In other news, right now I’m working on editing Swords of Exodus. It is pretty much done. There are a couple of small scenes at the very end which need to be written, but now it is just editing. We should have it wrapped up fairly soon. This one has been an editing challenge because since Dead Six came out, Mike has been sent off by the Air Force three times (Afghanistan, Spokane for 6 months, and now Germany for 6 months) and my half was originally written four years ago.
I’m doing another novella for Privateer Press, and since they tweeted about it I guess I can come out and say that this time I’m writing Cygnar. Specifically a Dirty Dozen/Band of Brothers type story about Storm Blades set during the war of Caspia/Sul. For any of my fans, even if you’re not familiar with the Warmachine universe, I think you are really going to like this. Basically I get to tell a war story involving giant steam powered robots and dudes with lightning swords fighting religious fanatics. So yeah… Pretty sweet.
That other novella I wrote for them, Instruments of War, will be out in the next couple of months. I’ll put up details when I’ve got them.
The Monster Hunter International Employee Handbook and Role Playing Game (or MHIEHRGP for short) is moving right along. The writing is done. Most of the editing is done. Most of the art work is done or in the final stages. And now they’re working on layout. Steve’s been putting together the Kickstarter stretch goal extras, like the bonus campaign, the Devil’s Dozen, and getting submissions from you guys for monsters/characters/items for Hell’s Horde. We didn’t like our sample dice, as they came out too yellow, so we’re waiting for some new samples to come in, and we’ve got the pouches to hold the dice too. So everything is on track to be done on time.
Next up on the novel writing front is Monster Hunter Nemesis, or as I like to call it Agent Franks vs. The World. I’m really really excited for this one.
