The book is slightly over 500 pages, 8.5″ x 11″ so if you thought the last book was big, this one is even bigger! I think it’s a better balanced book that continues down the road set by the previous volume. It will probably take a month or two for the editor and then a few weeks after till everything is in place and ready for publishing.

I have yet to make a cover for this book by the way, still mulling a few ideas while the editors work out the insides. Looking at around August/September for the official release date.
