Upcoming Works

 

Personal problems and life events spanning the past several years gummed up the works for a while, but Peace Talks is almost complete!  For the last several months, he’s been cranking out chapters with blazing speed, under the guidance of his new canine buddy Bru and his wife Kitty’s four majestic cats.

As of June 17th, 2019, the current draft of the novel is up to chapter 66, with only one chapter left to write!  We don’t have a release date yet, but we’ll update this page, send out a newsletter, and tweet it to the high heavens the moment we do.

In the meantime, here’s what else we have on the slate. New items (updated July 11th, 2018) are in RED. At a glance:
