Greetings and welcome back. It’s been kind of a whirlwind last few months and I just wanted to take a moment share what’s been happening and what’s on the near horizon.
First, as always, thanks to all of you who have either purchased or borrowed FOOL’S GOLD and THE JACK FOEHAMMER OMNIBUS. I really, really appreciate your support. Hopefully, you’ve been looking forward to CARSON LYLE’S WAR: PART TWO. If circumstances permit, it will come to you soon.
Work on Part Two (and other projects) has been sidetracked many times since October. Early on, it was a story problem. Things were not planned out as well as I had thought and I wrote myself into a corner. It’s not an excuse, just a statement of fact. There were somethings that HAD to be worked out, or this would have been a broken part two on release, and you deserve better than that.
Naturally, of course, other things inserted themselves to impede progress. Some things welcomed (birth of a another grandchild), others were not (best if don’t elaborate on this). But all of those things intruded on my writing time and just made extremely difficult next to impossible to get into a writing state of mind. So on the rare occasion I had a chance to write…well…nothing happened.
Thankfully, though, things are settling down and I’m getting ramped up to get back to dedicated work on writing these stories, setting a release schedule for the remainder of the year…and sticking to it.
The schedule is still being worked out, but I expect CARSON LYLE’S WAR: PART TWO to be released on Amazon by June 30, with subsequent parts coming every 30 days after that. I expect there to be three more parts to this story in total.
If you’ve read FOOL’S GOLD, then you know Carson already has a price on his head on the planet Rygel above and beyond the charges the Authority already has against him. My mailing list subscribers will be receiving the prequel short story about that incident tentatively titled: CARSON LYLE AND THE KING OF RYGEL somewhere around the end of May.
And on top of all that, I have some story ideas in the hard science fiction and cyberpunk genres incubating in the idea tank right now, that could see the light of day between releases of Carson Lyle stories. At this point, I would expect those to be released under the Jack Foehammer pen name.
That’s all for now. I’ve got to get back to work.
Till next time…
