Two Weeks Until FM6!!!

This is about the time I'll be clicking the button to publish on Amazon two weeks from now.

Also about the time some of you will be searching and refreshing "Richard Raley" over and over if the past is any indication!

Book is like 99% done already.  Have about 7 chapters of typo hunting to do personally and still waiting on a few beta readers, but other than that, everything is looking good.

Really proud that I finished the 800 page behemoth in a year like this.  Far and away my most productive year as a writer.  And what a book, been imagining the last scene since I started working on the series and I'm really happy with it and all the rest.

Hope you fans end up liking it too :)

Think you can push it into the Top 1000 in Amazon sales this time around?


  1. I refresh 'cause I'm hoping there will be a glitch and I can get it early.

    1. Not a glitch, just the way the system works. Seen a book go through in two hours and others take a whole day.
