June 2021

 Wow, May is over with already, and it's now Summer with June kicking the heat off.

Let's cover books news first then we'll touch a few other topics.

Dungeon Walkers 1 came out late last month, thank you to everyone who read the story. I have a lot in mind for the continued adventures of Stern, Pawly, and Company. I started with news of this series because the audio book just came out.

No, seriously, it's already out. Mountain Dale Press used their twisted eldritch magic to get it before Travis Baldree in record time. Travis of course is a well known and loved narrator, whose done Cradle and other well known series. MDP didn't stop there though, no they summoned elder gods and got ACX and Audible to bend to their whims, and got it published in record time too.

Here is the Audible link for those who would like a quick path to it: https://www.audible.com/pd/Dungeon-Walkers-1-Audiobook/B095Z5JLP7

Going to continue on the audio front with the next bit.

Andie is going to be recording Luck's Voice 1-3 in the next few weeks. That's right she is going to record them back-to-back-to-back. So the books will drop in rapid succession as well. So rejoice for that.

As for BW6 and AR3 audio they are on her slate along with a lot of other books so they will come in time. Being as amazing as she is her slate is solidly booked. She is going to get to them though so just be patient, her work is amazing, and it'll be worth the wait.

You are probably asking about LV3 as it's not even out as an ebook yet. Well I have it currently slated for release on June 15th, a whole half month ahead of my previous estimate. Now to make that even better I hope to have it out even before that. It's with the proofer and compiler right now, so hopefully soon™...

As for what I'm working on right now, well that's Binding Words 7. I think this book will wrap up the Hearthglen arc that started with Book 3. Time will tell but I'm fairly certain it is going to. Current projected release will be August 15th, with of course me aiming to get it out sooner than that.

Following BW7 will of course be AR4. I'm really looking forward to diving back into that series and pushing Gregory through the end of the second year. I have so many things lined up that it should be an amazing ride for you all.

Now onto other news. I just got back from a long weekend away. Yeah, it ended up a business trip instead of a vacation, and LV will see bits of that research in the coming books. My trip took me to a hot springs in Colorado. The trip also helped me see how things were in general. It gives me hope that my research trip for AG can happen before the end of the year, woot woot. Some locations I want to visit are still closed, but I hope they will reopen soon. As soon as they do I'll be taking my trip. No, I'm not going to tell you were, that'd ruin the surprises.

One last bit of note: I had a 1 day ban from Facebook. Why? Because some posted a meme about Writer's Block being when your imaginary friends refuse to talk with you. I replied that you just kill a few of them to prove the point to the others. Well that trip the algorithm and I got banned. The really bad news is that the ban included a 30 day ban on Live chats...thanks Facebook. I'm looking at other options for June's live chat. Probably going to be on the discord. Time will be 8 am PST. Here is the discord link:  https://discord.gg/vCKm3NU

That wraps up the news for June, damn that was a lot. I will see you all again for July's blog.
