Happy New Year, Everyone!
I can’t believe that 2013 is gone. It went by so quickly but it was a good year. It saw the publication of The Dark Thorn and Unfettered, the combination of both eliminating my medical debt. And, as it turns out, both books were favorably reviewed. Thank you to everyone who bought these books. It means a lot.
Now it is 2014 and there are some big things on the horizon. I will not talk about them yet. Let’s just say that I will be partaking in two different anthologies, one of which is the sequel to Unfettered. It already has one helluva a line-up. Proceeds from this new anthology will go toward alleviating medical debt, medical bills, medical co-pays, medical deductibles (see a theme here?) for others working in this industry who need the financial help. I can’t wait to tell you all about it but, needless to say, I will be paying forward to others all the help you guys gave me!
There is still one thing to take care of though. The Signed & Numbered edition of Unfettered.
As I’ve said previously, the signature pages for the book have been making the rounds with the book’s contributors for almost a year. Twenty-two people in all. It takes a long time to get that many signatures done. I won’t make the same mistake in future anthologies, I’ll tell ya that!
Blake Charlton currently has the pages. He posted this picture tonight on his Facebook page:
As you can see, there aren’t many signatures left to finish. Blake will finish his sometime in the next week. Then they are on to Tad. Then up to the Pacific Northwest. It’s even easier than you might think though. Terry, Peter, Todd, and I all live in close proximity to one another. It should be easy to get those final four signatures done.
Todd Lockwood is also contributing new cover artwork for this book. He is in the middle of completing that. No word when he will be done but when he is, you all will be the first to know.
In short, I’m hoping to have the book to the printer soon (next three months at the outset). I can’t be more specific than that because it depends on the factors posted above. And when the book is completed in its entirety and it is sent to the printer, that news will also be posted here immediately!
Thank you for your patience. You have no idea how excited I am for this book to be done. This will sound crazy, but I want this book on my shelf as badly as you all do!
More news when it becomes available. Have a wonderful start to 2014! And I hope you are reading something great. I’m currently reading Red Rising by Pierce Brown. Look out world. Add this book to your reading lists now. It publishes soon and you won’t want to miss it.
In Great Care,
