Some of you know that I spent the day with the fine folks at Ridan Publishing yesterday. We had an excellent day of planning and prep. I’ve got some work to do but the end result should be amazing.
Keeping in mind that things periodically change, currently we have a production schedule for my books.
Owner’s Share – August 2010
Cape Grace – November 2010
Overton* – February 2011
Dead Tree Schedule:
October 2010 – Half Share
November 2010 – Ravenwood
April 2011 – Full Share
August 2011 – Overton*
October 2011 – Double Share
April 2012 – Captain’s Share
October 2012 – Owner’s Share
April 2013 – South Coast
October 2013 – Cape Grace
We had a lot of discussions around this schedule and the Ravenwood release is speculative at the moment. It will depend on some things that we can’t predict yet (like how much editing Half Share actually takes, how much work I need to do on Ravenwood, and how much work Ridan takes on from their other authors.) What’s clear to me is that we’ll be getting all the works out with the same quality — or better — that you’ve seen so far in terms of cover art, book layout, etc. Oddness can still happen, but that’s our plan for now.
But wait! That’s not all!
We spent part of the day working on Michael J. Sullivan’s The Crown Conspiracy in preparation for release in Podiobook format. For those of you who love fantasy and like the way I read, standby for a romp! Mike is the artist who did the cover art for Quarter Share but he’s an author himself and has a six book series in production. Book four, The Emerald Storm was recently released, and he’s working on book five now.
Watch Podiobooks.com for a release of The Crown Conspiracy written by Michael J. Sullivan and read by Nathan Lowell in late summer or fall.
And there’s still more!
If you didn’t get one of the “release tee shirts” either before or at the event, we’ve placed an order for another printing. You can order them from the same secret link you used before. There will be a few more mediums, but a number of extra larges and larges. This is a limited printing and we probably won’t be printing up any more when these are gone, so order ’em if you want ’em.
Thank you to all the people who made this BaltiCon special for me. I’m looking forward to a very productive year and to producing a lot of great content.
*Overton is the tentative title for the sequel to Ravenwood.
