Updates–The Family Shame and More

25 Apr

Hi, everyone

This is, I’m afraid, a very short update. But at least there’s some good news <grin>.

I’ve finished the first draft of The Family Shame, which is technically The Zero Enigma VI. I hope to get it out to the editor in a few days, with a planned publication date of three or so weeks from this date. The paperback will take a little longer, as it will need to be formatted and the audio will take longer still, but it is on the way.

The Family Shame Cover Revised

My current plan is to start writing The Embers of War (Kat Falcone 6) sometime next week.

On other news, I’ve been sketching out ideas for The Pen and the Sword, which is currently pencilled in as The Empire’s Corps 15 and Knife Fights, which is the provisional title for The Empire’s Corps 16. This series will take us back to the Core Worlds, where the empire has vanished and multiple warlords are bidding for power. As before, I’ll move between mainstream books and side-stories, although I’m not sure how well it’s going to work out here. We shall see.

And yes, I’ll be continuing with the Heinlein reviews. I hope you’re enjoying them.

    Do you have a release date for the Princes in the tower?

      It’s currently having the second edit. I’m hoping to get it out in a couple of weeks or so.

    Excellent. I really enjoy the Kat Falcone books. Seeing the core worlds and leaving Avalon alone for a while is a great idea.

    Any word on the audiobook release for Graduation Day?
    And then the next Learning Experience book(s)?

      Graduation Day should be out soon, in Audio.

    Did I lose track of Kat Falcone 5? Amazon is showing it as a 4 book series currently.

      Chris has been calling “The Hyperspace Trap” Kat Falcone 5.

    So then the release date for the Broken Kingdom should be out in July or August?

    I’m excited for the new Zero Enigma book, though I had been under the impression that it was a side-story or tangential spinoff and not part of the main series of trilogies. Either way, I’m really looking forward to it.

      It is a side story. Isabella’s partial redemption.
      The next mainline story will be years in the future 9Cat as an adult).

      It’s a spin-off, but it will lead back to the main plot at some point.
