Well...here's the thing.
My editor emailed me last week requesting a bit more time with Duchess and because I love and trust her, and she's amazing, of course I said it was okay.
I know I'm already announcing this three days after the fact (it's been a busy week), but until further notice, the release date for Duchess of War is To Be Announced.
I have no idea when my editor is going to get back to me with the final revisions. And then it'll take me a little time to go through and make the necessary fixes before I can then make it available for you on Amazon.
But I promise that as soon as I know anything, I will post it here.
I can't wait! I know that it'll be even better for the extra time in edits. My editor really is amazing and I love her to death. And I can't wait to get Duchess to you!
Another announcement, I'll be re-releasing Of Hallowed Fiends and Darkest Fortune with a new cover, new title, and new revisions later this year, as well. Most likely shortly after the release of Duchess. Given that Duchess of War opens the morning after Hallowed Fiends' close, it would be wonderful if new readers could see what came before, as the story picks right up with no explanation of what happened the night before. I can see how this might be confusing for some.
Some have asked if I include the full version of the poem featured in Hallowed Fiends, and sadly that answer is no. They were reciting a very long poem, of epic length. While I know I could sit down and write something to satisfy that request that came in so often, I felt the focus for Duchess would best be served if it kept to the complex and evolving relationship between Anya and her Duke.
I can't wait for you to read it!
