It’s been a long time coming, but I also got back to writing the final parts of Thrown Away!
Part 6 is available now –
GRAB IT FROM AMAZON!
Part 7 will be coming very soon! It was going to be 8 parts, but I decided to wrap it all in to one final part rather than two more.  The last one will just be longer.

Thrown Away 6 (What Lies Ahead)

The Thrown Away post-apocalyptic saga continues…

After Jack helped the Junkers find the ancient tech they needed so urgently, he thought that he was done with them.
But the tech was only the beginning.
Now they’re asking for his help again.
Except this task is far more dangerous than just searching ruins.
This time, he is asked to go back to the very place he had only just escaped, and deep into the heart of The Facility, on a mission that could mean death for him if it doesn’t go well, but freedom for thousands – including Ryan – if it succeeds.

The state of things

By | Blog Posts | No Comments

I’ve had a lot of folks ask if I’ve abandoned some stories that are currently unfinished, such as Diary of the Displaced, Thrown Away, Last to Fall, etc.

For the record. Arisen is the only series I no longer write – Michael Stephen Fuchs is finishing that.

I’ve been busy with Dustfall 3, and because it’s co-written I have an obligation to keep up with J.Thorn on that. So it’s taken priority and other projects are delayed (some of them by quite a bit of time! Sorry!).

NONE of the other series are abandoned. They will all be finished.
I also have ideas for a new projects – far too many ideas – but will hold off on starting them until I finish some of the current ones.

That’s my problem, see. Too many ideas demanding to be written.

Thrown Away episodes 6-8 are finished in draft but need editing – then it’s done. It’s possible I may write other tales in that setting, but I’m not going to promise on that.

Last To Fall 2 is half-written in draft. There will be 4 novellas in that series, so 3 more to come.

Diary of the Displaced 5 is partly written, in draft. Each book in that series comes as it does, when it chooses to, and I have a feeling the story is not even close to being finished. You’ll get a new one soon, but there’s no point asking when that tale will come to an end because I’ve no clue! It could be book 6, or it could be book 25. Who knows? I won’t until the end presents itself.

Diary of the Displaced book 4

By | Blog Posts | No Comments

I’m into my last editing/rewriting of the fourth book of the Displaced. After nearly three years away from this series I’ve managed to get back on it and write the next book.  That’s so much longer than I intended, and far too long for me to be happy about it, but it will be finished and off to my editor soon and then out into the world it will go.

And then I’ll get onto book 5…

Of course I’m nervous about it. I think expectations are far higher than I can achieve, but I do like where I’ve taken it – finally. I’ve actually written the book three times, now, and not liked where it started. The other versions seemed to pick the story up much too soon, but oddly, with how it’s turning out, I’d written half of books 5 and 6.

I’m also preparing up for Nanowrimo, so something cool is going to happen there. I hope!

I’m not sure why I bother saying I’m doing Nanowrimo, though. Every month is a Nanowrimo month for me! I guess it’s because I’ve done it so many years in a row.
