I’ve been a bit quiet lately, I know.  That’s because I’ve been a little busy.  The business side of this author thing is getting a bit of a shakeup.

I’ve recently been picking James Rosone’s brain on marketing.  He’s been doing rather better at this than I have, and he’s had some wisdom to impart.  So, I’ve been trying to put it into practice.

The Maelstrom Rising series is now something of my flagship series, and James has strongly suggested that I concentrate on it for the time being.  You might have noticed new covers in the sidebar.  That’s part of the shakeup.

It’s also why Strategic Assets has been moved to the front of the queue.  (And yes, if you click on the image, it will take you to a preorder link.)  Enemy of My Enemy is still in the works, but the Brannigan’s Blackhearts series needs some more work.

I also got Strategic Assets outlined in two days, started the first draft on Friday, and it’s already over 13k words in.  Pulp Speed is back, folks.  Hopefully I can maintain it, because this series got big.  (As in, “probably 14 books long, not counting the anthology” big.)  Trying to give the broad strokes of a global war through small unit actions means there’s a lot of ground to cover.  (The two POVs will also help to maintain the pace without potentially burning out the characters to the point where I needed to end the American Praetorians series.)

So…

New covers.

Lots more books coming.

Still going to be working on Brannigan’s Blackhearts and The Unity Wars on the side, but new releases might be a little delayed.  Not dead.  Just pushed back a little.  Let’s get the current global war fought.

    Really enjoy all your work. I like how you can change it up from one series to the other with their own unique style. Would be pretty cool to have all the universes come together. Similar to the Stony Man books of the Mack Bolan Universe. Whatever path you take with your work I’ll be right there with you.
