Didn't realize it had been so long since I did an update. Whoops! It's not for a lack of things to talk about, it's just that time got away from me. My apologies to the people who read this, and also my thanks for taking the time.
Where to begin... Five Man Midget Death Squad was sent off to the editor last weekend. Based on prior experience, I should see a first round copy in a couple weeks, go through the changes and send it back to her for a second round. The cover artist still has another project in front of mine, but he believes he should have time to get a sketch to me of the actual cover.
Book 5 is coming along nicely, I haven't been immersed/obsessed in the process like I have been in the past. Mostly, because it's summer and I have a lot of misc house projects to deal with (painting a ceiling, replacing tiles in my kitchen, yadda yadda yadda). I also have a super secret project I'm working on that's completely unrelated to book writing that may/may not require patenting. I'm talking to a lawyer about it tomorrow...hopefully.
I'm not going off the reservation with the style of this book. It should be pretty similar to book 4, with more of it being narrated by M, rather than Thomas. There's several reasons for this and none of which I wish to detail (spoilers). At the moment it looks like the big war with the UHD and Osiris will probably take up 1/2 of the book. Meaning, there's a TON of action in this book. Don't worry, there's some spliting of it. Action is like everything else worthwhile in this world. A little is fine, more is better, but too much can lead to boredom.
