This month is a fairly short update, but overall things are moving well and I’m excited by how these projects are going.
The Traitor and the Thief
The manuscript for this book is essentially complete. I’ve got a couple of scenes that I’m going back to rewrite, but that will be done by the end of this coming week.
I will then leave the manuscript to sit for a couple of weeks to clear my mind of it, before I go back and do another pass to see how everything hangs together and smooth out any rough spots.
Then, it’s off to editing.
This month’s short story is one that is very personal to me. I wrote it a few years ago, but I’ve kept it private until now. I’ll reveal more next week when I put it up on the site.
As mentioned in the list of projects last month, I’ve put the Kaus Kagunvar story The Broken Temple of Yinak on hold until I can give it my undivided attention. So, I don’t expect it to be ready as March’s free short story, but if everything holds up well on my schedule, you should see this one in April.
Tales of the Undying Empire
The next project on my list is to get the Tales of the Undying Empire Omnibus out on Kindle. I’ll start tackling the issues with that shortly, and I hope to have it out by this time next month.
Both Origin—the story I wrote for my son—and the third book in the Undying Empire: Rebellion trilogy, The Revenant and the Reaper, are on the list. With the completion of the manuscript for The Traitor and the Thief, things are moving well and I expect to get started on these in the next few months.
I’m really happy with how things are progressing, and I hope to see you back here next week.
