The New Series

I've made reference to my next series on my Facebook page from time to time, and a few beta readers have had the chance to look through the text of the first.

The series is titled the Ravagers, and it's told in something of a breakneck, mini-series episode format. Lots of action, lots of chapter-ending cliffhangers, and the revelation of a pretty nasty conspiracy from the points of view of flawed characters who have varying degrees of suspicion and responsibility.

Here's the initial blurb for the first book, titled Activate.

It is the year 3,500… but humanity’s survivors don’t know that.

A series of great calamities drove humanity’s numbers to less than six figures, destroying all technology and infrastructure, and pushing memories of civilizations past to the realm of story and myth, a Golden Age never to rise again. But an unearthed Time Capsule provided the means to jump-start civilization anew, providing humanity with the tools and technology to generate massive walled cities, create communications infrastructure, and grow numbers at a rapid pace.

Two centuries have passed.

The world population has climbed again above nine figures, settling into an historic pattern of warring geographic alliances striving for planetary dominance.

For some, though, a mere world war won’t bring them what they want.

They’ll demand something far more devastating.

They’re just waiting for the right time, and the right person, to set their plan in motion.

I have the first three books in the series either written or plotted out, and the process should move along more quickly than the Aliomenti books did given both the style and the generally shorter length of the text. The books occur in the same world as the Aliomenti, though far into the future. If you look closely, you may spot a familiar face or two. :)

Oh, and covers. The covers are... well, see for yourself. :)

Activate should be available before Convergence rounds out the Aliomenti Saga. I hope all of you enjoy reading!

Cover Reveal: CONVERGENCE, Book 7 of The Aliomenti Saga

As I type this, the manuscript is in the hands of my editor. With any luck, the cover will offer a few clues as to what's coming.

No exact timing yet on availability, though late October / early November seems a reasonable speculation.

"Preserving Will" Availability and Other Notes.

Hello everyone! I've been a bit lax on the blog of late, so I'll cover a few topics here.

First, Preserving Will is now available on major online retailers and in print. Links will follow at the end of this post.

Secondly, I took December off from writing to let my mind recharge. It's been near constant writing for 18 months, and while I enjoy it, I needed the downtime. Naturally, I used the time to start drafting out the next series I plan to write, which started to flesh out much more as I scribbled and doodled with the year coming to an end. I guess if you like to write, downtime just means writing something else. :)

Yes, the Aliomenti Saga should wrap up by the time we say goodbye to 2014, and it's strange to type that. I know what the last scene in the seventh book entails, and there's a lot yet to happen before we get there, including that twist where... oops, almost gave it away. :) While the seventh book will come and go, I can't say I'll never write anything else in the Aliomenti universe. Newsletter subscribers have access to short stories, and I've jotted down a few ideas for others to post there. There are some book 6 and book 7 revelations that might be fun to explore as longer works.

Ah, yes. The next book. I do have a tentative title in mind, but I prefer to keep those hidden until the book nears completion, simply because I've changed titles before. I started working on Book 6 in earnest on New Year's Day, and as I type this I'm about 5 chapters in, with lots of craziness yet to come.

I appreciate everyone's support as always. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
