The Admitted Slacker Speaks

Well, it’s been some time since my last post.  As a rule, I try to write one a month, but the past few months have been particularly tumultuous, and I’m just now coming out of “hiding.”

Save for the cover art, The Dagger Rose is finished and ready to publish.  The only other obstacle there is largely self-imposed.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am standing up a full-service publishing company with some partners, and I intend for Rose to be its first published work.  I find that prospect almost as exciting as publishing the book itself.  Our website is nearly complete, and we’re just finalizing the legalities of forming the company.  My goal is to go live on August 1st, but we’ll see.

The company’s second offering will be a second edition of The Iron Crown.  We plan on putting our editorial resources to work and comb through it to correct any errors I missed the first go round, and it will include a slightly updated map.  Apart from that, expect absolutely no changes to the story—that’s fixed and final.

In the meantime, I’ve already begun work on a third novel I’m tentatively calling Pale Death.  It’s not the sequel to The Iron Crown; that remains The Pride of Lions, which I am also continuing to work on as well.  It is a transitional story between the two books, and introduces some characters that will be prominent in Pride.
