Kind of a quiet week this week.
Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins: Audiobook recording in progress — and is in fact close to done! My narrator had a sudden attack of the ick just as she was getting ready to finish off her recording session and had to take some time to rest and recover her voice. After Jen is done I have to listen to her stuff, take notes on anything I’d like redone, send the notes to her, and give her time to re-record sections, so there is still a lot of process ahead, but we seem to be on-track for releasing this in time for the holidays.
Action Figures – Issue Six: Power Play: In the editing process.
Action Figures – Live Free or Die: In the editing process.
Action Figures – Issue Seven: The Black End War: Got some good work in on The Black End War over the past week. I had to put it away for a while to give myself time to lay out the second half of the story, but I have a solid game plan and I’m eager to get the ideas down on metaphorical paper.
Action Figures – Issue Eight: On the back burner for a while so I can focus on book seven. Still toying with subtitles but nothing’s jumping out at me.
Action Figures – Issue Nine: Because I’m a bit of a workaholic, I’ve been working on some rough plotting for book nine, which will feature Dr. Enigma and the return of a couple of old enemies. I’m also planning to transplant a few subplots I’d originally set up for book eight into this story. The subplots in question did not really have time to develop in book eight so I’ll be using them here.
The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – book three: Yep, I’m also doing some rough plotting on the next S&L book, which is currently going under the working title of Blades of Glory. Once I have first drafts of AF seven and eight out of the way I plan to get to work on this next.
