Warm. It’s July in Texas.
August 5 and 6 I will be at AmaCon, the pop-culture Con in Amarillo that is sponsored by the Amarillo Public Library. I will be with Peter Grant, Dorothy Grant, J. L. Curtis, and the Lawdog. I will have books available for purchase and to sign, or you can BYO. (Carpathian Campaign and Alexander, Soldier’s Son. Ivan’s paw-tograph is available for the Alexi book).
Shikhari, the first book in that series, will be out in September. It is suitable for younger readers, say 13 and up, but I’m not marketing it as YA.
Grasping for the Crowns, the second Powers book (WWI Alt-history) will be out in late November or early December. Against a Rising Tide will be out probably next summer or perhaps I’ll wait and do an Armistice Day release.
In Sheltering Talons is the last Cat book, and is scheduled for early 2018. I have a lot more material but 1) sales are declining and 2) this ends on an upbeat note.
Fountains of Mercy, Colplatschki #8, will follow later in the spring. Because of decreasing sales, I have decided not to release #11.
I also anticipate releasing Staré, the second Shikhari book, next spring.
There may be an urban fantasy short-story set coming out this fall. I have not gotten the stories written yet, so that’s up in the air.
I suspect there will be a sequel to Of Merchant and Magic. There is also an alt-hist steampunk story, possibly a novella, set in Hamburg that I’m working on, and an idea for an Asian-flavored fantasy novel that I’ve started research on. No, I’m not going to go all Guy Gavriel Kay on the material. Song Dynasty, and not nearly as long as his take on the Tang Dynasty. I don’t do casts of tens-of-thousands.
The pre-historic fantasy is on the back burner for the moment. I suspect I need to do a little more research before it gels.
