I thought I’d do some updates on what is slated to come out for the Summer and rest of the year. What does that entail? Let’s list it out!
- The Chronicles of Bob: The Chronic Suicidal in all formats.
This means paperback, hardcover, and digital. Digital will be up first and priced at $2.99 on Amazon and right here at home. Purchase links will be available two weeks before widespread public release on A.B.Normal Publishing. Print editions will follow simultaneous of the Kindle release.
- The Conclusion of Johnny Nightwalker
This story will be wrapped up soon. We can then wave goodbye to one of our suburban heroes for good…or maybe not. Who knows?
The Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle prequel is being edited, and well, I want to do more additions to it. That’s the beauty of working on something you love (and when it’s in your hands). The Lodestone Files and Abnormal Side Effects…those will be retouched (or remastered) with extras. More on that below.
Anyway, I will release this novella at $0.99 when it is finished. Spring/Summer 2018 release pending extracurricular activity. There will be a new edition where both stories (Lynaly & Lilah’s) are as they were supposed to be… One.
There will be a new edition where both stories (Lynaly & Lilah’s) are as they were supposed to be… One.
This, in turn, will lead to the planned special edition of Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle. It will include the uncut version of Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle, the bits here and there that were cut, and what Al and I had called “The Lilah Bible.” It probably isn’t anything substantial, but I like creating things for everyone to see and enjoy. This edition will also include the novella about Lynaly and a bonus chapter from the next book.
- Dana and Walter’s Adventures aka The Dana and Walter Files: The Untold Stories of New Boston and Middleton
This title is just a placeholder. Ode to Captain Placeholder. Fare thee well.
Anyway, I have a miniseries that will be first written online about the favorable detective duo—Walter and Dana.
Depending on the size, it may just be a novella or novel. It could also just be an anthology. It could be any size I’d want it to be really…but hmm…well you know.
- The Lodestone Files: The Cat, The Mouse, and The Thing from Another World
I completed this last year… It was available on the site, but I didn’t get a cover done up. Well, that’s gonna change, and it’ll be available for sale, etc., Soon.
- The Lodestone Files: Books Three and Four
Yep. There are four parts. The last two will be quick follow-ups, and the series will be concluded.
As a bonus to the fun that was involved in the process…there will be a short story that I have drafted up from another location that takes place within the Lodestone universe.
Eventually, all four titles will be put in a neat little collection in all formats for you to enjoy. These were designed (unintentionally, but kind of so) to be quick reads. The super group will be pretty sweet (at least I think so—that is, in my opinion).
- Abnormal Side Effects Redux
This title will get some TLC loving because it needs to. There will be a cover overhaul, a few more stories added.
- Abnormal Essential Collection
Originally, this was what Abnormal Side Effects was going to be. However, this is going to have EVERYTHING. What do I mean by everything? It’s one of those…greatest hits kind of deals.
It will have The Lodestone Files, Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle, Abnormal Side Effects, more stories, poems, and more extras. It will be a little black book with red font. No. Seriously.
Trust me. A lot is coming out.
Book’s three and four for Lilah, Dana, Walter…everyone.
Bud Berkman’s premiere.
Super-ultra-omega 600+ page sci-fi post-apocalyptic epic.
Sinclair Gets His Rolex, which is my superhero title [This is done by the way].
The next chapters of The Mysterious Stranger.
Last but not least…MORE BEAR GOD!
I’ll also be wrapping up some other stories, both long and short. It’s going to be only getting busier with balls going everywhere.
I hope you all enjoy this tidbit of what’s coming up and what’s in store for you.
I wish you all a s’good day/night.
Until next time,
