Stonehell 2 Update

It has been awhile since I posted anything here regarding the progress of Stonehell 2 (or about anything else for that matter). Most of the status reports have been shared via the Stonehell Facebook page and the Google+ page, but I’ve let the blog go fallow. My apologies for that to everyone who chooses to avoid social media. Let me correct my error.

The manuscript and maps for Stonehell 2 are finished and the book is in rough layout. After a couple of editing passes by myself, the book is now in the hands of an outside editor for a final editing and proofing pass. Once this is complete and the last corrections are implemented, I’ll be ready to move the book into the final layout phase in preparation for getting a printer’s proof.

I’m expecting to have all the art by the end of April, and using May to do the layout and proofing of the book. If things go according to plan, I intend to have Stonehell 2 out in the first weekend of June to coincide with NTRPG Con. I’ll have copies in hand down in Texas and the book and PDF will be available through the usual venues.

Needless to say, I’m anxiously looking forward to getting the sequel out into the wild, bringing a project with began five years ago to a long-overdue conclusion. I hate leaving things unfinished and I’m ecstatic Stonehell has defied the obstacles and reached the end of its journey. As we get closer to the finish line, I’ll post here again to keep you up to date on the status of the sequel.

Let me once again extend my thanks for your patience and support, and I hope you enjoy the final Stonehell book as much as the first.

Great news! The first book is so much fun. I'm eagerly awaiting the second.
