There are a lot of big events and new developments in AQATWA, but the connective tissue that will hold it all together as a coherent book isn't there yet.
However, you may surmise that at least I am writing again. I never really stopped, but progress has been dragging for a while.
Current word count is 131K words. I still predict this is going to be the longest of the AQ books yet.
And now, one of the best illustrations I've seen of Alexandra, courtesy of cactuscommando, and another one of Dean Grimm! Click the links to go check out the full-size versions on the artist's DeviantArt page.
