Hey Gang: Just a quick note to let you know I finished my final pass on Book 3 Thursday morning at 12:30am. It’s off to my Bookies for a good once-over, and after those corrections are added, the final manuscript is off to Tsaba House for their edits and then printing. Thanks again for your patience; you guys are the best fans an author could ask for.Β  ch:

It’s about time! I mean it’s not like you’ve got any other projects stealing your time…or anything. πŸ˜‰

How went that ending rewrite that we talked about back in October? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

Anyways, I’m sure the third book will be as awesome as the first one! (I have yet to get my hands on the second one…)

I can’t wait. Man, you sure know how to multi-task.

Congrats on the coming little one too.

I just found out Saturday that I am going to be a first time dad too!

I may go back and re-read both books again. It is all so still vivid in my mind and it has to have been close to a year since I read The Lion Vrie.

I bet it will be just as good as the first two they were so good i finished them in three days.

When will book 3 of Lion Chronicles be released?

Alyn · 17 Sep ’10 at 5:32 pm

It’s mid September 2010; where is Lion Chronicles book 3 ?

    Christopher Hopper · 20 Sep ’10 at 11:51 am

    Alyn: Thanks for your noted concern. My agent is shopping it to new publishers as my previous one has taken a financially required hiatus in publishing books. If I can not secure a new house, I will be e-publishing it online as I’m terribly saddened at how long my readers have been required to wait.

I was just wondering if there was any new news on Athera’s Dawn? My husband and I have really been looking forward to reading it :o)

    Christopher Hopper · 29 Jan ’11 at 1:50 pm

    I wish I had better news: at the moment the whole series is in the process of being pitched to 2 different publishing houses. things don’t nearly fast enough for my tastes (nor my fans, for that matter). Because there is some interest from those houses, I’ve put my previous inklings of self-publishing on hold that my readers would get a better product. Can’t thank you enough for your interest; means the world to me.
