As promised, I’m back with a couple of announcements and other news.
I want to start by assuring those of you who have been waiting impatiently for Impaler to come out in print, that your wait will soon be over. Barring unforeseen problems, it will be available for purchase the beginning of next month. We’ll post updates as the time gets closer.
This next bit of news is more personal to me. I found out the end of last week that the bosses have given the green light, provisionally, for the sequel to Nocturnal Origins. What that means is they want to bring it out and the numbers are looking good. However, for me to write the book and have it done in time for it to come out when they want, I’m going to have to take time off from NRP. So, it would really be nice for my numbers to increase — while the image of the starving artist or writer is one we’re all familiar with, I like my Blue Bell ice cream and starving really isn’t something I want to do ;-) That means, I need your help. Tell your family and friends about Origins, if you liked it. As I’ve said before, you guys are our greatest promotional tool and we do appreciate all you do to spread the word.
