Now that we’ve hit our first funding goal for in the Kickstarter for Turn Over the Moon, I can announce our first stretch goal: If we reach $1,500, backers will receive a free novella sequel to the novel next year, before it becomes available to the public.
This novella, which I’m currently developing, is part of the future publishing strategy for Ahn-Tarqa. The next novel I have planned doesn’t feature Belde or any of the other characters from Turn Over the Moon; it takes place on the other side of the continent in Najael (see the map above) and begins a parallel series to “The Saga of the Sorrowless” called “The Sorrow War.” The novella will let readers check in with Belde and her adventures during the gap between the novels in The Saga of the Sorrowless.
I can’t share anything more at this point except that the first Sorrow War novel is also underway with its story extensively planned out. I wish I could tell you the title of the novel and the novella, but final titles tend to come late in writing for me. (Turn Over the Moon had the working title of “Belde Novel” during the first draft.)
