07/19/2014 - Lots going on!
First of all, Lodestone Book Six is with the editors and is due out in a matter of weeks. It's now been re-named, "Eternity's Shadow".
In the meantime, "The Arc of the Universe" is now moving right along. Though it's not set in the Lodestone universe, it's a unique story and I'm pretty excited about it. Following the Amazon's announcement of Kindle Unlimited, I'm going to start releasing this in episodes on Kindle shortly. Eventually, it will be available on all formats as with my other books. I'll keep you updated!
04/07/2014 - STOP PRESS! Just discovered yesterday that due to a technical glitch, I haven't been getting messages directed through the Contact page. This has now been FIXED, so if you wrote to me before and didn't get a reply, profuse apologies. I would LOVE to hear from you either on the Blog (the tab to the right of this one!) or via the Contact page. I endeavor to reply to each and every message, and I am happy to answer any questions (or at least, try to!)
FYI, Lodestone Book Six: A Fall of Ash is now about 85 percent done. I anticipate a Summer 2014 release. This will round out the second Trilogy, and I can promise a LOT of twists, turns and surprises! The next project will be one of those listed on the "Other Books" tab. Lodestone has been a blast, but I have other stories I want to explore. Will I ever return to the Lodestone Universe? As Boxx would say, "The Future Is A Forest Of Forking Paths!"
