Hello everyone and welcome back. My deepest and most sincere apologies for the long break between blog posts.
I’d like to say I’ve been busy on new projects/continuing series, but the simple truth is that the ongoing pandemic has kept me almost too busy to write. As many of my readers know, I am a father and husband first, a Nurse Practitioner second, and a writer third. The sheer volume of patients we see on a daily basis has made it nearly impossible to devote any time to writing while at work, and the number of days I’ve had to pick up to manage staffing shortfalls has limited my time at home.
But don’t worry. Though delayed, nothing has been canceled or forgotten.
I’m about 80% through the first draft of The Chosen Cycle Book 4, and it will probably be my first release of 2021. Ascendancy, Book 3 of The Chosen Cycle, released last month and is doing well.
The next installment in The Richards Saga, The Middle Child, is fully outlined, with perhaps 20% of the first draft completed.
The biggest wait will be for those anticipating the next Night Zero book. Third Act is outlined and started, though I’ve only managed to get one character’s arc completed. It will come, and hopefully sometime next year, so long as the coming flu season doesn’t completely derail my plans. Your support for this particular series has been nothing short of amazing. Night Zero has risen to a Number 1 spot on Amazon, and continues to draw in new readers every day.
Project: Heritage will also be receiving its long overdue sequel. Project: Genesis will (hopefully) debut sometime in 2022, after the conclusion of The Chosen Cycle. The timing is important, as those who have read both series understand.
And, while I don’t talk about it much, The Dungeon is nearing the end of its 2-year exclusivity with Covenant Books, at which time it will return fully to my control. I can’t wait to dig into it, fix the things I know need to be fixed, and get it out on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.
The good news is, our staffing shortages have been corrected, so at least I will have more time at home, which means more time to write. I thank you for your support and beg for your continued patience as we all work to do our part during these unprecedented times.
Good things are coming. With just a little delay.
Thank you all again. Stay safe. Stay healthy. And keep reading.
