I’m asked on occasion if I’m working on anything, and if I have any books coming out soon. The answer to those two questions are ‘always’ and ‘no.’ I’m always working on something, but with no books currently under contract, there’s nothing coming in the near future – though hopefully that’ll change before too long.
I have written three novels since All My Holy Mountain was published.
(1) The Crime Novel – I wrote a crime novel first. After spending the better part of six years writing my fantasy series, it was good to write something so different, that stood alone and that could be completed in less than a year. Currently, that novel is on the proverbial ‘backburner.’
(2) TDR – I finished this past Fall the book I’ve alluded to on this blog as ‘TDR.’ It is intended as the first part of an epic fantasy series. I’ve recently started shopping this manuscript, and I’ve already had some really helpful editorial feedback. Consequently, I’ll be shortly undertaking a partial rewrite to make an already strong story stronger. Then I’ll be getting back to the ‘shopping it around’ phase.
(3) Classic Re-imagined – The third novel is the classic story, re-imagined, that I mentioned last year. I started it last summer and just finished it, like ten minutes ago. I’m pretty excited about it, but as I’m pretty determined to try to sell it in the general market, I have no idea how that will go.
So there it is, the current state of things. My apologies to fans of The Binding of the Blade. I never intended for such a long break after the conclusion of that series, but life doesn’t always play out the way we intend, and sometimes we just have to keep moving ahead in the dark. I hope the wait will soon be over and prove to have been worth it. Thanks for bearing with me.
