June Update

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted! Things got busy. So here's what's up!

Unascended, the seventh book in the Stargate Atlantis Legacy series, has just gotten back from edits at MGM. We'll turn those edits around quickly, and the book will be out in August. Fingers crossed, it will be ready to launch at Shore Leave 36 on August 1, where Amy and I are both guests! Speaking of Shore Leave, Melissa Scott will also be a guest, and our publisher, Fandemonium Books, will be present with new Stargate titles. There's also a great guest list including amazing authors like Keith R. A. DeCandido, Peter J. Evans, Diana Dru Botsford and headlining media guest Richard Dean Anderson! So if you're anywhere in the Baltimore/DC/Philadelphia area, come on out.

Meanwhile, the fourth Order of the Air book, Wind Raker, is through final edits and is awaiting cover and layout. I hope very soon to be able to share with you beautiful new Bob Eggleton artwork for the cover. Wind Raker takes place a little more than two years after Silver Bullet, and the team is going to Hawaii! An old enemy is back, and so are some friends who will be important on an ongoing basis.

Melissa and I are hard at work on the fifth book, Oath Bound, which will be out next year, and we've blocked out the sixth book, Fire Season, which brings us all the way to September 1, 1939.

Anybody got questions? I'm happy to field them.

On May 25th, the Fandy Facebook page also mentioned your A Blade of Atlantis story will be in the Far Horizons anthology this fall. Congrats! :)

It will be indeed!

Also, I have to say that I ADORE Amy's story for the anthology, Consort. It's pure Todd backstory.

I'm so glad! What do you hope happens in Wind Raker?

You know, I really don't have any expectations. I've enjoyed the entire series so much, and I will pretty much read anything you all write in this 'verse.

I am always happy for more flashbacks about Gil, but everything you've done with the characters is just wonderful and I am totally on board for more.

I'm the, I suppose, rare reader who really likes going into books unspoiled, so I avoid reading the various previews. But I totally will be buying anything you write in the series, and so far I am buying the paperbacks.

Thank you so much for this series. It's wonderful.

There is definitely a Gil flashback in Wind Raker, and it's one of my favorites! I hope you enjoy it!

Any word on the next Numinous World book? I am missing Elza!

Not yet. I'm the one holding The Marshal's Lover. I'm not completely satisfied with a few things, and I want to tweak it a little bit more.

I shall be there! Shore Leave, that is. :) Most every year I end up heading down to visit my friend Misty and attend the con; we met you last year and it was much fun!

Yay! It was so nice to meet you guys last year. It sounds like it's going to be a great con.

As padawan_aneiki just mentioned, I'll be there too, and picking up any new Stargate books I can. :) I think I have every one published from Fandemonium, in either paperback or e-book form. Greatly looking forward to being able to get the latest book. I can't wait to see where the series is going! See you there. :)

Yay! It seems like it's going to be a great con.

Unascended should be out by then, so a new book for you!
