Ada and the Singing Skull

I know it sounds pretty early for me to start talking about the next book after The Heart of Ameinias, but the story bug's bitten me pretty bad, and since I'm more than halfway through The House of Ash, I might as well post a teaser in the form of a cover and title reveal. So behold:

There might be a tweak or two down the line insofar as the cover details are concerned, but the title's set, and I'll be jumping right on it once I'm done with The House of Ash unless I'm really feeling overly inspired and energetic. I'd rather not multi-task like I've been doing the past couple or so years since that guarantees burnout, but sometimes when the inspiration hits, you shouldn't ignore it. 

All the same, even if I were to end up multi-tasking (hopefully not), I'll still be standing by my five-month calendar beginning with that book. 

I also have the tentative title chosen for the next Grotesqueries novella, but I'm having the darnedest time finding the right cover image for the book. I'll certainly be sharing it once I come up with a great image, but for now, that novella will be a contemporary ghost story inspired by a favorite hashtag of mine when I was still on Tumblr: retail gothic. I'll let you mull that over for a bit until I've got something more solid to share.
