It’s been one of those weeks.

16 Dec

It’s been one of those weeks.

The worst part, unfortunately, was Eric catching a minor flu (or something) a couple of weeks ago and developing a temperature. We rushed him to the doctor, who prescribed antibiotics; he got better, then threw up rather badly on the previous Thursday, which meant another trip to the hospital. He does seem to be on the mend right now, but it was terrifying to hear him cry – I can’t wait until he’s old enough to tell us what’s actually wrong.

The good news, at least, is that I have finished the first draft of The Barbarian Bride, which completes the Decline and Fall of the Galactic Empire trilogy. It’s currently due out in early March, but I’ll keep you updated. We may see it earlier.

I’ve also published Wedding Hells (Schooled In Magic 8), finally, and Storm Front. The former took far longer to edit than I expected, but … well, the final product is a great deal stronger for it. The latter is an alternate history novel, book one of a trilogy following a civil war in the Third Reich. You can read more about it in this interview.

My current plan, after running a poll on my Facebook Fan Page, is to write Vanguard next, followed by Sons of Liberty (The Royal Sorceress IV), They Shall Not Pass (The Empire’s Corps 12), Infinite Regress (Schooled In Magic 9). I hope to have a contract to write Unlucky (Angel In The Whirlwind III), but we don’t have any solid news on that at the moment.

[As of writing, my provisional titles for the series are Unlucky, The Highland Fling, The Hammer of God, The Legacy of War + 3 more yet to be determined.]

There have been some odd developments with Facebook recently – I haven’t been able to see, directly, both of my last two promotional posts. Others have seen them (I can see their replies) but the posts themselves are inaccessible. Clearly, not all of the posts are shown to the viewers. If you want updates, please join my blog or mailing list. The latter is only used for new releases.

In other news, Eric’s birthday is on the 23rd, so I’ll be taking that day off.

    As to Eric feeling bad, we sympathize, having gone through it with my now three year old. After she started speaking, we had to decide if the things she was telling us were really helpful (smile). Hang in there.

    Looking forward to the new books.

    Yes.. kids and illnesses.. at least I’m rarely home to catch whatever the germ of the month is going around, but my wife will then come down with whatever my son has and then I get home and she’s too sick to go on one of ny adventures.

    Thank you for choosing Vanguard. I’ll look forward to it.

        So “conservative” in Your wishes. Remember Eric is from generation of people who are expected to live to 150 and more 😉

    Thanks for WH – this is really great book. And Big thanks for almost epic showdown between Emily and Radnor – it’s much better than in ARC.
    One note though, why is the end of the marked as the “End of the First Arc”

    Wedding Hells was definitely worth the wait. Well done. Best book in the series so far, and I’ve been riveted since book one. Thanks for your good work. Blessings on your family and on your future writing.
