April 2020

Well hell, the world has gotten a little weird in the last month. Let's not let that detour us from this social distanced post.

What is going on, well first off let's start with good news, gods know we could use some of that. BW4: Forged Bonds audio, has been sent off to ACX so it can be released into the wilds. Sadly, there's some bad news here, ACX has been well behind on getting audio released. Which means we are still a ways out from it being in your hands.

Let's get back to the good news. AG6: Can of Worms has been started by the beta readers. What does this mean for all of you? It means we will be getting the book out before May. How far before? Not sure yet, but at the moment it looks good.

My editors have started in on the western gamelit, which has a series name now, Luck's Voice. I had a lot of fun writing it, and I hope you'll all enjoy it. it's a harem book. Actually it's more harem than many of my books, as the MC doesn't hesitate as much as some of my others to accept the idea of multiple partners.

What else? Oh I'm running sales on all of the AG books. It started on the 30th, and will run though to the 16th. Each book in succession goes on sale for a few days, with the price increasing back to normal each day it's on sale.
As for audio for AG, I've handed those off to Podium, and they have Tess lined up to continue the narration of them. What does that mean for you? The production of them should be a bit more streamlined, and the art won't be the same as the ebook.

I'm sure some of you are wondering about Aether's Revival too. The series had an amazing first month. I was surprised, pleasently, by how well received it was. Thank you, all of you, for reading, reviewing, and spreading the word. It will be the third full book in the rotation, to go with AG and BW.

Back to Binding words news. I've started in on BW5 already. It's moving right along, over 20,000 words so far. Some fun stuff, and more people joining the family. I can't wait to see what happens next, just like you.

What was that? What about Aether's audio? Well, Andie will be narrating it, and she's a bit busy, and she came down sick, we're wishing her a speedy recovery. See when a narrator gets sick, they lose the one thing they need to work...their voice. She's currently on a different project, and might get waylaid by the Wandering Inn 2, but after those are handled she'll be moving onto Aether's. I can't wait to hear her voices for the characters there.

Oh, before I forget Discord and Facebook both have contests running for ebooks or audio books for AG. If you want to get in stop by and join in the fun.

I think that's it...oh almost forgot the next Live Chat on Facebook is going to be April 15th at 8 PM PDT. So late for the East coast and way to damned early for those across the pond in Europe, but I like to shift days and times so as many people as possible can have a chance to make it.

Okay that's it...yeah, I think so anyway...

Until next month, remember to stay safe.

  1. Super excited for the audio of BW4 I can't wait to hear what Andie's take on the succubi are. Owing to amount of free time we have seem to find lately my weekly D&D games happen with more frequency. Last time a gathering occurred BW stole most of the game nerdy discussions sometimes will do that. My little group of folks would like to hear your thoughts. Who would you get to play the roles of Sean, Fiona, Myna? We came up with James Macavoy, Amy Adams, Chloe Grace Moretz respectively. Thanks for all your hard please keep it up.

    1. That's hard as I'm terrible with names and don't watch TV and rarely movies. That's a good discussion for Facebook or Discord though. So images can be shared.

    2. Ha Ha neither were many of us. Most of the talk went like that woman from so and so, and remember that guy from that thing. We had to Google most of the names we came up with.

    1. It hasn't been released yet. Podium jumped the gun a bit.

  5. Potential spoiler alert
    Dude just finished can of worms, gave it 4 out of five. Middle got a little repetitive with visiting towns. End was awesome, loved the return and difficulty increase with the zombies. Love the gear set up for the next one. Would like to see other players, possible fan interaction and more character growth from Jarvis. Also the three replies/acknowledgment from the wives should be less frequent or have more variety. Big fan can't wait for the next book. Sorry for the critique its not like I'm writing a book but maybe a few things to think about.

  6. Just finished your latest ag book and i was wondering why you went with the bradley instead of something like the bearcat armoured car. Now i get the heavier armour and the heavier 25mm gun but the slow speed of about 35mph makes me wonder if its worth it. The bearcat is used by swat teams and has less armour and it has a mount for a machinegun but it has a speed of about 90mph and can hold 10 people plus it has gun ports or the army stryker. Not critiquing your work just curious of the vehicle selection. Dont get me wrong i am looking forward to Alvin kicking as in a Bradley but just curious

    1. Armor and gun is the short answer, the Bradley they picked up also has seats in the back for a number of people.
