Status of Things

I’ll be trying to keep this page up to date with the current status of my projects. Check here for updates.

As of 2019-10-07

The Search for Bender (working title)

This is books 4 and 5 of the Bobiverse. I’m currently writing madly. I originally wanted to have it done by the end of the summer (2019). But my estimating sucks as badly as ever. Book 1 is out to alpha readers (as of 8/28) but will need some more tweaking before it’s ready for the editor. Book 2 has all the essential parts in, and just needs to be filled out.

In principle, I could have it done by the end of September, but I keep running into issues (consistency, timing) and I haven’t had as much time to put into it as I’d like. However, it’s to the point where I could literally finish it any week now.

As of the 7th, I’ve gotten past a significant blocker and I’m writing like mad again.

Remember, though, that the actual writing is just my side of things. Then it has to go to beta readers, and I have to fix any issues they come up with. Then it goes to edits, then it goes to production at Audible. That’s anywhere between 3 and 6 months additional time. I’m hoping to release the books a month apart.

Earthside (working title)

This will be the next book in the Quantum Earth series. I’ll likely start on it in the fall 2019, and finish late winter/early spring 2020. Then, 3-6 months for production.

Other items

We’ll be releasing a short story soon that originally appeared in the Explorations: Colony anthology. I’ll be interested in seeing how short stories are received by the community. I have a lot of ideas that wouldn’t generate a full novel, so this might be a good outlet for those.

We’re also currently in discussions for interactive audio books. No details yet.
