And why, you ask? Well, because the sequel to The Gullwing Odyssey is in the works. That's right, Marco's adventures don't just end. There's a reason why it's called an Odyssey. Marco's journey is as much one of personal growth as it is a globe-spanning adventure. If he's lucky, he won't be away from home for twenty years like the titular character of a much, much older tale of a man on an epic voyage, but in life there are never any promises.
As with The Gullwing Odyssey, you can expect more laughs, thrilling fights, dazzling magic, and sweeping adventure. The project is currently unnamed, but that'll change as the novel progresses.
I'll be chiming in periodically to keep you posted on my progress. Right now, I'm at 9,857 words in six chapters. Please be patient with me -- it may take me a little while as I'm something of a perfectionist -- but I'm as anxious as you are to see what happens next.
