Happy New Year, all you Fistful Faithful!
Now that the glowing embers of that dumpster fire that was 2016 are behind us, we look ahead to 2017, hoping beyond hope that it has a kinder, gentler disposition.
On the Dark Choir front, we have some shake-ups on tap. First of all, you’re aware that the third book in the Dark Choir series, THE CURSE MANDATE, is available for purchase. Even better, the paperback edition is finally online at Amazon, and you can hold the real deal in your hands!
Furthermore, the publisher has decided to re-brand the cover for THE CURSE MERCHANT to align with the latest entry, effectively giving Dorian Lake a sexy makeover.
And the latest in Dark Choir news… I have officially signed the contract for Book 4, THE DARK INTEREST, which is tentatively scheduled for release January 2018.
But what about 2017, you ask? This will be the year of short fiction for me, as I have two short stories publishing this year in their respective anthologies. If you hop over to my Books page, you’ll note that the short story prequel to the Dark Choir series, “Bait & Witch”, appeared in the Curiosity Quills CHRONOLOGY anthology. Well, CQ is releasing a new anthology this year called DARKSCAPES, and I have an entry waiting for your hot little hands. It’s a short titled “Fail House”, which follows two unemployed Americans in a near-future dystopia as they attempt to survive a labor riot. DARKSCAPES releases at the end of this month… I’ll keep you posted!
And coming later this year, I joined a collaboration of authors penning short stories within Matthew Cox‘s Divergent Fates supersetting. It’s a diverse world incorporating sci-fi, cyberpunk, a gritty post-apocalyptic milieus. My contribution, “Snake Oil”, takes place within the Badlands, a setting you’ll find in one of his best-sellers, Prophet of the Badlands. Stay tuned for a release date on that one!
In the meantime, I have a huge… YUUUUGE… project I’m getting ramped up for, and I’m looking forward to seeing it take shape. I might have to keep that under wraps for a bit, so take care and keep reading!
