February 2021

 Here we are again, but it's February of 2021 now. We have a few things to cover so let's get to it.

Firstly BW6 came out last month and you all seemed to enjoy it. I'm really glad that you forgave me for how BW5 ended. I've seen more love for how BW6 ended, and that makes me really happy.

Speaking of BW5 though, the audio book came out just a few days ago. And to ruin a surprise for you all, there is a small preview of BW6 tacked onto the end, enough that the cliffhanger should be vastly reduced. Here is the link:

Now that we've talked Binding Words, let's move onto Aether's Revival. I'm still working on AR3, and man it's going to be another thick one. Not done yet and already close to 130k words written. That longer than the longest BW, and by the time I finish it will easily be the second longest, or longest book I've written. Now that does come with a major drawback, it'll take longer to push through editing, beta reading, proofing, and publishing. This is why I'm unlikely to change the current projected release date, which is currently March 25th. Hang on now, if and this is a big if, if things sail smoothly I might be able to get it out earlier, but I would doubt it'll be more than a week or two earlier. So don't get your hopes up for it.

There is one bright spot to the delay, and that is that the audio for AR2 has a good chance of being out before I publish. Andie finished recording it, and we've handed it off to ACX. Now they never give us a projected release date, but if things go good it might, maybe be before the end of the month. Keep an eye on Discord, Facebook, or Twitter as I'll drop links on them as soon as it does go live.

Oh and before I forget Patreon is currently getting preview chapters of AR3.


Those are the big news items. The lesser item I need to talk about is projected release schedule. I've been waffling on what will come after AR2, and I still am a little, but at this point it's safe to bet on me going for a new book. I'm not going to be able to make the trip I want to make for AG, and I don't want to push LV forward right away. So I'll be starting on the new project once AR finishes. I know you're all wondering what it'll be, but I'm still waffling on that.

Right at this moment, and this isn't set ins tone, I'm considering the dungeon series. I've given it some thought and I have a nice framework on what I think will work for it. Won't be positive until I get words down, but it is edging the mecha story a little bit.


Not a lot else to talk about for February. Live chat on Facebook is going to be the 16th at 10 am PST. Going early this time to give people across the Atlantic a good chance to show up. I'm sure others will as well, but I want to do an early one this time, which means I'll probably do a late one next month. So I hope to see those of you who can make it.

That's all I got. I'll do the obligatory postings here for website and such for those who wonder about them. Links:

Thanks again, it's because of fans like you I can devote myself to fulltime writing.

Until next time, stay safe.

  3. Are you looking for any beta readers for AR3? Honestly this is one of the series keeping me sane after my shifts as an ER nurse... during a pandemic.. (note to self, cross work as an ER nurse during a pandemic off the bucket list)

    1. To be fair the next slot should be AG8, so LV isn't being moved anywhere, it'll still come up when it should.

    1. I write each book in rotation, doesn't feel like a large load to me.
      Glad you are enjoying my work.
