What’s Up

Okay, I get that I seem to have disappeared lately. That’s a fair assessment. To set the record straight, I am not dead, I am not sick, and I am not suffering from anything keeping me away from writing beyond life. But I changed jobs around the first of this year, and as a result, I don’t have the same amount of writing time that I used to. But I am writing, and I do still intend to get what I owe my readers out eventually.

Here’s where we’re at with the ones people have been asking about.

The Knight’s Folly (Twin Magic 3): This is the big one, naturally. Remind me to never promise publication dates for sequels. I suggested I’d get this out mid-2015, which means it’s two years late. Hey, at least I’m not as late as George R.R. Martin is with the Winds of Winter. But I set out to address some of the criticisms of the first two books with this one, namely that they were too short and rushed over things people wanted more of. So I’m aiming at 100k words on this one. I’m not there yet. I won’t tell you where I’m at, but there’s a ways to go yet. Some hints: Hans and Julia are back. The third color will be revealed. There’s going to be a war. Martin Luther puts in an appearance. Beyond that, who knows?

Scorpion (A Dark Web 3 2): I actually started this one before Spider was even released, but didn’t get all that far. I’ve written a bit more here and there. All I can tell you is that most of it takes place in Africa, it’s even darker than the first one (there are two murders in the first chapter alone), and the title refers to Makayla. The rest you’ll have to wait for.

  1. Good to hear. Looking forward to the third Twin Magic book. It’s been a year since I read the second Twin Magic book but from what I remember, the second book still left some unanswered questions, like why Erich has magic, why it’s seems quite strong despite his non-magical heritage, and etc. The second book seems more like a side quest and an early exploration of the twin’s magics so I think that’s why it felt so short and rushed because more concepts were introduced but didn’t really feel like they were fully explored or provided some resolutions. Loved the historical settings (along with its own story) that each book takes place in.

    Btw, how long will the series be?
