Current project: RISE OF THE DRAMAN.
This series of medieval-ish fantasy novelettes follows the life of an orphan named Croft and his dragon. For now, the stories are FREE on my blog, so start reading with DRAGON CHILD!
(Note: Book 5 is now complete and has been released on my blog in serial form for a limited time. The last step will be a thorough edit of the entire series before publishing as a one volume collection – probably Jan/Feb of 2020.)
Next Project: ???
I honestly don’t know! I wanted to start on something new, but then again I’m thinking I should get book three of Gladstone Shifters done first (see the two paragraphs below).
Sci-Fi or Fantasy
I have plans for two different series: Scattered Humanity (Sci-Fi) or Curiosity Shoppe (Mixed Genre/Fantasy). Both are envisioned as a series of shorter works loosely tied together by a common theme. Either idea allows me to use some of the great ideas waiting in my files, but don’t lend themselves to novel length works.
Forbidden Moon, Gladstone Shifters Book 3.
Part of me is eager to get back to the series, but the time commitment is holding me back. It took nine months to write and publish book two, and sales were very disappointing. It’s difficult to justify devoting that much time to a project which may not produce results. Personally, I think the problem was inadequate marketing and too-few reviews, not a poor quality story. So, yes, I want to write the next book but don’t know when that will be!
I have toyed with the idea of something seasonal for Christmas or Valentines. It would require a lot of advance planning to get it written, edited and launched at the appropriate time, but it’s a good back-burner idea. There’s certainly no lack of romance ideas in my files!
My Galactic Neighborhood novels need revision, editing and new covers. I have no idea when I will have the time or money to pursue this project. Meanwhile, the books will be available as-is.
RECONSIDERING: Retail Men series
Green’s Thumb, too, requires an overhaul – including significant new material and a new cover. It is also possible I will relaunch it as a stand-alone and start a new series with older characters. Reader feedback tells me fans really appreciated a 50+ gay romance, and there aren’t a lot of books out there for this demographic.
More Paranormal/Fantasy – Future books may include bear and cat shifters, elves, fairies, brownies, genies, giants, merfolk, cupids, and unicorns. I’m eager to write about all of them! (some of these ideas may show up in the Curiosity Shoppe series – see note above)
Types of stories I won’t write.
You’ll have to find a different author if you are looking for books with angels, demons, witches, vampires, or zombies. They just aren’t my cup of tea.
My first novel, Second Chance Earth is no longer available for purchase. Why? See my blog post for the explanation.
