I hope you’re all doing well! This week’s post is coming a bit late in the day as I had an appointment with an overgrown lawn and an uncooperative lawnmower… 45 mins work expanded to 3 hours. 3 hours of my life I’ll never get back…
Anyway, back on schedule after a bit of a longer work day, and I’m only now getting to my Monday post (after taking last Monday as a post release break!). (If you missed it, The Demon Hunter – Blood of Kings 3 is now out, you can pick up a copy here – Amazon)
This week I want to talk a little bit about what I’ve got lined up next, now that the Blood of Kings trilogy is complete. I’ve a few things on the production line, but have been turning my mind to what my next big project will be, and where they will take me.
The first thing is the new series set in a new story world that I’ve been ideating for quite some time now. I’ve mentioned this a few times recently, but things are a bit more advanced now. I’ve actually almost completed the first draft of book 1 in that series, and I have to say I really can’t wait to show it to you guys. I think it’s the best thing I’ve written to date, and I think you’ll really enjoy it (at least, I really hope you will!). I don’t want to say too much more about it just yet, but announcements will be coming before the end of the year!
I’ve a couple of side projects that I want to apply some time to, something that I’ve been asked about a bit over the years, namely special edition hardcovers. It’s early days in terms of planning, but I’m hoping to do some limited edition box set hard covers, probably by way of a Kickstarter. I’ll have more details on that a little later in the year!
On the sci-fi side of things, I’ve been really enjoying writing the Alpha Protocol series, and intend to continue with that for at least 3-4 more books, depending on how the plotting work unfolds. I’ve also got another sci-fi series in the works based around an infantry unit, more on that early next year!
Finally, while clearing out some old backup drives, I discovered the outlines for additional books in one of my earlier fantasy trilogies that I had planned to write, but then my Tor deal came along and I moved on to other things. I’ve been reading through them, and want to rework them a bit, but I plan to write and release them, ideally over the next 18-24 months. I don’t want to say too much more about it now, but I have to admit I’m really excited at the prospect of getting to spend more time with some old friends!
Anyone want to have a guess at which of my 3 older trilogies I’m talking about???
All in all, lot’s to keep me busy, and lot’s of things that I’m really very excited about getting to work on!
Ok, it’s getting late here, so time to quit for the day! Until next week, take care!
