June Update

Hi Everybody,

Today is the first day of June, and it's pretty unbelievable how much stuff I've got going on the next few months! Let's take it in order!

June 12 is the day that we expect the ebook of The Furies, the fourth book of the Stargate Atlantis Legacy series! I absolutely can't wait for you guys to finally read it! I think it's my favorite so far of the Legacy books, and there are sections that I think are right up there with the best writing I've ever done. The paperback will be ready on June 28, a couple of weeks later because of the actual business of printing.

July 9 is the day that Lost Things comes out as a special Nook First book at Barnes & Noble! The first review compared it to Raiders of the Lost Ark, which makes me tremendously happy, since I loved that movie and it was definitely one of the major influences on Lost Things -- that same mix of adventure, occult, and light romance in a period setting. I think this is the book that you'll like whether you came here through Stargate or the Numinous World -- a strong team adventure in a meticulously researched historical setting with the same style of magic as I usually write -- archaeology, airships, adventure, non-traditional relationships, and old gods! The paperback will be out on August 1, and the ebook will be available at Amazon and elsewhere on August 10.

August 7 is the day that Secrets, the fifth book in the Stargate Atlantis Legacy series will be out! Secrets is Rodney's book, and it's all coming to a head with Rodney right in the middle of everything -- Queen Death's plot, the legacy of the Ancients, and all the rest. There is a section in here which I'm so proud of and can't wait for you to see!

October 23 is the day that The General's Mistress comes out. I wrote the first scenes of it in late November 1992, so almost twenty years since I began it -- this is probably the book that is closest to my heart. Gull, Charmian, Lydias -- Elza. If you put all three of them together you'd have her. The cover blurb says, "In the age of Revolution, in the era of Napoleon and Robespierre, a woman breaks all the rules." That's Elza -- oracle, soldier, courtesan, and eternal companion.

So much going on! And after this there's the last book of the Legacy series, The Inheritors, and on into next year with Moebius Squared, my SG-1 novel with Melissa Scott, and Steel Blues, the sequel to Lost Things. Right now I'm finishing Steel Blues. I'm working on my last major scene, and oh my this has been fun!

Come along with me on these journeys. I promise you'll enjoy the ride!

I hope my Hollow Earth Expeditions game group meets August 1, and that my local B&N has the paperbacks in stock that evening on my way to the game!

I hope it does! I don't know how many B&Ns are going to stock the trade paper version. They should be able to order it if they don't carry it in stock.
