Well, it seems like “at long last” to me, but I suppose I’ve made pretty good progress getting the fifth installment of the Galactic Mage Series out. There are a lot of plot elements coming together in this book, and I really feel like I’m getting almost halfway decent at telling stories in novel form now, after six books.
If past experience is any indication, I’ll probably look back on the fact I said that right now and, in, say, ten years, I’ll think, “No, dude, you sucked back then, but I hear what you are saying.” I’m never good enough.

Well, after a whole year of working on this story, it’s finally ready. 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
