Draft one of Action Figures – Issue Ten: Unintended Consequences is done!
The first draft clocks in at 80,000+ words, making it a strong contender for the longest Action Figures novel, but I’m expecting to shave a LOT of material out in subsequent drafts. It always happens because of my tendency to greatly over-write in early drafts.
That comes later, though. I’m putting this project aside to cool off for a while and moving on to the first draft of the next Strongarm & Lightfoot book.
Action Figures – Secret Origins: Audiobook recording continues with narrator Jennifer McPherson. Tentatively set for late summer release.
Action Figures – Issue Ten: Unintended Consequences: First draft complete, tentatively set for a winter/spring 2021 release.
The Action Figures Omnibus – Volume One: This collection of books one through three — Secret Origins, Black Magic Women, and Pasts Imperfect — with new cover art by Tricia Lupien and a foreward by Patrick Hodges (the James Madison series), is set for a mid-2020 release.
The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Sworded Affairs: Audiobook in process, scheduled for summer 2020 release.
The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Elfish Motives: Book five is in the plotting stages. Tentatively scheduled for a late 2020 release.
