irons in the fire update
Sooper-seekrit TV tie-in #1. While I've done several drafts of this, we keep getting new information about the show's upcoming season that requires me to add new material and change existing material. Nothing major, but it's keeping me from the "acceptance" part of the delivery and acceptance payment. *sigh* Still, it will make it a better book. I really look forward to being able to announce this....

Sooper-seekrit TV tie-in #2. This is a small project, just a thousand words that will be part of a nifty thing. I thought it was due early next week, but I found out yesterday (after we'd already bought tickets to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for the 9.20 show last night) that they needed it this afternoon. Oops. So I jammed on it last night and this morning (staying up until 6am and then getting up at 9.30am to finish it), and sent it off a few minutes ago.

Sooper-seekrit TV tie-in #3. This is a project I'll be doing next year, but I have to get a proposal out shortly for it. It'll be very nifty keeno, for the same property as #2 above.

Collaborative thriller. The tie-in projects have been butting in on this, but I plan to spend December jamming on this to finally finish it. All parties involved (my collaborator, the person who brought me into the project, and the guy who's got the film rights to the story) are loving what I'm doing so far, which is encouraging.

Star Trek: Prometheus. I'm in the midst of editing the English translation of this Trek trilogy that was published originally in German by Cross Cult and will be published in the States as well. Basically, I'm taking the raw translation and turning it into more solid English. I'm midway through Book 2 and should have it done in the next few days. Book 1 is done, and I'm waiting on them to send me Book 3.

Bram Gold. Once the thriller is done, this is next on the docket. About five chapters of A Furnace Sealed are already written, and I'm looking forward to jamming on the rest of it in the new year. After that, I have to figure out the plots for Books 2 and 3........

Dragon Precinct. Both Mermaid Precinct and "Baker's Dozen" (the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overdue Kickstarter story) are going to be done after I'm done with A Furnace Sealed. Dammit. After that, I will probably do more Kickstarted short fiction in the universe (since I'll have used up all the good novel titles for the series....).

Human Finder. This is my science fiction universe that's only one story old so far -- and that story, "The Stone of the First High Pontiff," was just reprinted in The Best of Defending the Future. I'm also doing a Human Finder story for Humans Wanted, the Vivian Caethe-edited anthology that was recently Kickstarted. And maybe some day, I'll write a Jin and Timm novel.....

Cassie Zukav. The latest Cassie tale, "Behind the Wheel," was just recently submitted to Frontier Publishing for their second TV Gods anthology Summer Programming. Still haven't heard if they like it or not. I have a ton of other Cassie stories to tell -- the UFO on the Dry Tortugas, the dragon in the garden behind the Bottroff House, a story called "Ragnarok and a Hard Place," a spring break story -- just waiting for time and/or markets.......

Super City Cops. The novellas Avenging Amethyst, Undercover Blues, and Secret Identities will be released next week, next month, and in February, respectively (full information here). If they're successful, there may be more -- so buy them!!!!!

Mystery. I have no idea when I'll have time to get back to this project. But I really want to. *sigh* I'm hoping that Wrenn's freelance work picks up again enough in 2017 that I'll be able to take a few months to write this.

Shirley & Jack. The first Shirley Holmes and Jack Watson story, "Identity," will be in Baker Street Irregulars Volume 1 in March (the book will be debuting at HELIOsphere), and I'll be doing a second story with them for Volume 2, the deadline for which is 31 December, so I should get a move on at some point.....

Marvel tie-ins. I have several proposals in with Joe Books that may or may not happen as followups of a sort to the "Tales of Asgard" trilogy. We'll see.

I think that's everything.......................................

Star Trek: Prometheus

Now there's a crossover I hadn't considered. Starfleet vs. the Engineers!
