Kal’s September 2016 Forecast

September is here!  With it, I’m happy to announce that The Sacred Stars, the fourth book of the Shadow Space Chronicles series is also here!  It’ll be available in just two more days.  That’s right, exploding space ships in only two more days.

I’m also happy to announce that the audiobook narration for The Shattered Empire is done.  I’m doing the review now and I hope to have it approved and available for general purchase through Amazon, Audible, and iTunes sometime in the next couple of weeks.

I’ve begun outlining the third Renegades book and as soon as I finish my current work in progress, I’ll dig into it and hopefully that’ll be ready to publish at the end of October.

My current work in progress is an urban fantasy novel which, once I’ve finished it, I’ll be sending to a publisher.  It may be a while before anyone sees it, but it’ll be worth the wait, trust me, it’s tons of fun to write and the responses I’ve had back so far suggest it is even more fun to read.

Lastly, I’m doing a giveaway with this month’s newsletter.  Run’s Coffee Mug and a signed copy of The Sacred Stars.  Sign up by this weekend and you’ll be eligible.

That’s all for now.   Thanks for reading!

The Shattered Empire, coming October 25th!

I’m happy to announce that The Shattered Empire, Book II of the Shadow Space Chronicles, sequel to The Fallen Race, will go live on the 25th of October.  As a part of it going live, I’ll be doing a book bomb at noon on the 25th.  The book is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be available for preorder through Smashwords to Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and Apple’s store soon, as well.  Read below for details on The Shattered Empire.

Baron Lucius Giovanni has managed to buy the human race a brief reprieve from the two alien races which seek humanity’s extinction. In the process he has become the leader of a new nation and the commander of a powerful fleet. However, victory comes with consequences. Without an imminent threat, old feuds have sparked back to life and tenuous alliances falter. There are also old enemies who cannot forget that Lucius has what they wanted. He must find a way to hold off scheming rivals, sociopathic psychics, and even former friends. If he can’t do all that and take the fight to humanity’s true enemies, billions may die under alien servitude.

The Shattered Empire is available on Amazon here.

 

Kal’s September Forecast

Well, September is here, fall is in the air, and Kal is currently hunched over a computer.  The good news is that I’m almost finished with The Shattered Empire and should have it done in the next few days.  The bad news is that I’m not yet done, which means the publishing date will most likely be bumped back to mid to late October.  Part of this is due to a heavy workload and parenthood, part of it is due to The Shattered Empire being a much larger book than The Fallen Race.

As soon as The Shattered Empire’s first draft is done, I’ll be sending it out to my alpha readers.  Right after that, I’m starting work on a couple of short stories and then going to work on the sequel to Echo of the High Kings: Wrath of the Usurper.  My goal is to have that one finished this year and published early next year.   Along the way I’ve got to finish the YA book, the Steampunk book, and work on a submission to a publisher.

So my forecast for September is writing, writing, and more writing… hopefully with a side of writing.
