Hey, so am I!
So I wanted to make sure James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse series was on your radar. It’s a sci-fi book series about an alien threat stirring up war among Earth, its former colony of Mars, and other human-occupied planets, moons, and asteroids in the solar system. Just a terrific read, with a great focus on character-driven adventure. I’m just wrapping up reading the second book in the series.
A new TV adaptation of the books is debuting next month on the Syfy channel. As far as I can tell, the first season of the series (also called The Expanse) is based on the first two books, Leviathan Wakes and Caliban’s War. I’m looking forward to it!
Anyway. Two things to mention about my own books:
1) I recently wrapped up my novel for this year’s National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is a challenge to write a 50K-word novel within the 30 days of November. Due to other stuff I was busy with earlier in the month, I ended up having to cram about 40,000 words into the space of twelve days. And then I still somehow finished two days early! Whew.
There’s a lot of rewriting and revising ahead of me. But you can expect to see this new book — the first novel in my new supernatural mystery series called City of Ports (or The Shadow Over Portsmouth) — debut sometime in
2016 (2016 edit: Nope, it’ll be 2017).
2) Next week — December 10! — the fourth and final installment of my serialized supernatural thriller novel, The Pseudo-Chronicles of Mark Huntley, arrives on Amazon. You can pre-order Part 4 here, or just bookmark the page until the release date.
