Kal’s November 2017 Forecast

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!

Kal’s October 2017 Forecast

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!

Kal’s July 2017 Forecast

July is here, the Fourth was a blast (pun intended) and I had the pleasure of attending an awesome fireworks display up in Grand Lake, Colorado.

I also attended Liberty Con in Chattanooga, TN.  That was equally epic.  I did a short FB post about it, but I haven’t had time to do a full post.

July is midway through, already.  I’ve been pretty darned busy.  Lots of traveling, between the convention and the 4th, I feel almost as if I’ve been living out of a suitcase for the past couple of weeks.

I’ve basically finished work on Ghost Star (Shadow Space Chronicles VI) and I’m making good progress on Valor’s Calling (Children of Valor II).  My next project after that is to clear some of my backlog of works in progress.  I’ve got something like five books at various states of completion.

That’s all for now, I hope to have more for you all in the near future. Thanks for reading!

Kal’s February 2017 Forecast

February is here.  Wow, that was quick.  I actually found myself writing 2012 on some paperwork yesterday, which tells you how out of touch I can be with the flow of time…  (we’re living in the future, man!)

But anyway, in January I finished writing and the first round of edits to my last WIP, an Urban Fantasy novel that I’ll be sending off to a publisher, hopefully in the next couple of months.  I sent it to my alpha readers and I’m waiting to hear back from them.  I also sent out another novel, Prisoner of the Mind, to a big publisher.  Again, it’s a waiting process.

This month, I’ve already started writing the next Shadow Space Chronicles book.  It has space pirates, exploding space ships, and we get to learn a lot more about Marius Giovanni.  I’m excited to write it and I hope to have it finished by the end of the month.

For those of you who want sneak peaks at my projects, don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter.  This month I’ll be giving away a signed copy of The Temple of Light as well as giving a free preview of the urban fantasy novel I’ve completed.

That’s all for now, thanks for reading!

COSine 2017

For those in Colorado, I’ll be attending COSine, a Colorado Springs Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention.

It’s a fun little convention, if you haven’t been before.  I highly recommend it.  There’s always a few excellent authors in attendance and they have a variety of great topics for their panels.

My schedule:

SATURDAY  
11-noon    Characters in Combat (Breckenridge)
5:15 – 7pm   Author Reception and Mass Signing (Ballroom)

SUNDAY
10-11am   How much does that Star Cruiser cost – fictional economics  (Breckenridge)

The author reception and signing is particularly fun, so if you don’t get a chance to do much else, I recommend that especially.
