It’s been real quiet here for the past few months, so I should begin with an apology for anyone waiting on news re: Rust Season 2, Century of Sand 2, or Olesia Anderson #6. I moved house, and things got hectic fast. But we’ve settled in, mowed the lawn, repaired the roof, and I’m now back at the writing desk.
So! First, the good news. Olesia Anderson #6: Snowblind launches on Christmas Eve! Snowblind will be available through the Kindle store for a limited exclusive period, and then appear on iBooks, Kobo and Nook. It’s an awesome story that puts a boot up the butt of the larger Olesia Anderson story arc, and I really think you’ll love where it takes the series as a whole.
Now, the bad news. Century of Sand 2: The Ragged Lord is still being edited. The second draft has come back from test readers, and reactions have been positive, but that doesn’t mean it’s ready to launch. CoS1 went through five complete rewrites before I was happy with it, and if I want to hold CoS2 to the same level of quality, it’s going to take just as long.
I really wanted to have Rust: Season 2 ready by Christmas, but it just isn’t to be. Season 2 is ticking along quite nicely, but it’s still going to be a few months before this baby is ready to leave the nest. I can promise one thing, though: things are getting dark. If you thought Season 1 was a bit gritty, then you’re going to lose your shit in Season 2.
Besides that, I have a short story currently in the ASIM slush pile that I feel really good about, a heist caper story that’s slowly developing (along with the four other novels I never seem able to commit to), a short ghost story I’m quiet enjoying fleshing out… I’m keeping busy, that’s for sure.
So, in summary: OLESIA ANDERSON SIX RELEASES DECEMBER 24TH. Everything else… releases when it’s done!
Take care, and have a great Christmas!
