Short answer: No. But just for a few moments, it certainly felt like it. Recently I did an interview for my local paper which I was told would run today, and when I went to pick up a copy (or two or three!) I discovered that I’d made the front page! That was an exciting start to the week for me!

And tomorrow promises to be another exciting day, too, as Antiquity’s Gate: Through a Mirror, Darkly hits virtual shelves everywhere. That’s right, book two! I bet for you it doesn’t feel like it’s been very long. Book one only came out a month ago. But for me, it is the culmination of a very long wait. It’s not like this book just appeared out of nowhere in the last month, after all. It’s been through a lot. It’s been a long time coming. That’s part of the beauty.

If you haven’t read book one, Antiquity’s Gate: Three Days Till Dawn, I advise you to stop reading this post now. The blurb below contains some very minor spoilers.

If you’d like to pick it up, here is a link to the first book, and here’s one to the new release.

Don’t blink—book three will be here before you know it! That’s right, the rapid release continues on October 22, 2019.

About Through A Mirror, Darkly

Sanctuary has been granted a stay of execution, but this reprieve is only temporary.

Chaos reigns in the vacuum left after the Therans’ retreat. While Sylvia and Edwin work to pick up the pieces of a broken city, they find that Sanctuary is now the first line of defense in a war no one realized was still being fought. In dire need of supplies and allies, they seek out alliances while factions within the city itself threaten its fledgling freedom.

Meanwhile, Felix discovers that no matter where he goes, he can’t outrun who he is. The Pravacordian government dangles his amnesty like a carrot on a stick. Under pressure, he agrees to a mission that will take him into unknown territory: the other side of Antiquity’s Gate. If he succeeds, his family will be safe. If he fails, he’ll never see them again.

The fate of two worlds lies in the hands of a desperate few. Some of them seem doomed to repeat history… others are determined to.

The point at which reality blurs with imagination is usually where I am to be found. I'm already on my fifth cup of coffee.
