Hi, everyone – just a quick post to catch up with everything.
I’ve finished the first draft of Reality Check (The Empire’s Corps VII) and it should be online by next Monday. It is a stand-alone, but ties into both When The Bough Breaks and the upcoming mainstream Retreat Hell.
I’m still outlining the next few stand-alone books for the universe. I currently have a police-themed story, an immigration-themed story and Ed Stalker’s origin story. What other themes should I explore? I also intend to do one that returns to Belinda (last seen in When The Bough Breaks), but I’m still looking for a plot. Part of the problem is that I want the stand-alones to … well, stand alone and that gets harder the more I draw the disparate elements together.
My plan is to start writing Democracy’s Might next, then a completely new story. I’m caught between several different ideas. For one, I have an interstellar carrier in a universe at war; for another, I have demonic-magic in the modern world. And then there is the Nazi Civil War idea – alternate history did astonishingly well last time, perhaps I should try it again.
After that, I intend to write the fourth book of Schooled in Magic; Work Experience.
Any suggestions and comments are, of course, welcome.
