Apologies. I haven't been doing a very good job keeping my readers up to date lately.
But I have good reasons.
I'm a private person, but I'll confess here that my life has been experiencing a sea change over the last two years and that is culminating in me (and my boys and dogs) moving a couple of states away. That story may end up in another blog post when things finally settle down.
I've managed to stay on top of the schedule for release of the next book, for the most part. It's going to be a few weeks later than I intended. I originally planned to release Valence, Book 3 of Confluence mid-June to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the release of Fluency. But life gets in the way sometimes. My favorite editor had a baby, I'm moving to Pittsburgh and packing up my home. But we keep on rolling.
Expect VALENCE in early July.
There won't be preorders. They don't benefit me as an independent author the way they do traditionally published authors (in fact they are bad for my bottom line overall), so I don't do them.
If you want to be the first to know when Valence hits the metaphorical shelves on Amazon, put your email into the little bar at the top of any page on my website. I don't send email often, but when I do, it will be something you're gonna want to know about.
I'd like to also mention the recommended reading order for my two series. Both series are set in the same universe and the storylines intertwine.
Fluency (Confluence Book 1)
Remanence (Confluence Book 2)
The Druid Gene (Soon to be renamed: StarSeed, The Druid Gene Book 1)
Valence (Confluence Book 3)
What will I publish next? I'm plotting out two books right now. One is a Druid Gene Book and one is the 4th (and possibly final) Confluence book. As soon as that's all mapped out, I'll know which book will be coming next, probably in early 2018.
