What's going on

Firewall, the final book in the Magic Born trilogy, is now out of edits and in production. Yay! It should be released in December.

So what's next? Stuff. Various and sundry. I don't know. Those answers are all true. Soon I'm going to be trying out self-publishing, first with a backlist title. Bring On The Night was the very first thing I had published and the rights have since reverted back to me. I've done some light revising and created a new cover. Look for that probably next month.

After that will be Bradbury. I've decided I'm not going to keep posting it as a weekly serial. Frankly, it's going to be much easier for me to write the stories as novellas and release them that way than keep up with a  weekly commitment. About six weeks or so after I release Bring On The Night, I'll release the first Bradbury volume. About six weeks after that, I'll release the second volume. Then sometime after that, Firewall will release. This is all stuff that's completed. I need to make covers for the Bradbury books, and of course Carina Press will handle production of Firewall. I'm currently writing the third Bradbury novella, which I hope to release around Valentine's Day of next year. After that, my release schedule will slow down. I just have all this stuff sitting on my hard drive right now and I'd like to get it out there.

Right now I don't know what's going to happen with the Mojo series. And when I say I don't know, I mean story-wise. I had ideas for where to take the series, but I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with those outlines, or even when I might be able to write the books. I've tried working on it some, but I've found it's really hard for me to go back to this world. I'd like to bring it to some sort of suitable ending, but right now my head's just not in it.

So I'm working on Bradbury 3 and I'm getting some stuff ready to self-publish and I'm developing what may turn into The Next New Thing. Hopefully. And I'm hoping to be around on the blog more often. Post at least once a week starting this week, have some friends over to talk about their books.

So that's what's going on lately. Oh, and there's this ->

For those about to rock...

My sweet little rock 'n' roller is now two!

Witchlight is released and Trancehack is on sale!

Release day for Witchlight, the second Magic Born book, is finally here!

In 2066, the Magic Born are segregated in urban reservations. The laws do not protect them, or their allies.  
Councilwoman Elizabeth Marsden is a powerful player in New Corinth politics, but a closely guarded secret could destroy her life—she's a hidden Magic Born. Her family has gone to great lengths to erase all her magic-related records, until a trancehacking outlaw discovers the last remaining one…  
Vadim Bazarov smuggles Magic Borns through the underground railroad and threatens to reveal Elizabeth's secret unless she helps him access blank ID cards. Elizabeth wants to hate him for having a stranglehold on her life, but can't help being attracted to someone so sure of who and what he is.  
Vadim initially sees her as a political ice queen, but is intrigued by her suppressed magical abilities. He trains Elizabeth to use her magic, and before long finds himself falling for her. But their newfound love may be shortlived; an anti-magic ordinance forces one of them to make a choice that will change both their lives for good.
You can purchase Witchlight at Carina Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailers. Read an excerpt here.

And for a short time, Trancehack is on sale for .99! So if you haven't picked up a copy, now's a great time to dive into the magic-meets-cyberpunk world of the Magic Born. Find it at Carina Press, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble as well as other online retailers.

Firewall, the exciting (and riot filled!) conclusion of the Magic Born trilogy will be released in December.
