The Galactic Mage Series: What’s Next and When?

Me with my nose to grindstone on Hostiles, book 3 of The Galactic Mage Series.

With the successful launch of the second book in the series, Rift in the Races, and book three, Hostiles, coming out later this year, I thought I’d take a moment to share what I envision for the series as it moves forward, and what my plans are around and beyond it. Rest assured, I won’t be sitting around idly in 2013, and I will have my nose firmly to the grindstone of productivity. Continue reading The Galactic Mage Series: What’s Next and When?

Rift in the Races Now Available

cover_only_web_SmallWell, all the parts are in place and its finally ready to go. The book is available for Kindle now (here’s the link right to it) and Nook (link here), and will be shortly for paperback on Amazon.

The final print files are in and approved, and Fernando is formatting them for Nook and Kindle as I type this. He says he should be done on Saturday, but who knows, maybe we’ll get lucky and it will be sooner. From there, I will upload them to Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and check to make sure they work. If they do, then I’ll throw the switch and it becomes a matter of hours. They say approval can take up to 72 hours, and with the glut of new stuff coming out these days, that might be the case, where book one only took about six hours as I recall. But, that’s what we’re looking at. Continue reading Rift in the Races Update and Video Book Trailer Revealed
