Book 3 Update

October 23rd, 2015

Hey folks,

So here’s some (potentially) good news. After a very hectic and irritating summer, things have finally settled down. I have a new job that at least allows me to sleep like a semi-regular human. It still eats up a lot of time, but now that our son is in school I’ve been able to actually work on the new book every day this week. If that trend continues, maybe I can be productive again.

The bad news is that the book is very far behind schedule. Right now, I’m supposed to submit it to Pyr by the end of next March. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I can meet that deadline, but life has been too turbulent for me to make any promises that far down the line. But I can promise I’ll work my ass off trying to reach that goal.

Thank you all for your continued support and enthusiasm for this series. It means everything to me.

Series Update

July 24th, 2013

Hey folks,

As many of you may know, I was working on the outline for Book 2 of the new series (The Book of the Black Earth) last January-Feb. Well, I got the chance to go back and iron out some things in the first book, so that’s what I’ve been doing since then.

The good news is that book one should be (I hope) a better novel because of this polishing (which included adding a new scene). The bad news is that it set back work on book 2 by a few months.

But never fear. I’m now getting back to the sequel outline. Of course, it’s difficult to pick up where I left off, but I’m slowly making progress. I’m very excited to share these new books with you all — I can’t WAIT for March ’14 to arrive.

Thanks for listening.

Oh! And I’ve seen the artwork for Book 1. I can’t share it yet, but let me tell you, it’s fantastic.
