The re-release of Waking Dream: Devlin Book I is on time and will be out on September 22nd! You can pre-order a signed copy today by visiting this link.
Immortal Memories: Volume I has been sent to the editor and includes 2 brand new stories, the expanded version of Place of the Sisters and Vacant Eyes on the Eternal Sea!
Now that all the editing is behind me, I am full force on Waking Dream: The Unkindness Book II. A dark plot will be revealed, and many new characters introduced. This will be a face paced, action-filled book with elements of horror, the paranormal and the supernatural.
I am tentatively expecting to release in the first quarter of 2014! And then I will be working on Waking Dream: The Black Heart Book III, ending the Transformation Series.
Also, mark your calendars for the week of Halloween when I will be interviewed on the Nationally Syndicated radio show The Book Report with Elaine Charles. It will be on air and available through iTunes Podcasts.
I just wanted to give you a status update on where we are with release of the books, and the progress of Book II The Unkindness — for those of you who had the opportunity to read the first edition of Devlin.
Tentatively, we will be releasing the illustrated version of Devlin in Late August or Early September. After that we will be releasing the illustrated version of Immoral Memories with an additional story and illustrations on Halloween. Soon after — assuming my creative streak continues — Book II The Unkindness will be ready for January of 2014.
The Unkindness is coming along much better than I expected and I guarantee, you will be shocked at the end of the book. New characters will be revealed, the identity of the immortal traitor will be revealed, and the world will be changed forever.
For those of you who haven’t had a chance to visit http://wayoftheweird.com you might want to take a chance to read the stories there. All of the additions to the Libellus Somnium are there, and I have been blogging the new stories of The Crier at Twilight on a weekly basis. (Sometimes daily because, well, you know how the voices in your head do sometimes)
I’m getting the final edits for Devlin next week, so we will be on our way to getting the book out to reviewers before the release. If you are a dark fantasy reviewer, blog or otherwise, and have a large following on twitter or your blog, feel free to contact me for an eBook version as soon as it becomes available.
Book II is coming along nicely. I’ve provided a hint of what is to come in a recent post on the Way Of The Weird site. Book II –The Unkindness — will be a bit longer than the first book, as we start to uncover plots within plots, revisit the town of Devlin.
There is also a new addition to the Libellus, The Book of Tristan, which — if you read carefully — exposes his one of his many incarnations, which is a clue to the things to come in Book II.
The final edits are being made by my editor on book I and I will hope to be announcing an official release date within the next month! But, in case you didn’t know, I have been writing quite frequently on the Way of the Weird site, expanding on information that was revealed in Book I. The Way of the Weird is specifically designed to explore the philosophical aspects of the Waking Dream. Is it real or fiction? That’s for you to decide. But if you haven’t had a chance to read the site, and are hungry for more as you await Devlin Second Edition, and The Unkindness, Way of the Weird should give you enough to keep you interested.
Spread the word, and help make the Waking Dream a reality. Awaken your Weirdness and change the world.
I am nearly half way finished with the next book, and I wanted to give you all an opportunity to give me feedback on what you’d like to see more of in the next book! Is there a character you want to know more about? Is there a different location you want me to highlight? More action? More romance? More horror?
Waking Dream: The Unkindness will expose who is behind the plot to start the Transformation. Several new characters will be introduced, and the Greater and Celestial Immortals will be revealed. Will the Dreamers survive? What will the world look like after the Transformation has completed?
