Book News: A Slew of Books Ahead! a.k.a. Books Coming Down the Line!

As promised, if late in the day, let’s take a moment to look at what’s coming in the next couple of months. Today, we’ll specifically highlight books that I am in writing that should start cropping up over the rest of Summer 2017!

  • First up, I am elbow-deep in the second Elements of Wrath Online litRPG book with J. A. Cipriano. This next one is titled The Vale of the Three Wolves and will focus on Shale and Kayla’s mutual quest to find the Ring of Promise and all the soul-searching, questing, and learning about each other that journey will entail. We’re aiming to be done by the end of June, so keep alert for updates as they come along!
  • After that, it’s time to start on the next Dwarf for Hire book! Rune Service has been doing fantastic and it was probably the most fun book for me to write so far. All that means that I am eager to go back to Mary Stone’s misadventures. The next book is tentatively titled Once in a Blue Rune and hopefully will be written by the end of July, then released in August after editing and all that good grid.
  • During that entire two-month spread, I’ll also be working in the off hours on a special collaboration with Suppapong Studios, the source of the great cover art for the print edition of Rune Service. We’re delving into the world of Japanese-style light novels and so far it’s been an amazing experience working on a project that is more of a collaboration with an artist and designer beyond the cover work. As we’re working on this project in between our other contracts and projects, this one may take a little more time to get out but it will definitely be released before year’s end.

From there the magic eight-ball starts to look hazy. Obviously, expect the last Elements of Wrath Online book to be finished by year’s end as well. Whether a third Dwarf for Hire book will hit depends entirely on how things go convention and travel wise by year’s end but we can certainly hope!

Speaking of conventions, expect an update specifically regarding those sometime next week, as well as a return to our Starving Review schedule! Until next time, good reading, good writing, and good luck!

Procythian Reign (Proceena Trilogy Book 1) by T. Allen Diaz (Amazon, Goodreads)

Good morning, literary foodies! It’s time to open up the pantry and pull out a new recipe to sample. Today’s narrative treat is a military space opera from local Florida chef, T. Allen Diaz. Promising thrills, action, intrigue, and sci fi drama, Procythian Reign sounds like the perfect treat for a connoisseur of science fiction and fantasy as yours truly is … but will it fill me up or leave me wanting?

Starving Review: Scion of Conquered Earth (SCION Book 1) by Michael J. Allen

Scion of Conquered Earth (SCION Book 1) by Michael J. Allen (Amazon, Goodreads)

Good morning, my literary foodies! Today, I have another fresh review served up piping hot from the pantry, this time a dystopian YA space opera, Scion of Conquered Earth by Michael J. Allen. Such a mix of ingredients should lead to a tasty genre fusions as long as everything is baked properly, but it could just as easily turn sour. Does Mr. Allen succeed in the kitchen?

Starving Review: Out of Ordure (The Fairies Book 1) by Ramon Terrell

Out of Ordure (The Fairies Book 1) by Ramon Terrell (Amazon, Goodreads)

Today’s selection from the literary pantry is a light, fluffy pastry of a novella, but the size of the meal is never a measure of culinary quality. To be more specific, Out of Ordure promises a mix of humor and fantasy with a tale of a most unusual fairy. Will Mr. Terrell dish out the perfect mix to fill that pastry or will it just be too little to be filling?

The Thieves of Nottica by Ash Gray (Amazon)

Good Friday, my literary foodies, it is time once again to throw open the pantries and pick up a (hopefully) delightful meal to read through! This week, I have an intriguing steampunk fantasy meal on my plate, distinctive at the very least for the unique cover. The Thieves of Nottica has a notable subtitle as ‘A Humorous Steampunk Adventure’, so without further ado, let’s grab our forks and knives to get started carving down to the truth!
