Current Events


Yes, it has certainly been quite some time since the last update, which was right around the time I started a day job at Fantasy Flight Games, working as a developer.

It's sort of an interesting conundrum, really. I know that a lot of hard-working authors manage their time between regular employment and honing their craft, and for my sake, and for the sake of those who have been waiting quite some time for another book, some sort of update, or anything the like, I do apologize.

I have not conducted very much writing in recent times, and any writing I conduct will be done at a snail's pace. Unfortunately, working in a field like board game development both fulfills a need for creative outlet as well as devours the type of energy needed for such endeavors.

It's a challenging, fulfilling, and exciting task, and things (such as the project I recently finished) are going well:

I do want to stress that I do intend upon writing again, sooner or later. I greatly appreciate the patience of anyone who is waiting for more, and I want to thank everyone who has read and supported any of my books.

Still chuggin' away...

Sadly, I don't get a great deal of time to post updates, but rest assured, I am still working on various things.

The current project remains Beyond Haven, which with any luck the writing of should be finished by the beginning of December or thereabouts. Unfortunately (for the writing, not for anything else) I started a new job recently. I've gotten into the swing of balancing that with actually putting words on paper (screen), but editing is going to be a new and different beast.

My editing process, since releasing and correcting the first Haven book, has become a gigantic and unwieldly process that has taken pretty much every scrap of my time for around a 4-5 week period for the last three books. The end result has been a much cleaner release with very few errors, but I'll have to figure something else out now, lest the newest book have to take as long to edit as it did to write.

There are a few obvious solutions, but we shall see what happens.

Any questions or comments of course can be posted here, or a more consistent place to chat and interact would be my facebook page.

Oh, and just as a side note: Beyond Haven is shaping up very nicely. I think you all will be very pleased.

Beyond Haven (another sequel)

So, I've been tooling around the last few months with various projects (including home improvement stuff and the ebook recording), and since the release of Under a Glass Moon back in early April, I haven't yet really gotten a solid start into a new novel.

I've actually fiddled now with a few other concepts, most of which I hope to complete eventually, including but not limited to the Haven prequel and Ivan sequel. Though making no guarantees, I think via opinions I've heard (and ideas I've had in the last couple of weeks), that I will soon start working on another Haven instead, a follow-up to Exodus.

I'll keep things updated on the Facebook page and here as necessary, but I do feel pretty good about this as being the project I'm into for the next few months.

Oh, and pretty soon the recorded episodes of The Legend of Ivan should be appearing on Podiobooks.
