It’s been an unimaginably busy year for me, and yet somehow I managed to get three books finished. KILL THE BEAST came out in February, and THE HERO NEXT DOOR came out last week. The other book, THE KORBADELL JOB, is currently under review with one of my favorite publishers. It’s a middle-grade fantasy.
All this, and I moved out of state, bought a house, and started training for a new job. At least life isn’t boring.
That said, I could not have done it without my friends, the Hibberts, and my mom moved in with us too, which has been nice. Between that and a lot of praying, things have gone better than it sounds on paper.
For now, I’m spending my evenings in training for a career change. I’m getting ready to get out of trucking. It will take a few months, but I’m excited to find something that works better for me.
Here’s what’s next in the meantime:
DECEMBER: I’ve got three short stories coming out on Wattpad, in a trilogy called Engines of Winter. These are sequels to Engines of Liberty, set ten years after PATRIOT’S GAME. I’ll post one per week until they’re all live.
JANUARY: Currently the audiobook for KTB is under production. It should launch around this time.
FEBRUARY: I’ll be at LTUE in Provo, Utah. I’ll post my schedule when we get closer. LTUE is a get-together between writers, artists, musicians, and producers, and it’s one of my favorite symposiums (symposia? Damn Latin) up here.
SPRINGTIME: My next book is called HOMEWORLD, about an alien invasion. More on it as I get closer to it. It won’t be terribly long, more like KTB in length. This is a fun one.
JUNE: I’m presenting at FyreCon. More details when it’s closer.
SEPT/OCT: It’s my intention to publish another book here, but I won’t announce it until the summer. This is subject to change.
Granted, the right publishing contract could derail a lot of this…so we’ll see.
