COMING NEXT:- EARTH PRIME
(A collection of stories set after EARTH FLIGHT)
The plan is that the serial story, The End, and the New Beginning, will be published as part of a collection of stories set after Earth Flight.
The provisional title of the collection is Earth Prime, and I even have a provisional cover, though I’m not estimating a publication date yet. The other stories still have to be written, and the time that takes depends on the number and length of them. So basically, a longer wait means there’ll be a bigger collection to read in the end.
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 I’ll give you 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 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.
An apology for paperback readers.
When I publish an ebook, the paperback usually follows about two months later. In the current world situation, I can publish ebooks relatively normally, and my existing paperbacks seem to be available to buy with longer than usual delivery times, but publishing new paperbacks is a problem. Some steps in the process are likely to take much longer than normal, while others may not be possible at all, and things can change without warning.
I apologize to paperback readers for potential delays. This situation is totally out of my control, and I will catch up with publishing any delayed paperbacks as soon as possible.
