September Update Post

This one is going to be real brief because I kind of forgot about it, and I leave for FenCon shortly.


I will be signing books tomorrow night in Dallas

Then I will be the Guest of Honor at FenCon. There is a fan meet up. The whole WriterDojo crew will be there and we will plan on recording a few episodes with other guests. I’ll also be running another Gritty Cop Show game where they auction off seats for the con’s charity.

The next weekend I will be at Salt Lake City FanX and you can find me at the Bards Tower booth which will be selling my books.

Writing Stuff!

I am finishing up Tower of Silence, book 4 in the Saga of the Forgotten Warrior. It comes out in April. I’m behind on this one because I made a plotting mistake earlier on and had to go back and rearrange a bunch of stuff. Those are the breaks. Sometimes when you are writing a fantasy series, you just walk up the wrong hill and then once you realize it you can either walk back down and go the right way, or you can plow ahead stupidly and then get stuck in the mud and never finish the series… Not that I’m thinking of any particular fantasy authors as I say that.

Up next I’ll be working on Monster Hunter Memoirs: Fever, with Jason Cordova. I believe it is planned to come out toward the end of 2023.

There’s a bunch more stuff coming that I don’t have time to talk about right now, that I’ve mentioned before. Don’t worry. Still working on it!

There are also several short stories I owe people between now and the end of the year.

Release Dates

No Game For Knights came out earlier this month, and it rocks. Check it out. That’s an anthology of noir sci-fi and fantasy stories edited by me and Kacey Ezell. It’s filled with fantastic authors.

In Defense of the Second Amendment is out January.

Tower of Silence is out April. I’ll be doing a big preorder push like I did for the gun book when I get back from FenCon.

Lost Planet Homicide 2 for Audible is done, and I think it’ll be out in January, but I’m not sure on that.

Other Stuff!

The Kickstarter for the MHI Miniatures Game from Everything Epic is over, but you can still get in late on the Backerkit. It is moving along. They’ve been working on art and models and sending me updates. Once I’m done with these two cons I’ll get more of the artwork posted for you guys.

Grimnoir leather bound. After a couple years of nut kicks and people going out of business, Spellbound is up shortly at the new printers. I should hopefully have some really happy announcements on that within 6 weeks or so.

  1. I would love to read a story about the time Chad spent in New York, between 1987 and the Xmas party in 1995.
    Love your work, I own nearly everything you have written and all the audio books as well.
    Appreciate your shooting skills as well.

  2. I am insanely curious now about MHM Fever. I loved the first series and now I want to know about this new one. Any hints or tidbits please?

  3. As for the new Writers Dojo, I’m someone who doesn’t think Lovecraft was racist, but (like you said about writers being basket cases) rather a general misanthrope.

    1. I saw a quote someone posted that was supposed to be from Lovecraft saying how he was so awful and had such abhorrent ideas when he was ill and didn’t know how anyone could have let him continue that way…or something like that. I should have saved it. And it sort of sounded like he might have meant more than the crazy and his attitudes toward people and races, but then he died. So, if the passage was real, there was never a chance for him to live out whatever realization he had when he was no longer “ill”.

  4. Plowing ahead stupidly and never finishing the series…
    You wouldn’t be thinking of an author with the initials PR, would you? Been waiting eleven years for book 3 of 3…

    Authors have to auth but that’s just nuts. Sometimes I’m just tempted to wait until an entire series is published before I buy just because of that example. But, I can’t help myself 🙂

  5. Huh, new Dark Tide Rising anthology with sexy schoolgirls with guns? The first anthology had sexy cheerleaders with guns, the description even PROMISED sexy cheerleaders fighting zombies! But the actual story had very little cheerleader-on-zombie combat and was kind of depressing since most of them turned into zombies, and they were just kids.
    So the new cover doesn’t excite me much.

  6. Your productivity and work ethic impress and delight me. Thanks for keeping us up to date. I look forward to the arrival of more. Glad you take the time to have a life, what with all that work! Love that you support others. That generosity of spirit is rare and wonderful as well.

  7. I purchased the entire leather bound set back in the day. Did those purchases get lost in the shuffle over the years?

    1. “Grimnoir leather bound. After a couple years of nut kicks and people going out of business, Spellbound is up shortly at the new printers. I should hopefully have some really happy announcements on that within 6 weeks or so.” If you ordered the set, they can’t send the set until the set is finished. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
