April Fool

Not quite April, but past time for me to leave an update.

Milk Run is in my word processor. It’s being difficult but I think I might be at that point where I have to write to get it out of my head.

Many of you are anxious for the next Ishmael book – which will be To Fire Called. I can’t write that one until I get Milk Run out. I need Milk Run so I have a better handle on what Ishmael is sailing into. It’s sort of like building a house. I can’t put on the walls on the second floor until I’ve got the foundation poured.

In other news, Podium has told me they’ve finished initial production on Quarter Share and are looking for a release in April. They’ve started production on the audiobook for In Ashes Born. I’m not sure when they might have that one out but I’m hoping it’s not too much longer.

Speaking of Ashes, I’ve got to get the paperback of that done before the end of May or there will be Consequences.

Fingers crossed 🙂

    Going forward, if you feel tempted to print an expected date of publication, may I suggest that you first think twice and then don’t, because you have an incredibly poor success record at accurate prognostication. If you must put a date in print, come up with your best estimate and add 10 months to it.

    My finger’s on the “BUY” button for Milk Run on Amazon as soon as it shows up, pre-order or ready-to-download.

    Thanks for the update. Looking forward to Milk Run. Are you by any chance going to do any autographed copies of Ashes available when they go on sale?

  4. Gina says:

    really anxiously awaiting publishing of Ashes in paperback and the continuation of Ish’s journeys!

    You estimate as bad as a software engineer (says the software engineer who is notoriously bad at estimation). We’ll be here when you’re done. You tell far too engrossing a tale for us to go very far for very long.

    I am so excited to find out what happens after Ashes! I’ve read/listened to everything you’ve released. Great job! I am literally going to share all these books and audiobooks with my children and my children’s children (when I get around to having children that is)

    Greetings to all. I ran across an interesting article in the April 22, 2016 edition of NASA Tech Briefs. Seems that NASA is working on an electrostatic solar sail, in concept much like those on the Solar Clippers. For those interested in reading the short article, here is the web address. http://www.techbriefs.com/component/content/article/1198-ntb/news/news/24515

    The quality of your work is outstanding. Many are the days in which I content myself with a “truly mediocre” tale. When I get the opportunity to delve into one of your stories, my only regret is the feeling you get when finished, and knowing the wait to come for the next taste. Still, would one rush Michelangelo in the midst of painting the Sistine Chapel?

    Your works are of that quality, at least to my wife and I.

    That being said, I greatly look forward to your latest offering.

    Have listened to one of the audiobooks and they are missing a crucial ingredient….

    Your narration….

    Just not the same without you telling it Nate…
