Hello, dear readers of mine!
I have put together a calendar of when my plethora of 2016 books will each be released! With my wife’s recently diagnosed cancer and my Con schedule for the year, I had to give a little more time to myself to get each project written and edited. Patreon patrons and Kickstarter backers will get their own different messages, but I want to share my plan with all y’all.
Ghostwriting ‘Space Marines’ novel
Yes, I have another paying novel job from my awesome publisher, at 40,000 words something I’ll be able to knock out by the end of February, and then I can return to the novels with my actual name on them.
Tesla & Darwin vs. Edison’s Megalodons
This book, currently being written, is the first entry in The Tesla Trilogy which my Kickstarter backers have been most kind in supporting. All of the books on this list are going to be edited by my proofing minion, Ann, and an additional week will be devoted to making those changes once the draft and first edit are finished.
Right now it looks like this first Tesla Trilogy novel will be finished on or about April 4, 2016.Of course it will be sent out immediately to all my Patreon supporters and Kickstarter backers as soon as the books arrive, but then on sale at Cons and on Amazon!
Cthulhu Attacks! Book 2: The Faith
I shall start in after a short rest on Part 2 of my best-selling Cthulhu Attacks! trilogy in early April. I expect the book to be released right about the middle of June 2016, and it shall be glorious! I only hope that I can live up to the expectations of the first book. It will be sent out right away to my supporters and then made available to all!
Tesla & Edison vs. The Order of the Mystic Eye
Part 2 of The Tesla Trilogy will be the story of a very reluctant partnership between Tesla and his nemesis, Thomas Edison. It should be quite fun! After a short rest following the publication of the second Cthulhu Attacks! book, I place the release for this highly anticipated second entry around September 1. Once again, supporters will get the first copies, and then I plan to launch it at the Salt Lake Comic Con in September!
Cthulhu Attacks! Book 3: The Fight
Finishing up this epochal Lovecraftian book series will commence immediately after the second Tesla book is published, and it should be in stores and online by October 31.
Tesla & Nellie Bly vs. Mirror Tesla & His Arc-Light of Death
This is Book 3 of The Tesla Trilogy, and quite possibly the most exciting of the bunch. This also shall be the final novel (other than ghostwriting projects) that I will release in 2016, with the possible exception of my long-promised Silver Age SF novel, The Act (which requires only that I put in the massive edits already done). I will begin work on it right after the release of Cthulhu Attacks! Book 3 and should have it ready to launch by the Christmas shopping season.
The Tesla Trilogy BIG BOOK
This is the beautiful hardback, faux-leatherbound, gold-stamped omnibus edition that was financed by my recent Kickstarter. These won’t be for sale anywhere, going either to my Kickstarter folks or given by myself as gifts. But the way, the schedule looks now it will be coming people’s way in early 2017. I apologize for the delay, but I promise you it will be worth it!
That’s a lot of books, eh?
My plan is to have 2016 be my annus mirabilis, something comparable to Philip K. Dick’s 1964. With your wind at my back, dear friends, I do believe I can make it a Year of Miracles!
And thank you ever so much for your patience. It shall be rewarded!
