I'm going to be self-centered and post a couple of personal updates this week:
Got approval for Darkyn book #5, which will be a story about Jayr, Byrne and Locksley. They liked my choice for the title, too, so this one is hereby permanently dubbed Evermore.
I'm finalizing plans for the next two StarDoc novels, tentatively titled Drednoc (book #8) and Crystal Healer (book #9) for my editor's approval. From there I turn it over to the agent and they hopefully hash out a deal. Nothing is absolute yet, but at present it's looking very good.
New cover art for Night Lost, Gabriel Seran's story and Darkyn book #4, is imminent. I'll also be including a brand-new, exclusive excerpt from NL in Midnight Blues my e-book for the challenge next week (which is a ham-handed hint for the rest of you pubbed folks joining in the challenge to do the same.)
I also promised to give away a copy of the mass market edition of Afterburn this week, so I will pick one name at random from everyone who leaves a comment to this post (you can ask a question as usual, or just throw your name in the hat) by midnight EST tonight (Friday, October 27, 2006.) I'll send the winner a signed copy of Afterburn the paperback, along with a signed mass market edition of Bio Rescue so you have a matching pair.
