Lining up the 12 projects for 2013, I am looking at the following:
My children's novella, The Seven Sisters is scheduled for a January release and that is the only release that is certain. The rest are tentative and I have not yet worked them into a specific schedule:
- The Adventures of Jill Noir, a hard SF braided novel co-written with author Ken Pick. The first chapter received an Honorable Mention in 2009 from the Washington Science Fiction Association and two other chapters have been published in anthologies.
- The expansion of Yew Manor into a full novel.
- A nonfiction work exploring the Law of Focus, a non-metaphysical psychological concept that is the real power behind the so-called "Law of Attraction."
- Grave Gate, a sword and sorcery tale featuring a quartet of adventures storming the fortress of a liche.
- The Lord of All Futures is the working title of a novella that takes place in a post-apocalyptic south-central Pennsylvania with locations in Shippensburg, Carlisle, Camp Hill, Harrisburg, and Lancaster.
- Petri is the working title of an eco-SF novella where 75-square miles of south-central Pennsylvania real estate and its inhabitants finds itself mysteriously transported to a barren, sterile world.
- A collection of dark fantasy short stories with the working title, Dark Dreams and Darker Visions
I am leaving the four other projects open and they will be announced much later, most likely as they near their date of release.
Be aware that I am not planning on releasing one literary work a month, but by December 31, 2013, there will be at least 12 separate works published under my name.
