For fans eagerly awaiting out future releases, here’s where future new releases stand.
Hurricane JJ Maguire has just finished compiling a stack of photos to be added to his book. The text is finished, and once photos are inserted, it’s off to the proofreader. The book cover is also in the works, and we are still shooting for an August release.
The Bomb Shelter: Curse of the Undead Bride is now in the hands of Randi West and Joseph Schwartz, who are in the midst of a very busy summer. Once they have read through and sent back comments on the story, I’ll be doing another draft to finish the book before editing begins. Shooting for fall on this one.
Tracy Smothers fans, I have great news: his book is about half way there. I am sending a preliminary draft out this week to Tracy for review. After he reads it and we make any editorial changes, we’ll be sitting down to start filling in the gaps on a truly amazing story. Looking early 2020 for this one, but it might get moved up depending how fast we get things done from here.
Wee Willie Davis remains on my radar, but for now, it’s been postponed. It’s possible I can still make a 2020 release date, but two more projects have bumped this one back at bit.
What are those two new projects, you may ask?
One is an historical biography I was approached to write. Someone who rubbed shoulders with Wee Willie Davis and The Black Panther Jim Mitchell. By a stroke of pure coincidence, he even makes a cameo in the Bomb Shelter’s upcoming novel with Davis and Mitchell.
The other is a much more modern story.
That’s all I will say for now. The modern tale is already in development, and it’s a very timely story. Hoping to dive in on the new historical bio once JJ and the Bomb Shelter books are released into the wild this fall.
Both should be announced this fall. Both will be released in 2020.
