In case you haven't heard yet, my next release drops this coming Saturday. Prodigal Son, Lean Dogs Legacy Book Three, arrives on 12/15, and you can pre-order it here.
After that, the next release will be Dragon Slayer, Sons of Rome Book Three, which I'll be working on for the next few weeks. As it stands now, the novel is 623 paperback pages, and currently 202k words...though both of those numbers will increase greatly in the days ahead. This is going to be a big book! And not only do I think that's okay, but it's also necessary.
It's okay because, at the end of the day, this is one chapter in a fantasy saga, and as a lifelong fantasy reader, I can tell you it's not uncommon for books to wind up 700 to 1,000 pages long. Weaving a tapestry requires many threads, and the weaving takes time.
