Imagine my surprise when I log into my website and get a 404 message. And then the desperation kicking in when I realise the auto-renewal thing hadn’t auto-renewed correctly. And then the shame of not discovering this sooner, because I’m pretty sure my site was down for a month without me checking. Sigh.
But now that it’s back up and running it’s time for an update!
I’ve paused the Knights of Many series. They’re unpublished so it shouldn’t affect you guys too much, but I was struggling to finish everything up to an adequate standard and I needed some time away. Maybe a year away, not sure. Either way they are definitely going to need tweaking after the wizards of the coast ogl 1.1 debacle, as I’m going to stay as far away from any potentially trademarked words, which may be tricky since these stories are definitely based on D&D.
The good news is that I’m back to Raike! I had to take some time away from Raike at the start of the pandemic as the world was kinda depressing at that time and I needed something amusing to work on. But you can’t keep a bad mercenary down, so his troublemaking ways are back. I can’t give you any details on when book 6 will be finished or even out because I haven’t even given it to my editor yet. What’s it about? Raike has to sneak one of General Kasera’s spies out of a far away city, only he arrives a little too late.
And there will be a Raike 7 as well as I have the first chapter already written and I like the direction it’s heading in. All I need now is to not need to work for someone else as then I’d have so much more time on my hands to write all these stories. But even then I’d still complain that there aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything I want.
That’s it on the updates I’m afraid. I hope you all have an awesome 2023.
