I am very sorry to have to announce that I have failed yet again to meet a target completion deadline for book 5. This book has, from its earliest beginnings, been much more of a struggle for me than the first four books. I had hoped that I was now far enough along that I could push through to completion by March (after failing to meet my previous December goal), but the writing just isn’t flowing that smoothly.
I am continuing to work on it, and will get it out this year, but at this point I am not going to state a new date until I’m sure I can achieve it. I am very, very sorry–I know so many of you have been waiting a very long time for more of Halfdan’s story.
I am fairly certain by this point, by the way, that the title will be Into the Wildlands (although perhaps it should be The Long Wait).
I’ve been checking your blog periodically for years to see when it will come out 🙂 as a published author myself, I know how these kinds of delays go, so no worries—just know we’re very excited to read it!!
Thank you, Josh.
Very excited to read the conclusion whenever it comes out! Hope we get to see Genevieve again!
I cant wait to read it, i appreciate the updates, and the dedication to make sure the story is right, rather than rushed. Definitely need to reread the series to remember all the intricate details of all thats happened. Best regards. Sam
Thank you, Sam. Sorry the wait has been so long.
I understand you, you are sick and you have trouble in your place of living, but I am waiting and waiting, I want this book 5, as I loved 1 to 4 so much, also when vol. 4 was not released anymore in German language. Please hurry, the fans of Halfdan are waiting! thankyou!
Thank you, Astrid. Actually, the past year has gone much better overall. This book is just more of a struggle than the earlier ones were, for some reason. I’ve spent several days trying to get one minor new scene right. But I’ll keep pushing.
🙂 It will be worth the wait!
Thank you, Lori.
Happy to hear from you again. I enjoy reading your updates even if they are not related to your book schedule. I can’t wait to read the book when it’s released and I’m sure the wait will be worth it.
