10 May

Well, good news first.

Cursed has a cover design, so I’m hoping that the volume will be available for sale – at least in eBook format – in a week or so. The Right of the LineArk Royal 14 – is currently going up for sale now, so hopefully you will be able to purchase it tomorrow. I’ll post here and elsewhere when done.

I’ve learnt a lesson about not posting too many future plans online <grin>. But my current project is Debt of Loyalty (Angel 6). I can’t post too much about it because Debt of Honour (aka The Embers of War) was significantly delayed and just about anything would be a spoiler. Sorry.

Future plans:

June – The Family Pride (Zero 6)

July – Mirror Image (SIM 18)

Aug – Their Last Full Measure (A Learning Experience 6, probably the conclusion)

Sept – The Artful Apprentice (SIM 19)

Obviously, I’m not sure how solid any of this actually is. I do want to write another The Empire’s Corps book, either a second story about Stalker’s past or a post-collapse storyline, and I will need to complete the final Angel book too. I intend to do that after the middle book is edited, so it may displace one of the others.

No promises <grin>.

On a different note, I finished the course of radiotherapy, despite some side effects that were more unpleasant than I’d hoped. Now, I’m just waiting to see the results. Right now, I keep having aches and pains and brief moments of headaches … sigh. (Of course, that could just be the demands of life <grin>.) I wound up spending a day in hospital after I caught something, which I could have done without. <sigh>

    Well the cover of Cursed fills me with dread. Been looking forward for these books for a long time!

    I’m glad you finished radiotherapy and hope it went well…Thank you for releasing Cursed soon and for planning Mirror Image and The Artful Apprentice! I’m really looking forward to them! In one of the new books, could you consider placing a prologue or epilogue that gives us some idea of how the great and powerful are currently viewing Emily? It could be the White Council balling out Gordian, or a Star Council meeting, but it would help us understand important context…

    Thanks for the update. Wish you continued strength and durability. Empathize with your logic, but the other side of the coin is that you created the clamor. Enjoy it, publish and feed us story sharks. Great skill creates demand, and you are great story teller. We’re hooked, reel us in.

    So who is the guy in the cloak and hood behind (what I assume is Emily), CLOAK ??!! in the library.

      What? You think Cloak wouldn’t be in a library? 😈

      Since I’ve read the book, I think he is BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Darn Snerk Collar. 😉

    Please get better. You have a long life to live with your family!!!

    Hey Drak, put me on the proofreader list. Hmm, is proofreader one word or two?

  9. Anarchymedes May 11, 2019 at 6:18 am #

    So, the Angel (Kat Falcone series, the one I liked) are about to end, but the Ark Royal (the one I feel about as I do about all pop-psychology, propaganda, and preaching) shows no sign to… It’s tempting to take this personally, but I know better than that: the fans’ will be done. 😉

    • chrishanger June 10, 2019 at 10:03 am #

      I may do a third Angel series. It depends on sales.

    One thing I always wanted to see was how Emily would handle being back in her old world – would she be once again without her powers? How would earth react to her? What would her mother think? What happened to her stepfather? Et cetera, so on, things like that.

    Maybe one day. 😛

    Anyway! Glad to see you’re feeling well! Don’t push yourself too hard.

      Not well perhaps, but functional*

  11. MarieB May 11, 2019 at 11:31 am #

    Just finished Cursed. Can’t wait for July and Mirror Image.

    Thanks for the great read Chris!

    Have you ever considered a story about Emily going back to her old world for a visit? Now, I know that does not go with THE story, but it could be a mental exercise short story non canon, so to say. I just wonder how you would portrait her disfunctional family.

    • chrishanger June 10, 2019 at 10:04 am #

      Perhaps. But not for a long time.

    Just got Cursed, Right of Line maybe today. I like the list of upcoming though I would prefer SIM, SIM, Sim. Zero is OK, space battles are getting tiring but uniqueness of foes keep me interested.

    Thank you for two two SIM’s . Hope your health is better. Please take care of your health first and of writing second.

    What I really like about “Schooled in Magic” series is the magical industrialization worldbuilding (besides the stories as well). Keep it up and good health to you!
