Anyone who has read Proving Ground knows that its sequel, Silver Maiden, was supposed to be released in 2013. That was my projected date for completion and release, but it was a bit shortsighted because I actually write two YA series: the Nanotech series and The Animus Saga. Book II of The Animus Saga took quite a bit longer to finish than I predicted, thus pushing back the release of Silver Maiden. I apologize for the inconvenience and I hope to have the book done by the end of 2014. Whether or not that happens depends on a number of factors, some of which I cannot control. If you loved Proving Ground, please spread the word and share the love and stay tuned for more updates. Thank you for your support.
