Update on Race for the Flash Stone

Greetings readers,

Over the last two weeks, I’ve received several anxious inquiries as to when Race for the Flash Stone will be released. Geez, I haven’t even started promoting Shadows of the Stone Benders yet! Don’t get me wrong, I’m pleased there is so much interest in the next installment of The Anlon Cully Chronicles!

For those of you interested in an update on Race for the Flash Stone, I’m making good progress on the continuation. I’ve completed most of my research, I’ve completed the chapter map/outline and I’ve written the first four chapters. I have a lot more writing to do, but I expect to wrap up in the Fall and release Race for the Flash Stone late this year or early next year. I’m having a blast writing the follow-on…lots more twists and turns, intriguing new revelations about the ancient Munuorian civilization (pronounced Moon-war-E-un), cool science, new villains joining the chase for the mysterious Stones alongside villains from the first story, and of course more of the developing relationships between Anlon, Pebbles and Jennifer! Plus…a new whodunit that will puzzle your mind all the way through 😉

    Thank you for the delightful read. I enjoyed it very much. I did leave a review on Amazon. Can’t wait for the next one. I very much admire the building relationship and ,so far , the lack of immediate jump in the sack and describe in detail which I despise. Thanks for the afternoon entertainment.

    Excellent read. I loved the story. I have always been big on ancient history and ancient civilizations. Crystals we all know about but there were many past civilizations and stone is a new thought. One I will be entertaining for a long time. Like most avid readers I am ready for the next installment. A shame writers can’t write as face as readers read. 🙂

      Amanda, thank you for your comments and praise. Thank you also for your positive Amazon review 🙂 In conceiving my story (and series) I asked the question – if an advanced society existed prior to recorded human history, why are there no relics? The solution I imagined, for better or worse, originated from existing unexplained archaeological discoveries. The oldest, most confounding to validate, discoveries are stone structures. The Giza pyramids, the Sphinx, Tiahuanaco, Machu Pichu, Olmec headstones among others. Who built them and how? Though my stor(ies) are fictional, it seemed a reasonable starting point to ask the question – instead of demanding scrolls, pictographs and elaborate alchemist creations to prove ancient prowess, might the answers lie in the stones themselves? Often the most overlooked solution is the simplest. It’s fun to imagine the possibilities, and I hope you find my adventurous stab at prehistory an intriguing alternative to mainstream views 🙂

    ok I meant as fast as readers read. Obviously I read not write.

      Thank you, Deborah! I appreciate your enthusiastic interest 🙂 I should finish up Race for the Flash Stone in late January. Then, its off for editing. If all goes well, hoping for a late February release. And there will be follow-on installments of the series beyond that 🙂
