Time to break all the quiet. I cant deal with all the quiet!
It’s long past time for me to drop an update and let you guys know what’s going on. Sorry for the radio silence, but, eh, life.
So, first things first: We’ve also started the process of creating an audio edition of The Bathrobe Knight. Kinda cool, huh? This is a whole new realm for us, so I’ll definitely keep you updated as progress continues.
In addition, we’re working on bringing a couple of additional authors on board for the website. These guys have a whole new host of work to offer (unrelated to our own, of course) and some cool new worlds to explore. What can I say, I’m a firm believer that you guys need more reading material for your morning coffee breaks!
For those of you who are reading daily, I’m sure you’re aware updates have been somewhat sporadic for the past week. This is largely my fault as I was working to both finish them and keep them as up-to-date editing wise as possible. So sorry. I’m a bad person. But that should be fixed soon! I just posted an additional 7 days of material from the new project, The Eighth Rune, as well as an additional two chapters from The Bathrobe Knight Vol. II. Honestly, the TBK drop has been somewhat overdue for a while now. We intended to space it out somewhat, but it’s been difficult to gauge exactly when to drop the sections. Hopefully, going forward, I can find a steady rhythm on when to release it.
In other news, Mr. Dean has finished a majority of the content from The Eighth Rune, and we’ve set a tentative release date of May 15th for the Amazon release. That means it’s my turn to tuck in and destroy as much of as possible before then. I mean, seriously, a book where everyone dies? All the time? I’m definitely on board with this one. Honestly, I’m a bit excited about this book . . . Moreso now than I have been throughout the entire process. The Eight Rune gave us a fantastic opportunity to pull off some amazing character development and thematic concepts that just wasn’t possible in The Bathrobe Knight. This was a story that Mr. Dean had kicking around in his head for quite some time, and I know he’s had fun writing it. I can’t even begin to explain the number of 2AM phone calls I received that started with, “Hey, I just had a great idea!”
Speaking of which, I can now finally answer at least one of the lingering questions we’ve received about the next TBK book. I can finally say that Mr. Dean has started work on the next volume (he actually did this months ago) and there will definitely be a TBK4. Now that The Eighth Rune has largely reached completion, he’s able to give it his full attention. We’ve kicked around a ton of ideas for what we want to do, where we want to go, and how we want that story to develop. As always, the process and story line will continue to grow and develop as it’s written, but I think we have some really interesting ideas on the slate for this one.
