I’m surprised to realize I’m not as eager for the book to publish as I was for the first two. It’s not that I don’t think it’s good – I think it’s my best book yet – but when it publishes it will mark the conclusion of the series. I’ve grown very fond of the characters. They’ve lived with me for years now. Saying goodbye to them is definitely bitter-sweet.
More than a few readers have emailed asking me if this really is the end. The answer is yes…for now. The Iron Elves had a beginning, a middle, and now an end. Will I ever come back to them some day? It’s possible. Maybe another book, a series, or perhaps a short story or graphic novel. For the time being, however, this will be their last adventure for some time, and when you read Ashes of a Black Frost I think you’ll agree, they need some R&R after what I put them through.
