October 2013 Update
I am in the midst of proofing the print editions of Shadows episodes 1 through 4. There are a few minor changes that need to be made before I commit them, so I hope to have them out by early November.
Shadows, Episode 5 has been unfortunately delayed. This is turning into a rather unwelcome trend I’ve noticed. Between continuing education for my day job, staffing shortages, and other projects vying for my time and attention (it’s always fun to work on things that are fresh and new), I’ve stretched myself a bit too thin and am in the midst of cleaning things up so I can better manage my time. I am still committed to producing the episode prior to the end of this year. I just can’t be certain precisely when that will be.
I currently have an untitled novel in the works, which I hope to have finished and ready for polishing and proofing some time in November to early December. Depending on how well that project turns out, it will arrive online sometime late this year or early next year. There will be at least two episodes of Shadows next year, hopefully kicking up the length a little bit from the novella format they have had thus far. There are a lot of characters in this universe, and all of their stories tie together somehow. With Episode 5, the Bryan McAllister and Larien Russell storylines will conclude with answers to both of their origins. This will make room for other characters to take the spotlight. Just because I switch the focus, does not mean that the previously focal characters will disappear.
Shadows of a Distant Past will appear next year, along with a series related to both Shadows and Shadows of a Distant Past, titled The Order. The sequel to Shadows of a Distant Past, currently titled The Lightbringer will arrive either late 2014 or early 2015 to coincide with the conclusion of The Order.
