People have been hopefully asking me about future Hive Mind books, and stories about Fortuna. I have so many ideas for books I want to write that I had a backlog of projects building up anyway, and side-effects from the current world situation have slowed down my writing. Jarra confused things even further by making the New Year story so long that the Earth Prime collection queue-jumped everything else.
So this is a quick status report on my current projects. Please note that I can’t guarantee to publish even two books a year in the current world situation, and any of my projects can go off totally off the rails at the best of times.
The Earth Prime collection has to be finished and published next.
Hive Mind 5 will then be my top priority and hopefully out in time for Christmas, but there’s the usual danger of it slipping into January.
Fortuna. If there’s enough interest in Earth Prime then I’ll be aiming to write more about Fortuna, ideally next year. A project that is slightly complicated by it being the second half of the chimera wars, and interlinking with my partially written book about Tellon Blaze.
Also on my list to progress whenever I have time. Scavenger Exodus 3 and Earth and Water.
(Just to clarify Scavenger Exodus 3 is definitely on its way, but progress has been affected by the world situation, so I daren’t commit to a publication date at the moment.)
Right at the bottom of the list is the mystery book. Pity this book. The poor thing has been sitting in first draft since I first wrote it eight years ago. It’s set in yet another different future, and needs some revisions, but I may eventually sort it out and publish it as a standalone just to stop it whining at me.
Please feel free to comment with your own wish list. The creative side of my brain seems to pay more attention to comments from my readers than it does to anything I tell it myself!
