Hi all, for those of you not reading our QT Games Updates on Kickstarter, our forums or Facebook posts, we’ve been busy campers! As the logo above hints, I renamed my Shadow Hunter novella as there were way too many people who started using the name since I wrote the original story nearly two decades ago (or thereabouts).
At some point, I had renamed the creature and story The Shadow Reaper, and am now returning to that. Expect to see that novella on Amazon and Drivethrufiction.com before long! It’s waiting for the editor to free up some time so we can wrap that up. I spent a great deal of time writing many drafts and polishing it, so the editing cycle will be quicker and a better book will result. It’s an exciting blended-genre tale about a very unusual creature that lives in the shadows of its victims. Cool stuff. I’m pretty sure you’re going to get a kick out of that one!
Arcane Synthesis: A Blended-Genre Anthology still isn’t on Amazon (long story, but you can read an excerpt and see some fun art here!) I’m hoping to get it on there sometime later this year as I find time. You can find it on Drivethrufiction, however. That one’s a lot of fun and has Cosmoverse-focused stories in it by Ed Greenwood, Darrin Drader, Steven Schend, Robert Duran, Allen Farr, Lee Hammock and two by yours truly!
I just finished the first draft of Dead By Dawn, a most unusual story in that I allowed my Kickstarter backers to write anywhere from a sentence to a paragraph and then I wrote a story around them, adding in a great deal of my own words and brainstormed how to make them all work in a story. The result is a fun, sometimes silly tale of an alien invasion on Earth. I have a few more drafts to go on it before it’s publishable, but I think you’ll find it a fun read. (I’ll make it available for free once the backers get their copies.)
Once those two projects are behind me (hopefully very soon indeed), I’ll move on to my last Kickstarter promise: Cosmoverse World Tour #0. I’m about halfway through my first draft of it (a few scenes have already gone through a few early drafts) and finished drawing some of the art and maps for it.
The art is nearly done for the entire book. Bottom line, I’ll have 3 books on the market (two in 2016) and a freebie story to boot. And we’re just getting warmed up! I have several irons in the fire, including another novel, a board game, a card game and some rpg material. I’ve been working ’round the clock on several creative projects.
If you would like to see more top-notch goodies heading your way, please spread the word on Arcane Synthesis, and our upcoming Shadow Reaper novella. Your support and spreading the word will go a long way toward getting more great Cosmoverse and QT Games goodness into your hands. Questions? Comments? I’m all ears. Thanks, all!
