Next up, it’s new release time! Almost!

I received my editor’s notes on The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Sworded Affairs over the weekend and I’ll be working on the final draft and formatting this week. If things go smoothly, the Kindle edition will be ready to go by this time next week, and the print edition will be out by the end of the month or early June.

WRITING PROJECTS

Action Figures – Secret Origins: Audiobook recording continues with narrator Jennifer McPherson. Tentatively set for late spring/early summer release.

Action Figures – Issue Ten: Unintended Consequences: First draft underway, 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, is set for a mid-2020 release. This is with my editor now, so this is back in the pipeline!

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Elfish Motives: Book five is in the plotting stages. Tentatively scheduled for a late 2020 release.

Weekly Update – May 12, 2020

(Professor Farnsworth voice): Good news, everyone!

The audiobook edition of The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Blades of Glory is officially in the can! ACX is running final processing, which will take several days, but the audiobook should be up on Audible by the end of the month! My narrator, Heather Auden, is already reading the current draft of the next S&L novel, Sworded Affairs, so she can hit the ground running when it comes time to record that.

Next, I am participating in an online panel next week with several fellow superhero fiction authors. That will feature one panel discussion every night at 6 PM (EST) running Monday, May 18 through Friday, May 21. Go to https://superhero-fiction.com/sfvc/ for the full schedule and details on how to watch and participate live on Facebook.

Finally, the big group promotion has begun! Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins is available for the Kindle for 99 cents, along with the other titles featured below. Go to https://superhero-fiction.com/may-sale/ to see the full catalog of titles.
