For starters, Hostiles out, and it’s doing great right now. So a great big THANK YOU to everyone who has picked a copy up! You’re helping it climb the Amazon Hot New Releases chart (this morning it was at number 13), and it’s just awesome to have such great support from the people sharing this story with me.
The release of Hostiles marks the completion of the opening trilogy of The Galactic Mage series. The second trilogy is underway. Continue reading Hostiles Is Out – Book 4 of The Galactic Mage Series Underway
Well, Hostiles is reeeeally close to being done. I have gotten my galley copies from the printer and delivered them to my proofreaders. I’m reading through my copy, and hopefully everyone else has dropped everything in their lives as well to do this singular task. Barring any unforeseen delays (and incorporating some degree of realism into the plan), I would guess everyone could be done proofreading by around the 12th.
Once I have all the notes back with any typos or whatever, I will go in and double check all the comments. I will then add the fixes to a master proof, which I will send back to Fernando to fix in the print file. Hopefully he can get that done in a day or two, but I never know how that’s going to go. He went and had kids and stuff without my permission, so now he tries to tell me he has family priorities getting in the way sometimes, which is just crazy talk. Continue reading Hostiles Update – The Galactic Mage Series Progress
Well, here it is. An early look at the cover of Hostiles. I’m stoked!
I got the final cover files from Cris Ortega last night, and I am so excited and so pleased with the cover for Hostiles that I can hardly breathe! And while book three of The Galactic Mage series is still somewhere around five weeks away, I decided Continue reading Hostiles Cover Revealed – Book 3 of The Galactic Mage Series
Hostiles, book 3 of The Galactic Mage series, began its Version 3.0 phase on Monday. My last Beta reader has been in one of those hectic life places lately, so I’ve decided not to wait given that everyone else finished up nearly two weeks ago. I think I have everything I need now, plus I’ve had almost a month away from the project to think about it, thinking ahead to the next part of the series, which I’ve given the working title of the Tidalwrath Trilogy. Continue reading Hostiles Update for February 27 and a Few Other Tidbits
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?
Yes, I know, I suck at updating my blog lately. I do. I’ve been a shameful sort of blogger the last month and a half, but I defend myself by pointing out that the only reason anyone ever strolls by my blog is to find out about my books or to be amused by some very low-quality drawings of myself doing something absurd or embarrassing. The latter is down a few paragraphs, and for the former, I can say that the dip in blog production (and book review production) has come upon the rise of book production instead. As evidence, I present the fact that, while my editor, Joyce, has been scouring the pages of Rift in the Races, freeing it from as many typos and grammatical ineptitudes as possible, I have been furiously working on the third book of the series, which will be titled Hostiles. And guess what… it’s almost done, at least the first draft is. Continue reading Dude You Suck at Updating Your Blog
