Well.  It’s not here…yet.  I have the companion book of short stories that I’m editing at the moment.  I’m not sure when it will be ready for the viewing world, but it should be soon.

A companion book?  What do you mean by that?

Good question and thanks for asking.  I have written a series of short stories, some of which loosely tie in with the main story line.  Most of them, however, are just brief tales of others experiencing the downfall of humankind and the rise of the night runners.  I had also opened it up for a fan fiction section for readers to submit short stories set within the framework of A New World.  Great stories, one and all.  Some will be included toward the end of the book. Others will be included in a second book of short stories that will be written later – most likely sometime this summer.

After the companion book is published, it will be a short break while I compile notes for the tenth book in the series.  May will be a busy month so I’m not sure how much will actually get accomplished.  And summer is coming.  See what I did there…Game of Thrones turned…oh, never mind.  Too much or too little caffeine.

Your messages and reviews for Reckoning were way above anything I ever expected.  I seriously have these out-of-body experiences reading them.  When I realize that they’re actually written about something I wrote, I just sit feeling so humble.  At any rate, before I begin weeping out of control, see…caffeine, I just wanted to say thank  you!  You are truly the best.

And, if you happen to have a spare moment, would you mind heading over and leaving reviews on the books.  I would greatly appreciate it.

So, I really put some words on the screen without saying much.  The companion book, A New World: Untold Stories, will be out hopefully by the end of the month.  I’ll be doing a cover reveal today or tomorrow on Facebook.  Thank you again, and I hope you all have an awesome week!
