Hey everyone! March is… well, mostly here and gone, actually. The good news is that I think I’ll have two books finished up this month. Jormungandr’s Venom (Fenris Unchained Book 3) and Valor’s Duty (Children of Valor #3) are both nearly done and I feel confident that I’ll have them out soon.
Next on my schedule is finishing off the seventh book of the Shadow Space Chronicles. I’ve got three more books queued up to work on after that, so the rest of spring and all through summer, you should see a number of my books getting ready to come out or coming out.
As you may have seen, I’ve redone the covers of my Shadow Space Chronicles books. Thanks to the hard work of David C. Simon as the cover artist and to Robert Brockman for the layout/formatting expert, The Fallen Race, The Shattered Empire, The Prodigal Emperor, and The Sacred Stars all have new covers.
Stay tuned and I hope to have some more posts, (including some book reviews, snippets of new books, and cover art peeks) coming out in the next few weeks. Thanks for reading!
Hey Everyone! Happy Valentines Day, and also welcome to 2018! (Yeah, I know, where was I six weeks ago? Well, 2017 was holding on tight and didn’t want to let go)
I’m plugging away on Valor’s Duty, the third book of the Children of Valor series. I had hoped to have it done, but real life, alas, has intruded. My priority is to finish that this month and get it out to my alpha readers. Ideally I will get it published some time in March.
My next couple of projects after that are on new series, one for a publisher and the other I plan to shop around. I plan to return to the Shadow Space Chronicles after that, and hopefully back to the Eoriel Saga and then maybe the Renegades after that.
Additionally, I’ll be attending the LTUE convention in Provo, Utah, starting on 15 February and running through the 17th.
Coming up early in March, I’ll be at Whimsycon in Denver, and I plan to talk a bit about a steampunk-related project that I’m working. Whimsycon is a new Steampunk based convention in Denver, run by the same group that hosts Myths and Legends Con and this year they will also be hosting Westercon. I highly recommend it, they’re great at organizing conventions and it is sure to be a good time.
In addition, I’ve had several of my older covers redone by the fantastic David Simon. I’ll be uploading those over the next couple of weeks.
That’s all for now, thanks for reading!
Hey everyone, I’m still here, sorry for the long absence. These past couple of months have been busy and stressful, but I’m hoping to get back to something like a normal writing/posting schedule.
For those of you curious to know what’s happening, my wife has gone through two surgeries in the past couple of months and we’ve had several visits to the ER, various doctors, and lots of appointments and such.
Combined with some other events, my priority has been managing all of that and I’ve fallen behind on writing and blogging. But things are improving and so I’m back.
I’ve got a bunch of things planned around here, so check back for updates on my writing schedule as well as my appearances at conventions. Thanks for reading!
Hey everyone, it’s December, already, and I’m doing my best to finish off Jormungandr’s Venom, the third book three of the Rising Wolf series.
I’ve already outlined the third Children of Valor book and I’ll plan to start on that by the 15th. I’m really excited to get back to working on that series and my goal is to bring it out in late January.
Posts have been infrequent around here, but that’s mostly because I’ve been really, really busy. Some of that has been writing, but let’s just say that it’s been a rough year. I may do a post on that later. I may not, we’ll see.
After the third Children of Valor book and Jormungandr’s Venom, I’ve got a new project I’ll be working on, then back to writing in my ongoing series. I’ve got lots of plans for the Renegades series and the conclusion of this story arc of the Shadow Space Chronicles.
That’s all for now, check in for more updates over the next few days!
November is here! I hope everyone is doing well, I am looking to wrap up the year with one or possibly two more books. I am working on Jormungandr’s Venom, the third book of the Rising Wolf series of books and I hope to have that to my publisher by the end of the month.
My project after that is Valor’s Duty, the third book of the Children of Valor series. I am hoping to get it done in time for release in December. Needless to say, that is a lot of writing, but I think I will be able to manage it.
My writing progress after that is still somewhat up in the air, but if I can, I want to get back to writing in the Eoriel Saga. The fourth book in that series is nearly finished, but I have been sidetracked by a lot of other things every time I try to sit down and write more in that world.
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!
October is here and with it, a new book published. That’s right, in case you missed it, I just released Valor’s Calling, the second book of the Children of Valor series. The feedback I’ve received from my alpha and beta readers has been really great, and I think you all are going to like it a lot. In case you’re not reading the series, Valor’s Child (the first book) has been on the top 20 of its category for the past three months.
So what’s next? Well, I’m putting together the next Shadow Space Chronicles book, but I’ve also had something else on my mind… or in my brain, possibly. In fitting with the time of year, I’ve been stuck on zombies. I’ve got the first book done and I’m shopping it around to a couple of publishers. If they like it, you may see it sooner than you expect.
Coming at the end of the month, you can expect to see Prisoner of the Mind. If you’re a fan of movies like Push, Carrie, and Firestarter, then you may well enjoy this story. It’s a near-future setting in the Shadow Space universe that covers the origins of a variety of powerful psychic/psionic characters in the universe. I’ll be publishing it near Halloween (Expect it around the 28th of October).
In the near future, I’m outlining the third Fenris book, and I plan to deliver that to the publisher before the end of the year. I’m way behind on that one, but expect to see more from Mel and Fenris before too much longer.
I’m also working on a couple of other projects, including a steampunk novel, the next Renegades book, and the next Eoriel Saga book, and the third Children of Valor book.
Thanks for reading!
Valor’s Calling, sequel to Valor’s Child, is coming soon! The second book of the Children of Valor series covers Jiden’s first full year at the Century Military Academy.
The past calls you back.
Jiden made the decision to join the Century Military Academy after her attempt at a normal school ended in disaster. She’s embraced this new chapter in her life and she’s ready to do her best.
Jiden’s best may not be good enough. Her relationships with her friends have changed since she’s been away, her classes are harder than she expected, and things aren’t quite what they seem. Jiden made enemies when she chose to return to the Academy, and those enemies will settle for nothing less than her death.
Jiden must fight with everything she has, not just to succeed, but to stay alive. Jiden will prove that she isn’t afraid of the challenge, because the military life isn’t just a simple decision, the military is her calling.
Valor’s Calling will be released on the 30th of September.
