December 2019

Holy fucking hells, it's December already!? I swear time crawls, but before I seem to know it months have gone by. Okay let's get to it.

Okay so the big, big, big, news first. The next book was released at just after midnight this morning.
Apocalypse Gates Author's Cut book 5: Downtime and Death.

That is the last ebook published for this year. The next one is going to be Binding Words 4: Forged Bonds, with a hopeful date of Janurary 20th. Patreon is starting to get chapters of that now.

Speaking of Patreon, it will be getting an overhaul late in December, so it'll be fresh and new come Janurary. All the information for that is already up as a post on Patreon, but it includes more chapters, and at the higher tiers even merch from the online store.

Audio is next:
Alpha World 8 is slated for release Dec 10th per Podium. I don't have a preorder link yet, but when I get one I'll be giving it out to all of you as soon as I can, via; Twitter, Facebook, Discord, etc.
Audio for AG5 is being handled by Tess Irondale, she has the script and will start recording it soon. Likely a couple of months out though, think February.

I think that covers the now, and short term future. Now we can rove a bit further afield.
With RQ not having done well, I'm pushing it to a series that will get hit here or there, and trying a new series to see if it can be as well received as AG and BW. It's a magic academy-cultivation mashup, don't want to spoil anything, but the MC is a magi and taken to the academy to train so he can serve his time for the empire before he is freed from service. It also mashes eastern and western themes, heh, it's going to be a different book, but that's normal for me. I'm almost done writing it now, and it's hitting over 120k so far, which is pretty lengthy for my books, and it doesn't finish the first year, just the first half of the year at the academy.

That wraps up everything for me to talk about, so let me thank you for taking the time to read my rambling mess of a blog. The year has gone, and the next one is coming fast, I hope you will continue to enjoy my works. Have happy holidays, which ever ones you celebrate, and I'll see you in the new year.

  1. Just discovered the Binding Words series on Audible and loved it. Will check out more of your stuff. But I am curious as to how long it will take for BW4 to hit audio book after its release in January.

    1. Normally it runs at least 2 months behind for audio. I'd say maybe April for the audio.

    2. I hope that if you decide to do Delta World (and really hoping you do because myself and a group of friends love the series) I hope that you can get Peter to do the audio book. I'm absolutely in love with the book and the way that he brings life to every character.

    3. I second this. I'm a trucker and I listen to a lot of books throughout my runs. Alpha world is one of my favorites by far. Ill be checking out your other books for sure. But I really do hope for a Delta World Series.

  6. Daniel, thank you for sharing such an exciting update. I am thrilled to learn BW 4 is underway, as that is currently my all time fave series..that is saying something, as I read a fair few books. Your new series' (magi training at an academy etc.) sounds really interesting and right up my street. I eagerly anticipate 2020 now.

    Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones and once again, thank you for all your excellent work this year!

  10. For a future AG book have you thought about having the team find a huey or blackhawk. Also Kuro found a key to a truck what did she end up doing with that? Just curious
