Summer 2014 Update

With summer halfway over now, it’s time to talk about fall releases. Good news is that I have good news. 🙂

My sci-fi thriller, The Crossover Gene, has gone out to beta readers. I’ll be letting the manuscript sit for another two weeks while the betas finish going through it. That’ll give me some much-needed time away.

Once those two weeks have passed, I’ll make another pass through the manuscript, working in their feedback. After that, it’ll go out to my editor and proofreader. As it stands, things are looking good for an October release.

I won’t be sitting idle while Crossover is parked though. I’ve spent this week reviewing my existing work on Revenge In the Badlands, book three in my Badlands series. The manuscript sits two-thirds of the way through the first draft now, with hopes of having the rest of it finished by the end of August. I’m not sure if the book will see a 2014 release date, but I doubt it’ll be much later than that.

It’s too early to say much about Out of the Badlands (Badlands series book four), but I’m shooting for a 2015 release. Seems doable. It’ll probably be a bigger book (closer to 100k words) because I really want to end the series with a bang. I’ve spent a long time with these characters, so they deserve a proper ending.

Also, look for a revamping of my mailing list sometime before the end of the year. I’m looking at moving to a newsletter style, although I haven’t yet determined the frequency. If you haven’t signed up for my mailing list, you can do that here. The folks on the mailing list are the first to be notified of new releases.

As always, thanks for reading. If you enjoy my work and feel so inclinded, tell a friend. Feel free to leave a review too. These kinds of things really help me out.

Until next time.
