Yeah, so this weekend my next book, Ugly, is coming out. It’s a superhero novel, which is an odd topic for a fantasy blog, but then I guess superheroes are as much fantasy and sci-fi. Anyway, more details coming soon.
In other news, I wrapped the main text on Vengeance and set it aside for a bit to breathe. Last night I started my first read-through; in this case because I new there were tweaks I wanted to make before giving it a proper break prior to the first main edit. It’s still on track for August, I’ve even got a slot booked with Kate for proofreading.
Meanwhile I needed a little break so I put down a marker for the next Thaumatology book (yes, the next one’s in the works already, though it’ll be several months before it sees print), and then I had an idea smack me between the eyes… and Reality Hack was born. I’m going to have some trouble classifying this one: it’s urban fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and the erotic element is a bit more explicit. I think it might make it out into the light of day though. So far the characters are working for me and that’s always a good sign.
As you know I’m writing the twelfth book in the Thaumatology series. It now has a name, at least a working one, and I suspect it’ll stay. Book 12 will be called Vengeance. Make of that what you will.
I’ve also been doing some remodelling on my two favorite fantasy characters. I’m not entirely sure I’ve got Lily down right yet. May need a little more work. Ceri, however, looks awesome. She’s come out looking a little like Lena Headey, which is just a perfect look for her. (No, I’m not a Game of Thrones fan; it didn’t occur to me that she was in it until I checked the spelling of her name.)
Since this is a somewhat risque render, I’ll reveal their new look after the break. And please let me know if you think Lily looks great and I’m just being paranoid.
I don’t even have a working title, but I’m working on the next Thaumatology novel, and I’ve got a (very preliminary) target date for release.
Expect to see Ceri and Lily strutting through your e-reader sometime around August 16th.
It’s been a while since I wrote them and I’m currently reading through some of the previous books to get my brain back in the zone. That’s never good; far too much “oh I wouldn’t have written that like that now.” Still, it’ll be fun getting back in touch with the girls.
I just got this through from Smashwords. I don’t have a lot of customers who read on a Sony reader, but if you’re one and you haven’t heard, Smashwords have provided some useful information in the article below.
This is a very, very, vague release schedule for the next few books I have planned. Take a lot of this with a pinch of salt, dates are subject to variation. If you’re wondering why I’m posting this here as well as over in the Steel blog, keep reading.
No, not Lily, or even Tera, but Bo. Available for iOS and Android is a mobile Lost Girl game allowing you to create your own, customised fae character and go on adventures in the world of Lost Girl.
I’ve got it on download from the Play store (it’s free) so I’ll let you know what I think.
I’ve finally kicked off the blog for my other little project. Coming to an on-line store when I get the first one finished, the story of Aneka Jansen, 21st Century girl who wakes up in the future.
For Whom the Wedding Bells Toll, the eleventh Thaumatology novel, is now available on Smashwords and Amazon. As usual, there’s a coupon for 50% off for the first week at Smashwords; the code is TY72J to be used at checkout.
I hope you enjoy it; this will be the last story about Ceri and Lily for a while. There’s still plenty of things to write about them and their world, however, so there may well be more in the future.
Okay, barring unforeseen circumstances For Whom the Wedding Bells Toll, the last Thaumatology novel for a while anyway, will be coming out this weekend, March 2nd.
