Happy Thanksgiving, and writing update

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I had a great one. We went down to Delta and visited my family, got to hang out, shoot the bull, eat lots of stuff, and my kids were able to play with cows and cousins.   I love Thanksgiving, and as far as being thankful, my family has been extremely blessed this year.

And right now, I am very full of pie. So very full. So much pie… 

On the writing update bit, I can now say that you will see the following Larry Correia books come out from Baen, in this order:

Monster Hunter International

Monster Hunter Vendetta (told by Owen Z. Pitt)

Monster Hunter Alpha (an Earl Harbinger novel)

The Grimnoir Chronicles: Hard Magic

Monster Hunter ? (told by Owen Z. Pitt)

MHV will be out next year, I don’t have an official date. Then Alpha after that. Then TGC, probably in 2011. Then the next MH Owen novel shortly after TGC #1.  MHV is done. MHA is in progress. TGC:HM is done. MH? is in early scripting.  I’ve got a lot of writing to do. 

Toni really liked TGC. Which made my day. I was a little worried about this one, as it is a very different book than MHI, and I also suck at pitching ideas.  I do believe you guys will love this series though. For my MHI fans, it isn’t monstery, but it is magical, and hence there are beasties that pop up. In this case I’ve got the Summoned and a very different take on the undead.  For my gunny readers, I’ve got tons of period goodness. BARs, 1911s, Lewis guns, Thompsons, and a bunch of things that I made up.  This is the era of blue steel and walnut. And John Browning is in it.  And for readers in general, it is just a great story. 

On the leather bound hard covers, those are still a definite maybe, but will not be happening anytime soon, and certainly not this year.  I still want to persue a run though.

Also, I don’t know where this came from, as I’ve been hanging out in the top 10,000 on Amazon for the last couple of months, but I saw this today.

  • Talk about a Happy Thanksgiving!  Boo Yah. That’s the highest I’ve been in months, and I have no idea why. Unless you guys actually went for my MHI for Christmas post.  :)

    Oh, and for the orders that have been coming in, I just ran out of patches, but should have more here any day now. So if you ordered a patch recently, you’ll probably have to wait another week. I’m trying to get some in before I go to Denver.

    Hmmm…. I wonder if there is any more apple pie left?

    1. Congrats on the book deals! Keep up the momentum!

    2. That is awesome! I wish you much success on your books and many bags of money!

    3. Why so long for TGC to come out?

    4. That is great news. Congratulations. I tell everyone I know who reads Sci-Fi to read MHI. GO Team Correia!

    5. That’s great, Larry! I’m looking forward to all of them.

      Out of curiousity, what was the motivation for an MHI novel told through Harbinger?

    6. Cameron, I’m not Larry and thus can’t comment, but I’d bet that Earl would be a veritable wealth of stories over his long years of Hunting… probably enough for a whole parallel series in the MHI-verse, kinda like how Dale Brown took his novels away from the base at Dreamland and spun off a series with Jim DeFelice about “what happened at Dreamland while the previous crop of heroes was away”…

      • “. . . I’m not Larry and thus can’t comment . . .”

        But you will anyway, eh? I kid, I kid . . . ;)

        And that certainly makes sense. Makes me wonder, though, will MHI:V be another story or Earl telling a bunch of stories? Both would be cool, but time will tell.

    7. My friend posted about MHI in The Art of Manliness forum.
      After all, it is a VERY manly book. Hopefully it will garner more fans as well.

      Loved MHI! Looking forward to more.
