Hi all. I’ve been quiet here on the blog lately and apologies for that. I have been writing a lot, and I’ve been writing a lot since the beginning of last year. My PROBLEM, however, is that I’ve been bouncing between FIVE projects, both indie and agent submissions, and I’ll never do that again. LEARNED MY LESSON, I did, Yoda might say. So, here is my rough upcoming schedule for 2015 (please keep in mind that most of these are entirely written as drafts and in various stages of editing) starting with the independent release of my third Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin novel, Romulus Buckle and the Luminiferous Aether.
Please sign up for my newsletter if you want to be updated on releases. I don’t send it out often and its erratic nature may be entertaining to some.
The League of the Sphinx and the Purple Scarab (action-adventure) Released Jan, 2015 and now releases free on Wattpad in May. Romulus Buckle and the Luminiferous Aether (steampunk) TBR June, 2015 WW2 Russia Historical Fiction manuscript (agent begins submissions in summer) The Illuminated Mind: medieval, new weird, a novella-sized collection of 4 short stories (Fall, 2015) Diesel City: a dieselpunk noir (agent begins submissions in winter)
Well, the book is here. The League of the Sphinx: the Purple Scarab, Kindle version, has hit the digital shelves. The paperback edition will follow shortly, but I don’t have an exact date on that. I am really going to enjoy writing this 7-installment Middle Grade/Young Adult series and I hope you guys enjoy reading it. (And you can also read the Prologue FREE and check out a nice early review of the book at The Qwillery website.)
