John, Declan, whatever alias you're using this week, what the hell has been going on with you? You don't really deliver on blogs, and you're mostly just slapping together a post filled with links to other things you're doing. What the hell? What happened to A Pius Stand? What happened to that thing with the vampires? What's going on?
Well, a few things. A Pius Stand should be done by July. Yes. July. The beta readers are going through it now, including the lovely Ann Margaret Lewis. Yes, a real, honest-to-God author is reading my stuff. I've already gotten one good review from a beta reader. The comment, well...
"durn you. now i had to go and buy the 1st two. Liked it that much."And he did, I saw the sale numbers.
So, that's good.
Right now, Honor At Stake, "that vampire novel" is with the publisher. Haven't heard back from them ... well, that's not true. I've heard back from the owner of the company, and I've heard from the art department. I got the impression my book was a few down in the stack. I have time ... and I'm already working on the sequels. All three of them.
While I'm doing that, I'm working on the sequel to Codename: Winterborn, and I'm waiting for my coauthor to do something.
By the way, E3 is out, and I'm covering it for American Journal. Enjoy.
