I don’t really blog anymore since I’ve been doing so many video updates, but I figured this might be a good time to brush off the dust and write something comprehensive that explains the craziness that is now my life.
Many of you that follow me know I’ve got more than a couple of series going right now. My newest, Hell Divers, published in July of 2016 by Blackstone Audio. If you haven’t read that one yet, you’re missing out on the most complicated post-apocalyptic story I’ve penned to date. For existing fans, I’m working hard on book 2: Ghosts. Reserve your copy here!
The Extinction Cycle continues with book 6, Aftermath (download here), and I’ll move right into writing book 7, War at the end of this year. You may have also seen the Extinction Cycle has also recently launched as a Kindle World, meaning other authors can come in and contribute their own fan fiction stories. The canon, aka the main storyline will continue with my work, so don’t worry. To learn more please visit this page, or the Amazon kindle worlds page. Major pain points so far are these stories are ebook only, and they are available only in the US. This is all Amazon and not me. So please, please, do not send me emails or Facebook messages about how I’m robbing you. I agreed to Kindle Worlds because I wanted to provide fans with more stories that I didn’t have the time to write, and because I wanted other authors to have an opportunity to use my existing brand and reach new readers. No one is getting rich on these books. They are meant for your reading pleasure, and I gotta’ say, they are damn fine additions to my Extinction Cycle universe.
With that out of the way, let’s talk about Trackers. What’s that? Trackers is my next series that’s due out January 11th, 2017. I actually wrote this one earlier this year but hadn’t decided what to do with it until now. So again, don’t worry, it’s not taking time away from the Extinction Cycle or Hell Divers. This is the first story I’ve written that doesn’t have aliens, mutants, or zombies. Honestly, I’m a bit nervous. But sometimes the worst type of monsters are men, and I think you will see that in Trackers. What I’m telling you is be prepared for some Walking Dead type murders. No, there isn’t anyone with a baseball bat. The antagonist in Trackers uses something much more frightening. : ) You can pre-order a copy here.
Orbs 4? Yup, still planning to write it with Anthony Melchiorri, author of the Tide. We just have to figure out when we can squeeze it in, but I’m hoping that will be in early 2017.
So yeah, clearly I have a lot going on. But I assure you, I’m working seven days a week to make sure these stories come out as quickly as possible, without neglecting the quality that you all deserve.
Lastly, I do have openings on my street team. What’s that you ask? Good question. I get that a lot. My street team is a bunch of the best readers this humble author could ask for. We have a closed group on Facebook where we discuss my books, promote my books, and engage in some other shenanigans. Want in? Send me an email. Only requirement: You must have read at least one of my books. Liking it would probably help, too. : )
Happy Halloween everyone!
