Today I did more organizing/phone calling/itinerary printing re: the upcoming travel, powered through some day-job work, and spent some time soul-searching with regards to my in-progress fiction projects. That last one has been the real kicker. I have a whole horde of things I want to write, but here in the real world where there are only so many hours in the day … well. Sometimes, one must pick and choose.
In the short term, this means I will likely abandon MAPLECROFT to a back burner (not forever, just for now). In the long term … hmm. Can’t talk about that too much yet. Things loom on the horizon — good things! — but they aren’t set in stone. It’s a time of flux, people. Stuff is changing. Good things are upcoming.
Among these good things upcoming, I have a formal release date for Dreadnought – which is great, since everybody’s been asking. Expect it to hit shelves September 28, 2010, which is to say, practically soon! And sooner still: Clementine, which will be out in June.
Likewise, this winter — namely the end of January, 2011 — you can also expect my debut foray into urban fantasy – Bloodshot. You may recall me recording my progress here, calling it my “fabulous urban fantasy adventure about a neurotic vampire/thief and her wealthy blind client, now with Bonus! Cuban drag queen and military intrigue.”
Yes, well. If that struck your fancy in any way, then it may interest you to know that Bloodshot officially has a cover — and if you click the link below, you will be magically transported to it …

Pretty damn cool, I tell you what.
