Weekly Update – October 27, 2020

Starting off this week with a bit of bad news for folks who have been eagerly and patiently awaiting the audiobook versions of the Action Figures series.

I’m not going to go into the behind-the-scenes details, but the long and short of it is, the project is on hold until next year due to circumstances beyond my control. I’ll be searching for a new narrator so I can in 2021 tackle this long-delayed project in earnest and, hopefully, finally get the series out on audio. Thanks for your understanding, everyone.

Next, my weekly reminder that I am running a sale on print books purchased directly from me while supplies last. You can visit the pinned post on this website for full details, but basically, if you buy print copies of any book from me directly, you’re getting a freebie — a copy of Cheap Thrills Digest if you buy one novel, and a copy of any full-length novel of your choosing if you buy two or more. And of course, they’re all signed!

Please remember that US Postal Service is already on the slow side, and will only get slower between the upcoming election and the holiday shipping season, so if you’d like to get anything as a gift, buy now and beat the rush!


Action Figures – Secret Origins: On hold until 2021.

Action Figures – Issue Ten: Unintended Consequences: Second draft is finished. Tentatively set for a winter/spring 2021 release.

Action Figures – Issue Eleven: Draft one underway. Scheduled for a winter/spring 2022 release.

The Action Figures Omnibus – Volume One – Stepping Up: The omnibus is fully edited and formatted, and is now awaiting cover art.

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Sworded Affairs: Audiobook recording is underway. Tentatively set for a fall/winter 2020 release.

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Elfish Motives: Second draft of book five undergoing beta-reading.
