Journeyman Warsmith is out, reviews are mostly positive, with healthy doses of constructive criticism. Even the harsher reviewers are looking forward to the next volume. There is nothing more a fledgling indie author could ask for, besides unreasonably high rankings and sales figures.

Next week, I'll interview Elle Jacklee, author of the Wunderwood series.
