[Note: This will be one of my last detailed blasts as I will now be using my newsletter to share progress reports. Fear not, I’ll still post new book releases here after my newsletter receives them.]

Huzzah! Yesterday, I conquered a scene in a chapter of The Demon Lord of California. It was giving me fits for months. With that roadblock behind me, things are picking up speed.

Throwing a teaser out here, that problem chapter deals squarely with cementing the relationship between Calico and Agustin. While this fun urban fantasy novella is so close to being done, it will require some clean up before it’s ready. Hopefully not long!

But right now, I’m drained.  So I thought I would torment my dark fantasy readers and say The Phoenix Hatchling is still very much on the table.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m writing Hatchling in tandem with The Phoenix Fledgling, because it’s pretty much a continuation of a larger sub-storyline. Both books already have solid foundations,  they just need some fleshing out.  That means, once Hatchling finally gets released, Fledgling won’t be too far behind.  Also, a good chunk of the fourth book is also done, but has been gathering dust. Click here to read more about that.

With the creation of my email newsletter, over the next few months, I just might drop a few teaser chapters of Demon Lord and Phoenix Hatchling. But the catch is you have to be signed up get them.

Also exclusive to my newsletter, and coming soon, are character bios, portraits, and listenable theme music. I may also be telling secrets from time to time.

Introducing Infinity 8: an urban fantasy soap opera series

CalicoPortraitI’m implementing changes and other edits on Infinity 8. It’s a fun urban fantasy soap opera with lgbtq characters. And tons of family drama.

Last night I polished 239 pages. (Whew!!) and have 109 pages left. Beta reads are just around the corner! Now to pick a date for professional editing as well.

The story of Infinity 8 is about Calico Winghorse and the inter-dimensional portal he constructed as a small child. Calico is a mongrel demon wizard triplet from another realm. He is also the God of Space and Time.

This particular series is really titled The New Infinity 8, as there are plans to take Calico back to his younger days. That series will have a prefix of The Original Infinity 8. To learn more, stay tuned!
