The release of Shadows Episode 5 will be June 6, 2014 and not April 18, 2014 as originally stated.
Well, I can’t say I expected to go months without giving everyone an update, but life is what it is. Thankfully, things seem to be settling into a more stable rhythm and the writing is progressing nicely.
Shadows, Episode 5: Torture, the finale in the Bryan McAllister and Larien Russell character arcs, will become available on April 18, 2014. The book has caused me some grief and requires a bit more post-production work than previous episodes. It is, however, longer than the preceding episodes. We’ll see whether or not it becomes the longest as I plod through making tweaks here and there.
The cover art has been finalized for some time now and is available here.
Once Torture is available, I will be producing a Volume 1 hardcover edition of Shadows, which will contain books 1 through 5. This will likely be available sometime in Q4 2014 prior to the release of the next book in the series.
The untitled novel previously mentioned in my October update is also progressing, though it is quite a bit longer than the Shadows books and consequently takes more time to produce. I suspect it will be available sometime in Q3 or Q4 2014. Once I have final release dates, I will post them here.
I have updated the coming soon page with my current projections. Thanks to burnout from various life events that have taken place since October, Shadows #5 is still incomplete. I hope to use some of my holidays next week to get some writing done and hope to have it ready for mid-late January. I’m aiming for the 24th of January as a release date, but I will not state that with any finality until it’s a sure thing.
The book I thought would be ready for December has taken on a life of its own and has grown beyond its original outline (that happens sometimes). It is as yet unfinished. I have a lot of goals for the New Year and will keep you all posted. My apologies to everyone waiting for the next episode of Shadows. It will be out as soon as it is ready.
Unfortunately, due to illness and other things beyond my control, the release of Shadows: i am anna has been delayed. It should hopefully be up electronically in the usual places within the next 2–3 days. With any luck, it might even get up towards the end of the 16th. The print releases of Shadows are also delayed until further notice, but I do hope to have them all up by mid-September. Hopefully life will accommodate my wishes.
My site now displays the new covers for all of my books. At some point over the next six to eight weeks, I will be updating all of my books as they stand on e-retailers to use these new covers.
Book pages have been updated to include links to current titles available on Amazon.ca, Amazon.com.br, and Amazon.co.jp.
Coming up next Friday, December 14 is the release of Shadows, Episode 3: From Darkness.
Coming up January 18, 2013 is the release of the final part of the Legion Rises Trilogy: The Machine.
Due to some unforeseen events coming up in my life, I am more pressed for time than usual and as such am forced to make some changes to my publication schedule. While I still hope to have all of The Legion Rises done and published this year, I have nevertheless dated the publication of the final part of the trilogy, The Machine, in February of the coming year, as this fall will be incredibly busy for me outside of writing. I’ve also pushed back the novel, Shadows of a Distant Past, until early next year and relocated the final two parts of this season of Shadows to fall to make sure Carundas makes it out the door come July.
I’m not entirely sure what caused Crashed to not appear on Sony the first time around, but it has now appeared. Shadows: The Escape is now on Sony as well as Kobo and Diesel. Still waiting on Barnes & Noble for Shadows and Apple for both.
Shadows is a superhero series I began developing back in 2002. It’s taken a decade to get it into a form that I can be proud of. Despite its remaining kinks, I feel the premiere episode will be a strong introduction for the series.
The Escape introduces the main protagonist through much of the series, Bryan McAllister, his uncle Royal, and a host of other characters that will be seen throughout the series, including psychic detective James Sterling, Royal’s sadistic minion Jason Riley—a man who has a sadistic interest in Bryan—and mad scientist Dr. Whitly—an old associate of Royal McAllister and Bryan’s parents.
A brief synopsis of Episode 1:
After running into a blood-soaked naked girl, nearly being killed by his uncle’s goon, and barely escaping an exploding bus, a young jack-of-all-trades finds himself trapped in an old bunker with a team of mercenaries and an old experiment lurking in the darkness.
Shadows, Episode 1: The Escape, will be available March 15, 2012 from Amazon and Smashwords, with Kobo and others following as Smashwords distribution provides.
