In progress: The Oconic Prison

Now that Once Called Magic is out in the wild, I’ve been busy with stories that follow it up.

In between Once Called Magic and the forthcoming Oconic Gates 2 book (as yet untitled), I’m finishing up a novella that is tentatively titled The Oconic Prison.

It follows Caster-Sergeant Vellar’s attempt to stage a daring prison break. Of course, the prison isn’t an ordinary prison. The prisoner is no ordinary inmate. Meanwhile, Vellar doesn’t know if he can trust the people he’s working with.

Given a fair wind (and no distractions), this one should be ready by June.

After that, I’ll get back to editing the second full-length book in the Oconic Gates series, which continues the adventures of Lokke de Calvas and Ember Cobb.
