As I creep around third base toward home on Come, Seeling Night, it occurs to me that this has been a pretty amazing year.
Considering some of the other (unpublished) stuff I’ve written, it seems to strange to say that my story in the upcoming anthology The Hundred Worlds dips my toe into more pure science fiction waters, but there it is. It’s an interesting shared universe, and the story was a fun little diversion to write while I was working on A Place for War.
The main character, Reed Dyson, is a lot of fun to write, so (hint, hint!) check it out here and maybe I’ll get the chance to return to him in the not-so-distant future.
Meanwhile, work progresses well on Come, Seeling Night, and I should have it turned into the publisher by the end of next month. As always, I appreciate your support. Here’s hoping your holidays are awesome!
The films Alien and Aliens have been two of my favorites since I saw the first in 4th or 5th grade. This was the dark era (before Blockbuster) when new-release movies cost well in excess of $100 and rentals from the mom-and-pop video stores required a credit card or a canceled check on file. Both of those were out of reach for my precocious self, and as far as my mom was concerned, if I couldn’t check it out of the library, I didn’t need to see it. Continue reading
The trilogy is complete. Amazon’s secret squirrels haven’t dotted all their I’s and crossed all their T’s, so the paperback version isn’t linked up with the eBook, yet, but they are live and ready. Enjoy!
Declan Finn is much too kind here. Mainly because I suspect Jim Butcher has everything meticulously planned out up to books twenty-something through thirty-something. I’m doing well if I’ve got a trilogy nailed down.
Speaking of which, I’m circling around the halfway point of Come, Seeling Night, which ends Paxton’s adventures … for this arc, anyway. What, you didn’t think I was going to throw in the towel, did you? As CSN comes together, I’m assembling the blueprints for the next trilogy in my head. I hope to get book four out late next year. Once I’m done with book three, though, I’m switching gears a bit to work on Vigilance.
In between the Heroes Unlimited book and Pax 4 is a little something I like to call ‘Project X.’ Mostly because the title would be a huge spoiler of what’s to come … and who likes spoilers? Project X is a Pax universe book, but it does more to fill in the backstory of another character. Too say any more would spoil the fun, and it’ s going to be hard enough keeping it to myself when I actually start writing. Suffice to say that it’s the reason I tried to get A Place Outside The Wild out of my head as X was the book I really, really wanted to write.
