It’s a new year. 2021 was a very stupid year, but I did get a lot of writing done. So this is what I’ve got going on now, and what’s coming up.
Book Stuff –
My next new release is Servants of War with Steve Diamond, which will be out March 1st.
The Gun Runner paperback just came out this week.
No Game For Knights is the next noir scifi/fantasy anthology after Noir Fatale, edited by me and Kacey Ezell. It is done, but I’m actually not sure the release date off the top of my head. (I think its summer 2022)
I’m currently working on Tower of Silence, book 4 of the Saga of the Forgotten Warrior.
After that I’ll be working on Monster Hunter Memoirs: Fever (with Jason Cordova).
There will also be a sequel to Lost Planet Homicide on Audible.
That’s the immediate future, after that will be the next main line series MHI novel after Bloodlines, and the 5th and final Saga of the Forgotten Warrior novel. The 2nd Grimnoir trilogy is still waiting for me to get around to it, and there’s another Monster Hunter Memoirs book with a different coauthor that I just signed the contracts for, but I don’t think there’s been an official announcement. I’m also doing a novella for David Weber’s War God series in a collection along with novellas from David, Jim Butcher, and more this year.
Other Stuff – There is a really fun announcement coming, but I kind of need to be on social media to push the kickstarter, and I’m currently banned (like usual!). No, sorry fan page, it’s not a TV show! It is something cool though. Hopefully I’ll be able to talk about that in a couple weeks.
We are in Writer Dojo season 2 now. Hopefully we will start recording some episodes with guest stars. The technically minded guys are working on getting all the bugs out of that now. I’ve been enjoying this.
Gritty Cop show has been on the back burner. I really need to finish that project, but I’ve been crazy busy.
Appearances – I was supposed to be at LTUE in a few weeks, but I’m out. I don’t feel like doing a bunch of useless anti-scientific bullshit to placate hypochondriac shitlibs on their power trip.
I will be at LibertyCon. I’m waiting for some communications from another con after I accepted their invite (seriously guys, answer your emails). A few others are up in the air.
Personal Stuff – It’s been a relatively mild winter on Yard Moose Mountain. I am saddened by the lack of snow plowing opportunities.
One of my kids did total one of our cars on black ice a few weeks back, which sucked (the kid is fine). Bear River Mutual Insurance was easy to work with. I bought a truck to replace it (since I’m plugging stuff, this is my 4th car from Ken Garff). I will not say what brand truck because I don’t want to get dragged into you peoples’ Ram vs. Ford vs. Chevy religious debates (I know how comment sections work!). It can pull a good sized trailer, I can put small trees in the bed, and my dog likes to ride in it.
I rarely talk about my kids online because I tick off too many crazy people, and crazy people love to yell at other people’s kids, but the biggest thing that’s happened for our family recently is one of my daughters has left on an mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She’ll be off having adventures and we won’t see her for a year and a half.
