I’ve been in a flurry of motion with the finalization of the final book in The Valley Trilogy, Immolation. I started writing in December, finished the rough draft by mid January. Then I put it out there to my crew of Betas, who did an awesome job of tweaking the product. I set an internal deadline of 15MAR17 to have the completed manuscript ready for submission to my publisher.
I am pleased to report that it’s ready for submission, all 94866 words of it. Going off of past experience, the publishing process will take several months. My company will design a cover, lay the book out in both print and ebook format, and put the script through the wringer of professional copyediting. At the other end of the process will be a shiny new book with my name on the cover, and the Valley Trilogy (and Paul Thompson’s tale) will be complete. Barring some unforeseen disaster, the book should be available NLT June.
Not sure yet where I’m going in the future, but there are some intriguing prospects out there. We shall see.
Keep an eye peeled for excerpts from the book and other stuff.

I had the pleasure of being part of the Beta reading crew on this book and I highly recommend it. Shed a few tears and cussed out loud a few times at certain bits, some of them at the same time.
Can’t wait for it to drop.
The pleasure was mine. Your input was excellent, sir. It resulted in a better product.
I’m thinking Ranger Pete could be in danger of being the basis of a future protagonist.
What I like about buying the e-books is having them on my kindle so when a new book in a series comes out I can easily click on the previous ones if I want to refresh what’s already happened.
Looking forward to catching up with Paul Thompson’s struggles.
June will be soon. And Ranger Pete does make a fine character, lord knows he’s something in real life. Look for another interview soon, I have a SF dude lined up as well.
