Updates on Things

So it’s been a little while since my last post, but between finishing out the 2nd to last semester of my BA and the holiday season (which makes both of my jobs madhouses) I’ve not had a lot of time on my hands.

However, I have managed to get a bit of writing done. I’m at 50K words for my new Work-In-Progress which is a new series set on the other side of the world from The Cerberus Rebellion and The Hydra Offensive.

Right now my plan is to get this novel finished, polished, edited and then start querying it for traditional publication. At which point I’ll return to working on The Centaur Incursion.

The ideas for new series and storylines continue to flow and I realized the other day that I’m going to be writing Gunpowder Fantasy for a very long time. Which is something I’m entirely ok with.

I’m also in the process of setting up a Patreon. I think I want to get to the Query step on this new WIP before I launch it, but it’s nearly finished.

Right now, my goal is to have the first draft of this new novel finished by summer, an ambitious task but I think I can handle it!

The Cerberus Rebellion Cover Redux

So I’ve got the cover for The Hydra Offensive sitting in my email inbox, just waiting for the reveal, so stay tuned for that.

But with the new artist for the cover came a new set of typography. Trevor over at trevorsmithart.com did the cover for Hydra and gave me some ideas for typography, which my lovely wife was kind of enough to use to update the cover for The Cerberus Rebrellion

So here’s The Cerberus Rebellion with new typography.

And let me know if you’d like to receive an Advanced Review Copy of The Hydra Offensive. It’s coming soon!

Interview with Peter V. Brett, Author of The Warded Man (The Demon Cycle)

An excellent interview.

Guild Of Dreams

by A.M. Justice

51hu1K5f9LLAbout eight years ago, my husband came home from work and announced that his coworker Peter had given notice so he could become a full-time fantasy author. Curious and skeptical, I bought the coworker’s book, thinking, “Let’s see what this guy’s got.” I quickly learned he had the right stuff. From the opening lines about a community gathering together in the wake of a strange fire, New York Times Bestseller The Warded Man hooked me, and I’ve been a loyal follower of Arlen, Lessa, Roger, Renna, Ahmann, and Inevera since. My copy of The Skull Throne, Book Four of The Demon Cycle, published by Del Rey, will be delivered to my Kindle today, and I look forward to reading it on an upcoming family vacation.

I admire Peter’s tight prose, inventive storytelling, and nuanced characterizations. Arlen is one of my all-time favorite fantasy heroes, and…

As if I didn’t have enough to do already…

So as I’m sure I’ve made clear before, I am a fountain of new ideas and new worlds.

Usually, I can jot down the basics of my ideas and store them away for later, when I have time to develop them fully.

Well, once in a great while that just doesn’t work. Such is the case now.

I actually had the basis for this idea some time ago, and it was behaving nicely in my Google Keep, just hanging out in the list where it belongs. Except I made the mistake of choosing a muse for the main character, and from there the idea started growing at an alarming pace.

And so, now I’m going to attempt to work on two series more or less concurrently.

Wish me luck!

Oh and an update, I should have The Hydra Offensive back from my editor for line edits this week and then I’m just waiting for the cover art to get it rolling!

If anyone is interested in doing a review to be posted on Goodreads or Amazon, let me know. If you haven’t read The Cerberus Rebellion, I’d be more than happy to send you a copy.
