I've been hard at work on the final edits for Stormdrake and am very happy to announce that the last of the editing is done!!! Now all that's left is the publishing as the novel is made presentable into a suitable book. This is always a nervewracking part of the process for me, because there isn't much left for a writer to do. I keep looking at the cover and trying to picture what the finished ebook will look like. The thought of it makes me feel really excited, because I'm sure it's going to turn out to be absolutely beautiful.

I am looking forward so much to sharing this series with all of you, and to get this first book in The Dragon Mage Chronicles out there at last. If you enjoyed The Magician's Apprentice, I'm sure you'll enjoy this newest book as well. The characters of Jander and Andrei and Gabrielle are very dear to my heart, and the journey they're undertaking is beyond anything I could have anticipated when I first sat down to write about them all of those years ago.

If you're unfamiliar with the series and would like to learn more about it, you can find more info here: jajaken.com/novels/dragonmagechronicles.htm

I'm also in the initial stages of creating a mailing list for those of you who might be interested, to keep you informed via email about future book releases. Stay tuned and I'll share that information with you just as soon as I know more about it.

I hope you're all having a lovely new year!
