If no response is received, a new winner is selected and verification repeats. Come Monday we should have either a winner to announce or notification of a redraw process. And now…

Things to Come:

This concludes our current series of six raffles for signed books from the Noble Dead Saga. We thank all of you for getting involved. More raffle series will pop up in the future, but for now, Barb and J.C. will take a break… from the raffles, that is, not their writing.

MW1_usaBarb is already hard at work on the next “Mist-Torn Witches” volume. J.C. has to focus on his new “Tale” that is behind schedule (mixed in with more web work needed on our sites and social satellites). Not too far into the future, both must dive into the next volume in the Noble Dead Saga (Series 3, Book 4) after the one already in the pipeline for next January. Yes, they have to work that far ahead.

Some of the saga’s structure has changed from past plans. Four series were originally planned with 6, 3, 3, & 3 books each. Not that this matters for what you see on bookstore shelves (real or online). We will simple keep on with series 3 into six books instead. The count of books is the same overall, and the saga will conclude with Series 3, Book 6… if all goes according to plan.

Oh, and yes the title for S3B3 is still up in the air. We will certainly tell you once it has been settled.

We will keep you informed on all projects as they progress, and thank you as well for following our ongoing news from and There is more to come soon!
