Good news – The Oncoming Storm is about to reach its thrilling conclusion, which should hopefully wrap up the first part of the story and set the stage for Book II. I don’t have any strict plan for it yet, apart from a general idea. But we will see.
What I’ve more or less decided to do is alternate between kindle and published books for the next few projects. I have several commitments to meet. This isn’t going to be easy as we’re going to be moving at the end of May. But we will see about that too.
I’m still mulling over thoughts for Bookworm III. I have several ideas that may not be suitable – right now, I think I’m looking at a series total of 4 books.
Next up, probably in this order:
The Trafalgar Gambit (Ark III) – As humanity reels under the impact of the Battle of Earth, Ark Royal and her crew set off on what could be a diplomatic mission – or the last flight of the ancient carrier before humanity’s final days come to pass …
The School of Hard Knocks (Schooled In Magic V) – Emily undertakes a daring mission to Mountaintop Academy, intending to recover information and ideas that were stolen from her the previous year. But as she is drawn into a deadly struggle for power, she rapidly comes to realise that far more is at stake than just her life. The outcome of the struggle may determine the future of the Allied Lands themselves.
The Thin Blue Line (TEC 9) – Earth has fallen. Chaos is gripping the core worlds of the once-proud Empire. And as the remaining guardians of order struggle to weld together an agreement that might save humanity from disaster, shadowy forces are working in the background to ensure the Fall of Earth is only the start of a catastrophe that will shatter human society beyond repair.
Hard Lessons (ALE II) – Fifty years after the capture of the Horde Starship and the birth of the Solar Union, the most powerful Galactics have finally noticed the human race. But, as they take steps to bring the imprudent humans and their allies to heel, they discover that humanity has surprises of its own …
But with Earth on the verge of social collapse, the Solar Union might well be fighting on two fronts.
