Weekly Update – April 27, 2021

Tomorrow is National Superhero Day 2021!, That means the Kindle edition of Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins will be free tomorrow and tomorrow only! If you found me through one of my other series or one of the anthologies I’m featured in, that would be a great time to check out my flagship YA series.

And if you’re already a fan, why not share your love of the series and gift a copy to a friend? You know, give them a head start on catching up so they’ll be ready when book ten drops (which will be soon, promise!).

In other news, my editor Julie has sent back her notes on The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Elfish Motives, so I’ll be tackling the next draft soon. I’m going to push back the release a few months to give everyone — myself included — some breathing room after Action Figures – Issue Ten: Unintended Consequences drops (which should be soon!).

What else is on tap for the year? Not much, really. I plan to finish the first draft of the sixth Strongarm & Lightfoot book, then tackle what I expect will be the final two Action Figures books. Book eleven is shaping up to tie up a lot of character storylines and clear the field for the finale in book twelve.


Action Figures – Secret Origins: Audiobook recording underway, scheduled for mid-2021 release.

Action Figures – Issue Ten: Unintended Consequences: Cover art is in progress. Set for an April/May release.

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

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Sworded Affairs: Audiobook recording is underway. Tentatively set for a spring/summer 2021 release.

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Elfish Motives: Third draft of book five is finished. Tentatively scheduled for a late summer/early fall 2021 release.

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – book six: First draft is into the third act.
