cape Grace sometime early in 2012.
How long until the new South Coast will be on Podiobooks?
The South Coast sequel is in my wordprocessor now. The sequel to Ravenwood is on deck right behind it. And there's a new Ishmael Wang series in the works for sometime in 2012. :D
