I realized it has been over a year since I last posted a comprehensive update of everything I’m working on or have planned. I needed to update the list of all my projects because as soon as I have a chance I’m going to redo the My Novels tab.
I just finished the edits for Monster Hunter Memoirs: Sinners from John Ringo. It will be out in December.
Today I am working on my short story for the upcoming MHI anthology. Almost every other story in there is done and they are waiting for me. And let me tell you, they are awesome. A lot of really talented people played in the MHI universe and we got some great stories as a result.
After that I will be working on MHI #6, which currently I haven’t decided on the title yet. This is a solo Owen book again. I teased where this one is going at the end of MH Legion, and in MH Nemesis when Franks offers clues about how to find the Hunters who were MIA after Las Vegas.
Sarah Hoyt is currently working on the rough draft of a collaboration called Monster Hunter Guardian, about Julie Shackleford.
After catching up on MHI (opening it up to be a shared world really complicates a universe!) I will be getting to work on House of Assassins.
Below is the list of everything I have written, what is done and on the calendar for publication, and books that are in the works with an estimated release year. On some of these they are pretty far out, so it is more of a wild guesstimate, and I still have to actually write the darn things.

I currently have plans for another Grimnoir trilogy set in the 1950s. However, that is far enough out that I do not have an estimated date. If you want a preview of this trilogy though, check out the short story Tokyo Raider.

Destroyer of Worlds – estimated 2018
Into the Storm – 2014
Into the Wild – 2016
Into the Dark – estimated 2018
I have also mentioned some other book projects that I’m working on, but they are far enough out that I am hesitant to put them down here because they keep getting bumped back for other paying work. That’s the way things go though. For example, I had the idea for Son of the Black Sword clear back in 2010.

Big Science Fiction Project – ?
The Revenge Novel – ? (only Toni and Bridget know about this one!)
