I like these posts, the ones where I say a book is finally published after many, many months of hard work. I started writing this one, Prison of Despair, in February 2014. It's now July, a mere five months later, and I've not only finished it but am very close to finishing the NEXT book as well. I'm on fire! (Not literally. That would be awful.)

So here it is, Book 8 in the Island of Fog series, published today on July 20, 2014. Exactly a month from today will see the publication of Book 9, but we'll get to that later. I mention it because Books 8 and 9 form a two-part story split down the middle. Because of this, I've made a note on the covers to let readers know.

Three months have passed. Spring is around the corner, and so is Hal Franklin's thirteenth birthday. Everything is quiet in the village of Carter. Too quiet.

When nighttime intruders take dozens of villagers hostage, the shapeshifters find themselves up against a familiar enemy: the scrags of Old Earth. And the constant threat of executions renders them powerless to do anything to stop them. Instead, they're forced to cooperate and spend time in the dreaded Prison of Despair, a dismal place in the woods with an insidious curse.

Hal and his resourceful friends find ways to escape the prison undetected. In doing so, they discover the true reason the scrags have walked into the village...

PRISON OF DESPAIR is the eighth book in the ISLAND OF FOG series and the first of a two-part story that concludes in the ninth book, CASTLE OF SPELLS, due for release on August 20th, 2014.

This book is available on Kindle US, Kindle UK, Nook, Kobo, and Apple (I'll update these links as soon as it shows as published). The book will also be available in print as usual, but this won't be for another few weeks as that's a whole different kettle of fish. Enjoy, and please remember to add your reviews and ratings to Amazon, Goodreads, and so on!
