Week 5 of 2021
This week I’ve been focused on getting new stories out. I have a new writer that I can’t wait to publish. I’ll finish my edits tomorrow.
There are several other stories coming in soon, plus a cool new project that we’re making progress on.
I made some progress on The Ravening of Wolves, but not as much as I’d hoped. Nevertheless, I got over 40k this week, so it’s getting there too.
What I’m Listening To
You’ll know the show I’m watching when you read the quote.
Quote of the Week
“I don’t believe there’s a power in the ‘verse can stop Kaylee from being cheerful.”
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds
New Mythology Works in Progress
With the second of Barbara V. Evers’ Watchers of Moniah trilogy, The Watchers in Exile coming out on Monday, those of you with sharp eyes might suspect a third book is on the way. And it is! March 1st, the trilogy will be complete and I’m looking forward to seeing the bad guys get what’s coming to them.
The next release is Songs of Valor, the second of the Libri Valoris anthologies. You’re going to love it.
Following that is the next in Kevin Steverson’s Balance of Kerr series, called Accepted, follows up his great novel Burnt. Then the queue is starting to stack up. Exciting stuff.
