I was just interviewed about the Unseen Things series on Wayne Clingman’s Blogtalk Radio show. You can listen to the playback of the interview here or check it out in the embedded player below. By the way, the person in the picture in the player is Wayne, not me.

I’ve started work on the fifth book in the series, Unseen Things: Immortals. Last night I did the cover and all the other graphics I need for it, and today I blew through the first chapter, on very little sleep mind you, in about two and a half or three hours.
If I had to give a rough estimate of when it’ll be finished and ready to publish, I’d say that just judging by how the past entries in the series have gone, it’ll probably be by the end of the second week of February. There are some big changes right off the bat in this one and I can’t wait to see what my fingers spew out next. 😉
Synopsis: Word had spread amongst the tribal leaders in the Faranox dimension of the human raid on one of their towns in which many of the Agaronin were killed and all of their slaves were freed. Now, five tribal leaders have banded together and are starting work on a massive new settlement in order to better defend against the human threat.
Each tribal leader had brought all of their Agaronin and all of their slaves to help build the massive new village…however, they made one huge mistake. They attacked the village of the blue fins that the humans had befriended, damaging buildings and taking over half of the village’s population as new slaves, leaving their newest team member, a blue fin named Freddie and his human friends looking for revenge, but they were going to have to be smart about it.
Derek had planned the first attack, and now it was up to him to plan a brand new one on a scale he’d never imagined. With the help of the entire team, most of their parents, their friends and the rest of the blue fin villagers, they were going to have to take out an enemy threat that had them outnumbered by fifteen to one while rescuing all of the slaves and the blue fin villagers in the process.
Many other life changing events await them as well, including more new team members, a new house, new revelations about the origins and purpose of the blue fin people and a rep that’s suddenly breaking centuries old protocols to make personal contact with them.
Unseen Things: Revenge is the fourth book in the Unseen Things series.
You can also find the book on Goodreads if you’d like to add it or review it.
Yes folks, in just two weeks I’ve managed to pound out a 92,142 word novel. How? A lot of coffee and a hell of a lot of missed sleep. So now the proofreading process begins, which usually ends up taking around five or six days, and then I have to come up with a good one sheet for it and go through the other stuff I need to do before I publish it, and then it’ll be out there, as well as being available right here on the website like the others.
I’m pretty single minded when it comes to the things I’m working on, so I’m thinking I’ll have it ready to go by the end of next weekend, which would be January 19th, if not sooner. I’ll update the website and all the pertinent sections after the book is published.
Revenge update: I’m 58,312 words into the book so far and I just finished chapter 10. Six more chapters to go! As I said before, the beginning of the book is quite heavy, so after that whole part was over, I did lighten things up. There are also a lot of new revelations in this book about the blue fin people that are leading to what’s coming up in the future. Good stuff, and I’m really loving writing this series. I do think I need to take a break though after this fourth book. Pumping out a full length novel every three and a half weeks or so has really taken its toll on me mentally because of the lack of sleep. Not only do I need sleep, but I need to look into ways to promote the series.
Anyway, that’s what’s been going on. Lots of big changes in this book. Every book in the series has been a progression, not only in the depth and scope of the overall story, but also in the development of the characters themselves. I know these characters intimately, and the worst day ever is going to be the day I write the final word in the last book of the series. How many books will there be? I have no idea. I guess we’ll find that out when the time comes. I don’t see it ending anytime soon though. As long as there are unexplored dimensions and new adventures to be had, I’ll keep writing. 🙂
I just finished writing chapter 8 and I’ve broken the half way point. Yay me! I’m averaging a chapter a day, which is seriously awesome. After the initial part of the book, which was incredibly serious, I took things back to a far lighter level, although I do have to say that one part was incredibly sad. I killed off a minor character from the first book, and it was really just…tear jerking. For me it was anyway.
I’m working diligently on it, and I’m really hoping that the next book will be out by somewhere around the end of January. If I keep writing at the pace that I have been, it’s a good bet that it will be.
