Reaction to the return of the New Pulp Bestsellers List has been very gratifying. I’m glad people enjoy seeing this little peek into the New Pulp world — I do wish there was some way of creating an even more accurate list but I’ll be damned if I can think of one. On a personal note, I was very pleased to see Liberty Girl debut at # 3 on said list. It was a fun project and I wouldn’t mind having the chance to adapt works into other mediums in the future.
Anyway, I’m working away on the third Lazarus Gray story that will run in The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Five. So far, it’s been a lot of fun — just wrote a great action scene that was (if I do say so myself) really exciting! This fifth volume will consist of five short stories with subplots that run throughout… so this one tips us towards the second half of the overall story that makes up this book.
Books 2-4 were really one huge story so I wanted to break it down and do something that would hopefully be just exciting but smaller in scope. After all the globetrotting we saw in the three previous volumes, most of this action will be set in Sovereign, though there will be short jaunts to other locales.
Once I’m finished with the latest Lazarus story, I need to start work on my Sherlock Holmes novella for Pro Se. Before I begin writing, I’ll re-read some of the Arthur Conan Doyle originals. I know — it’s a rough gig, right? “I have to do some research, honey!”
Uploaded episode 54 of The Shadow Fan’s Podcast yesterday so be sure to check that out if you’re a fan of pulp’s greatest crimefighter.
Our artwork today is a production sketch of the cover that will run on Lazarus Gray’s fourth volume. This is not the finished artwork but man, isn’t it gorgeous?! I really, really like it. We get to see a darker Abby Cross than we’ve ever seen before… with a greater evil looming behind her. I really dig it and can’t wait to see George Sellas’ finished version. If this doesn’t make you excited about the upcoming book, I’ll be shocked! Satan’s Circus will really knock your socks off as it reveals all kinds of things that you may have missed in the second and third books!
