Long story short, I have literal stacks of notebooks full of akashic stuff and Lost Spheres has really been a great home for a lot of these expanded materials like Akashic Trinity and The Zodiac. Since City of 7 Seraphs gave us this cool planar hub to run adventures out of (and seriously, I can't wait for that to release, the new vizier mystic attunement is hands down my favorite vizier mechanic out of everything I've written for the class), Christen and I thought it would be a good idea to look at other planes and demiplanes that might use akashic magic and how it would manifest there. So there's going to be Norse veils (for anyone who wanted to dual-wield Mjolnir and Gungnir while riding Sleipnirr across your personal Bifrost), a new zodiac cosmology based on the Chinese zodiac, some Yomi-themed eclipse materials, new nexus convergences for every plane included in the handbook, a bunch of additional akashic feats including some "set" feats that give you benefits for dedicating to a specific set, and a few other goodies.
I'd love to sell Christen on letting me include a Dia de Muertos themed plane or demiplane (Xibalba, maybe? Though that's a little darker than I'd like to aim for) where I can include some lucha libre veils and a lucha guru philosophy, but I don't know that either of us is entirely convinced that there's a viable market for that. Who knows though? While my luchador class only did okay sales-wise (at least compared to the akashic releases) people seem to be digging the fact that Luis made luchadors in Arcadia canon for Golarion, so maybe that market is actually starting to grow. I know there's at least a couple people who have specifically requested akashic luchador stuff over the last year or two, so maybe if a few more people chime in that they'd be interested we can make it happen.
(Xibalba, maybe? Though that's a little darker than I'd like to aim for)
I don't know if it makes any difference, but Xibalba is already in use in the Golarion setting as the name for the demiplane the sahkils have carved out of the Ethereal Plane to be their personal Silent Hill.

Xibalba definitely sounds too dark for Dia de los Muertos unless you're going to use it for heels and have another plane for faces.
I'm pro anything/everything Akashic. You write it. I'll buy it. Within reason anyway. Ok, maybe a little outside of reason as well.
That being the case, I thought someone should point out that there's an akashic class in The Book of Many Things Campaign Exclusive Content.
The Crux, a duel wielding master of the yin-yang bomb.
Class feature oriented instead of veil oriented like the Zodiac.
For anyone who likes the idea of smacking people with fire and cold, or chaos and order, positive and negative energy, etc.
I wanted to get that book anyway, but I know an added akashic class increased my interest.
