Update, March 2015

1. Ghost in the Mythe
I'm about halfway through the big content edit on this story. I expect it'll run around 90-95,000 words when it's done, and I'm aiming to have it out in May. This one has taken longer than I'd like, but it's Miko's story, and if you've been following the Guardians of the Pattern series, you know that Miko is both complicated and damaged. This one has been hard to write.

2. Leythe Blade
This is my next fantasy story. It's a stand-alone, and it fits in with the Guardians of the Leythe novels, but is also going to lead in to a fantasy trilogy I have in the works, tentatively titled Kingmakers. The first draft on this story is done, and I expect it to run around 65,000 words, about the same length as Burn the Sky. This will probably be available late summer or early fall.

3. Facing the Mirror
Amazon has very kindly price-matched Facing the Mirror, so you can now download it for free there.

4. Wildfire Psi
Book four in the Guardians of the Pattern series is Wildfire Psi. This is Luka's story, and I'm hoping to have it out at the end of this year or the beginning of next. The first draft is done, but it needs some work before it's ready.

5. The Big Picture
If you've read all my stories, you might have noticed that there's an underlying interconnectedness there. Little hints that all of these stories fit together somehow. I'm currently putting together a timeline for all the books so you can see how the puzzle might look when it's finished. Assuming, of course, that it ever is... The ideas keep coming, and I'm nowhere near done with this world yet.

6. Other projects
I've also had a couple of large, ugly plot rats start gnawing on my leg and bugging me to write other stories, one of which is Draven's (working title: Tangled Threads). I imagine I'll be compelled to write it sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, I don't get to have cute, furry little plot bunnies like the other writers. No, I'm stuck with these hungry, hairy rodents with glowing red eyes, scaly tails, and sharp, pointy teeth. I suspect it's got something to do with karma, but I'm hesitant to investigate.
