First, thanks to all who have supported the Liberty Girl book. It’s been in the New Pulp Best Sellers’ Top 10 every week since its release and I’m very gratified by that. I’ve had a couple of people ask me when the next Heroic book will be out from Pro Se Productions but I’m not privy to that information. I know that Pro Se has plenty of things in the works for Liberty Girl, Flare, Eternity Smith, etc. but I’m not directly involved in any of them at the moment so I don’t know what the schedule looks like. Likewise, I don’t know if I’m going to be involved in any of those projects — at present, I’m not signed up for any of them but if Pro Se asked and the project fit with my already packed schedule… maybe.
Anyway, I’m continuing work on the current story in front of me — which is a Lazarus Gray piece. I really, really want to finish this one before we go out for Christmas break. Originally I had planned for five stories in this fifth volume but if this current tale stretches long enough and can resolve all the dangling subplots from the earlier stories, I might close the deal with this one. We’ll see. Once I’ve put Lazarus to bed, I can begin work on the crossover novel. As I teased yesterday, I have a title now and I have the general gist of the plot so it’s just a matter of getting started on the writing. I know some of you are very excited to read it but keep in mind that Pro Se will have to publish Gravedigger Volume 2 plus Lazarus Gray Volumes 4 & 5 before you’ll ever see the crossover novel. So even if I were finished with the crossover novel today, you probably wouldn’t see it in print for another year (at least).
I’m about to start reading The Ministry of Illusion: Nazi Cinema And Its Afterlife by Eric Rentschler. Not sure if I’ll find much in here to pepper into my stories but you never know. If nothing else, it looks interesting!
Got a nice preview of something cool related to The Rook this morning. Very, very sharp. I think some of you will really enjoy this… alas, I can’t discuss it at present.
Isn’t that always the way?
I’ll be back tomorrow with more chatter and teasing. Who knows? Maybe I’ll actually be able to give you some hard details about some of the mystery projects out there. You know know!
Take care, my friends.
