As the title indicates, there’s a lot going on in the world of writing. For starters, 5th book of A Shrouded World, A Shrouded World: Asabron, is out for pre-order and set to drop on 24 December, 2019. So, after shredding paper, getting too full, and the family settles down for a winter’s nap – or in the case of those south of the equator, a summer’s nap – you can kick back and take in the continued adventure of Mike Talbot and Jack Walker. And yes, Trip.
That’s not all, books 6 and 7, A Shrouded World: Bitfrost and A Shrouded World: Hvergelmir, are also out for pre-order. Bitfrost on 17 March and Hvergelmir on 16 June. The electronic, print, and audio versions of all three will drop on the same date. I’ll place the links at the bottom of this post.
Now, you’d think that would be it, right? No. I also have the 3rd book of Red Team, Red Team: Cartel Part One, out for pre-order. This one will drop 2 January, 2020. So, if you’re recovering from the New Year’s festivities, you can relax and catch up with Jack, Gonzalez, Lynn, Greg, McCafferty, Denton, and Henderson. The electronic and print version will be available on that date with the audio book following at an as yet undetermined time. I’ve contacted Mark Gagliardi and will have a more firm date for you soon.
I won’t give out any spoilers, but books 3 and 4 of Red Team are primarily focused on the Cartel. Yes, there are still creatures involved in the story, but I’ve taken these more along the lines of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six. As with many of the books, there are parts and people that crop up that weren’t part of the original concept. The story just took off in that direction and there’s not a thing I can do to stop it when it happens. After all, the characters write the story. I merely just put there thoughts and actions down and bring their tales of adventure into words.
Speaking of book 4, I’m nearing the halfway point through the rough draft of Red Team: Cartel Part Two. This one will wrap up the mini-story of the team’s involvement down south. In addition, it brings more to the front a different story arc I’ve only partially alluded to. That will be another mini-story within the entire arc of the tale. Not to worry, though. There will be monsters to chase down. I know where the characters are heading at the end of it all, but I can’t rush them to it.
Now, on Facebook, I’m in the midst of switching to an author page. I’ll still use my personal one, but I’m looking to transition to the page as it allows for a more immersive experience in my opinion. There are also two fan pages if you’d like to join them.

On pre-order for 2 January, 2020
So, that all makes for a busy holiday season. I’ll be mostly buried down at my keyboard during the holidays, but if you celebrate them, I hope they’re a time of fun and family for you. I’ll see you on the other side. As always, thank you so much for all of the support you’ve given through they years.
