I feel like Douglas Adams there…. Anyway, without too much ceremony, I feel like I owe some people an update, just in case anyone stops by.
The first WARS novella, Healers and Hunters by Nathan Butler, has received final approval from Decipher and is on its way to publication. Healers is the first novella from the standpoint of the Earthers, one of the main factions in the WARS universe. Meanwhile, the Gongen novella written by Sean E. Williams is nearly set to go to Decipher for approvals, while mine is still awaiting the preliminary editing process. This means there will be a delay from the original November target date for my WARS debut. The hope is that this delay is only for a couple of months, as we’d like to get it out at least in the beginning of 2011.
The Last Guardians
Occasionally I manage to find time to work on the scenes from Awakening, the first book in this series. I think I’ve gotten into Chapter Six, which is okay, but I’ve only recorded narration through Chapter Seven, which is not so good. I think I might get some done this weekend, but I don’t know for sure.
I know a lot of people are wondering just when this thing is going to come out, but I’m sticking hard and fast to my “when it’s done” timeline. I know it’s been going so long that voice actors are starting to forget they’re even in it. I think I may have to solicit someone’s help putting the spoken parts together, because I just don’t have the time to do it. If you’d like to help, please let me know.
The Sword of Calagrim
It’s the one writing project I’m most into at the moment. I have a pretty solid outline for it, that’s why I’m plugging away at it, at least a few days a week. It keeps looking like it’s going to be a short novel, somewhere in the 80,000 words range. A good length for a published debut novel, if I decide to go ahead and start sending it out.
The Adventures of Indiana Jim
I am soon to begin the great cohost experiment, beginning with my strongest candidate. It shall remain secret, but suffice to say the next episode will feature twice as much Jim with none of the bad aftertaste.
