…but the work never stops.
Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered Surrogacy. I hope you’re enjoying the continuation of The Chosen Cycle, and that you aren’t too upset over the cliff-hanger ending. Don’t worry, the story will continue. I’m not finished with Ascendancy yet, but that’s more because the muse has pulled me elsewhere.
“But what could be more important than continuing Johnny’s story?” you ask.
I’ll tell you.
Night Zero 2. I don’t have a better name for it yet, sorry. I’m tossing some ideas around in my head, but haven’t settled on one. Night Zero: Third Dawn is my current favorite. The story sits at 60,000 words now (as compared to 20,000 when I posted my last blog) so it’s coming along. At this rate, you won’t have to wait until summer, either. It will most likely be my second release of 2020.
Now for another bit of news. The Dungeon was published by Covenant Books, so they have some stakes in it for the duration of my 2-year contract with them. I don’t want to publish through them again, because I’m not entirely happy with their editing process, and I’m unable to have the book re-edited without paying a fee, something I’m absolutely against. So, I’m going to hold off on releasing its sequel until the contract expires in 2021. at that point, I’ll go a different route, get it edited to my standards, and re-release it alongside The Fall of Icarus, which is its intended sequel.
And finally, as my followers may have noticed, there is a gorgeous cover floating around for Into Darkness, which is the sequel to Brightness. I am extremely proud of this book and feel it ranks right up there with Night Zero for sheer thrilling excitement. If you haven’t read Brightness, you should. Then, get ready for the story to continue on January 7, 2020. I’ve attached the cover below, and am happy to announce the sequel is available for pre-order through Amazon.
So, the current plan for 2020 is: Into Darkness, Night Zero 2, and Ascendancy. My other project, Crossed Souls is also a possibility. I’ll have more on that next time, including a possible sneak peek.
Stay warm as winter closes in.
