You heard right! I’ve decided to post the entire 3rd book of The Pearlsong Refounding ( The Word Within)right here on this blog, uploading a new entry week by week, as it is being written! See my Pearlsong Blog for more!
My library says they can find the third book for sale anywhere.
Seriously? I want to read it so bad!
My teenage son has read your first 2 books and really wants to read the third. How do we access it? Would be willing to purchase it, if it is available. Thank you!
Hey Claire—I’m working on the third book right now. That’s the good news! The bad news is it won’t be available in print until the middle of 2012. BUT, (more good news!), I’ll be posting the first draft of the book as I write it right here on this website. So…even though the printed version wont’ be out for a while, your son can read it online as I write it—and provide feedback if he wants.
Hope that helps. All my best—
Hello mr warden.!!! I hope u are writing and soon finishing this third installment of your trilogy. My girlfriend a couple years ago was reading this book right… It was called gideons dawn… i thought what a strange yet enticing name so i asked her if it was good and she said amazing… so being a big reader, i bought it. Since then, i have read both gideons dawn and waymaker at least six times. I have nevr read a book sooo colorful in words and flowing from page to page! I give you my biggest thanks for emersing me in this strange world you have created, and every time i read them i find myself wishing that the real world could be as amazing as your books. I would place your books at the top next too the trilogy his dark materials by philip pullman which is my fav series ever. I pray your time and effort has paid off and gideon has provided you with “the word of money” in delio. 10/10 stars.
Ps- any idea when the book might be finished. Im reading the first two as we speak and want to get my greedy hands on that book! Not that im greedy, its just your books are TOO good!!! Lol
Hey Chris—MAN, I love that. Thanks so much for the encouragement! It means a lot.
I am currently writing the third book (posting the 1st draft here online as I go). The finished book won’t be out in print until late next year. But I welcome you to read along as I write it, and even often your thoughts on how I could improve it, or what you like about how it’s going (yeah, especially that —:). Thanks again!
I just want to say thanks for writing these books. I read the first one in junior high and I loved it. It was before Waymaker came out and so I would always hope that you would bring the second book out. All the while I would read Gideon’s Dawn over and over again. Nourishment to my soul, really. Currently I am a senior in college and I can’t wait for the final book to come out. It really has inspired me as an artist and who I am as a person.
Thanks so much. Blessings
I have been waiting a long time for this book to come out. My daughter and I have read both of the first two in this series and were absolutly hooked. They were some of the best reads that I have had and I can’t wait for the final one to come out. I will keep waching for it (need to get a copy for each of us now, as she is married and out of the country so we can’t share anymore). Can’t wait, and God bless!!
Gideon’s Dawn has been a treasure in my library since the day I first read it. For too long I thought that this would be a phenomenal story with no end – a tragedy for such an excellent work. I’m ecstatic to hear that you kept writing. Thank you!
Hello, Michael! Is the third book written yet? I loved the first two in the series. I’m a missionary in Africa—eagerly awaiting the third. Trying to figure out what’s happening. thanks!
"...a work of extreme depth and breadth of vision."
