Where is Book 3? Status Update

By | 2017/02/11

Lately, I’ve been getting asked when Book 3 of the New Providence Series is going to be out. I owe you all an update on its progress.

It’s in the final stages right now. I have about 5k words left to wrap the thing up. I’m going to go back through it for a round of quick developmental edits after that. I don’t expect that to take too long, but I don’t want to botch any of these things either. The end result should be a consistent and coherent storyline, which ideally, kicks you in your reading place with an oversized boot.

After that’s all done, it’s going to bake for a little while with some beta readers and an editor for final tweaks.

I have a work-in-progress cover and a list of working titles for the book – I don’t think it will be called Trajectory Book 3 for reasons that will hopefully be apparent, but we’ll see. These are both in a state of flux.

If all goes according to plan, we’ll have a shiny third addition to the New Providence series in middle to late March. I am still on track to finish in six books I have planned for the series. This book marks the halfway point in the series.

Now the excuses. As always, this is taking a lot longer than expected. The past couple of months have been, frankly, a little hard to stay focused. Periods of crippling self-doubt mixed with a turbulent, real-world political upheaval in progress make it difficult to keep my brain fully-immersed in a fictional world. I can’t look away from the news entirely, because that feels, frankly, irresponsible. So, I’m sorry it’s taken this long, but I’m also not sorry, because the world is kind of fucked up right now.

Whew. Let’s get some coffee. I’m going to get back at it. Thanks for staying with me and asking about the book and leaving your wonderful reviews and feedback. I’m glad you’re here.

Put your words in the talk hole!
