News and work in progress

January has been a crazy month. I’m in the process of editing Superstruct, the first novel in the Instant Reality series that started with Hypercage. I’ve had beta reader feedback on my latest short stories in the Acid Suite, The Machine and Bad Hands. They’ve been tweaked following the feedback and are now with Laurie, my copy editor. And finally, Theatre of Death has left Patreon and is available on Amazon, including Kindle Unlimited.

For more detailed progress, check out the update below…

I’ve currently got seven projects on the go:

HyperStarr – Instant Reality Prequel Two

This is the 2nd prequel in the Instant Reality series. Picking up some of the threads from where Hypercage finished, but exploring a new story in the universe. I’ve completed the first draft of this and will start editing it once Superstruct is finished.
