I know some don't use Facebook, so this page is meant to keep everyone in the loop regardless if they use Facebook or not. I'm active there and post every couple of days, or try to! You can click on the "Posted On" next to the avatar in any post to go to the link on Facebook.


Two quick updates:

- The first 15 minutes of the audiobook for the Evaran Chronicles is in and I've approved it on ACX. I'm always excited to hear a story read aloud, and looking forward to listening to the rest of it!

- I'm on the last scene for the Cosmic Parallel, book 8 of the Evaran Chronicles. It's at 96.5 k atm, so with revisions, it will probably be 100k. I begin the second pass starting Friday.


I'm in another Instafreebie promotion! I have Freelancing, the Earthborn prequel, in this one. The focus of this one is short fiction. It runs from May 23 - June 14. If you're interested, check it out!

Time for another round of updates!

- The Cosmic Parallel, book 8 of the Evaran Chronicles, is now at 92k. I have about two chapters left, and wrote probably one of the more gut-wrenching scenes (for me) in the series to date yesterday. This book will be a good refresher on Evaran's Origins, and the series cosmology. I'm on track to have the first rough draft done this week, and then it's hustle time for the June 25 first edit due date.

- Biogenesis, book 2 of the Earthborn, officially started the proofread process on the 21st, so I should have it back this week. I believe I'm still on track for a May 28 launch!

- The second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, took the August 20 edit slot from Rimworlds, book 3 of the Earthborn. My editor has been busy so I had to choose the remaining two books to edit for this year, and chose The Cosmic Parallel, book 8 of the Evaran Chronicles, and the second edition of the Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. I've also begun assembling the cover brief mockup in photoshop since it's due in about a month.

- Rimworlds, book 3 of the Earthborn, will be getting a new editor that will be with me for the rest of the Earthborn series. With two editors, I'll be able to publish a bit quicker. The idea is to have one editor for the Evaran Chronicles, and one for my spinoff series.

As much as I wish I could just keep it to one editor, having a backup and one I can have help me with scheduling will become much easier. It's sitting at 12k still since my focus has been on getting the Cosmic Parallel going, but I will be back on it by this weekend and it is still on track for a fall launch!

- As seen in an earlier post this week, the audiobook for the Shadow Connection, book 6 of the Evaran Chronicles, is underway. The pronunciation guide is done, and Michael is now doing the first fifteen minutes. I'm looking forward to audio proofing!

I'm hoping to also have three more audiobooks besides this one out this year: The Human Factor, book 7 of the Evaran Chronicles, The Cosmic Parallel, book 8 of the Evaran Chronicles, and the second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles. This means I will be updating the box set audiobook as well.

- Book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles and book 4 of the Earthborn are in the plotting phase, and I hope to have the plotting for both done by end of summer so I can begin writing on them. They'll be the first books in 2019 to be published.

A busy time, but it marches onward. I hope everyone is having a great week so far!


The audiobook recording for The Shadow Connection, book 6 of the Evaran Chronicles, is now underway! The pronunciation guide was good. I'm always amazed at Michael's ability to do a variety of voices. From master Raskarian vampires, to V, to Odin. I think this book has the most voices yet, so it will be a workout!


Look who I found in this image below, on the far right! It's my narrator, Michael Pauley, in the Blacklist TV episode "Nicholas T. Moore (No. 110) ".


Time for an update!

- Biogenesis, book 2 of the Earthborn, is back from second edit. I'll do my second revision, and then it goes to my proofreader on the 21st. I should get it back around the 25th, and then my interior formatter gets her hands on it around the 27th. I'm looking at a launch around May 28.

- The Cosmic Parallel, book 8 of the Evaran Chronicles, is now at 77k, and into the third act. It now has an official edit start date of June 25. Launch will be late August. Evaran has fully realized what's going on, and it isn't pleasant! Emily and Dr. Snowden reach a high ceiling, but the cost isn't cheap.

- Rimworlds, book 3 of the Earthborn, is at 12k now, and has an official edit start date of August 20. Launch will be Early October. For those who know of Sandas, the information broker, from The Fredorian Destiny, book 2 of the Evaran Chronicles, and The Human Factor, book 7 of the Evaran Chronicles, he makes an appearance here. Their mission has started, and so far there are more questions than answers!

- The second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, is still being done as well. I'm about 40% through it, with new scenes, refactored ones, and new perspectives. I can't wait for the Tom Edwards mid-July cover! I'm hoping for a late July/early August launch.

- My narrator, Michael Pauley, reached out to me a few days ago to let me know that the pronunciation guide for for The Shadow Connection, book 6 of the Evaran Chronicles, will be coming shortly. I'm looking forward to that starting up now!

- With three remaining books for the year to go out still, I'd like to list out what's coming in 2019:

Book 9 of the Evaran Chronicles
Book 10 of the Evaran Chronicles
Book 4 of the Earthborn
Book 5 of the Earthborn
Book 6 of the Earthborn (Series final)

I'll also begin work on my third series (standalone spin off of the Evaran Chronicles) at that point. A lot to come still. I hope everyone is having a great week!


Pretty cool video on Boston Dynamic's Atlas robot. They have it jogging, jumping, and back flipping!

Happy Mother's day, and I present to you the cover for The Cosmic Parallel, book 8 of the Evaran Chronicles!


Just a few quick updates!

- Biogenesis, book 2 of the Earthborn. I'm close to finalizing the first revision, and will have it done today. It goes to my editor tomorrow for second edit, which usually doesn't take too long.

- The Cosmic Parallel, book 8 of the Evaran Chronicles, is now at 72k. I'm one chapter away from the third act. Tomorrow, I will do a post on the new cover.

- Rimworlds, book 3 of the Earthborn, is 9k now.

- The second edition of The Awakening, book 1 of the Evaran Chronicles, is chugging along. I've done about a third of it now.

There is a lot more going on, but I wanted to get out an update on the current projects!


Saw this recently on Google's AI. Pretty interesting developments!
