December 2022

 Wow, we made it to the end of 2022. Color me surprised...Which I always think is a puce or maybe a fuchsia. But that's neither here nor there, so let's get to the news.

First off, we just published a book a bit over a week ago. Aether's Revival 6: Magi Guard has been released into the wilds. The continued journey of Gregory as he climbs the ranks of magi. This one was a bit of an oddity as he's learning to be a leader to his guard unit. Moreover, he only sees his wives occasionally. Really changed the dynamic some with this book. But from the first week it looks like you are all continuing to love the story, so thank you for that.

Next up coming in January is Antecedent's Legacy 1: Antecedent's Legacy. This is my sci-fantasy series. It will focus on Zander a military contractor from Earth who is yanked across the multiverse. Expect to see fantasy races, but with a sci-fi setting. This will include spaceships and stations, laser weapons, AI, Nanotech, and Mecha. Preview chapters are already on Patreon. I really hope you all enjoy this passion project that I wrote in my spare time during early 2022.

I'm currently writing DW4, the last of the series. It's been odd basically being a full book ahead, but it does mean I have an extra buffer for which I'm grateful. It's bitter-sweet writing it. I know some of you have loved it, and I thank you for that. I will give you all at least a soft ending as I hate it when people just drop series without any conclusion.

When I finish writing DW4, I'll be transitioning over to LV6. Man having heard Andie record LV5 the last week, I'm ready to dive back into Furden's troubles. There's a lot there to work on, and I hope you all stay with me on my weird west story.

Now on the audio front we have a lot to cover.

Audible is sitting on BW8. They've had it for near on two weeks now. We hope to see it released to you all soon, but it's entirely in their hands.

I just finished, literally, like a minute ago, audio proofing AR5. The corrections are with Andie, and we should be handing that off to ACX and Audible by the end of the week. If we get really lucky it might get released to you all before Christmas.

Also of note, Andie just finished recording LV5. That is with her audio proofer and I'll likely get it in a couple of weeks to listen to for corrections. She has really been pushing to clear the backlog.

Starting as of December 1st, Andie will be recording BW9 on her Discord. With the way she's trucking she'll have it done recording by mid-month. If she does, we should be able to turn it around by the end of the year, which means maybe a late January release from Audible for you all.

And the last note, if things go well, she will record AR6 before she takes her Christmas vacation. If she manages it then it's very likely audio could be in your hand by February. This is the hope we have.

Oh, and I should mention that Andie has agreed to do Antecedent's Legacy. It should be in her February recording schedule, or early March, depending on how things go.

That was a lot of audio news, and I'm happy to be able to share it all with you.
I do have a giveaway I'll be doing on Facebook this month, so make sure to pop onto the fan page there to have a chance to win a signed copy of a book. It'll be a weird one as I'll be giving away unclaimed copies of books to a few lucky fans.

Oh, speaking of giving things away, the Live Chat will be December 16th at 6 pm Pacific time. The usual ramble followed by challenge coin giveaway will happen then. Hope to see as many of you as possible. I might even have a guest for a bit of it...not positive yet, but perhaps.

Okay that should cover it all. Happy Holidays, and I hope to be back for the blog in January 2023.
