Now, I’m polishing The Key, originally published in the Writers of the Future XX anthology, for re-release as an independent story. Reviewing the text stirred up old ideas for more characters and plot set in its worlds. A stand-alone novel, The Slaughterer, has thus been added to the publication schedule. It’s far in the future because other works are already on the calendar, but can be moved up if conditions are right.
Soonly, I’ll be moving on to the final polish of Sword and Chant, the first novel in The Conquering series, for its release near the end of August. Its sequel is set for release in March 2013.
