It has been a while since I have done a State Of The Tales kind of post, so it is time for one! There are some little news bites for my readers so grab a cup of coffee from Vydor’s bar and read on! I even have a new release to mention!
The Telepath Chronicles will release on November 7th! It is already up for pre-order! It features a bunch of great stories around the concept of telepathy by some of my friends among the author community. It also has my first super hero style story, The Null. I had a lot of fun writing that story; it was a nice break from my normal books and refreshing. I may write more of that in the future, time will tell.
I have THREE copies of the ebook to give away if you want one. The deal is you have to promise to post an honest review in exchange. First three commenters on this post get it. Just make sure I have an email address for you that actually works. If I cannot reach you by email I will pass you over and go to the next person.
Now, over in the audiobook world, I failed to woo Amazon in to paying for the production of The Academy. That is not surprising, at all, but I figured it was worth a shot. However, I have worked an out a deal with Jack to narrate Academy and he plans to start on it in mid to late November. He is currently on another project and needs to complete that before starting ours. This means that Academy might, just might, make it for a Christmas release, but if not, then shortly after.
Volume VII: The Sac’a’rith: Rebirth is around eighty percent written. I hope to have the first draft completed by Thanksgiving, which would put a release likely in mid January to early February. I had hoped to have it out much sooner than that, but taking on the audiobook of Enemy and some other life events prevented that.
I have also started Volume VIII: Silverleaf, which will be a new story arch with new characters, and open up a new realm. It actually started as a subplot of Rebirth (much the same way Sac’a’rith started as a subplot of Gambit), but it is too fun of a story to be a subplot so it will get its own day in the sun.
Finally I have one other release to mention. There will be a collection of 101 short stories called, Stories On The Go, released sometime before the end of the year. That collection will feature a story about Dusty and Spectra called Rage. It was a minor plot line that I cut from the beginning of Gambit for length and reformatted to work in that collection. In addition there will be 100 other stories in that collection from 100 other authors covering all styles, genres and levels of fame. It will be free, so definitely worth checking out when it is ready.
In closing, do not forget to sign up for my email list! Everyone that does gets access to my slowly growing library for free stories and eventually will have other exclusive items in it.
