Scribbling like a mad scribbling thing

So summer turns to fall, and then next thing you know it's dark out at 3 in the afternoon.  Seems like it, anyway.  It happens every year, so you'd think I'd be used to it by now.

I'm working on the first draft of Book 3, which is the sequel to Burnt Worlds.  It's going great, at a steady 2500-3000 words per day, and I'm having a lot of fun with it. 

In the meantime, I'm starting to get some feedback from beta readers & editors about Book 2 (still calling it Magic Comes to Whiteport, though that might change).  On the whole, it seems to be in good shape, and mostly just in need of a really good polishing.

My original plan was to put #3 on hold and edit #2 (MCtW) to get it ready, but since the draft is going so well, I'm going to carry on with #3 until it's done.  So while #2 will be pushed back to Q1 2016, I think that #3 should be ready by Q2.

This is all assuming, of course, that nothing comes up to mess the schedule.  You know, like a zombie apocalypse, or an alien invasion, or something.


  1. Just wanted to say I'm really looking forward to the Burnt Worlds sequel. The interesting characters and clever worldbuilding really put that book a cut above most of the stuff in the Kindle store.

    1. Thank you sir! I'm having a lot of fun with the next one, and hope it will be at least as good. A few new characters, a few new places. And maybe an explosion or two.
