I'm sure there are some FAQs floating around in the older blog entries, but I thought we'd try to put all the new ones in one place. So if you've got a question, just ask!
What stories are coming up? What are you working on? Tell me the future.
I have three series currently available right now: the Elder Empire series, the Traveler's Gate trilogy, and the Cradle series.
Book 5 of the Cradle series, Ghostwater, came out in June 2018. I'm thinking really hard about Underlord, book 6.
I'm also working on The Elder Empire right now (Summer 2018), writing both Of Killers and Kings and Of Kings and Killers, and the plan is to get them out before the end of 2018. Watch this space; they'll make lovely Christmas gifts.
The Traveler's Gate trilogy is complete and available now, but the sequel trilogy (the Traveler's Blade trilogy) will come at some point after The Elder Empire is finished.
Will there be more Traveler's Gate?
Yes! Yes, there will!
The next adventure in the Traveler's Gate universe will be called the Traveler's Blade Trilogy, and it will follow Simon after the events of City of Light.
When there's any release date information, you'll know. Until then, new Traveler's Gate stories (as well as other original short story content) is sent out over my mailing list! Subscribe now on the main page!
I didn't get one of your mailing list short stories. How do I rectify this injustice before I die?
If you're already signed up: add firstname.lastname@example.org to your Contacts (especially if you have a Gmail account). Email providers don't trust mailing lists, and this will let yours know that you asked for my emails.
Then email me at email@example.com (or use the "Contact Me" button anywhere on the website) and ask me for whatever stories you missed. I'll send them to you for the low, low price of your immortal soul!
Can I be a beta reader?
Not unless I know you. I typically keep the beta readers to a pretty narrow group, so if we don't know each other personally, you probably won't get to read my books early.
This is mostly to avoid concerns about the manuscript leaking or my undead curse spreading to the general populace, but it's possible that I'll change my policy in the future. I may do a contest or something, from which I select a handful of beta readers.
But I'll announce it if and when that happens. Till then, no early copy for you.
