May Update

Hello everyone! May has dawned beautiful and warm here, my tomatoes beginning to set fruit and my peas nearly ready to eat. A number of writing projects are also ready to bear fruit this summer and fall -- so here's what's going on. I will have four books out between now and the end of the year, which is pretty incredible!

The Avengers, the fourth book of the Legacy series, is nearly through the review at MGM and is expected back in the next week or so! Given production time, it should be out in late June. I'm so excited about it finally coming out! I've been sitting on spoilers for ages and I can't wait to hear what you guys think!

Lost Things, my adventure novel with Melissa Scott set in the 1920s, will be out in July. Lost Things is tremendous fun, an Indiana Jones style adventure about a band of aviators, archaeologists and occultists in a chase from Hollywood to the Groves of Diana at Aricia, racing against time to stop a spirit of the underworld that should never have been released from its bindings.

The General's Mistress will be out in October. I can't even express how thrilled I am -- I've been working on this book since 1992, and it's the nearest and dearest to my heart. Based on the memoirs of Ida St. Elme, it's the story of the Napoleonic Wars as you've never heard them, the incredible life of a courtesan, soldier, spy, oracle, and eventually bestselling author. There is no one like Elza, and I hope you'll join me in her adventures!

Secrets, the fifth book of the Legacy series should be out in November, and again I'm sitting on spoilers and ready to pop! I can't wait to talk about it and I hope you enjoy Secrets as much as we did.

Further down the pipe into next year, there will be Moebius Squared, my SG-1 novel with Melissa Scott, reuniting the Moebius team left in the past with the post-Continuum team in a twisted plot to prevent Ra from reconquering Earth in the past! Also sometime in the first half of next year will be Steel Blues, the sequel to Lost Things, which is what I'm working on right now. I'm hoping that the second Elza book, The Emperor's Companion, will be along sometime toward the end of the year, but that's all still up in the air.

So lots of fruit on the vine! Here's to a wonderful harvest to come!
