October… my favorite month for a number of reasons. Not least of which is that I love the fall. Lots of cool weather that’s perfect for curling up and reading/writing a book.
I’ve been doing a lot of writing. No, really, it’s about all I do in my free time. Write and think about writing. It’s sort of taking over. The good news there is that I’m putting the finishing touches on Renegades: Out of Time. The third novel of the Renegades series is just that, a novel. It’s every bit as manic and crazy as the other ones, but it follows a more traditional writing style. Why is that, you may ask? Because for this story, it flows better. At this point, too, most of my readers should know the characters well enough that they don’t all need their own stories.
Look for Renegades: Out of Time to come out sometime in November. Which leads me to what I’ve finished outlining and plan to write next: The Temple of Light, the fifth book of the Shadow Space Chronicles. In this one, we’ll start to dig into what exactly Reese is doing with those alien artifacts he’s been collecting. We’ll see more about the mysterious Minder, and we’ll start to see why it is the Balor are so set upon human extinction.
It’s going to be fun. There’s going to be exploding space ships, intrigue, character growths, character deaths, more exploding space ships, and all-in-all, it should be lots of fun. My goal is to finish it in November which means a publishing date sometime in December or possibly early January depending on feedback from my readers..
My writing goals after that are a bit more complex. I need to do a third Wolf Rising book, the fourth Eoriel Saga book, and I’m going to also somehow fit in there finishing off a couple other projects that have been setting on the backburners.
Also this month I’ll be headed out to North Carolina. In addition to visiting my grandfather, I’ll be attending HonorCon, a military SF convention in Raleigh, NC. It looks like it’ll be a ton of fun, so if you’re in the area and not cleaning up from hurricane damage, then by all means, come visit. I’ll have copies of all my books and I’d love to sign some for you!
That’s all for now, thanks for reading!

I’m super excited for the next shadow space book. I picked up the fallen race on a whim two weeks ago and just finished them all for the second time. I think I’ll read renegades and try out your other books while I wait
Daniel, glad to hear you’re enjoying the series! I’ll have the next Shadow Space book out in December. In the meantime, feel free to sign up for my monthly newsletter, I’ll be sending out sample chapters for it soon!
