Four months down and 8 to go. That is just how the year feels to me so far.
Hoping that May will start to ease off the problems, and we can have nice quiet days again.
Let's jump into book news first. Luck's Voice 6: Emerita's Boxing Day came out on April 5th. I hope those of you who read it enjoyed the ride. It was a bit different, but not everything is going to be old west shootouts either. It's sets the series for some big shifts that should come in book 7, but that's a ways off yet.
What isn't aways off is the audio for LV6. I just finished up audio proofing that. Andie will likely get the corrections turned around in short order then it'll be in the hands of ACX and Audible. If things go well you might see it this month. But it's always a gamble with ACX so it might be June. I'll of course post on social media when I see it go up.
Speaking of audio, Antecedents' Legacy audio is up for preorder A reminder that the series is done by Andie, but is published through Podium, hence the preorder. I really hope you audiophiles enjoy this sci-fantasy series. The book goes live on May 30th.
To finish off audio news. DW4 is with Mountain Dale Press and should be approved by Audible this coming week. With of course the caveat that it might be delayed by them. But it will be the next audio book you can grab to listen to. Stephanie Savanah returned to narrate this one for us. It does a soft wrap on the series. I hope you enjoyed the look at Delta World through the eyes of Stern.
Okay we've hit what came last and audio news. That means we should talk about what will be published next. That is Binding Words 10: Truestrike's Treachery, which is currently getting preview chapters on Patreon. It is currently slated for a June release, as the book is going through edits currently.
Sean has a lot on his plate in this one, hope you enjoy it.
The book I'm currently writing is of course Aether's 7. Gregory's adept posting along the northern wilds. It's going to be different for him, he has none of his usual safety nets in his clan and wives there to assist him. It'll be a book to see how he does on his own, well and with his unit of magi guards.
May also sees a few important dates for me as a writer. I'll have been on Patreon for 6 years on the 10th of the month. That's a little boggling to me, but yeah it checks out. I'm forever grateful to the fans who've gone above and beyond to support me there.
The other important date is the 21st, which will mark 5 years as a fulltime author. Now that is kind of a mindfuck for me. It really doesn't feel like it's been 5 years. I'll be holding a giveaway on various forums for that. Discord and Facebook will see giveaways. I have some books I can sign and ship to people, plus a few other things like the highly prized cameo/red-shirt appearances for the books. So if you want in on the prizes make sure to check social media in the coming weeks.
Just one last thing to call out. The live chat will be on the 15th at 12pm pacific time. It's held over on Twitch so, if you want the chance to win a challenge coin that's where you need to be.
Until June comes and the heat kicks up a notch, stay safe.
