Tired. I greatly enjoyed LibertyCon and the trip to and from. It was neat to meet people in person, renew a few acquaintances, finally get a piece of cake from City Diner (Seven Deadly Sins, for those who wondered. And I ate all of it in one sitting. It was very, very, very good.) Now I’m tired and a bit brain numb. Something about a story ambushing me while en route…
That story, “The Scavenger’s Gift” will release later this month. I will also finish going over reader comments on the last Powers book and get it ready to send to the editor and cover folks in August. I’m also going to try to get a bunch of the next Merchant novel done this month and early in August, before Day Job revs up.
Vaguely Familiar will come out around Christmas, if not earlier.
After that will come the last Colplatschki novel, with a release in early 2018.
I’m looking for a cover artist for the third Shikari novel at the moment, then will ask for beta readers for that one. I also will need alpha readers for the Chinese fantasy, still unnamed as of the moment.
As far as writing projects, there’s either a novella or maaaaaaayyyyybe a third novel in the Merchant world lurking around, probably more Familiar stories, and perhaps a second Chinese novel. Beyond that, I have no idea what will ambush me!
