Dragon Con is just a little over ten days away. It’s coming up. Most of you know by now I’ve been honored to be nominated alongside literary heroes of mine like, Jim Butcher, author of The Dresden Files, Codex of Alera, and, The Cinder Spires. Voting and the convention aside, I’m hoping that everyone who reads this, and is going, will leave links to their twitter and or instagrams in the comments so I can follow. Let me live through you for a day, eh?
Okay, so what am I up to? Well, as you can imagine—writing! I’m currently over 80,000 words in the third novel in The Grave Report. I’m awaiting beta feedback on a new novel and series slated to debut this December. That project, well, it’s The Books of Winter. Some of you have already seen it, but don’t worry, I’ll share some pictures here below as well as the jacket blurb.
On the docket is to finish the third novel in The Grave Report. Hammer out a bunch of short stories for an anthology coming next year. Oh, yeah, anthologies, guess what? Another The Longest Night Watch is coming this September with two short stories from my comedy fantasy world, Questworld.
If things continue to go all well on the writing and timing front, I’ll begin a standalone novel late fall for a publisher in the UK. I have no idea when that will debut however. But, between the choices of too much work, or too little, I know which I’d choose. 😉
Just a little reminder for all three people that read this. And, if you haven’t seen it, well, here it is folks. Dangerous Ways: Book one of The Books of Winter.
Jonathan Hawthorne has lived over a century beholden to one rule: do not meddle in mortal affairs. He’s broken it twice. When he crosses paths with Cassidy Winters, he’s forced to interfere again.
Strike three. And the third time’s not the charm.
Hawthorne is swept along as Cassidy slips through the cracks in reality.
And being hunted by bands of monsters doesn’t help.
To find the answers they need, they’ll have to play in a dangerous world. One where the odds and rules are stacked against them. They will have to navigate magical courts, queens and lords all while trying to keep Cassidy out of their scheming hands.
If they fail, she will end up a pawn in a plot that will consume them all.
Hawthorne will have to face the consequences of his past, and risk his future to ensure Cassidy can have one of her own.
For a man with all the time in the world—it seems to be running out—fast!
So, thoughts folks!?
