FAQ on The Crow God’s Girl
Is this the third book in the Gordath Wood trilogy?
It’s the third book in the series but it is a standalone novel, not the conclusion of a trilogy. Readers can start with The Crow God’s Girl and then go read the other two books for the rest of the story. Since this book follows Kate Mossland and Colar Terrick, it begins its own sequence. Basically, it’s a reboot.
Will there be more books in the series?
Yes. Kate has a big story to tell with lots of adventures. So the series will continue.
What about Lynn and Joe? And Captain Crae? You haven’t abandoned them, have you?
Captain Crae plays a huge part in The Crow God’s Girl. As for Lynn and Joe, I will be checking back in with them in in later books.
Why did you self-publish The Crow God’s Girl?
Ace opted not to publish this book. This is sad — believe me, I shed many a tear — but in this day and age, it’s not the end of the world. I had a story to tell, and the way to get the story out to readers was through self-publishing. In the process I learned exactly why publishers sell books for the price they sell them for. I am fortunate in that I write and edit for a living. I know how to proofread and copy edit. And it was still the most time-consuming and stressful part of the process. I was committed to bringing to readers a book of the highest quality, and I know you will find typos despite the three or four passes I made over the manuscript, and believe me, it’s haunting me already (pre-haunting?).
What if I find a typo (or several hundred)?
*whimper.* Let me know so I can fix it in the electronic edition.
What is the most important thing a reader can do to help support a series they like?
