The Echoed Realm Release Date Change

Happy New Year!!!!

Sadly, I don’t think much will be changing just because 2020 is over, but nonetheless, I hope this new year brings you all a much needed respite and sorely needed joy!

Unfortunately, I do have some disappointing news regarding the release date of The Echoed Realm, the sequel to The Hollow Gods. There is a slight delay in the anticipated production time for The Echoed Realm. Due to pretty much all the circumstances that come with being a hair’s breadth away from the apocalypse, things have been moving along slower than usual, and this has cut into my publisher’s time frame for taking advantage of important marketing and publicity opportunities. Unfortunately, most traditional publicity outlets have strict timelines for when books need to be submitted to them for consideration. To ensure we don’t miss out on these opportunities, my publisher and I have collectively decided to push the release date of The Echoed Realm from June 8, 2021 to August 10, 2021.

This two month extension will give the publisher the chance to pursue marketing opportunities with outlets that typically require finished books to be submitted four months prior to release. I know that for those of you who have been looking forward to the release of this book for nearly a year, this is disappointing news, BUT there is a silver lining!

Electronic advanced readers copies will still be available on the same schedule. That is to say that for everyone who is eagerly awaiting to review the book prior to release, there will be no change in how quickly you can access the eARC. Of course, those of you who have already pre-ordered the book are also welcome to eARCs! If you would like to sign up for an eARC in exchange for an honest review, please feel free to contact me through my contact form or through any of my social media pages. You can also keep an eye on NetGalley, where you will be able to request an eARC!

With the current timeline, I am expecting eARCs to be available some time in March! Keep your eyes peeled!

In other news: Stay tuned for a much overdue mid-winter Halloween story featuring Kai in all his drunk glory, coming next Tuesday, January 12th in The Harbinger and on my blog.

About The Echoed Realm

Miya’s world ended in Black Hollow.

It’s been three years since the Dreamwalker upended her life and left her with a heavy burden. A fledgling to the ethereal realm, Miya stumbles into the nightmares of those haunted by spectres. Little does she know, one of them is coming for her, clutching a dark secret abreast.

Kai has found a new purpose with his companion, but the price is his freedom. Bound and beholden to Miya, he struggles to adjust to his new role as her vanguard.

Meanwhile, Mason discovers he may be a pawn trapped in a web of schemes. Was his time in Black Hollow an accident, or was it only the beginning of some greater machination?   

As Black Hollow’s bloody stain spreads beyond its wooded borders, Miya fights to evade a past she barely understands. The Dreamwalker’s legacy is a vise grip, and it isn’t letting go. Primordial horrors draw near, fables come alive, and long-buried histories rise from the grave, ready to hunt.

Sharpen your claws and bloody your teeth. There’s fear to be sown.

    If it helps you get better publicity for the book, I can wait…I think! Well I will try but I’m desperate. Best of luck hon you deserve it, the best fantasy I have read in a very long time!

      Thank you for always being so supportive! Honestly it was a tough call but I do think it’s for the best. Two months will fly by, and hopefully eARCs will be a salve! <3 <3 <3
