December News and Updates

My biggest update is that my newest book project is starting to come together. I'm planning to announce it sometime in early January, and I'm really excited about how it is all coming together.

If you want to find out about the project before the listing goes live on Kickstarter, you can find it on my site.

I've never actually run a kickstarter campaign for one of my books before, so this is something extremely excited I'm interested in trying. I've been working with a class on this, so there will be quite a few of us running these campaigns together.

I'm anticipating it beginning on January 8th and notifications going out to people shortly thereafter, so stay tuned for more updates about what is coming!


I'm also working on finishing The Bishop's Legacy to meet its launch day of January 30th. I'll do my best to get early copies of that book out to my reader team before it goes live! Quick reminder, though, that CRISPR will only have advance copies by supporting the campaign, so if you're going to want an early copy of that book (months early, at that) you're going to have to support the campaign!

Don't worry, though, because there are some other amazing things you can get for your support, including custom artwork, bookmarks, screensavers, and paperback copies!


Apart from that, my next project is going to be finishing up Last Light in the Dark, re-working Graveyard of Empires a little bit, and focusing back on the space opera books I've been neglecting for a while. It's something I really want to work on, so hopefully I can make some progress on those books throughout the middle of 2018.

That is a series I enjoy writing, so it definitely doesn't fit into a recognizable genre or style. I have some huge plans for it, though, and really intend to work hard to get more books out in 2018 and do the series justice.


My next post will include a little bit more of a postmortem about 2017. What went well, what didn't go so well, and the lessons I've learned for enhancing my book launch strategy and career for next year. It was a lot of fun launching the World of Shadows series, and it will only be a short break from that universe before I come back and fill in some of the open sections (including a continuation of Abigail and Haatim's story after Raven's Rise).
