A bit more on the plate this week than usual, so here we go.
Until the end of the month, CoM: Book 1 is 99 cents (or equivalent) on Amazon. If you're new to the site and you're thinking "what the bloody hell is CoM?" there's a link to the right of this post that goes to amazon. You can also go to the top of this page and mouse over/click on "about the books" I have a nice little page that will also tell you about it and where you can purchase it.
The writing of book 4, "Consequences" is complete. I'm about 1/3 of the way done with the first wave of edits. I'm going to pass the book along to my editor at the beginning of December, with a release date sometime that same month. Once I pass it on I'll start work on Book 5 - still working on a title for that one.
As for the standalone "5 Man Midget Death Squad" I have been writing here and there for the past few days on this one. So far, I'm really enjoying it. For the most part it'll be told in a series of short stories, with the occasional short chapter tieing up the previous story, or starting off the next. I suppose the easiest way to describe it is to think of a show where they re-enact an event and then the host/narrator comes on ending/introducing the next piece. I'm hoping this will make the book more cohesive. Plus, I'm writing it from Uhler's point of view, which I don't get to do very often. Remember, this is a standalone book, but it wraps into the main series. Think the Hobbit, or Silmarillion to the Lord of the Rings.
The thought that's been boggling my mind is how to categorize this book. I don't think there's a Historical, steampunk, fantasy documentary genre. Then again, CoM doesn't really fit into any particular fantasy genre either, so what else is new.
