Hi, everyone

I’ve been very busy over the last few weeks, as you can probably imagine.  I’ve completed the first draft of The Family Name, which features Akin and Isabella and wraps up a handful of plotlines before the big trilogy starts.  I’m currently unsure if the book will be third-person, with multiple points of view, or if it will remain focused on Cat (and perhaps Akin).  It really does need interludes from other characters, including both Isabella and Rebecca).  I’ve also been considering a story featuring Louise, in which she becomes the target of a very deadly plot.   Let me know if you want it.

The Family Name should be edited and up for purchase in a couple of weeks.  Wish me luck.

I’m currently tying up loose ends – and writing a couple of chapters of Stuck in Magic – before going back to Schooled in Magic.  I intend to write The Face of the Enemy in February – hopefully, The Right Side of History will be out before long.  We’re currently working on the final edit and waiting for the cover.  Keep watching this space. 

I’m also hoping to have Fantastic Schools III out before too long.  There will be a short story that will lead into the planned post-Emily trilogy within the book.

I’m still trying to decide if I want to write Drake’s Drum (Ark Royal) or The Prince’s War (The Empire’s Corps) in March.  Let me know what you want.

    Hey Chris, whatever happened to the January 19th release of the audio version of Oathkeeper?

    Please do points of view of Cat and Isabella.

    Multiple characters seems better. I would really like a story consisting of Cat, Rebecca, Isabella, and Adam.

    Multiple characters sound much more interesting. I would love to see Cat, Rebecca, Isabella and Adam. What’s the plot you have in mind?

      When writing the final novels in SIM, please consider making Emily less ideal, less perfect, and at least a little more cynical and ruthless…her recent experiences should have changed her as a character…

    That is the zero universe. I did not like the first book and have not read the rest.

    Love the Zero series! Does big trilogy mean bigger books? Can you give us a hint about what the plot is gonna be about? And please please please include as many characters as possible!!!!

    Big trilogy sounds great. Are we finally going to see more zeroes? And new technologies like portal gates and flying stuff and speed\strength potions?

    Definitely Prince’s War. I’ve been waiting 4+ years for Roland to make his reappearance.

    I would like a book with the SIM Cat. He has an open mind toward the orcs, he is trying to build a kingdom from scratch and he is both flawed, open minded, and powerful.
